I feel like I'm posting about USB too much here, but people keep asking because it's easy to get confused about it. I just copied the table I made a while ago in a comment and added FAQs and notes for outside the US.

I hope this answers what people are really looking for better than the other threads.

Do you have some specific need I didn't answer? Have a USB-C charger you're curious about that isn't listed? Ask in a comment. Just keep in mind that (other than the iPad one) USB-A chargers won't give you good speeds. This includes the chargers bundled with even the most recent phones by Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG, and HTC.

I'll use this comment to note some USB-C chargers I'm aware of but don't recommend:

---------

Charging speeds vary


These chargers can give the Switch great speeds sometimes, but usually they're closer to just "okay". It seems to be random every time you plug it in. If the Switch is completely turned off (not just in sleep) when you plug it in, you'll almost always get those "great" speeds for as long as you keep it plugged in even after turning the Switch back on and playing. This happens because Nintendo's implementation of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) is very buggy. They're a hassle to use right for now, so I don't recommend them, especially since there are better alternatives now.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
--|--|--|--
Anker PowerPort+ 5|$39.99|Amazon|Use the USB-C port. It also offers 4 USB-A ports. No USB cables included.
RAVPower 26800mAh USB-PD battery|$79.99|Amazon|
UGREEN 30W USB-PD charger|$17.99|Amazon|No cable included.

----------

Safety issues


These don't damage the Switch, but they can damage other USB-C cables and devices, especially if you plug them in to something that doesn't make sense, like another charger. If you know how to use them right and you're careful, you won't damage anything, but why risk it? Get something else.

Charger|Link|Notes
--|--|--
CHOETECH USB C 15W charger|Amazon|
Anker PowerPort+ 1 USB-C QC3.0|Amazon|Any USB-C port that offers QC3.0 has known issues

----------

Great but expensive


If you have a USB-C laptop, feel free to get one of these, but otherwise don't bother. Plenty of chargers in my OP work just as well with Switch and are much cheaper.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
--|--|--|--
Google 60W USB-C charger|$59.99|Google|Bundled with Chromebook Pixel 2, great for laptops, very long 12ft cable
Apple 61W USB-C charger|$69|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with 2016 13" MacBook Pro, no cable included when bought on its own. The 15-inch model's 87W charger is probably great too.
Apple 29W USB-C charger|$49|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with non-Pro MacBooks, no cable included when bought on its own. Poor speeds with most other non-Apple devices.
Innergie 45W USB-C charger|$59.99|Amazon|Works with the dock, great with laptops and phones too.

---------

Unconfirmed speeds (and expensive)


These chargers are also too expensive to recommend. They probably work great, but I haven't seen any reports of people actually trying any of them. They all probably work with the dock too. If anybody has one of these, please tell me if it works with the dock.

I recommend going to a group page called LTE HACKS and signing up. It's a private group but they will accept you and tell you everything you need to know. It's a great community of a lot of very knowledagble and helpful people. You will eventually fall into the LTE internet rabbit hole and contemplate frankensteining routers with chinese branded LTE modems before long just to chase the speed dragon. It's intense.

Reposting because my self post was removed...

Wall of text incoming...

After spending a good portion of my weekend researching USB-C PD, Quickcharge, the effects of cable gauge on amperage, etc., I think I finally understand USB charging over USB A and USB C via both PD and QuickCharge.

Before my current HTC 10, which is a Quick Charge 3.0 device, I had a Pixel and, prior to that, a Nexus 5X. So my entire experience with USB C charging was via USB Power Delivery, which worked very well. USB C AC adapters and USB C-C cables always quick charged my devices, presumably at 15w(3a/5v). Whenever I used a different charger, usually a USB-A brick with an A-C cable, they charged around 10w(2a/5v) or 5w (1a/5v); i.e. normal USB charging speeds.

Quick Charge 3.0 over USB-C has thrown a bit of a wrench into that. From what I can tell, QC 3.0 tops out at 19.5w, but supports a range of voltages at 1.5a, 2a, and 3a to maximize charging speed and efficiency. QC3 is connector agnostic and should work over over USB A, C, and micro. QC3.0 over USB-C is not strictly within USB-C spec, but as long as it is implemented safely, does not seem to cause any issues.

However, what's really throwing me for a loop is this Anker product here and article #1 and article #2.

First, the Anker charger is a USB-C charger that simultaneously claims to be QC3.0 certified AND claims to deliver full charging speeds to the Nexus USB-C PD devices and warns that it will not quick charge the HTC 10 and LG G5, which are both QC3.0 devices. According to EVERYTHING I've stated and read, this should not be possible.

Also, the first article says that the HTC 10 is capable of charging via a standard USB C-C connection at 10w(2a/5v). Is this newsworthy? Is this truly USB-C Power Delivery? I was under the impression that PD defined power profiles from 3a-5a, up to 100watts. As far as I can tell, any device, power delivery or not, should be able to pull 2a if supported by the device and cable.

Finally, the second article states that the HTC 10 does pull 15w(3a/5v) over USB PD, but doesn't do so "well." Is this then proof that the HTC 10 does in fact fully support USB PD over proper chargers?

Any information that can help me sort all this out would be greatly appreciated. That said, I've purchased a USB-C amperage meter, have 3 different USB A-C cables, a mix of USB-A power adapters and plan to purchase some USB-C cables and chargers to test as well (sold my previous ones with my Nexus and Pixel devices.)

Be mindful of what accessories you personally need. People needs are different. The only global accessories that seem to be useful to everyone:


  1. A screen protector. This applies to pretty much any tablet accessory where the screen is not covered by design (like the 3DS clam shell). This is the one I got and it works well ($9.00):

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N3ASPNV/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1


  2. A carrying case. Being portable, odds are you will want to take it out at some point. Seeing it's an expensive piece of hardware, it makes sense to have a case to put everything in it for protection. You can buy the neat ones with colors and crazy designs and space, but for me, this basic one works perfectly fine ($13.00):

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06X97FLWF/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


  3. An extra charger. Unless you already have a Type C charger, you will likely want to get one. Usually goes for $15.00.

    https://www.amazon.com/Charger-CHOETECH-Included-Nintendo-Supported/dp/B017I7EX46/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1506098286&sr=1-8&keywords=switch+charger


  4. If, and ONLY if you plan to get your games digitally, you WILL want an additional memory card. The one I paste below has enough space for at least 20 games given the average game space that we've seen so far (BoTW takes 14 GB, but Mario Odyssey takes 5.5 Gb, so in average, it evens out.). Note this is only the games you can have installed at a time, you can always remove one or more if you want to download another one, and games you purchase digitally will always be available for re download as long as the eshop exists.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V62XBQQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1


    Any other accessory should REALLY be considered on a need-to basis. Not everyone needs a pro controller (depending on the games you play, I've been fine without it with only BoTW, Mario Kart, Fate/Extella and Mario+Rabbids.), and not everyone needs an extra, improved stand/dock.

    Finally, do some research on what games you will actually want to play. What I've seen is that games on the switch are NOT cheap, and unless you have extra disposable income, buying a game you don't really play can lower your overall appreciation of the system. Not only that, but because releases are sparse at the moment, it's easier to jump into the hype in order to keep using your shiny new hardware. Though that really applies to any console.
u/DarienStegosaur · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

It sounds like you have not actually ordered yet, so here's a suggestion for Bluetooth earbuds:

Anker Soundbuds Slim are very similar to the ones you are looking at, but they support aptX HD (So they will sound better and have lower latency) and are cheaper. I have the Soundbuds Curve which feature a slightly different design. They are super comfortable and sound great, so I expect the Slims will work just as well. Lots of people recommend both styles in any thread asking for Bluetooth suggestions.


