AUKEY's Guide to Choosing the Most Suitable Wall Charger
What is a Wall Charger?
A wall charger, otherwise known as a USB charger, is essentially a plug with a USB port that plugs directly into a power outlet and is used for charging your smartphone and other portable devices.
There is no best wall charger, only the wall charger that suits you best.
Here are five things to look out for when purchasing a wall charger:
Compatability refers to the number of countries your wall charger can be used in.
The wall charger with the widest compatability is usually the travel adaptor.
The AUKEY PA-TA04 Universal Adapter comes with built-in four types of international plugs (UK/US/EU/AU Plug) that cover over 150 countries.
These include Europe, USA, UK, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, South Korea, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Middle East, etc.
Compatability also refers to the number of ports your wall charger has and the types of devices it can charge.
The AUKEY PA-TA04 Universal Adapter allows you to simultaneously charge six devices with its three USB ports, one Type-C port, and two AC ports.
Some wireless charging stations (e.g. the AUKEY LC-A3 Aircore Series 3 in 1 Wireless Charging Station) are also only compatible with some devices (e.g. Apple devices), so do bear that in mind.
2. Power Output
Wall chargers also come with many different power outputs, usually rated in watts (W).
Single-port wall chargers are usually about 20-30W, but multi-port types can be between 60-100W.
With the latter, more powerful ones are capable of charging some laptops.
Looking for a wall charger that can simultaneously charge two devices and has a sufficiently high power output?
Equipped with an 20W Power Delivery 3.0 port and a 12W USB port, this charger supports simultaneous charging for two devices.
3. Charging Speed
Some wall chargers in Singapore allow for rapid charging if it is of the same fast charging standard as your smartphone.
Common fast charging standards include Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Power Delivery.

Some wall chargers are more portable than others because of their compact design.
One example is the AUKEY PA-F3S 32W Swift Series PD Dual USB-C & USB-A Wall Charger.
Its extremely small form factor ensures maximum portability wherever you go.
The design of the wall charger refers to whether it is designed with safeguards in place to ensure safe and reliable charging.
For example, the AUKEY PA-Y23 USB-C 63W 5-Port Fast Charge PD Universal Charging Port Station's advanced circuitry with built-in safeguards protects your devices against excessive current, overheating, and overcharging.
