Best Samsung Galaxy S22 chargers 2022

Just about any USB-C cable can charge your Galaxy S22 but to get powered up as fast as possible, you'll need the right charger. The base S22 can charge at up to 25W, while the S22+ and the S22 Ultra can reach charging speeds of up to 45W, but only if you use a charger with both Power Delivery (PD) and Programmable Power Supply (PPS) support. Here are some of the best Galaxy S22 chargers that'll ensure you get the best experience out of your new smartphone(s).

These are the best charging bricks for your S22

Power Delivery brings more choice and flexibility

Samsung's 45W Super Fast Charging Wall Charger is surprisingly affordable, but the lack of folding plugs means it's best suited for a home environment rather than carrying around in your backpack. If you're frequently on the move, go for a more compact (or more adaptable) option like the Anker Nano II or the Baseus 3-Port 65W foldable charger. Anker's Nano II can also charge your best Chromebooks (among other devices), making it a one-stop solution. No matter what phone or laptop you want to juice up, this golf-ball-sized adapter will fast-charge them all.

While 45W charging is limited to the Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra, you should consider buying a 45W (or higher) charger for the regular Samsung Galaxy S22 as well. 45W is laptop-capable charging speed, so you'll be getting an accessory that's powerful enough to potentially charge every device in your bag during trips — or even at home, if you're living the "one charger to rule them all" lifestyle. It's far better to have a more powerful, widely adaptable charger than one that can only charge your phone in the age of USB Power Delivery.

You'll still only get 25W max speed with a 45W charger on the small Galaxy S22, so don't worry about it breaking your battery. The Programmable Power Supply protocol that Samsung's Super Fast Charging is built on uses a high-quality e-marked cable to negotiate just how much power the charger sends to the phone. You'll need to pick one of these up, too, if your charger didn't come with one, as Samsung only ships a 25W cable with the Galaxy S22.
