iPhone Fast-Charge: What It Does and What It Does Not Do

iPhone 6 (as well as other iPhones) get fast-charged only till about 80% battery level. After that, the charging current drops drastically and it does not matter whether you use a 1 amp charger or 2 amp charger. This makes fast-charging in iPhone 6 most effective only when the battery is at a very low level. For example, iPhone 6 will get charged from empty battery to 50% in about 60 minutes by the standard iPhone charger but it will get fast-charge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes from a 2.4 amp charger, saving half the charging time (30 minutes). Difference in charge durations will be much lower once you go above 60%.
