These are the best Galaxy Note 20 fast chargers you can buy right now
Options include fast wall chargers, car chargers, and a power bank
Samsung has officially pulled the wraps off the Galaxy Note 20 series. The Galaxy Note 20 and the Note 20 Ultra feature a specs list that warrants their hefty price tags. The onboard Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC brings a good upgrade in terms of performance while the improved S Pen, wireless DeX mode, and an upgraded camera setup add to the premium experience. The Galaxy Note 20 and the Note 20 Ultra also get bigger batteries rated at 4,300mAh and 4,500mAh, respectively, with support for fast chargers.
Although the new devices come with beefier batteries, Samsung is taking a step backward when it comes to charging. Both — the Galaxy Note 20 and the Note 20 Ultra — support 25W fast wired charging along with 15W wireless charging. Notably, the wired charging rate gets a downgrade from 45W on the Galaxy Note 10 series. Samsung does not clarify if this is to ensure the longevity of the battery or something else but, it does claim that the 25W fast wired charging is sufficient to charge 50% of the battery in just 30 minutes.
We have made a list of the best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra wired fast chargers. The options are classified as wall chargers, car chargers, and power banks.
Best Galaxy Note 20 fast chargers
If you are planning to buy either of the Note 20 devices, Samsung includes the 25W fast wired charger in the box. But if you want fewer charging bricks and wires cluttering your desk, have multiple devices but limited access to power outlets, or just leaning into essentialism, it makes sense to buy a charger that can charge various devices. It would be even better if the charger can charge multiple devices at the same time. Samsung may follow Apple and start shipping smartphones without chargers, so buying a common charger may be a sensible call.
Samsung relies on USB-C Power Delivery (USB-PD) version 3.0 along with Programmable Power Supply (PPS). PPS is a technology that allows the charging brick to dynamically control the output voltage and current, and this dynamic control allows the fastest feasible charging rate without excessive heating. Here are the PPS-enabled options that are compatible with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra:
- The Anker 65W charger is a versatile power solution with high power output. Besides charging the Galaxy Note 20, it can charge a variety of devices ranging from notebooks such as the Apple MacBook or XPS 13 or 15 to flagship smartphones from Apple, Google, and many other brands. The charger has a compact footprint and supports USB-PD 3.0 with PPS, extending support for the 45W Super Fast Charging standard adopted by Samsung. The charger does not come with a cable meaning you will either have to use the ones including in the box or buy a new one.
- This 45W fast charger from ELECJECT is the most affordable solution with support for PPS. It supports the Super Fast Charging protocol by Samsung with up to 45W output, which means you can also use it for the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S20 devices. Meanwhile, you can also use the charger to charge a variety of notebooks as well as other smartphones that support USB-PD. Lastly, the adapter comes along with a 3.3ft long cable.
- The official 45W charger from Samsung can be the ideal fast charging solution for their diehard fans. Besides charging the Galaxy Note 20 at its fastest supported rate — 25W, the official 45W charger can also be used to charge leading Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Galaxy S10 Lite, or the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G at 45W. You can also use this with a range of Samsung Chromebooks and notebooks with a USB-C port.
- AUKEY offers a diverse range of charging solutions, and their 74.5W charger with three ports fits right in. The three-port design allows you to charge two smartphones (or other handheld devices) and a notebook at full speed simultaneously. While the USB-C port supports up to 74.5W power output over USB-PD, including 45W charging via PPS, the two USB-A ports offer 18W and 10W outputs. This will allow you to rely on a single charging brick for a variety of devices.
If you spend a lot of time driving, you’ll also want a PPS-compatible car charger. We recommend the picks below:
- The 63W car charger from LinkOn is an essential product if you spend a lot of time commuting. Alongside PPS for superfast charging on Samsung Galaxy flagships, USB-PD allows you to charge notebooks like MacBook Pro and a multitude of Chromebooks. Meanwhile, the second port ie, a USB-A port, can be used to supply power to any smartphone or tablet at up to 18W. The LinkOn charger supports 12V charging sockets in cars in 24V sockets on trucks.
- In case 63W isn't enough power for your devices, the 73W charger from MANINAM definitely commands your attention. The USB-C port on the charger supports up to 55W PPS and 45W USB-PD 3.0 outputs for supported devices. While supporting the existing range of Samsung devices that support Super Fast Charging technologies, this charger is also future-proof and should support faster charging on future devices. You get a USB-A to USB-C cable in the package and can use it to charge devices at up to 18W.
- The WOTOBEUS 83W car charger is one of the fastest car charging solutions without an obtrusive design. It supports up to 65W power output via USB-PD and 55W over PPS, meaning you can charge most notebooks without feeling any slump in the charging rate as compared to the wall adapters. The charger readily supports all Samsung devices with Super Fast Charging v1.0 and v2.0. The USB-A port, just like the other car chargers, can charge Android smartphones, iPhones, tablets, and other devices at 18W.
- Travel is off the charts for most people in these times but, that doesn't eliminate unpredictability with power supply. PowerPie is a fast charging solution for people who want to achieve the most on the go without worrying about running out the battery on their Galaxy Note 20. It offers charging over USB-PD and PPS at 45W and can fast-charge supported Samsung Galaxy devices as well as notebooks. The 20,000 battery pack charges fully within 2.5 hours and provides several hours of backup to various devices. The USB-A port can also be used to supply power at 18W.
In this list, we have tried to serve you with multiple solutions, and you can choose the best one based on your requirements. We recommend the Anker 65W Charger or the AUKEY 74.5W Charger for the wide range of applications. The ELECJET charger is relatively underpowered, but it is also the most affordable in the bunch, so you can consider that if a budget constrains you. Do note that chargers without USB-PD 3.0 and PPS can only charge the Galaxy Note 20 at 15W. So, we have steered clear of any such option, and so should you.
