If you can't stand how long it takes to fully charge your phone, there are new fast charging options for mobile device users.

Apple is now offering a 29-watt charger and special cable for $74.

"Good Morning America" tested it out and found that an iPhone 8 had a 52 percent charge after 30 minutes. The same type of phone was only charged 32 percent on a standard charger.

Now an $11 charger from Anker that used a standard Apple cord was a little better than the higher end Apple high-speed charger gear.
