These are the Best Chargers and Cables for the Apple iPhone SE 3 (2022)

Apple finally revealed the iPhone SE 3 (2022) during its Peek Performance virtual event. This budget phone includes powerful internal wrapped in an outdated shell. And that’s expected, as it’s typical of the company to feature old iPhone designs on new SE models, as you can read in our iPhone SE 3 review. If you buy an iPhone SE 3, you get to use 5G and Apple’s fastest mobile chip so far — the A15 Bionic — without overspending. Following your purchase, a wise idea would be to buy a case and a screen protector for your new phone. This ensures that its glass build isn’t as exposed and that potential accidents aren’t as damaging. Another wise idea would be buying a charger — as the iPhone’s box doesn’t include one. Here’s a list of the best chargers and cables for the iPhone SE 3 (2022).

XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY

Best chargers for the iPhone SE 3 (2022)

    Official

    This fast charger from Apple will fill half of your iPhone SE 3's battery in 30 minutes only. It has a USB Type-C port and works with iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and AirPods.

    Reliable

    This fast charger from Belkin has a USB Type-C port and offers a reliable charging experience. However, your iPhone will be able to take advantage of 20W only (not 25W) — a limit that affects all chargers.

    Tiny

    Despite its tiny form factor, this USB Type-C charger can deliver up to 30W on supported devices. Your iPhone will be able to take advantage of 20W only. It's ideal for those who travel a lot and don't have plenty of storage space.

Best cables for the iPhone SE 3 (2022)

    6ft

    This 6ft (1.83m) cable from Anker is compatible with USB Type-C adapters and supports fast charging when paired with the right charger.

    Official (USB C)

    This is Apple's official 1m USB-C to Lightning cable. It supports fast charging on the iPhone SE 3 when paired with a compatible adapter.

    Official (USB A)

    If you have an adapter with a USB Type-A port, this official 1m cable from Apple works as expected. It doesn't support fast charging, though.

The iPhone SE 3 (2022) has great battery life, at least if you believe Apple (it doesn’t). Apple states that you can play up to 50 hours of audio on a single charge. Of course, this measurement depends on several factors that are likely not met in real life. As we mention in our review, the small battery does not last through a full day all the time. For lower usage customers, they may get through their day without needing to fully charge it more than once. It’s also worth noting that using a 20W (or higher) charger will fill 50% of its battery in only half an hour.

If I personally had to choose one of these chargers for my iPhone SE 3 (2022), I would go for the Apple 20W USB-C Power Adapter. That’s because it’s specifically designed for products released by the company. Apple devices and accessories tend to be durable and work as expected. So by buying this one I won’t have to worry about potential quality issues or malfunctioning.
