These are the Best Wired Chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S22 series in 2022
Buying a new phone charger used to be something most of us didn’t expect to do, since we all got a charger in the box when we bought the phone. Now that premium phones are starting to ship without a charging brick, it’s more of a necessity for many of us. That’s also the case with the Samsung Galaxy S22, but we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up the best wired chargers you can buy for the Galaxy S22 family. If you want to charge wirelessly, we’ve also rounded up the best wireless chargers for the Galaxy S22 series in a separate article.
Before buying a charger, you should know the maximum power input that your phone supports. The standard Samsung Galaxy S22 supports up to 25W fast charging, while the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra support up to 45W charging. On the face of it, 45W charging seems logically faster than 25W charging. But we’ve noticed some oddities in our Galaxy S22 Plus review and Galaxy S22 Ultra review, wherein the 45W fast charging not only failed to offer quicker charging, but it was also actually slower than the 25W charger. So at least on the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra, you’d get no tangible benefit opting for a 45W charger. However, it may be well worth it to future-proof yourself for your other devices. Buying a more powerful charger than your phone needs isn’t a problem, and it can actually help you be ready for the future when you eventually switch phones again. But you can save some money with a lower-power charger, so it’s up to your needs.
Best 25W chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S22
Starting with the standard Galaxy S22, we have a handful of chargers that support 25W charging. And based on our testing, 25W charging is better than 45W for the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra too. Here are our recommendations:
Best 45W chargers for the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra
If you bought the more expensive Samsung Galaxy S22 models, whether that’s the Galaxy S22 Plus or Galaxy S22 Ultra, you might want to get a 45W charger instead. However keep in mind that you may not get any tangible benefit, but if you’re making a purchase, you may as well future-proof yourself for your other devices.