I really like this wall charger. Bluetooth headphones that charge via USB-C are basically non-existent, so this lets me charge the accessories while also charging my phone at full speed.

The Whitestone Dome is good, but they have awful customer service if you have any issues. Especially since you are going through a forwarder, taking weeks to get a resolution if you have an issue might be a deal breaker for you.

u/Imlulse · 3 pointsr/Surface

Fark, had this long ass post written and closed the tab by mistake... Imma try and Cliff's Notes it, feel free to ask any questions tho since I've been all in on USB-C PD for a while and I know it can be pretty confusing. First some useful links:

https://surfacetip.com/surface-go-with-standard-usb-charger-charging-speed/

https://surfacetip.com/surface-go-usb-c-charging/

https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-usb-c-macbook-and-laptop-chargers/

It might actually be more useful to you to read the Wirecutter guide first if you need a primer on USB-C Power Delivery and then the first two links after... Long story short, the Go isn't very demanding of chargers. Stock magnetic charger is more than fine.

I do think it's useful to grab a (cheaper) USB-C PD charger in addition to the magnetic one tho, thay way you can leave the latter plugged in at home and the USB-C PD charger in your bag and you don't need to plug and unplug stuff nearly as much; that's what I'm doing anyway.

Even a phone charger will charge the Go relatively quickly (if you're not actively using it) if it's USB-C PD capable and rated for at least 18W (pretty common, tho some only do 15W or are dumb 5V/3A - 15W chargers without PD smarts); ~2h17m with an 18W charger vs like 1h45m with the stock one FWIW. A decent USB-C PD charger will also charge your phone, USB-C battery banks, etc just fine so it's handy. USB-C PD auto negotiates proper charge rate.

You don't need much more than a 30W charger for the Go but prices are so close that if you're getting a USB-C PD charger anyway you might as well get something beefier that can also charge other laptops, a Nintendo Switch, etc. The <$30 60W Nekteck Wirecutter recommends looks like a great value once you take into account that it comes with a good, USB-IF certified, 2m cable.

I've not used it but I'm using their car chargers and they've held up great (both the 45W and the 23W). For my bag and for charging the Go I ended up splurging on this 61W Ravpower Gallium Nitrate model that Wirecutter raved about not long ago... Their one qualm was the original $50 price but it's already been on sale for $36-40, I think it's tiny size is worth the premium but that's just me:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TC53ZYD

Edit: Just as a point of clarification or in case you see conflicting info, the Go can pull pretty close to 30W when the battery is really low (stock charger only goes up to 24W)...

You can see it briefly pulled ~26W on a 45W charger in the second link I included above, but as with all modern electronics the charge rate slows down as the battery charge fills up so in the end a faster charger (like the full size Surface Pro charger or any of the PD ones I linked) makes < 10 min. difference in total charge time. Not worth swapping out the stock charger over that IMO unless you just really hate it's outlet hogging form factor.

u/enki941 · 1 pointr/ipad

Thanks! I appreciate the detailed response. So it sounds like I don't really need to worry about anything, at least in terms of anything getting damaged. I already bought a few cables (all Anker, but also all USB 2.0) but will look into upgrading them down the road to 3.1g2 so I can take better advantage of the faster data and charging.

Quick follow-up question RE #4 -- I'm not an electrical expert by any stretch, but my understanding was always that when dealing with electronics that voltage was always the most important thing to match up. In other words, if you have a device that uses X volts, make sure whatever power supply you connect only supplies X volts, otherwise it can cause damage. For amperage, again my understanding was that as long as you were providing at LEAST what it needed, than that was fine since you could provide more and it wouldn't cause any issues (it can only draw what it needs and no more). Then the wattage is the product of the two, so 5V * 3000mAh = 15 watts. Even if you provided 6000mAh, it wouldn't necessarily draw that or increase the wattage. But it looks like USB-C chargers support various voltages as well, which can greatly impact power situation, which had me concerned. I ended up buying this one since it had good reviews, I got it for $14 with a coupon, and it says it support 5, 9, 12, 15 and 20V power output (and assume at least one of those is iPad compatible).

Thanks again!

  • 2-3 tide pods because it could be a few days or a week before you get to the PX
  • If you know your sleeping arrangements, buy a "bed in a bag" for that bed size. Nothing like having your own good sheets to slide into after a rough day. Make sure you wash everything before heading over, so they're soft and ready to go when you get there.
  • A collapsable shoe organizer that you can use to store gitch, socks, t-shirts, etc, or even a collapsable sweater organizer (or two) if you want more horizontal space and less vertical.
  • If you're coming home or going somewhere on HLTA, don't forget to pack a civvie-pattern backpack. Don't be the guy wandering around a foreign airport wearing your day pack and combat boots in jeans.
  • Birthday/Anniversary/special event cards that you can mail from your location (shows you were thinking of them well in advance of your departure and before the event). Bonus points if it's a mushy anniversary card to a significant other, ensuring that your return is "extra special".
u/k1ick · 1 pointr/lgv20

Apparently the charger that comes with the phone only supports Quick Charge 2 but the V20 supports Quick Charge 3. Not a huge change from 2 to 3, mainly just more efficient at charging so less energy lost as heat. But if you are interested in getting the most out of your charger I would recommend this one (I actually bought the single port version but for some reason I can't find it again.) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AHX1ABW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_v3Pjyb498MGGR

If you're looking for a good car charger then this one is great, has Quick Charge 3 and has 2 ports which is great for long car trips. (I have their older version that has Quick Charge 2 instead) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A4ZGLZ8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Y3PjybTG7N6S8

u/MyNameIsAdam · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I hate researching power banks and chargers. I had decided on the Anker Powercore II 10K and Powerport Speed II but now I'm reconsidering.

Battery Packs: Anker Powercore II 10k(6.9oz) vs. Ravpower Slim 10k(6.8oz)

Ravpower is slightly lighter, and claimed charge time might be slightly faster at 3.5-4 hours compared to 4 hours on the anker. I also prefer the slim form factor.

Wall Chargers: Anker Powerport Speed II(4.6oz) vs. Aukey Dual Port Turbo Charger(4.09oz)

Aukey seems like an equally capable charger but half an ounce lighter.

I might be overthinking it, but the above Anker products are probably the most recommended around here so I want to make sure I'm not missing something.

Other suggestions are welcome to of course.

And while I'm here, anyone have a good source for short cables? Ideal would be in the 6"-12" range that support up to 18w. Need USB A to USB C, and USB A to Micro USB.

u/Ellsass · 2 pointsr/onebag

Great write-up. I'm probably going to buy those pants and maybe another item or two. Even after ~10 long one-bag trips I'm still working on refining my load.

> USB drive x2 – My laptop’s hard drive isn’t huge, so I use these for extra storage.

Check out these tiny Sandisk drives. They're so small you could probably just leave them in your MacBook all the time.

> One thing my bag is missing that I wish I’d had: A European USB charger.

I recommend picking up some small, cheap adapters (look around and you can find even smaller ones) and coupling them with your USB chargers from home.

