Best Google Pixel 7a chargers 2023

Neither the wired nor the wireless charging speeds of the Pixel 7a are impressive, but it is pretty unusual to get wireless charging on such a cheap phone. The Google Pixel 7a comes with day-long battery life, so you won't need to top it off until the next morning. You can either use a USB-C charger to recharge it or grab a wireless charger to cut the hassle with wires.

We've rounded up the best chargers that are compatible with the Pixel 7a's 18W wired and 5W wireless charging specs. There's no charging brick in the box, so you'll definitely need to grab a wall charger at least.

Wireless chargers for your Pixel 7a

Charge your Pixel 7a on the go

Keep your Pixel 7a alive and flourishing with the right charger

The brilliant little Google Pixel 7a is great in so many regards. It's rare to find a small Android phone that packs so many flagship-level features at such a phenomenal price these days. Not only does it have a 90Hz OLED panel and the Tensor G2 chipset, but the Pixel 7a is also water and dustproof. With five years of guaranteed software updates, it's a great long-term investment for anyone.

One aspect of the phone that's not as good though is the Pixel 7a's charging speed. You get a measly 18W wired charging speed through the USB-C port and 5W wireless charging support. On top of that, Google does not give you a charging brick in the box, which means you've got to buy a compatible Type-C charger.

Wireless charging on the Pixel 7a

So many people speculated about the Google Pixel 7a's wireless charging capabilities before it was unveiled. Those doubts were confirmed when the Pixel 7a made its debut at I/O 2023. The inclusion of 5W wireless charging is a first for the Pixel A series.

The best USB-C charger for the Pixel 7a is Anker's fun-sized Nano Pro 20W charger. It has a single USB-C port and it is extremely compact since it's a GaN charger. You can use it with any other Android or iOS device as well. The 20W brick from Anker is really cheap, so it won't hurt you to have to buy something as basic as a charger separately.

If you want something a little more versatile, the Voltme Revo 30W USB-C USB-A GaN charger. It costs about $10 to $12 more than the Anker Nano Pro, but it has two ports, foldable prongs, and an intuitive design.

Naturally, after getting a phone with wireless charging compatibility, you'd want to top it up wirelessly. For that, you need a wireless charging pad or stand. If you want something affordable, the last-gen Google Pixel Stand is your optimal choice. Since the Pixel 7a only supports 5W wireless charging, you don't have to worry about rated power output or compatibility issues.

After you're done shopping for chargers, why not grab a nice case or a screen protector for your Pixel 7a? These add-ons are just as essential for your Google device.
