Best Chargers for OnePlus 8 / OnePlus 8 Pro

OnePlus has always been a brand about speed, and this has been the case ever since their first phone. Every year their smartphone would be able to compete against flagship brands such as Samsung phones and Apple’s iPhones. Of course, their phones would have the latest processor, but more than that, the amount of RAM their phones would have would be a ton.

Well, the same thing can be said about the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, the brand’s latest phone. It’s a blazing fast phone that can offer 12GB of RAM depending on what option you go with, however, this time around the OnePlus 8 is a more solid product that is on par with other competitors. Most notably, the camera of the OnePlus 8 can rival Samsung Galaxy phones and iPhones, and it also has an official IP68 water-resistant rating. With all these new specs, the price of the Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro is also quite similar to flagship smartphones.

That said, with all these specs, the smartphone burns into more battery power than ever before and this calls for a need for faster charging than ever before. Of course, the OnePlus 8 is still compatible to use with Dash charging, but if you’re someone that is looking for third-party chargers with either more ports or a completely different type of a charger such as a power bank or car charger, then we’ve got you covered.

We’ve chosen a few fast Power Delivery chargers that can fast charge the OnePlus 8, not as fast as a Dash charger, but Power Delivery is the next best thing.

Aukey 18W Mini Power Delivery Wall Charger

Power Delivery wall chargers took a while to become more common as more smartphones had to be compatible with the tech, however, now there are many types of PD chargers on the market. At this point, they’re as common as USB-A chargers. This Aukey wall charger is proof of that because it’s a single USB-C Power Delivery wall charger that has an 18W charging speed.

You can only charge a single device with this charger, but the other great part to go with the charging speed is the form factor. The charger has all-around dimensions of 1 inch, and along with that, the charger has a foldable plug that makes it into a cube. This may very well be the smallest charger that you will ever own, and at the same time, you’re able to fast charge your OnePlus 8.

Aukey 8,000mAh 18W Power Delivery Wireless Charging Power Bank

Another new feature for the OnePlus 8 Pro is its compatibility with wireless charging, and it’s first OnePlus phone to feature wireless charging. Also, just remember, the OnePlus 8 Pro is compatible with wireless charging, NOT the regular OnePlus 8.

That said, this Aukey 8,000mAh power bank is still perfect to use for both models we think this power bank is great to use for nearly any Android smartphone on the market. It has 8,000mAh power capacity, which is enough to charge the OnePlus 8 with its 4,300mAh battery and the OnePlus 8 Pro with a 4,510mAh battery to full power at least once, and you may have more power left over.

On top of that, there are four ways to charge from this power bank, which can’t be said about too many other power banks in the same capacity range. There are three ports, with an 18W Power Delivery port, a Quick Charge port, and a standard 12W USB-A port. The fourth method of charging is the wireless charging at the top of the power bank and all you have to do is just place your phone on top of the power bank to begin charging.

With all of these charging features, this Aukey power bank still maintains a small form factor that has a thickness of only 0.5 inches and a length of 5 inches.

RAVPower 20,000mAh 18W PD Power Bank

Using the 8,000mAh power bank may be limited to use for modern smartphones though, as they have larger batteries and they use more power. As a result, this RAVPower 20,000mAh power bank can provide a better charging experience because a 20,000mAh power capacity can charge the OnePlus 8 to full power about three times without needing to be recharged.

On top of the higher power capacity, the charging from this RAVPower portable charger stays similar to the previous Aukey power bank that we mentioned. As this RAVPower charger has three ports, with a single 18W Power Delivery port, a Quick Charge port, and a standard port.

The difference is that you have three input ports to recharge the power bank, but you can only use one at a time. There’s the USB-C PD port that the power bank can recharge from, then the two other dedicated input ports for recharging are the Micro-USB port and a rare Lightning input port that is not used on many power banks.

To add to the great charging experience, the power bank also has a digital power capacity display to show the remaining power and to show if you’re using fast charging or not.

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 30W Power Delivery Power Bank

Using very high power capacity power banks such as this Anker PowerCore+ portable charger may seem overkill, however, in 2020 smartphones these days use large batteries and use so much power that using these types of power banks makes sense.

Especially with this Anker power bank using a 26,800mAh power capacity, you’re able to charge your OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro to full power about four times.