I prefer multi-port, high-speed chargers (2+ amps/port) such as this one. Even better, grab a 4-port charger if you have more than 2 devices to charge. While Airbnbs have plenty of outlets, hotels are often skimpy—and one of them is consumed by your MacBook—so it's essentially to be able to charge all of your devices with just one outlet.

> Google Maps

Check out the offline maps app called Galileo Pro. It's designed specifically for offline mapping. Google Maps is my #1 choice when I have a connection but it's pretty clunky about offline data. Galileo has tons of points of interest, it can import custom Google maps, and it'll even cache Wikipedia articles related to the area & sights. I've tried tons of offline mapping solutions and this is my favorite. There's a free version as well, but Pro is well worth the petty cash price.

u/fidelisoris · 1 pointr/Surface

>... avoid any amazon chargers cause even if they say oem they’re all garbage, I’m sure those were the problem and try to get one from Microsoft.

​

I highly disagree with this statement. Microsoft OEM chargers are well-known to be overpriced and unreliable, with a high constant failure rate. Even the Surface rep at Best Buy said they change the demo adapters out every 3-4 months because they fail.

I have posted elsewhere, but the best combination I have found for the modern Surface units is to buy a high quality USB-C to Surface cable (i.e. J-Go-Tech), and pair it with a high quality, over-rated (meaning higher watt than needed) USB-C charger (I chose this 60w charger by Anker) . This combo has served me for a very, very long time and both were bought from Amazon (Ironically for slightly less than a new OEM adapter). This also means that should the charger fail or become damaged, you simply need another universal charger. If/When MS ditches the surface connector for USB-C, you're good to go there as well (and the dwindling supply of proprietary chargers won't be an issue for longevity as the cable, with proper care, will certainly outlast the charger!)

Also remember to keep your surface connector clean and the connection points free of any metal bits that may have attached themselves via magnetic attraction BEFORE powering on or plugging in. If your connector and Surface device tend to stay in one place this is less of an issue, but if they travel.. check first. The easiest way to blow out any charger is to short out the points.

u/retnuh730 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

> USB-C 2.0 charges faster than a standard 1.0. Simple enough right? This has 2.0, therefor charges faster as Nintendo stated per your article. It's not Quick Charge, but charges faster. Trust me, I get what your saying lol.

Not quite. USB-Power Delivery is a new standard that is not the same thing as USB as you likely know it. The name itself is pretty confusing. There is nothing about USB-C or USB Power Delivery on the anker charger you linked.

USB Power delivery devices use a USB-C port that outputs up to 20 volts. There is

Here's an example of a charger that supports Power Delivery and faster charging than a normal USB port. Notice that it is USB-C only and the output is listed as "2. Output: 5V 3A, 9V 2A, 15V 2A, 20V 1.5A;", and the phrase "power delivery" is prominently in the title.

There will be no charging performance differences between the $50 bank you linked and the $16 bank I linked because they both will only charge the switch at 5V 2A, which is barely enough to power the switch while it's on.

this great spreadsheet by the wonderful /u/waffledork shows that it will take something like 13 hours to fully charge your switch from 0 - 100% using the charger you linked if you are trying to play it while it charges.

So of course, Anker is safe bet, but getting the proper USB-PD ones tend to be a little expensive right now.

If you want to save money, I recommend this. It definitely charges right and it's also made of metal so it feels pretty sturdy.

I will say I had one problem though. After I used it for a while, the pins the connect the wall plug into the adapter itself actually pops out if I don't pull it out right, exposing the inside. It's super easy to pop back in but if it does it, I would just glue it back like I did so it doesn't happen again. I'm not saying this will happen to you but it did to mine.

I don't have that charger, but the first thing that I noticed was that the prongs were fixed. I carry my T480 in a rugged slipcase, and that would not fit well in the outer pocket. While there's nothing wrong with that charger and the few reviews it has are positive, you can get a better charger for a little bit more money.

I use RavPower's 45W USB C charger (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H9WMW6N/) with a Volta XL cable (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MCBH5GW/). The charger has a nice matte finish, not a glossy finish like it looks in the pictures. The Volta XL cables aren't perfect, but they're the best magnetic USB C PD cable's I've found.

If the size isn't a problem, RavPower also has a 61W charger that has a USB A port in addition to the USB C PD port: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PLR7T1M/. They also make a 45W cube charger if the you don't like the design of the above 45W unit (blocks outlets next to it): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TC53ZYD/

Note that you'll need a USB C PD cable since none of these chargers have a cable included. Anker's Powerline II USB C PD cable supports up to 60W PD: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071WNXY1R.

This is the one i got, purely because it had good reviews and was the biggest I could find:

LG G4 Battery Case, ZeroLemon LG G4 8500mAh TriCell Extended Battery + Soft TPU Full Edge Protection Case (Compatible with all LG G4 variants) (4897010519648) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01181ODJI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_7-Qwyb67383AC



There are however some other alternatives if you don't like the price or bulkiness of the zerolemon;


PowerBear LG G4 Extended Battery [6500mAh] & Back Cover & Protective Case (Up to 2.15X Extra Battery Power) - Black [24 Month Warranty & Screen Protector Included] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZMLOHBA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_BaRwyb00TWPHF

And another thing, it's not widely stated but the LG G4 supports quickcharge/fastcharge so it's totally worth every penny to scoop up a quickcharger if you don't have one. I like the company Anker as I've been using them for years.

Anker Quick Charge 3.0 39W Dual USB Wall Charger, PowerPort Speed 2 for Galaxy S7 / S6 / Edge / Plus, Note 5 / 4 and PowerIQ for iPhone 7 / 6s / Plus, iPad Pro / Air 2 / mini, LG, Nexus, HTC and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IUSYF8G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_LdRwyb94QRH6K




There are some other anker quickchargers as well if you only want 1 USB socket or if you want something like 8. And they vary from quickcharge 1.0 to 3.0 which is pretty much just different charge speeds.

u/Souloni · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've already purchased several USB-C cables and power bricks in anticipation for the Switch. Went Anker for their manufacturing quality, so it wasn't the cheapest, but the fact that it will be more common in the coming years made me feel less skittish about investing in it.

I hate the fact that my 3DS is so difficult to charge, and I just know that solving that issue will greatly improve my love for the consoles.

 


In case anyone is interested, I purchased this charger as it is 2.4 amps per port, which is close to what the Switch spec is. Essentially it is enough to charge the console in a timely fashion in a room away from the dock.
I purchased this cable since flexibility is more important when gaming plugged in versus the external protection that braiding provides.

u/sk9592 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Ok, so these would be my recommendations for that price range:

Amplifier ($64) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003OELGGG/

This is a very reasonable amp for the price. It is pretty good sound quality for this price range. It also has three RCA inputs in the back, and a 3.5 aux input in the front. This allows you to connect up to 4 different audio sources to it. It seems like you want to have several difference sources, so that's good.

This amp provides 120W per channel @ 4ohms. That means for a typical 8ohm bookshelf speaker, you're looking at 60W per channel. That means it can get really fucking loud.

Speakers ($65) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002RMPHMU/

These are actually excellent bookshelf speakers for the price and several times better sound quality than the ones you originally linked to. These come with speaker cable, so you don't need to buy that separately.

USB Charger ($11) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LCDJ7LG/

You wanted USB charging for an iPhone/iPad. This Anker charger is very high quality and provides 2.4 amps to each of its two USB ports. That means it will charge two iPads at full speed, and charge an iPhone significantly faster than the cube charger that it comes with.

