Best iPhone chargers

One of the best iPhone chargers is a necessity any time your iPhone needs more juice. With iPhones no longer coming with chargers in the box anymore, you'll need to grab one separately so it's even more important you find the right one.

That's where we're here to help. We've got loads of guides about the best chargers for your iPhone, so we've collated some of our favorites below in an easy to follow list. The guide includes MagSafe options, wall chargers, travel devices, and plenty of others for every scenario. 

Before you dive in, remember that MagSafe only came in with the iPhone 12 so if your iPhone is older than that, you can't use it. Some of these chargers will require USB-C cables, so if you have an older iPhone and are still using your old cable, then you might need to upgrade that too. With that over, let's get started with the best iPhone chargers.

If you have many Apple devices, one of the best wireless chargers for multiple devices could be a better alternative.

What does fast charging mean?

Fast charging lives up to its name. It gets your phone back up to 100% more quickly than a regular charger. It ups the current that goes into your iPhone, so the more amperage is put back into the battery. That can create extra heat so don't be surprised if your phone gets warmer. It's well-tested though so there's nothing to worry about.

Is wireless charging fast for iPhone?

Wireless charging is always slightly slower than normal wired charging, depending on the cables and plugs involved. However, it's been brought up to speed in newer iterations with MagSafe making the process even quicker. It's almost as fast as the best cable setups.

What is MagSafe?

MagSafe is the Apple wireless charging standard, and many of its mobile devices use it. The iPhone 12 and above use the standard, as well as Apple Watch and some AirPods models that have a wireless charging case. MagSafe surrounds a wireless charging pad with a halo of magnets that keep the charging puck in place with a satisfying ‘clack’. You can buy chargers direct from Apple, but third-party companies also make MagSafe accessories.
