You will need a USB-C Power Delivery adapter that’s least 9V/2.03A to hit 12W MegSafe Output on iPhone 12 mini, though Apple note charging efficiency can be affected by factors like system activity and temperature.
Reaching the zenith power delivery of 15W on other iPhone 12 models requires a USB-C adapter that’s at least 9V/2.22A or 9V/2.56A.