Bluetooth Receiver ($23) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KXYXXK2/

Pretty self explanatory. It receives bluetooth audio from a phone/tablet/laptop and sends it to the amp. It can be connected to the amp through a 3.5mm to RCA cable. It is also NFC enabled so it can pair with Android phones super easily.

CD Player ($35) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007F9XHBI/

With was actually pretty tough. No one seems to sell stand alone CD players anymore. There is no market for them. You might as well plug in a portable CD player. The next best option is to plug in a DVD player through RCA audio cables (the red and white ones). It might seem silly, but it works just fine. You don't need to plug into a TV at all, since there are playback controls on the DVD player itself, and the small screen on it will tell you track info. Honestly, there is no point in buying a new one. If you have an old DVD/CD player laying around the house or can buy one on Craigslist for $10, go for it.

Record Player ($99) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008872SIO/

Recored playback seemed to be kinda optional for you, so this will take you over budget a little. However, I already mentioned, all-in-one systems with a record player built-in sound terrible and ruin your records. The record player I'm suggesting really is the cheapest decent one you can buy new. It's the one to get if you care about good sound quality and not ruining your records.

This nice thing about this set-up is that it's completely modular. Over the years, you can upgrade or replace individual components without trashing the whole thing.

Let me know if you have any questions about these components or anything else.

u/david57strat · 2 pointsr/flashlight

I use numerous chargers, daily, since I go crazy with multiple lights.

XTAR chargers seem to be among my favorites, although I have a pair of Nitecore D4 chargers, which seem to be relegated mostly for AA NiMh charging, these days.

I have four VC2 Plus chargers(although only two are pictured, here. The other two are on the other side of my computer monitor), running on an XTAR U1 USB Hub. They work very well; but I really prefer using my SV2, VC4, and Dragon chargers.

The VP2 chargers get used daily, as well, for my oversized 18650 batteries. They only seem to fit properly, in that charger. The VP2 was my very first XTAR charger purchase, and I have no regrets. They make every solid chargers.

My SV2s and Dragon chargers are my go to chargers for my 26650 batteries, because of the 2 Amp/Hr charge rate. Anything else feels like I"m watching the grass grow lol.

In the car, I carry a pair of MC1 Plus chargers, and they're powered by Anker 24w dual USB (2.1 Amp x 2) plug, which works very well. If I'm somewhere where I can get to an AC plug, I use one of their dual USB Wall Chargers (but in Black).

Another one of those wall chargers powers my pair of VC4 chargers, beautifully.

Best options I could find (in order of best quality to worst quality in my opinion):

Honestly, if I were you, I'd get either the Anker or the Monoprice, depending on your specific needs. I own the Anker and love it, but it's a bit large for traveling. I've had my eye on the Monoprice but it's been at $21 (which for a 45W charger is still cheap!). I only found the $17 price today thanks to compiling this response for you and actually ordered two for myself. It doubles as being quite sufficient for most laptops that charge via USB Type-C, which is awesome!

u/AttemptedWit · 3 pointsr/Android

Ah gotcha, but in the case like the Choetech where the charger only has one C port and no A ports, the QC branding should be a non issue?

Thanks for doing this! With USB-C being the future, your work, along with Bensons's, is extremely important for the future of the standard.

Edit: it appears choetech may have used old housings for this model which includes the QC stamp. I amy request an exchange to be safe.



I may contact amazon and Choetech anyway and request a refund just to be safe.

u/BasicUserAccount42 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I can't speak on how it will hold up in the long-term, or if it will degrade the battery life of my phone more quickly, but it charges at much higher throughput for its weight than for any of the 20ish chargers I tested, with the exception of the Moto TurboPower 30Watt, which charged my Motorola TurboPower Pack @ 28 Watts from 0% to about 30% before dropping down to 15Watts until 80%, and then trickle charged. I measured power usage using a "Kill A Watt" device and far too much time.

The Anker Devices I tested seemed to only deliver at around 6-8 Watts of charging throughput for my phone. Given that I'm using a Motorola, it uses a "TurboCharger" spec and doesn't use the QC3.0 spec, so I'm not sure if the Anker Devices avoided charging at higher power rating because they are true to QC3.0 communication protocol, or because of some other reason.

The other charger that I found to work quite well for the weight was this one. I can't find my notes, but think it was around 0.9 oz to 1.2 oz. Because I wanted my charger to charge both the battery and the phone simultaneously, and didn't want to rely on two outlets, I went for the Lyilin charger.

I'm super happy with my phone + charger setup right now (Moto Z Play w/ Moto TurboPower Pack), which loses around 10% per day in airplane mode with pretty frequent topographic map checking (turning the phone off at night fucks this up unless you decouple the battery). The Moto PowerPack effectively brings the battery capacity to 180%, and when simultaneously charging the PowerPack and the phone, I can get to 80% on the phone and 80% on the battery in about 30 minutes. So, I'm pretty sure I can get about 10-12 days of more-than just navigation phone use out of this setup while backpacking before charging, which can be done in less than the amount of time it takes me to resupply. This means I get a very solid kindle device or music device out of my phone if I so choose.

The other reason I settled on my phone + battery combo is that I wear pants, so I just drop my phone in my side pocket for easy access for navigation, photos, etc. As a worn item, I never need to feel the weight from an external battery.

First of all, let me thank you for your great support to Anker products. To your requirement, we would recommend below wall charger model for you, and you could use the blue QC port to recharge our PowerCore II 10000, and you will still have other 3 Power IQ port to charge your other devices:

u/randomee · 1 pointr/LGG3

The G3 is quite picky with wireless chargers or chargers in general for that matter.

I have 2 of the Panasonic QE-TM101 Charge Pads.
http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-QE-TM101-K-Black-Wireless-Charger/dp/B0051R4ECM

They have always worked well for all previous Qi enabled phones (Nexus 5, Note 2, etc.). However the G3 will always complain "slow charging" regardless of how I position it on the Charge Pad, with or without a case. See image here (not mine: https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7501/16237781855_1dde777699_z.jpg)

It does charge in time though, just annoyed by the message which also comes with some beeps. G3 Tweaksbox has an option to disable the Slow Charging message but that didn't work for me.

So I bought the WCD-100. And it works really well. It charges fast and without any errors. BUT only if I use the original travel charger that came with the G3, which seems to be rated at 5V 1.8A for its output. If I were to use even a more powerful charger like a Samsung 2A one that I am using now, it will still show the slow charging message sometimes. Very annoying. It does work still though.

TL;DR: Get the WCD100 and use it with the original travel charger that came with your G3 for the best experience.

u/Ewalk · 1 pointr/applehelp

I have one of these on my desk and it works for USB stuff pretty well. As far as USB C to Lightning cable, AFAIK the only actual certified Made for iPhone USB C to Lightning cable is the official Apple one.

I know that doesn't really help much, but Anker is a really trusted brand of mine so I wouldn't go wrong with them. Here's a decent one. It's expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

u/queuebitt · 3 pointsr/anker

The Atom PD 4 you linked is Anker's only dual USB-C desktop charger. It would of met your requirements, though was also overkill. It has had availability issues since release.

