Charging all your Android and other gadgets has become decidedly less complicated over the years with the rise of USB Type C and USB Power Delivery. Deciding which charger to buy, though, can be a bit of a headache: there are endless brands, supported outputs, and form factors to consider. We've put together a list of the chargers we think combine the best of all worlds: good output, compact form factors, reputable brands, and strong value. Here are our picks.
More specs for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note10 have leaked. According to well-known leaker Ice universe, the Note10 will support charging at up to 25W, and the larger Note10+ will support up to 45W — though it will only come with a 25W charger in the box. WinFuture further believes that the Note10 will be using a Snapdragon 855 in the US, and not the upcoming Snapdragon 855 Plus.
There are a ton of cheap batteries out there to choose from, so when we do reviews for them here at Android Police, we tend to be pretty picky. USB-C is a must-have from our mobile-first perspective, and anything less than 30W of output is a bit of a snooze. Thankfully, 45W seems to be the new high-end standard going into 2019, and RAVPower's new 20,100mAh battery ostensibly delivers that now-essential level of power for a mere $60. That's $140 less than what Mophie is charging for its similarly-spec'd 26,000mah battery, and Android Police readers can even get an extra $9 off via our exclusive coupon.
Beside being known for making affordable but good smartphones, Xiaomi has a large ecosystem of accessories and smart home products that stretch the value-for-money equation to its limit. Its latest addition is something quite universal: a power bank. But true to its name, Xiaomi's new Mi Power Bank 3 offers a lot for a very accessible, nearly unseen price.
Those of you who read our accessories guide that went up yesterday will have seen this battery, Jackery's Supercharge 26800 PD, included as a more premium option. At $119.99 with an included 45W wall charger, we already thought that was a pretty good deal. However, Jackery is offering Android Police readers an exclusive 25% discount code on Amazon, bringing the price down to a downright amazing $89.99.
