Best 100W USB-C chargers 2024

Once upon a time, getting 100W of power meant lugging around an ungainly brick with a barrel plug, but now the best USB-C chargers can deliver all of that power over a USB-C port. The Power Delivery standard (PD) has enabled USB-C charging for even high-end professional laptops quickly and will charge even lower-powered devices like Chromebooks and phones alongside your laptop with ease.

Gallium nitride (GaN) has also allowed power bricks to be smaller and more efficient so carrying around a 100W charger actually doesn't take up that much space in your backpack. You'll also want to make sure you've got a 100W capable USB-C cable, which many of the best USB-C cables do.

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

If you search for 100W chargers online, you'll find dozens of results from brands you've heard of and some you haven't, but if it doesn't have Power Delivery, just turn around and 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 — it's only useful for charging a bunch of smaller devices. That can be useful but if you need to render out a project while charging your PC as much as possible, you'll want full power.

Now that most mobile devices like Chromebooks, Macs, and Windows computers as well as phones, and handheld game consoles use USB-C for power, it makes sense to find a charger that can properly juice them up. Even if you need to charge up on the go using some of the best portable chargers and power banks, USB-C with PD is your best bet. This is why the Anker 727 Charging Station gets the win on this list due to its substantial 100W Power Delivery, variety of ports, and charging options.

Most USB-C chargers only have one USB-C port capable of delivering the full 100W of power with the others configured for lower power for phones and tablets. This setup can make sense for those with only a single laptop. Still, if you're in a family that might need to charge two Chromebooks at once after school, multiple Android phones, or a laptop 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.

While 50W is not exactly over the top, it should charge up most laptops when you're not burning through battery with hardcore gaming or video rendering. If you've got a nice high-power USB-C power supply, it's also great for charging your power-hungry devices or recharging an excellent high-capacity power bank.