With your devices you're looking for a charger that supports:

  • iPhone 11 Pro Max: USB-C Power Delivery, 18W or more
  • iPad Pro 2018: USB-C Power Delivery, 30W or more
  • Samsung Note 9, Quick Charge 3.0 or USB-C Power Delivery, 18W or more

    If the Note 10 changes fasting specs it'll go more toward USB-C Power Delivery, possibly up to 25W with PPS. But that's speculation.

    Next closest Anker option is the PowerPort Speed 5 PD. Only one USB-C port, but will fast charge any of your devices. The USB-A ports support Apple 2.4A, an older fast charging tech the iPhone 11 should still support. It is a bit slower than USB-C PD or the included charger. But much faster than the old iPhone 5W charger. The Samsung will also charge via USB-A, but slower.

    Best non-Anker option is probably the Satechi 75W Dual Type-C Travel Charger. Two USB-C ports, either will fast charge iPhone and Samsung. Top one charges iPad Pro at max rate (bottom works in a lot of cases, too). And two regular USB-A ports.
u/Tbrooks · 2 pointsr/chromeos

I dont quite get your desire. Do you have the original charger and you are just looking for a smaller charger because the original one is too large? For me that is difficult to believe seeing as the original is 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" x 1 1/8" which is extremely compact for a laptop charger. the dart that was linked to you for $99 is smaller than that but only a small amount so.
Other laptop chargers like
highly rated on amazon
made by google
are both larger than the one that comes with the cb+/pro
the cbpro comes with a charger that tops out at 15volts at 2 amps so that is 30 watts. meaning the google charger is more expensive since it can charge a larger laptop. Also you can google 30 watt usb-c charger to find other chargers that should work with the cbpro.

If size is your only concern you can buy a high quality phone charger and it will trickle charge your laptop meaning it will only charge when it is off and it will charge at an extremely slow rate. It is tough to say which of the phone chargers to buy this article seems good. I use my pixel charger sometimes to trickle charge and it is a surperb quality charger. It should be noted though that it is only marginally smaller than the charger that comes with the cbpro

u/mdwyer · 5 pointsr/amazonecho

Maybe, but I would recommend the Anker anyway. I trust them not to burst into flames when placed under a continuous load. Anker does have a different model with the plug rotated 90 degrees that might fit your outlet better, but it is also more than twice the cost.

Also, a cheap, noisy power supply coupled with cheap speakers without filtering might end up yielding you a lot more noise.

u/meatwaddancin · 1 pointr/UsbCHardware

Hmmm, my understanding was that they can't do 5V 1A, but seem likes you know more about this than I do. I'm certainly not trying to argue at the technical level, and would love an explanation as to why it wouldn't charge (as well as the other 5W only devices I own).

​

All I can tell you is that the following chargers will not charge it:

Google 45W USB-C Power Adapter

Google Universal 22.5 W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger

Anker PowerPort Atom PD 1

Innergie 60C

RAVPower Wall Charger Adapter 45W Type-C

Inateck 60W Dual USB C Charger

Scosche PowerVolt Power Delivery

Anker PowerPort II (USB C didn't charge, USB A did charge)

​

I can list the various cables I tried too, but to keep it short I used 2.0, 3.1 Gen 2, and Thunderbolt 3 cables from Google, Anker, ReTrak, and j5create.

u/Rashkh · 3 pointsr/Surface

Per this post you should be able to hit the minimum spec but I expect that it's going to give you a very slow charge. What you'd ideally want is a power deliver (PD) capable charger with a high wattage. As an example, I use this one and it works great.

Edit: Actually, the charger you linked might work. I didn't notice the 40W max output but that should be enough. Not sure if it's got a PD port though.

u/Midniteoyl · 1 pointr/ATT

This charger, with this cable. You can get the single port version, but for the price at the time ($18) I bought the double. The cables are awesome for the price though.

I can run both wifi's and Ethernet w/o the battery perfectly stable. No reboots for the last 6-7 weeks since.

u/Thank_Mimes · 6 pointsr/iPhoneXS

Apple USB C to Lightning cable plus a USB C power delivery charger like this one. Fast as safely possible.

Edit: and yes we agree that Apple should be providing something like this out of the box. Not a shitty white brick that trickles.

u/SCVGoodT0GoSir · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

It looks like OP already has an A to C cable, so it looks like they just need a charging brick. In which case, assuming their Anker cable is compliant with the 56 ohm resistor standard (which it should be, as Anker makes quality stuff), /u/bilge6 you can actually use any charging brick to charge your phone, though if you want fast charging speeds you'd probably want a 2A ~ 2.4A brick. Your Anker cable already guarantees safety for your phone with the correct resistance. If you're looking to order one from Amazon, you can't go wrong with getting one from Anker.

I should note that any charger ~1.8A or higher will charge your phone fairly fast (1.5 to 2 hours from 0% to 100%) so if you're looking to save money and have a charging brick at home, you can just use that.

u/lilwang275x1 · 2 pointsr/chromeos

I'm pretty happy with this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DFGKFM3/ and picked up this cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071WNXY1R/ to go with it. Fast charges my Samsung Chromebook Plus (v2) and also my Note 8. If your CB is 30 watt or below, it should do a fine job. It's pretty small, doesn't take much room in a bag even though the prongs don't fold. I would guess that any PD charger that supplies at least what your old one did will work fine as well.

u/joshuadwx · 2 pointsr/anker

For your case, PowerPort Atom PD 2 is the best choice because both the Switch and iPhone use Power Delivery and wouldn’t benefit at all from Qualcomm Quick Charge.

Check to see if it can run on 45W. There’s a good chance it can unless it’s running at a very high load. Some of the reviews will monitor power usage, and if it’s okay with 45W you can some smaller options.

u/justamomento · 9 pointsr/savedyouaclick

That's not the point.

The point is that both last years and the new gen of iphones support fast charging. You need a different lighting cable as well as base mount in order to do it (the normal iphone charger is a 5watt charger, fast-charging is using something like this 42 watt charger)

So yes you can totally still use all your old iphone and ipad charging stations and cables. The problem is you're not going to be able to take advantage of the much faster charging speeds.

Think of it like filling a tank with water. The current iphones all fill up with a pipe that's 1 inch around. It takes a while but it gets the job done. The two latest generation have a opening that is 5 inches around so if you are using a bigger pipe, you can fill it up much much faster. You can of course still use the old 1 inch tubes but it's not taking advantage of the fact that your new one can accept a much faster stream of water to fill it up.

Does that help?

u/jmcg0192 · 2 pointsr/ipad

Get two of these. You would need a usbc to lightning cable to use the mini, but not with the pro. Also these are 30w so they’ll charge both devices fast. Bonus if you have iPhone 8’s or newer, as those could benefit from the fast charging as well.

u/slikk66 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Yes it charges, and it works. I've used it more and it does decrease while playing. That being said, I can still get a couple of hours out of it easy, but depending on the game it can drain faster with some games over others. I've seen that they now have another charger that is about $1-2 more and claims to have the PD charging feature and is 18 (instead of 15 of the charger linked in OP). I haven't tested it, but was planning to get one soon. I imagine this charger may do a bit better job keeping up with the drain rate: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071SHKFRB/

EDIT: actually it seems unavailable now, so idk.. but the original linked charger at top works pretty well, I've yet to have the switch die on me while using it docked.

