My phone is my life: My music, notifications, and endless distractions are all controlled through my favorite Android phone. While phone batteries get better every year, there's no denying that we all start feeling that creeping anxiety whenever that little percentage in the status bar drops below 30%. So whether you lost your old charger, it finally died after one too many yanks on the cord, or you just need an extra to ensure that you're never stranded with a dead phone, these USB-C Power Delivery chargers are the best phone chargers for charging at home, at work, or any errant coffee bar you find yourself holed up in while that storm passes.

Anker's latest upgrade does it all. Folding prongs for great portability, 30W charging maximum, and a smart chip inside this GaN charger to ensure your phone, smartwatch, or tablet is getting the right wattage at all times. It's also tiny at 70% reduced size when compared to the original Anker 30W charger.
Perfect pocket charger
Aukey has newer versions based on the Omnia line, but they're either bigger or lack folding prongs, which means the Minima is still the one to beat. Want a perfectly pocket-friendly charger for your purse, pocket, or gear bag? This one's for you!
Charge your computer, too
This more expensive charger is worth the price because it's one charger that can give your smartphone, tablet, and even laptop a boost. It boasts an impressive 120W power with four ports including both USB-C and USB-A. Don't worry because it has technology to intelligently detect what's plugged in and deliver the necessary power to recharge it optimally.
This is the charger that came in the box with the S10 series, S20 series, and Note 10/20 series, but since it doesn't come with the latest Galaxy devices — or if you just need another one to keep in the office or the living room — Samsung has lowered the price of its charger, so it's easier to buy spares. It also comes with a three-foot cable.
Best for tight spaces
Need a wall charger for an area with really tight clearance, like between a nightstand and the wall? Nekmit's sleek 30W charger will fit back there easily, and it has both USB-C and USB-A ports, as well as PD 3.0.
Best for OnePlus
If you have a OnePlus phone, you can use regular Power Delivery chargers, but you'll see your fastest speeds when using one of the OnePlus special chargers. The Warp Charge standard is based on higher amperage, which needs extra precautions hardware-wise.
This charging bundle includes a multi-port 65W Power Delivery charger and a USB-C cable, everything you need to charge your Chromebook, laptop, tablet, and phone in one compact, easy-to-carry package. It's even powerful enough to recharge your computer, too.
More USB-C ports in one
No matter how many posts a USB-C charger has, it never seems like enough. This 100W charger doesn't have one PD USB-C port and a bunch of USB-As but a single USB-A and three USB-Cs. Despite the higher cost because of this, you'll appreciate being able to charge all your devices, including your phone, more quickly and at once.
Charge it all at once
This is a hybrid between those big bulky desktop charging stations and slimmer, smaller wall chargers. You get one USB-C port that offers up to 45W for laptops and three USB-A ports for smaller or older accessories that don't support PD.
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 best 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 Aukey Minima 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 Aukey 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 dual-port charger, or ones with even more than two ports, changes the game. It makes a little extra investment upfront pay off in the long-term.
The Baseus 65W 3-Port charger is the perfect charger duo for keeping all your gear topped off wherever life takes you. I'm partial to the dual USB-C charger because Power Delivery is the future. With the latest iPhones now having USB-C ports as well, it's the most versatile charging standard around.
Still, there's also a USB-C and USB-A variant for those who need a USB-A port in their lives still for older peripherals and accessories that don't support Power Delivery charging (like my favorite headphones).
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 recharge the charging bank, too! Bottom line: invest well so you get the most use out of it.
