Best Power Banks for Huawei

A portable charger (aka power bank) can mean the difference between stressing over your Huawei’s battery life. Or being able to use it all day long without worry. The best portable chargers for Huawei P and Mate phones can all fast charge them from 0-50% in 30 minutes. Or even faster if they support SuperCharge. While also offering enough capacity to keep you going, whether for busy work day or long trip.

Huawei SuperCharge 40W 12000

Fast Charging Huawei P40, P30, P20, Mate X, Mate 20, Mate 10

Huawei phones use two unique fast charging standards: SuperCharge and FCP.

Charging Speeds for Huawei Phones

Charging Speeds for Huawei Phones

SuperCharge increases both the voltage and the current going into the phone. Most other standards only increase the voltage. This allows Huawei to recharge their phones 20-40W. Much faster than the 18W we see on other standards. The downside is a lot of heat. So the power conversion circuits have to be in the charger. This keeps the phone from support other fast charging standards.

Different model Huawei phones have different SuperCharge wattage limits. The flagship phones (P series Pro) go up to 40W. The rest are around 20W.

FCP was Huawei’s first fast charging standard for their early USB-C phones. It only offers up to 18W, like USB PD and Quick Charge. But newer Huawei phones continue to support this standard. And it is available from third party chargers.

All the non-Huawei chargers listed below will be supporting FCP.

Learn more about SuperCharge, FCP, and other fast charging standards.

USB-C to USB-C Cable

An FCP charger uses a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect to your phone. You can use the cable Huawei included. But for a second charger you likely want a second cable for convenience.

If buying a SuperCharge charger you will need a USB-C cable which supports 5A (100W). As such chargers tend to use USB-A to USB-C connections you’ll want to stick with official Huawei cables.

Find a good selection of USB-C cables here.

  • For a non-Huawei charger stick with USB-C to USB-C cables with 60W and USB 2.0 support.
  • For a Huawei SuperCharge use their cable.