-Connect wired keyboard-mouse to the TB3 box

u/Surfac3 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Incorrect. A standard USB c phone charger without power delivery means the switch will pull just under 5v and almost 2amps for just under 10 watts of power and since it draws 8.9 or so max (more if the joy cons are discharged) your looking at either maintaining charge or losing charge 90% of the time and if it does charge while being used it will be incredibly slow. It's fine for charging in cleep mode but other then that useless.

A USB c PD charger is a must such as the pixel XL one or something like this.

UGREEN USB Type C Wall Charger 30W with Power Delivery for Nintendo Switch, Macbook, Google Chromebook Pixel, Nexus 5X 6P, LG G5, HTC 10, New Nokia N1(Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GFE90H8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_s6q7yb482JTWD

The think you have to look for is that it's a PD (power delivery) charger and that it supports multiple voltages and amperages.

As of now that's probably your best bet for an on the go charger as far as a dock replacement nothing is confirmed working as of yet with the dock other then the official charger.

I am completely confused by AC Chargers. I have looked at the spreadsheet (not updated since 2015) that has links to Benson's reviews, I've checked this site: https://usbccompliant.com/ , and I've read a bunch of reviews on Benson's Google+ page, but I still don't get it. Seems like 99% of reviews are for USB C to USB A cables which I have no use for, and it is impossible to dig through them to find the less than handful of charger reviews.

I want a USB C charger capable of rapid charging that is not going to destroy my phone, but everything I read seems to have conflicting information. First someone says as long as it is USB C it is fine, then no, it's not fine because it has Quickcharge over USB C which is not spec compliant, people say it 'charges rapidly' then someone else says it doesn't... I see something through links/reviews on Amazon.com that is apparently a suitable alternative to the Google charger, but then big surprise, it's not available on Amazon.ca

I didn't want to pay so much for the Google chargers, but at this point I may as well have...

So what is going on, are either of these spec compliant, rapid charge capable over USB C, and not going to destroy my phone?

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B019FCIOI8/ :edit: nevermind, this one is apparently NOT good because it has QC over USB C

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B017I7EX46

I would have thought AC chargers would be something that people were commonly looking for, why is this info so hard to find?

Thanks

don't get the one off Amazon sold by samsung! There's mixed reviews and it didn't work for me. So I bought this one after a friend recommended for me and it works great

Like someone else said, my s6 came with one too. I lost it so I had to get another one.

u/Friarchuck · 1 pointr/iphone

I have an iPhone XS regular size.

To charge I have an Anker wireless charging mat that sits on my bedside table. Its connected to an Anker 39 watt brick with 2 usb slots. My watch charger is plugged into the other slot. I'm not sure if the charging mat is capable of fast charging, but it doesn't really matter because I put my phone on the mat at night and when I leave to workout (s3 cellular watch, thing is awesome) so I never really get to a point where I'm hurting for battery.

In the car I use this Kenu wireless charger. I kinda splurged a bit on the car one, but whatever. In the past I would have it sit on my leg and it would sometimes fall off and generally be a pain in the ass, so the fact that it holds it up is great. Benefit of upgrading from a touchid phone to a face id phone with this kind of setup is that you just have to tap the screen and it wakes up and a glance unlocks for any notifications.

I'm doing my best to embrace this wireless future. If I gotta spend a little extra to get there, that's cool with me.

Expensive and instructions are in Japanese, but it is the best charger I've used. You can place your phone anywhere on the matt and in any orientation and it will find the "sweet spot" and charge. It is the first truly drop and go wireless charger I've used!

Also charges through my ringke fusion case.

I had the Choe Stadium and even with its 3 coils I still had to fiddle with the phone placement to find the "sweet spot". It also died on me after a week and a half.

I've seen a lot of good things about that one. I realized I messed up one of the links in the original post where i meant to link to this. In the interest of not having to return it and shell out an extra $30, would you say it's safe to keep using?

u/GuardianZX9 · 1 pointr/Surface

The cable itself is cheap it can be found on Amazon for about $15. the most important part is your USB C PD device has to do 15 volts.

I just bought this cable a few days ago

you don't have to use that one but as long as it supports the 15 volt PD profile you are good

u/Grim-Sleeper · 1 pointr/chromeos

I am a big fan of this Anker's USB-C power supply. Works fine for all my legacy devices and also for my cell phone and Pixelbook.

And the best part is, while it comes with a power cord, you can install an adapter to turn it into a wall charger. I haven't tried yet, but I imagine this also works with European plugs.

I installed an extra long 10ft USB charging cable. That's the beauty of having a device that you can plug arbitrary cables into, rather than being limited by the power supply that came with your device.

u/readingXP · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I'm pretty sure the dual port charger you linked does NOT support USB-PD, so it isn't a good match for the Pixel/XL anyway.

This charger is 60W instead of 45W and is cheaper. Belkin products are usually marked up a bit too much for my liking. You will have to buy a separate cable for this charger though (Anker also makes some really nice ones)

I strongly recommend 30w Aukey usb-c charger as a travel companion. It is true that it is slightly underpowered (compared to 45w) but it is ridiculously compact(size of a lighter) and lightweight(50g).

https://www.amazon.com/AUKEY-Delivery-Ultra-Slim-Compatible-More-Black/dp/B07LBG1C3Q/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?keywords=aukey+usb-c+charger&qid=1558882956&s=gateway&sprefix=aukey+usb-c+cha&sr=8-9

It is rated 30w max but you gonna get 27w as XPS supports 9V x 3A and not 15v x 2A.

Seems like Anker has a model even more compact, but I haven't tested its compatibility with xps13

The OEM charger is 45watts. It will charge on anything less than that but just not as quickly. Right now its charging on 10watts (cell charger).

I was looking into this charger but its pretty pricey and I would have to get a USB C to USB C cable as well.

u/ppParadoxx · 1 pointr/iphone
  1. Anker tends to be a really good brand with great CS. My current wireless stand charger is from RavPower and I’ve been happy with it so far. You’ll get little differences in different brands/models as far as color, size, status light, etc. so a little research goes a long way toward making sure you get your preferences down. Back when I had my iPhone 8 Plus, I got a fast charger from Ugreen and a 2m USB to Lightning cable and it worked very well. You also get a fast charger and cable included in the box.

  2. I’m not super familiar with Android data transfer, but there will be an option when you’re setting up your phone to transfer your data from an android. This article might help.

From what I've seen, Benson doesn't test chargers itself, so I think only cables are risky (it has 4,5 stars on amazon too, here is link if you want to read reviews )

The n7 is larger but because the charging node moves to the right location automatically, I was able to place the N7 on just fine and charge it. The best part is the moving node. No worry about syncing it up properly. Plus, it looks bad ass.

u/Kurookitox · 1 pointr/galaxys10

I'd recommend either the Anker or Aukey wireless charger. I've used both and they're great. You have to buy the AC adapter separately for each one though in order to enable fast charging.

u/charlespax · 1 pointr/onebag

My current laptop is the Huawei Matebook X. I use and Aukey power adapter (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074C2VZ2T) and battery pack (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07JK63TSJ). The battery pack can actually charge the laptop. The power adapter can charge both the laptop and battery pack. I have one long usb-c to usb-c cable and one short one (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DNSYH7R) that each do USB 3.1 speeds. It's great having a usb-c setup like this. Super light and lots of charging options.

u/wag3slav3 · 2 pointsr/Nexus5

To me it was worth the extra money for the magnets in the OEM charger, works great for my Nexus 5 and 7. Getting the coil lined up was a bit of a pain on the cheap ones. Plus the magnets are strong enough you can superglue the stock one to a post and use it as a car dock for the 5!

