No such thing as future proof

If it's Samsung then they have this one: https://www.samsung.com/ca/mobile-acces ... 845XBEGCA/Gangsta101 wrote: ↑ Interesting. I will research this oneplus charger some more.
The problem is that my next phone is likely going to be another Samsung phone, and Samsung is notorious for pushing a different standard from everyone else, but luckily it seems they've bought into PD chargers now, so lets see.

Great response! There seem to be a lot of people who think that smartphone batteries only last two years, and it's because they don't know or care about the real limitations of their gear. High temperatures, and extremes of state of charge (for prolonged time), do cumulative damage to lithium ion batteries.

I attest to that. I rarely use fast chargers because they overheat the battery and lower capacity over time. I have a iPhone XS Max that is now 2 years old and it’s still at 95% battery life. I use it daily and quite often as I need to take client calls. I never charge over night if I can help it and will always charge when I can up to 80% during the day.IanBrantford wrote: ↑ Great response!

I have fast chargers, for when I really need to use one. That's not very often. Most of the time, I let my phones charge at 5-10 watts overnight. If I am not going to use a phone for a while, I'll try to stop it around 50% before turning it off, which is how new phones ship for good shelf life.
Anker makes the best aftermarket gear, and supports fast charging for many brands that have proprietary enhancements. I guess that they pay the licence fees. in many cases, their equipment is of higher quality than OEM (especially Apple cables). If Anker doesn't have what you need, wait for it, or just get what they have now and skip the very fastest charging to the benefit of your phone anyway.

Yep, got that enabled when iOS 14 updated.Dhanushan wrote: ↑ Have you enabled Optimized Battery Charging?
"iPhone has a setting that helps slow the rate of your battery’s aging by reducing the time it spends fully charged. This setting uses machine learning to understand your daily charging routine, then waits to finish charging past 80% until you need it."
