Hello Guys welcome to Techcrowder with due respect today in this article we are talking about Apple Watch fast charging. Fast charging requires an Apple USB-C Magnetic Fast Charging Cable. This cable has aluminum around the magnetic charger and a USB-C connector. Apple Watch fast charging: How it works, and what you need for best results
You also need one of these power adapters: Apple 18W, 20W, 29W, 30W, 61W, 87W, or 96W USB-C Power Adapter. One of the more useful changes to recent Apple Watch models is support for fast charging.
This allows you to charge your Apple Watch battery much faster than before. There are a few things to consider, and you don’t get everything you need in the box.
Apple Watch comes with an Apple USB-C Magnetic Fast Charge Cable. As we previously reported, the difference with this cable is that it has aluminum instead of plastic around the magnetic charger.

Apple Watch fast charging: How it works, and what you need for best results
While Apple includes one of these cables with the Apple Watch Series 7, Series 8, and Ultra, you can also purchase them separately so you can add fast-charging support to all of your charging points.
The cable is 1m long and available for $29. The model number for the cable is A2515, so make sure you buy that specific model if you’re buying from a third party other than Apple or Amazon.
When Apple released the Series 7 in the fall of 2021, it was the first time it gave an Apple Watch the ability to charge faster. Specifically,
it could charge 33-percent faster than any previous Apple Watch. You could charge its battery from 0-to-80-percent in just 45 minutes.
Since then, Apple has released a couple of new Apple Watch models. There’s the Series 8, the Ultra and the SE 2. All of them support fast charging except the SE 2, which charges at the same speed as every Apple Watch that’s Series 6 or before.
However, there are a couple important caveats to these fast charging abilities. The reason the new Apple Watch models are able to charge faster is due to their new charging architecture,
which is built right into each smartwatch, as well as the new charging cable-and-puck ($29) that comes with them.
The third piece of the puzzle is a USB-C wall adapter that are 5-watts or higher and supports Power Delivery (PD). This is important because the Series 7, Series 8 and Ultra don’t ship with any wall adapter in the box,
so you’ll want to buy one (if you don’t have one already) that’s powerful enough to fast charge it. The minimum wall adapter that Apple sells that will deliver these fast charging speeds is the 20-watt USB-C wall adapter ($20).
Which Apple Watch models support fast charging?
The following Apple Watch variants allow for fast charging:
Apple Watch Series 7
Apple Watch Series 8
Apple Watch Ultra
Apple says that with fast charge, your Apple Watch battery level can go from 0-80% in about 45 minutes. Apple has a support document detailing the specifics of fast charging with the Apple Watch Series 7, Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra.
Included with the Apple Watch is an Apple USB-C Magnetic Fast Charging Cable. As we’ve previously reported, the difference with this cable is that it has aluminum instead of plastic around the magnetic charger.
While Apple is including one of these cables in the box with Apple Watch Series 7, Series 8, and Ultra, you can also buy them separately so you can outfit all of your charging spots with fast charge support.
The cable measures 1m in length and is available for $29. The model number for the cable is A2515, so make sure you’re buying that specific model if you purchase from a third party other than Apple or Amazon.
The second part of the equation is the power adapter that you plug into the wall. As part of its continued focus on reducing its environmental footprint.
Apple no longer includes this power brick in the box. This means you’ll have to use one that you already have or buy a new one.
Apple says that any USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery of 5W or better is capable of Apple Watch fast charging. You can find these on Amazon from reputable brands such as UGreen for as little as $13.
Here are the specifications from Apple:
Apple 18W, 20W, 29W, 30W, 61W, 87W, or 96W USB-C Power Adapter
A comparable third-party USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) of 5W or greater
Finally, if you use Apple’s MagSafe Duo or its Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, you can’t tap into fast-charging capabilities,
regardless of which cable or power adapter you use. You could, however, place the fast charger puck in a third-party dock of any sort.
