Ultra-fast charging systems allow you to top up your devices in minutes. But are they worth your money? And which charger should you buy? Here’s our look at the options.
- What is the fastest charging system? Huawei Super Charge offers the fastest uptake of power at 46.57mAh/min.
- Which is faster to charge: Samsung or Apple? Samsung is the winner here. In fact, iPhones are surprisingly slow.
