The best iPhone chargers 2020: the perfect cables, mats and blocks for your iPhone

The bigger and better Apple’s batteries get, the bigger the screens and the more powerful the processors we attach them to. That means we all still need to charge our iPhones regularly.

There are two kinds of charging: wired charging and wireless. Wired can be faster, but not always: what matters is the power of the charger. Until very recently every iPhone came with a 5W charger, but iPhones have supported fast charging since the iPhone 8: for that you’ll need an 18W charger or better, and it should have a USB-C connector, not the more familiar USB-A.
