Best chargers for iPad Pro (2021)
There's more than one way to charge an iPad, and now with the Thunderbolt port in the 2021 iPad Pro, you have even more powerful options. Whether you're looking for a top-notch adapter or an extra-long power cable, we have ferreted out all the charging accessories you need. Here are the best chargers for the 2021 iPad Pro.
Super-charge with multiple ports
Working safely with a full 90W of juice, this RAVPower adapter is one of the most powerful you'll find for the iPad Pro. It'll have your tablet charged to capacity in less than two hours, and it's surprisingly small for the amount of power it holds. Even better, the adapter has two USB-C ports, so you can charge multiple devices at once.
If all you need is an extra standard adapter, Apple offers the original charging adapter that comes with all iPad Pro models. This one is not as fast at 20W, but it will work fine if you just want an extra charger for the home or office.
The original extra power
For a little more kick, Apple's 30W charger (the one that comes with most MacBooks) will charge your iPad Pro even faster than the 20W adapter. It's larger than the standard adapter but comes with more power.
Although a Thunderbolt cable is often used to connect devices or transfer data, it can also be used to efficiently charge your iPad Pro with any USB-C adapter. This one is 2 meters long, so you can continue to use the iPad while it charges. That way, you have a cable that works to charge and transfer data at the fastest rate possible.
Similar in size and shape to the Apple 30W adapter, the Anker 65W charger offers more power at a lower price point. It will charge slightly faster than the 30W adapter, and Anker's PowerIQ technology protects devices from over-charging and power surges.
Best Power Bank
When there are no power outlets available, a good power bank is priceless. The RAVPower Power Bank packs a 20000mAh internal battery that can charge your iPad Pro from zero to full 1.5 times without recharging.
Shoppers on a budget may not want to shell out for an original Apple adapter. If that's the case, then the Anker Nano Charger will be just the thing. It's small, compact, and easy to pack into a small bag or purse.
If you love a good package deal, this is the charger pack for you. It comes with a 65W charging adapter, a 25,600mAh power bank, and a USB-C power cord. Everything you need to keep your iPad Pro charged, with or without an outlet nearby.
