This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in August of 2018. Since the release of the iPhone 8, Apple's popular smartphones have been able to fast-charge at up to 18 watts by taking advantage of USB Power Delivery specifications. It's important to stick with a reputable manufacturer to ensure effectiveness and safety for both rapid wall chargers and adaptive power banks. Note that to get the most out of these, you'll need a USB-C to Lightning cable. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 05, 2020:

Apple's iPhones utilize the USB Power Delivery, or PD protocol, unlike the various standards used by many Android devices, and there are three main types of charger to choose from. While there are a ton of options out there to wade through, it's very important to stick with a reliable manufacturer, because a shoddy power supply can damage sensitive electronics.

Car chargers are generally the least varied of the three types, and you'd be hard-pressed to find any that are much better than the RavPower VC019. They're also responsible for the RavPower PB201, which is a high-capacity power bank that can recharge a phone from empty to 100% multiple times and is powerful enough to drive many tablets and laptops. The Aukey PB-Y32 is another portable option, and this one's interesting because it has a built-in wireless charging pad. If you're searching for a power bank, though, the Anker PowerCore Slim is one of the best you should consider due to its reasonable capacity and small form factor.

Of course, even to charge up a power bank, you'll need a wall charger, which is the most popular and useful type of charger. The Anker PowerPort PD 2 is at the top because it's straightforward, reliable, and versatile, but if you only need one port, try the Aukey Minima or Auky Omnia. If you need to accommodate various devices at the same time, take a look at the Nekteck Wall Adapter for small budgets, and the highly capable Anker PowerPort Atom PD 4 if you can afford something a bit more costly and want a significantly more capable charger.

Special Honors

Apple Fast Charger If you're completely dedicated to the brand and insist on using only OEM equipment, Apple's website will have multiple officially certified options for you to choose from. You can find other brands with less expensive options that are similarly effective, but purists might still consider buying direct.
