" ...  Using this USB C to lightning cable with an Anker USB C PD car charger and it works great with my iPhone XR! ... !~ When plugged in below 80% battery, my iPhone XR beep/ding as normal followed by a second beep/ding confirming PD fast charge. ... Folks, as for the iPhone fast charge double beep/ding, the time interval between the 1st & 2nd beep/ding is 5~6 seconds so do not be concerned if you don't hear a quick "ding-ding". ... I haven't had a chance to fully test the "50% in 30 mins fast charge" but based on what I've seen in the past week of use, I've noticed the battery percentage climb up faster compared to my previous setup (12W car charger with a USB A to lightning cable). ... Along with the double beep/ding, I have no doubt I can get 50% in 30 mins charge performance from this cable. ... I have used a wide variety of Anker products (chargers, cables, batteries, etc.)  ...  "
