What type of charging accessories work with the 2020 iPhone 12 series? Here is a look at the ZMI products that are compatible.
All of the new iPhone 12 phones regardless of size or model will come with a USB-C to Lightning charging cord in the box. In fact, that is the only accessory that will come in the box if you are in the United States. Since not everyone has a USB-C charger at home, the first thing that you may need to get is a USB-C charger that works with the new iPhone.
Apple has a 20W USB-C charger that's currently $19.00. ZMI has an 18W USB-C charger for only $9.99. Both of these chargers will charge the iPhone 12 (and earlier iPhone's starting with the iPhone 8) at up to 18W.
In addition, if you already have a MacBook Pro (2016 or newer) or a MacBook Air (2018 or newer), then you may not need to get a separate USB-C charger. It is safe for you to charge your iPhone 12 with the same USB-C charger for your MacBook Pro or Air. Likewise, if you have an iPad Pro charger (2018 or newer), you'll already have a USB-C charger you can use with the iPhone 12.
Although the iPhone 12 lineup comes with the USB-C to Lightning in the box, it may be handy to have a backup in case the original cord goes missing or gets broken. At ZMI, we have a braided USB-C to Lightning cord, which is reinforced with ballistic fibers and a fray-resistant sleeve for greater durability. On Apple's store, you can find a similar braided cord from mophie for $24.95. ZMI's braided USB-C to Lightning cord is $11.99 for the 1 meter long cable, while the 1 foot long cable is $10.99.
If you're on-the-go a lot and need a more portable option for charging the iPhone 12, ZMI has a wide selection of portable power banks and backup batteries to do the job. Here are the ones that will work best for the iPhone 12.
The PowerPack 10K USB-C power bank is compact and ultra-portable. It has a USB-C port, so it will charge the iPhone 12 if you use the USB-C to Lightning cable that Apple provides. The PowerPack 10K USB-C power bank is the smallest and most lightweight power bank that we recommend for the iPhone 12. It is ideal for people who want a couple extra charges for their iPhone when they are traveling or hiking.
An even better option is the PowerPack 10K with USB-C and Lightning. This is an upcoming product that has the same form factor as the PowerPack 10K USB-C power bank, but it has a Lightning input port, so you can use the same USB-C to Lightning cord to charge your iPhone 12 to also recharge the power bank. Just reverse the cable and plug the USB-C end into a USB-C power adapter or wall charger.
Lastly, we recommend the PowerPack Aura 20K power bank for iPhone 12 users that need more juice during their travels. While the other power banks we have recommended are 10,000 mAh power banks, this one is 20,000 mAh, so you'll be able to get more charges for the iPhone 12. It also has a USB-C port for fast charging. Unfortunately, this power bank does not have the convenience of the Lightning input port, so you'll need to use one of the USB-C cables that we provide in the box to recharge it.
This was a summary of ZMI's charging accessories for the newly released iPhone 12 phones. We hope that this helped you find a product with the features that will meet your needs.
