Iphone slow charging

Bought a charging cable online from Lazada & it took 1 hour to charge from 9% to 52% & another 45 mins to hit 80%, isn't it abnormally slow ?

Any recommendation for better cables ?

It's not the cable.
It's your charging brick.

Original Apple charger. Don't think it's the brick, only thing I changed is the cable.

The cable plays a small part too. If your cable isn't MFI, high chance is that it won't charge as fast as the original.

The power brick plays the bigger role when it comes to charging speed.

The problem could be your iPhone battery. How old is your iPhone? Old batteries take longer time to charge up and quicker to discharge.

I think the battery is the issue here. Based on experience, my old 6 took very long to charge from 95%-97% and form 97% it jumped straight to 100%. Maybe check your battery health or do the battery replacement.
