Best Smartphone Chargers For The Updated Era

Do you struggle to find the best smartphone charger that you can rely on and use with ease? then keep reading here we provide the best chargers.

With all the talk of smartphone creators choosing to nix the charger in the box this year.

It might be a great time to choose up a new phone charger or two.

List Of Best Chargers

There are several different phone chargers on the market. From some famous brands like Anker, RAVPower, AUKEY, Samsung, and many.

But which ones are the most suitable for you to purchase and use with your smartphone? That’s what we’re here to tell you.

We’ve used just about all of the chargers on this list, with many phones. And know which ones are the best.

Phone chargers normally fall into two categories. USB-C chargers and USB-A chargers.

Nearly all phones issued since 2018 have USB-C, which indicates that both varieties of chargers will work for most smartphones.

Types Of Phone Chargers

1. Magnetic Charger

Maybe you’re getting annoyed having to carry around long and inconvenient cables.

If you can compare this to this in any way, then a magnetic phone charger could be the clarification to all your problems.

These aren’t widely known and I believe they’re pretty underrated too.

They allow you similar charging rates to what you’ll get from regular chargers and wireless chargers.

There are various magnetic chargers available in the market you just want to explore.

For such searchers you just want to visit techspunk, where they post an article about the best magnetic chargers, you can check it.

You’re becoming obsessed with versatility from these magnetic chargers and the best part is that they don’t cost enough.

They’re surely not anywhere near as high as wireless charging blocks.

You’ll be conserving yourself time and hassle by getting a good magnetic phone charger.

2. Dual-port Charger

This is an excellent option for a dual-port charger. As it allows both USB-A and USB-C PD for charging.

lets take one of the best inthat categories AUKEY Omnia 65W Fast Charger.

It can output 65W total, which indicates that you are not getting 65W from the USB-C PD port if you are also using a different port at the same time.

It can do 65W though, which is powerful sufficient for most USB-C laptops like the MacBook Pro. Still, if you plug your phone into the USB-C PD port, it will not charge at that speed.

Depending on the device, it may charge at 18W or even 25W. It’s a large versatile phone charger, that can further charge other products like a laptop or a smartwatch.

3. 100W USB-C PD Phone Charger

This type of charger is by far my beloved phone charger, and really, one that I use on my desk right now.

If you are now working from home for the foreseeable future, this is worth picking up.

let's pick one of them named Anker PowerPort Atom PD 4.

It has two USB-C PD ports and two USB-A ports, that can output 100W total.

It can do 100W total on the USB-C port, so it is fast just to charge a laptop.

But if you have other appliances plugged in at a similar time, then the power will be distributed among the four ports.

It’s a criminal charger to have, as you can charge several different things at the same time and not worry about having enough outlets.

4. USB-C PD Car Charger

In this type one of the famous brands, probably knows Spigen from the many cases that it makes for different smartphones.

But they make different smartphone accessories too. Like this car charger.

This is a 45W car charger that offers USB-C PD up to 27W and then a USB-A port.

So you can get quick charging even while you are riding down the road, which is a cool thing to have.

The USB-A port uses Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 for speed too, so even if you aren’t using the USB-C port, you are yet getting some great speed here.

5. 25W Phone Charger

Most of this charger that Samsung holds in the box with the Galaxy S20, Note 20 series, and the Z Fold 2.

It’s a 25W USB-C PD charger that can also be used with other tools, and since it’s only $13, it’s a great option.

It uses USB-C PD and PPS, which is a newer technology designed to make faster charging even safer.

So it’s no surprise that Samsung is using it. But we will see more smartphones using it shortly.

If you own a Samsung smartphone and need to use the full 25W speed that it has, then this is the charger to get.

And it can never hurt to have a second one laying around.

6. Travel-friendly Phone Charger

AUKEY has made a great charger to take when you travel. This charger here is an 18W USB-C PD charger that has a foldable plug.

That is wonderful because it’ll take up less room in your bag and also protect the plug from becoming damaged from other things in your bag.

This is a pretty tiny charger in the first place but still offers up some great charging speeds.

Which makes it a great option for taking on the go with you. That is when we can travel once again.

7. Portable Charger

Not all chargers require to be ones that you plug into the wall. There are manageable ones too, and this one from AUKEY is one of our favorites.

We prefer this one because it is super slim, and offers 10,000mAh of power. Which is just to charge most smartphones at least once.

And it’s small enough to suit in your pocket without any real issues.

That is an awesome feature. There are 3 USB-A ports possible here, as well as a micro USB and a USB-C port that can be used for input.

Bottom Line

These are some of the best chargers. Hope you will find it somehow informative.
