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.
Out-of-the-box wall chargers included with the device you buy are acceptable as a basic charging unit. Still, these chargers are only intended for the device they come with and lack the versatility and intelligent charging needed to charge any device.
Why is it Called a Wall Charger?
Wall chargers go by several names and, as mentioned above, are known generically as USB chargers or less frequently as plug chargers, but they are also known as fast chargers, GaN chargers, and USB-C chargers.
Additionally, they are sometimes referred to using the name of the charging protocol they use, such as PD (Power Delivery), Quick Charge (Qualcomm), and PPS, which Samsung commonly uses.
Types of Wall Chargers
Wall chargers are generally split into three groups; single-port, dual-port and multi-port chargers. Most single-port chargers now utilize a USB-C port, while dual- or multi-port wall chargers may contain a combination of USB-C and the traditional USB-A port.
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. To put things in comparison, the old style of 5V/1A USB chargers that we used in the past had an output of 5W.
Points to Consider when Buying a Wall Charger
An important thing to consider when buying a wall charger is what you need to charge from it, how many devices you will demand from it, and whether you need both USB-C and USB-A options or just USB-C.
What you need to remember is that for dual- and multi-port wall chargers, the rated wattage will always be shared across any connected devices.
So that is to say, a wall charger with a maximum output of 65W with 3 charging ports will utilize the total 65W of power for one device when only that device is connected.
If you connected other devices, that would be shared across those devices at the manufacturer's configuration. A 100W USB-C wall charger with 4 ports could, in theory, fast-charge a MacBook Pro 16", but if other devices were connected, that 100W of power would be split across the devices.
A quick breakdown of points to consider when buying a USB wall charger are:
- What it is you need to charge
- How many devices do you want to charge
- The power output required if charging more extensive devices, such as laptops
- The split power output configuration when multiple devices are connected
In general, if you're charging one smartphone, any single-port USB-C charger will suffice for the average user, but it gets more complicated if you're going to be charging more than one device or more than one type of device.
