Which output (W) should I use for my phone?

Which output (W) should I use for Nintendo Switch, tablets, and laptops?

Start with the output level (W) for your largest device. Higher output chargers will safely support lower-demand devices.


18-20W USB-C Chargers

Great for: iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Android, and iPad Pro (Lightning)

There is only a 1-minute difference in charge time between an 18W and 20W charger for the iPhone 12. If buying for the first time 20W chargers are newer, 18W may be cheaper. If you already have an 18W then a 20W upgrade does almost nothing for you.

Recommendation: AmazonBasics 36W Two-Port offers the best value for fast charging two iPhones or Samsung Galaxies together. If you have one phone supporting Quick Charge then consider the Anker PowerPort III Duo instead.


25W USB-C PPS Charger

Great for: Samsung Galaxy S20 and newer phones

These chargers support 25W PPS, a lower heat and stress fast charging mode supporting by newer Samsung devices among others. They are considered optimal and help prolong battery life, but an 18-20W charger can get the same job done. Apple devices do not support PPS, so while these chargers would work with an iPhone there is no special benefit to using them.

Recommendation: I would skip to the next section (60-65W) and check out the ZMI zPower Turbo 65W. A great, smallish charger with USB-C cable included. Cheaper than anything above while offering more power output (so it’ll work with more future devices longer).

Recommendation: The Nekteck 63W 2-Port, hands down. It beats everything else in offering fast charging for your phone while also keeping up with a mid-sized laptop and costing you less.


60-65W USB-C Chargers

Great for: MacBook Pro 13-inch, most 13 and 14-inch PC laptops

A USB-C to USB-C cable which supports 100W (5A) power is required to get the full 65W on supporting chargers. Otherwise, they act like a 60W charger. In most cases, the extra 5W makes little to no difference.

Recommendation: The ZMI zPower Turbo 65W wins on value alone, offering the best price and with a 100W rated USB-C cable. For the smallest and lightest option go with the Anker Nano II 65W, but you’ll pay for the smaller form factor.

Recommendation: Treat these as 45W USB-C chargers for your larger device, as none of them can offer 60W to a laptop while a second device is also connected. That is still enough to keep your mid-sized laptop running under most conditions.


90-100W USB-C Charger

Great for: MacBook Pro 15-inch, MacBook Pro 16-inch, most 15 to 17-inch PC laptops

100W is the highest output a USB-C Power Delivery charger can go under current specifications. A USB-C to USB-C cable which supports 100W (5A) power is required.

Recommendation: Nekteck 100W USB-C PD easily wins on value if you need a second charger for your large laptop. Check out desktop USB-C chargers if you’re wanting better multi-port options with high output.


Desktop USB-C Charger

Great for: Charging several devices at your desk or another fixed point

Desktop chargers are often larger and heavier than wall chargers and require a separate cable to connect to a wall outlet. In exchange they often offer more total output potential, fast charging more devices at once.
