Single port or multi-port: How to pick the best phone charger

There are a lot of features and priorities to try and juggle when picking the fastest phone charger, but here's the easiest way to narrow down your search quickly: How many devices do you need to charge at one time? If all you need is something to plug your phone into the wall, you can grab yourself the Anker Nano or Mophie Speedport 30 and get on with your day. Both are super-small and durable, and they should last you through at least two phones, so long as you don't yeet 'em out a window or step on one accidentally. Anker has color choices, and Mophie has folding prongs, so both are winners.

But what about if you consistently need to charge your phone and your laptop? What if you need to charge your phone and your smartwatch? Any music addicts like me who need to re-charge their earbuds every night? That's where a great charger with two or more ports changes the game. The four-port 120W charger from Spigen is a good balance with plenty of power to charge a laptop, phone, tablet, and bluetooth speaker all at once.

While you're expanding your charging collection, consider that a wall charger can't do you any good if there's nowhere to plug in while you're walking around a theme park or stuck in economy on a cross-country flight. Instead, a good power bank is the perfect companion to your new wall charger, and reliable USB-C power banks have never been more affordable. They're a great way to top up any of the best Android phones!

In my own travel backpack, I always bring along a wall charger with multiple ports (both USB-C and USB-A) as well as several charging banks. Don't forget: you'll need a port on that handy wall charger to power up the charging bank, too! Bottom line: invest well in the fastest phone charger money can buy so you get the most use out of it.