There is also another one that a little more expensive that moves the coil to the perfect place for best charging.

I'd say try out the cheap ones, they'll charge fine, but if you get tired of picking up the phone in the middle of the night or want a car dock take another look at the OEM dock or the QE-TM101. It might be worth your money for a location or two in your day.


u/zb_xy · 2 pointsr/iphone

Absolutely. Anker make's a good one for $10. Your case needs to be less than 5mm thick and can't be metal. Also, no pop-socket or things like that. You can't use the normal Apple charging brick though, it needs to be one like this (offbrand, 3-pack) or this (Anker brand, single).

u/loafloafers · 1 pointr/Ultralight

Thanks for contacting them.

I feel like it's worth noting, to get the quick charge input, you do need to use their QC input adapter. Assuming one would want a two port charger, Amazon has the QC 3.0 two port listed at 4.6 oz.

The older 10k (6.2oz) will charge a bit faster, in my experience, with my 2.4ax2 port (3oz) at around 6 hours. That is about the same listed on the newer 10k's amazon page of 5hr 40m with a 2a charger.

Assuming that the 4.6oz is accurate, there is a 2.6oz difference total for a savings of 2 hours if the 4hr charge time holds true as well. Still significant time savings but at a price.

As you can tell, I like to have plenty of chargers around, and most of them are connected to the wireless fast charge pads. The only problems I ever had were cable related and how I found out that not all cables are built the same to handle the fast charge.

u/scoii · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have the one listed on Amazon with "Upgraded" in the title, and can confirm it works with Switch. I use an Anker Powerline+ USB C cable to connect the Switch to it. I have only had a concern with it one time. I charged my smartphone (LG G3) in the other port at the same time as the Switch, and when the phone was fully charged, the green light started blinking on and off on the charger. Green symbolizes quick charge. If it was blinking on and off, that tells me it got confused when the phone finished charging on whether quick charge should be active, and I have no idea if the energy it was providing was surging as the light blinked. I did not notice any issue with either device, but keep that in mind. Some comments on the charger indicated similar experiences, but the "upgraded" model per Anker was supposed to address that. When the Switch is charging by itself, I have not experienced any issues, and it charges fast enough to continue playing.

As a sidenote, I also have a Holsem power strip with USB ports on it. I have charged my Switch directly in it again using my Anker Powerline+ cable, and it also provides enough charge to continue playing, even when the Switch is low on power. Other brands may provide the same experience, but if you sit at a desk or near an entertainment stand when you play, you could plug directly into your power strip as well.

u/JewishDan18 · 2 pointsr/onebag

I mean, just for a 60w charger Ravpower has one 30 percent lighter and the classic choice is the Innergie, which is nearly half the weight of your pick.

Instead of the 100g dual port charger, there are a few directions one could go. Two of these saves 20 percent of the weight while giving you two 18w PD ports. If you don't need two 18w ports, you can sub in one of these to save another 10 percent. If you don't really need power delivery (which you really might not, most non-laptops don't pull more than 12w unless the battery is very low) you can just take one of these and save half your weight. Hell, if you really want to make the most of 100g, I'd just take two of these and know that any tablet or phone I have will charge extremely fast and have a backup for my main charger in case of failure.

Both Ravpower and Aukey have longer warranties than Anker, and I've had great experiences dealing with both of them. I don't really think Anker is competitive at all in the lightweight charger landscape.

One question: did you consider charging your devices off your laptop while it's charging?

u/jcpb · 3 pointsr/UsbCHardware

I wish I have an answer to this, because even Anker has problems at the 60W+ front. The most helpful review is a 1-star and it said that charger fried the USB-C port on the user's MBP - YIKES. Google's wall chargers only go up to 45W.

For your in-ears: Innergie's MagiCable will adapt any USB-C cable to micro-USB, negating the need to buy a separate USB-C to micro-USB legacy cable. It's technically a device itself though, so the USB-C charger/power bank will become active and start supplying power. It's also limited to about 5V 2A.

For the wall chargers: if Lenovo does anything funny with their laptops, any wall chargers you have will need 60W minimum or they simply won't charge. Apple's MBP will pretty much charge off any USB-C though, just more slowly, and the laptop has to be asleep (lid closed) or off.

Nekteck 65W
Nekteck 60W
RAVPower 60W w/ GaN

Innergie 60C if price is no object

I wouldn't recommend any Apple stock chargers unless it updates their 61W and 87W to do the full USB PD voltage ranges - even if it does, price is a problem on both.

For power banks: ideally they should have two 60W capable USB-C ports, one of them being input+output; and 1-2 USB-A ports for everything else. That's pretty hard to find and they certainly won't come cheap. If you limit that to one USB-C, that might be a bit easier to find.

u/patch_one_four_more · 1 pointr/essentialphone

The Essential phone is very, very picky about cables and chargers. The cable they included in the box is a very low quality cable and should be replaced for purposes besides charging. If you bought during an eBay special, you may have an unusually low quality charger.

For optimal (fast) charging, you want a high quality USB-PD rated USB wall (or car) charger supporting USB-C to USB-C charging.

Something like this, this, or this along with a USB type C to type C cable.

Once I switched to doing it this way, my phone started to charge rapidly every time.

u/mcsleepy · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

They work fine. The fit is very snug so nothing's going to be falling out. Of course what really matters is the cable itself and what's at the end of it - the Switch needs wall warts that meet certain specs, otherwise it might charge slowly. (For example https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M8MFCYQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

The pro controller should probably always be charged by the Switch dock for safety ... in that case any micro or C USB cable should work

Can someone tell me the difference between these 3 10,000mAh Anker external batteries? One
Two
Three

I don't know the difference between Quick Charge 3.0;PowerIQ, PowerIQ, and PowerIQ II.

This is the wall charger I have. Which one of those external batteries will work best with my wall charger??

u/MrMeowGusta · 1 pointr/lgg4

I currently use this one and it works pretty good.

u/crispy00001 · 1 pointr/tablets

Weird, will try this because i mostly use it for a pretty power intensive game. I just bought this charger and waiting for it to arrive http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OVD3FEU?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A3IAN4VN1Q26HU. Seems like some say it supports quick charge 2.0 some say it doesn't. I need a dedicated charger anyway so hopefully it works out

u/3x1t0r · 1 pointr/MotoG

Happen to me also.

OEM TurboCharger never worked, always read "Charging slowly"

I bought this aftermarket charger on Amazon and works like a charm: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00OVD3FEU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_Fm9ZAbDAYMAK5

u/TCL987 · 2 pointsr/Vive

I bought this one, it works great, it can even run the wireless adapter/HMD directly if you're doing something seated that doesn't need to turn (like watching a movie or playing Elite Dangerous).

u/LIGHTNINGBOLT23 · -1 pointsr/gaming

Buy this for $27.

And buy this adapter for $17.

Then add a few bucks of shipping. Congratulations, that's around the price of $50, with a whole $40 to spare! Don't spend ALL that $40 on a plastic mold and overpriced Monster branded HDMI cables though!

