These are the Best USB PD Fast Chargers for phones and laptops in 2021

Fast chargers are very useful in certain situations. If you’re ready to leave the house but your smartphone or laptop battery is low, a compatible fast charger will be able to add a decent amount of charge in a short period of time. While some device makers bundle a compatible fast charger in the box, others either don’t pack any kind of fast charger or bundle a lower-powered charging brick. Also, it’s suddenly becoming a trend not to bundle any kind of charger in the box for smartphones. You can safely blame Apple for that.

So whatever the reason, if you’re in the market for a fast charger that supports USB Power Delivery (USB PD), we can help. In this guide, we’ve selected some of the best USB PD Fast Chargers on the market. You can pick one that matches the supported wattage in your budget. But before we tell you about the best USB PD chargers, here’s a bit about the USB PD standard.


What is USB PD?

USB PD (Power Delivery) is a specification used by manufacturers to deliver increased power over USB to their devices. It works with USB Battery Charging implementations to provide a robust fast charging solution. USB PD was originally introduced back in 2012 and has since been revised multiple times. The latest revision — USB Power Delivery Specification Revision 3.1 — was announced in May 2021, and it supports delivering up to 240W of power over USB Type-C. While devices and chargers supporting USB PD Revision 3.1 will take some time to reach the market, the existing USB PD Revision 3.0 supports up to 100W power delivery.

In terms of cross-compatibility, Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 4.0, 4+, and 5 are compatible with the USB PD specification. Similarly, Huawei and Samsung’s fast charging standards also work with USB PD. So if you have a device with QuickCharge 4 or Huawei SuperCharge support, it can be charged faster with USB PD chargers as well. Notably, some of Samsung’s devices use Programmable Power Supply (PPS), so unless your USB PD charger also supports PPS, you won’t get the top charging speed. Your device will still charge faster than normal though.

Best USB PD fast chargers with at least one USB Type-A port

Although USB PD doesn’t work with a Type-A port, the following chargers can be useful when you need to charge multiple devices and one of them doesn’t support USB PD.

    Dual-device charging

    The HPDCA32 PowerVolt USB PD charger from Scosche also includes two USB ports -- one Type-C and one Type-A. But unlike the Anker PowerPort PD 2, the Type-C port on this charger can offer up to 20W charging. It also includes foldable prongs, and is relatively compact.

    Foldable plug

    The Anker PowerPort PD 2 charger comes with two USB ports -- one Type-C and one Type-A. While the Type-C port that supports USB PD can charge up to 18W, the Type-A port only supports 12W charging. It's great if you’re looking only to charge smartphones and tablets.

    For international travelers

    This Native Union Smart Charger is great if you travel a lot internationally as the company bundles adapters for the UK and EU in the box. The charger supports up to 18W charging via the Type-C port and up to 12W via the Type-A port.

    Ports galore

    If you have several devices that often need charging or USB-level power, this Sabrent charger has eight ports, including two Type-C and six Type-A. While the Type-C ports support USB PD and can deliver up to 28W of power, the Type-A ports support up to 15W charging.

    With GaN tech

    The presence of a Gallium nitride (GaN) chipset in this charger allows it to be smaller, and run much cooler than non-GaN chargers. It supports up to 20W fast charging via the single USB Type-C port. The charger is offered in two colors.

    Supports PPS

    The Belkin BoostCharge USB-C wall charger comes with USB PD PPS support that enables it to provide up to 25W of charging to Samsung phones with PPS support. Non-PPS USB PD devices will get 20W charging. There's only one Type-C port on it.

    The Scosche HPDC60 Powervolt PD charger comes with a single USB Type-C port. It can deliver up to 60W of power to any USB PD device that will allow you to charge pretty much every device, including laptops, with a single charger.

    Charge both your laptop and phone

    Satechi’s 100W USB PD charger comes with three ports -- two USB Type-C and one USB Type-A -- allowing to to charge up to three devices simultaneously. It uses GaN tech, resulting in a relatively compact body. While the USB Type-A port is capable of delivering up to 12W output, each of the Type-C port can offer 100W charging when only one port is being used.

    GaN tech

    The Spigen ArcStation Pro is an excellent charger for laptops and smartphones. It packs two USB Type-C ports capable of delivering up to 100W of power to PD-compatible devices. If you use both ports simultaneously, you’ll get up to 45W of power on each port. In addition, since the charger uses GaN tech, it’s relatively compact and providers a cooler operation.

    Supports Quick Charge 5.0

    Baseus has some really versatile chargers on the market, and this 100W charger is no different. Besides supporting USB PD 3.0 and PPS, it can also work with Quick Charge (QC) 5.0. As QC 5.0 is backward compatible, it can also fast charge all older QC-compatible devices. In addition, it features a single Type-C port.


    Unlike the Baseus 100W GaN II Fast Charger that only comes with a single port, this charger packs four ports — two Type-C and two Type-A. When just one Type-C port is being used, the charger can deliver up to 100W watts of power. But when more devices are connected, it’ll intelligently distribute power.

    Multiple fast-charging protocols

    The Ugreen 100W charger supports pretty much all major fast charging protocols, including USB PD 3.0, QuickCharge 4.0+, USB PD PPS, and Adaptive Fast Charging. In addition, it has two Type-C ports, which can deliver up to 100W of power when only one port is connected.

These are the best USB PD fast chargers on the market. As you can see, there are a number of options with different wattages and port selections. You can choose one depending on your requirements. If you just need a charger for your phone, Anker PowerPort Nano PD and Samsung 25W charger are two good options. However, if you want a single charger for your MacBook or other USB PD laptop and smartphone, depending on wattage support, you can go for either the Anker PowerPort Atom PD II or the PowerPort Atom PD 4.
