Best 100W USB-C chargers 2022

Once upon a time, getting one of the best 100W USB-C chargers meant it would be bulky, expensive, and proprietary. Now with Power Delivery, you can now find 100W chargers, with 160W charging on the way, that will charge even the most powerful laptops quickly and will charge even lower-powered devices like Chromebooks and phones, alongside your laptop with ease. The scene is shifting on 100W chargers pretty quickly these days as gallium nitride (GaN) starts making its way into this class of charger.

What to look for in a 100W Charger: Power Delivery

There are many 100W multi-port chargers out there, but if it doesn't have Power Delivery, just turn around and walk away. Just walk away! Without a Power Delivery USB-C port that can offer 87W or more — preferably 20V/5A 100W charging if your devices support it — then it's only useful for charging a bunch of smaller devices, not for charging a laptop while you're editing or gaming.

Now that so many devices like laptops, Chromebooks, phones, and more are using UBC-C for power, it makes sense to find a charger that can properly juice them up and even let you take it on the go. This is why the Anker 547 Charging Station gets the win on this list due to its small size and substantial 100W Power Delivery.

Most 100W PD chargers like the Zendure SuperPort 4 either only have one USB-C port or if they have two, the first port is 87W-100W, and the second port is capped at 18W. This configuration is great if you're always charging a phone and a laptop, but if you're in a family that might need to charge two Chromebooks, multiple Android phones, or a laptop and a 26,000mAh power bank the night before your family vacation, you need something more. Anker can intelligently distribute power based on what's plugged in, but more importantly, you can plug in two laptops and get up to 50W of power to each of them.

50W is over top speed on every Chromebook available at the moment, and it's enough that it should charge up most Windows and Mac laptops when you're not burning through battery with hardcore gaming or video rendering. If you're looking for a 100W charger that you can use for you, your partner, or for the whole family to use in the living room, that makes the Anker the only real choice.