I would suggest something like this https://www.amazon.com/Charger-Anker-PowerPort-Delivery-MacBook/dp/B07H54MKQY/ref=dp_ob_title_wld unless you want a bit more power from the usb-c port in order to future proof to be able to charge a laptop, etc. In that case, a good option has been this model. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DW65CCL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Motorola support have no idea when they will be ready. They need to undergo more certification for Australia apparently.
Funnily enough the turbo charger is on the play store for Aussies but not available yet.
I bought one from Amazon and a car one from aliexpress.

There's also this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TC53ZYD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which seems tiny enough, and should supply 61W which is enough juice for the X1C.

Haven't tried it but I think Ravpower are usually pretty decent in terms of quality/price (and it costs half as much as the Innergie adapter).

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS9

thats the input current to the charger. Check the output amps. It probably at least 2A. So 10W probably.


If you want a fast charger just for the phone get a quick charge 3.0 brick like this one. This will fast charge.

But if you plan to use it among multiple devices like a phone, laptop, nintendo switch, tablet etc then go ahead and buy the one you originally wanted

u/Mahooki · 2 pointsr/Dell

Thunderbolt 3 ports support up to 100W of power delivery. A cursory look at your laptop looks like the OEM power adapter supplies 130W. You should be able to charge it in a pinch with a TB3 port, but it won't be charging at full speed. You'll need a wall adapter - preferably one with as close to 100W power delivery over usb-c as you can find. I use this, however it only supplies ~60W - so you would be charging less than half as quickly as with the OEM power adapter.

Edit: At that point, you may as well buy a replacement of the power brick. It looks to be this one but you should double check.

u/yoshibori · 1 pointr/onebag

This one is amazing. I have had it for about a week and traveled with it for the last five days. I use it with an iPad Pro 11, 13 MBP pro, s10+ and all my other random devices. It works flawlessly.

You have to decide what is more cost/time efficient for you between buying a new charger like one of the above or exchanging your c302.

u/tsdguy · 3 pointsr/iphone

Personally I've found the Anker 2 port 24W charge works very nicely as a pretty quick charger. Only $13 and uses regular USB A cables.

It charges my iPhone 7 Plus from 20% to 100% in about 2 hours.

u/legion02 · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

This one, by all accounts, is supposed to be good. Cheaper than the Google chargers and legitimately capable of 3A charging.

u/GlobeTrott3r · 1 pointr/iPhoneXsMax

Good to hear you're not affected. My max arrives on the 4th so I'm not sure if it has the charge issue.

Got the OEM Apple USB-C cable and the $50 Anker 60w USB-C on the ready. Thinking about the OEM charger. After dropping $1,450, what's another $60?

u/bigceej · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

Choetech makes excellent products! There cables and chargers are very high quality and affordable. If you want just 1 USB C port there is this

Or if you want a USB C and 2 USB A get this . Not usre why this is on pre-order again, maybe they just sold all there stock. But I preordered it the first time, they screwed up and accidentally sent everyone 2 USB cables they said I could keep them and they would still send me the charger. The charger is great, and the only one out there that meets USB C spec and has Usb A.

first one is 7 dollars currently

This one is slightly more at 11 dollars but has 2 usb ports so you can charge your phone or tablet at the same time as powering your mini nes.

This one is $29 and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, probably not worth the extra money unless you frequently plan on charging your phone or tablet using it, and said device is among the list of devices using Qualcomm Quick Charge.

You can only charge via USB so fast unless your device supports one of the technologies that negotiates faster charging. If your battery doesn't have that, then it can only charge so fast.

I just got the new Anker Atom PD 2 along with two Anker USB C to lightning cables. I wanted to get something with two USB C ports so I could charge my iPhone 7 and iPad Pro 10.5" at the same time

u/webstalker61 · 4 pointsr/MatebookXPro

I'd recommend getting a charger from a well known brand. Anker is regarded as one of the best when it comes to aftermarket chargers.
They sell a few 60W chargers (stock is 65W, but the Anker 60W charger I use is practically the same charging time).
I'm not sure if these are sold by Amazon MX, might need to purchase from eBay, etc:

Eh, Anker has a 7.5W wireless charger for under $17 right now. You need a QC-compatible wall charger to go with it, but Anker also has one of those for $13.99. The total cost for the whole setup is a bit over $30. That's pretty cheap by my standards...

u/thecatstrikesback · 1 pointr/motorola

Any USB C cord will work on Amazon, but if you want to feel the most secure and the fastest charging the Motorola turbo USB C is the way to go: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M8MFCYQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_pVwPzbZVWG7CZ

u/firechaos05 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

To keep it brief; Nintendo Switch draws about 8.9W at most while gaming in portable mode. Also, the Switch can only draw up to 2A due to its design.

A USB-A adapter (along with a USB-A to USB-C cable) supplies up to 5V 1.5A (7.5W) which is insufficient to charge while playing intensive games. The cable you linked is a USB-A to C, so presumably you were using a USB-A adapter which only supplies 7.5W. The Switch can draw more than this while in portable mode, which explains why your battery was still being depleted.

A USB-C adapter (along with USB-C to USB-C cable) supplies up to 5V 2A (10W) which is enough to slowly charge while gaming. (1) (2)

A USB-C adapter that supports USB-PD can supply up to 18W (voltage and current can vary) which can quickly charge the Switch while gaming. (1) (2)

Turn off background app refresh for everything but what you need, if you are doing heavy stuff like gaming get more chargers for different locations in your house where you might setup or buy a USB-C portable battery pack.

I love this (Japanese) one from Panasonic:

It's a large-ish pad that senses where your phone is and internally moves its charging coil to wherever your phone is. You NEVER have to orient it, it does the orienting for you.

u/tldnradhd · 1 pointr/ASUS

There are a lot of Amazon reviews regarding reliability concerns with the UX430UA. Unfortunately, there isn't as much information on the Q325UA because it's a Best Buy-only model. The Q325 is on sale this week. I was considering an HP Spectre x360 with similar specs, but this will be $300 less, so I'm probably going for the Asus. I'm using it for travel, so the 2-in-1 design is a plus along with the USB-C charging that means I can get something like this to charge multiple phones, batteries, and the laptop.

Edit: If all-day-power is a concern, there are portable batteries for USB-C power delivery. The 430 uses a traditional power brick, so no portables.

Has anyone been able to get this adaptor (or the cable) to charge at greater than 30W with the surface pro 6 i5? I've been testing the adaptor with a Satechi usbc multimeter, and it never draws more than [email protected], while the official power brick that comes with the the system draws roughly 36W (rated at 44W).

I'm using a Anker 60W charger with USB-C PD support (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BQJWDRM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1), according to the specs on the bottom of the charger, it supports [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected], I was hoping to get [email protected] out of it. Or do I need a brick that supports [email protected]

Not complaining too much though, it does charge the device no problem, but is much slower when the device is under any heavy load.

Works well and does rapid charging. Nexus 6p displays that it is rapidly charging when plugged in. Hope this helps.

u/jzorbino · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You're not going to find anything nearly as good as the official charger for the price. You can maybe find a USB C charger for $20-$25 that may or may not be strong enough to charge the Switch while playing.

As you say, you don't want to fry your Switch for using the wrong item, but you are risking doing so to save literally $5. Spend the $30, you won't regret it.


Also, I'm pretty sure the charger you linked won't work very well as you need one that is USB C to USB C. That one is USB A to USB C. It will charge, but will take forever and still lose battery if you try to play while plugged in. Here is an example of a C to C charger, and it is on sale for $23, but by the time you buy a C to C cord it will be about the same price:
