Editor's Notes

May 12, 2020:

Selecting a fast charger entails more than just choosing the one with the highest wattage output. It's extremely important to find models from trusted manufacturers, because inconsistent production standards can lead to slow results, or worse, damage to sensitive electronics. For that reason, we decided to overhaul this wiki this time around to include devices that promise both compatibility and reliability. For example, we've included the Samsung Super Fast and Samsung Qi 2.0 in part because they're all but guaranteed to work safely, thanks to their manufacturer's well-known focus on quality control. Of course, wireless charging may or may not be the best thing for long-term when used exclusively, but for periodic topping up while at your desk, it shouldn't be a negative for most owners. Also, the Super Fast is the only phone charger we're aware of that can actually deliver 45 watts to the Note 10+. Similarly, the Belkin Boost Home and Belkin Boost Car are at or near the top of the pack, being two of the very few yet to support the most recent 4th iteration of Qualcomm Quick Charge specifications.

There are some brands that aren't quite as well known but also deliver high-quality chargers. You may have heard of Anker products as they're especially popular these days, and for good reason; the Anker PowerPort III Nano is very straightforward, the Anker PowerPort Speed 4 is highly versatile, and they're both quite safe and reliable. RavPower is another well-known brand that's on the cutting edge of power technology. The RavPower PC104 is one of the slimmest around, and while it's limited to a single output slot, the RavPower PC128 has two, and totals exactly twice the capacity of its less expensive relative.

You may not have heard of the Mu One, but if you plan on traveling to Europe at all, it's a very interesting choice. The UGreen CD161 isn't the most advanced in that it's large, and heavy, and tends to get a bit warm, but its low cost makes it a great value overall.

We've also listed some OEM options in our special honors, because if you're looking for the best possible performance, one good place to start is with your smartphone's actual manufacturer.

Special Honors

OnePlus Chargers and Bundles Whatever you do, steer clear of chargers that obviously try to copy the appearance of OEM models, because they rarely meet the same performance standards and can actually be dangerous. If you're the owner of one of OnePlus's supremely capable phones, head over to their website and select the charging wall wart and cable configuration that's right for you.

LG Chargers LG continues to up their game when it comes to mobile devices, and if you want to maximize charging speed and absolutely prevent damage to your phone, it's important to go with a real and licensed charger. At their OEM store you'll find just about every authentic option you might need.
