The U.K. version is quite nice, it has the folding pins which was previously only available in a 5w version.

So no more bitching about the price of a fast charger??? lol. Who am I kidding. Apple could sell these for $5 and people would still complain.

Do people stop to think that maybe apple doesn’t include a fast charger because they know it’s going to kill the battery faster???

Someday, when Apple stops acting like its too good for the rest of the world, there will be a “universal” cable that can be used to charge EVERY device. They should call it USB-C.
No, not a USB-C to lightning cable.
That would defeat the whole purpose of being “universal.”
Get with it already Apple.
