I’m looking for the simplest way to charge two Apple devices (an iPhone and iPad) with lightening connectors at the same time, via a wall socket.
I thought the simplest method would be a single USB to lightening cable that split into two. But do they exist? Not that I can see. There are plenty of lightening + android split cables but I can’t find one that will power two Apple devices…
So the alternative option seems to be a twin wall charger with two separate cables. One cable too many but, hey, I can live with it. Then comes the hard part. Which of all the Anker options do I choose?
Any recommendations please on the optimum combination? Fast charging is a nice to have rather than a must have. But a good braided cable that will last is also important.
PowerPort III Duo (currently $27.99) sounds like a great fit for your devices. It will fast charge your iPhone, but possibly not your iPad depending on the model.
As far as a cable, PowerLine+ II USB-C to Lightning (currently $17.59 with coupon) is a great choice.
If you want to ensure fast charging for your iPad, PowerPort Atom PD 2 (currently $43.99 with coupon) is another fantastic option.
Hope this helps… Let me know if you have any further questions and what you ultimately decide!
I think someone done a really good comparison of available products. Have a quick search (or maybe someone nice will copy link)
The best I can do as a wall charger is this…
Anker USB-C Power Adapter, 36W 2-Port PIQ 3.0, PowerPort III Duo Type C Fast Charger, Power Delivery for iPhone 11/11 Pro / 11 Pro Max/XR/Xs/Max/X, Galaxy, Pixel, iPad Pro, and More https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VBD43H5/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_SrD2DbYXJD3BZ
Appreciate the ideas guys, thank you. Will investigate…
Any idea why no-one seems to produce a single cable that will charge two iPhones at the same time? Lightening + Android exists but I can’t seem to find 2 x Lightening…
Not sure it would be safe to charge both from a single cable, due to the draw for the iPad on top of charging an iPhone.
Best to stick to a 2 in 1 charger and 2 leads. Whichever gives the most juice, use that 1 for the iPad, and the other slot for the iPhone.
Prob someone will say why they don’t do a 2 in 1 lead… Mind I’ve not seen one for Android either. I’ve seen 3/2 in 1 where there’s different “heads” but you can only use one head at a time!
