Best Chargers for iPhone SE 3 (2022)

The 3rd generation iPhone SE is here, and it’s what you expect within upgrades being sparse but meaningful. However, you have to ask yourself if those changes make it worth getting this new iPhone SE. MKBHD has a review video on this 3rd generation iPhone SE and hits a few good points. This iPhone SE 3 uses Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, the same processor that the iPhone 13 uses, making this iPhone SE easily one of the fastest budget phones on the market. You also get 4GB of RAM, upgraded from 3GB of RAM. Nearly everything else is the same with a somewhat updated camera, and you do get a larger 2,018mAh battery.

With some rather beefy upgrades and only a slight battery bump, the iPhone SE 2022 model thankfully features 20W fast charging and 7.5W wireless charging if you ever want to use a wireless charger with this iPhone. One of the significant problems with this iPhone SE that MKBHD mentioned is how fast its battery would run out; we’ve created this guide to cover chargers that you should consider if you want to get your iPhone SE 2022 back to full power faster.

UGREEN 20W Mini USB-C Power Delivery Wall Charger

This is the simplest and most effective charger to charge your iPhone SE because it only has a single USB-C Power Delivery port with a 20W charging speed. That’s it, and because it only has a single port, this charger is insanely tiny with dimensions of only 1 inch, making this charger have a cube form factor. There is no foldable plug, but there doesn’t have to be because the charger is already so small. Along with the 20W fast charging and small size, the price of this UGREEN charger is pretty low.

Also, just a reminder, you will need a USB-C to Lightning charging cable to charge your iPhone SE via a USB-C to Lightning charging cable.

Baseus 30W 2-Port SuperSi Wall Charger

Adding on a USB-A port, this Baseus SuperSi wall charge has a USB-C and USB-A port. The max output of this charger is 30W, and if you’re charging two devices, then the charging power is split, with the USB-C port outputting 18W and the USB-A port outputting 12W. So you will get a slightly slower charging speed for the iPhone SE, but you can charge another device at 12W with the USB-A port.

When charging a single device via the USB-C PD port, it will output the full 30W max output of this charger, so you charge your iPhone SE at its max charging speed. Also, with a 30W output, you can charge USB-C Macbooks and a few other USB-C chargeable laptops. Also, charging a single device via the USB-A port will output Quick Charge speeds for Android-compatible devices.

This charger is small with a foldable plug that makes portability easier.

Hyphen-X 100W 4-Port Power Delivery Wall Charger

If you own an iPhone SE, then there’s a high chance you own a Macbook or likely some other USB-C chargeable laptop. If that’s the case, you want to consider this Hyphen-X wall charger, perfect for fast charging your iPhone SE and charging multiple other devices, including laptops. This Hyphen-X charger has a max output of 100W and features two USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A ports. You can use the full 100W of charging power if you’re charging from one of the two USB-C ports with nothing else charging.

If you’re charging from two USB-C PD ports, the power gets split between 65W and 30W; this lets you fast charge your iPhone SE and charges a Macbook. Even charging four devices simultaneously with this Hyphen-X wall charger yields incredible results, with both of the USB-C ports having a 45W and 30W split of power and the two USB-A ports output 7.5W.

So even if you’re charging four devices, you can still fast charge your iPhone SE, charge a Macbook, and standard charge two phones via the USB-A ports. This wall charger does come at a higher price than the other wall chargers that we mentioned, but the versatility and power are worth it.

MOMAX 10,000mAh 20W Power Delivery Wireless Charging Power Bank

Using a portable charger with iPhone SE is likely the best type of charger because of how small the phone is and how you can settle for getting a lower-capacity power bank. Since the iPhone SE has a 2,018mAh battery, you can go for 10,000mAh power banks such as this MOMAX Power Delivery wireless charging power bank. With a 10,000mAh power capacity, you’re going to charge your iPhone SE to full power about two times. Depending on power conversion, you may get another full recharge, but remember that some power capacity is lost during charging.

Charging from this MOMAX power bank is excellent for iPhone users. The power bank features a USB-A Quick Charge port, a 20W USB-C Power Delivery port, and wireless charging at the top of the power bank. The 20W USB-C PD port is how you can fast charge your iPhone SE, and you may also wirelessly charge your iPhone SE at the top of the power bank with its 7.5W wireless charge rate.

Recharging this MOMAX power bank is just as good as the output because you can recharge it via the USB-C PD port at 20W, or you can use the Lightning input to recharge the power bank at 12W. Of course, the USB-C port recharging is faster, but most power banks don’t have a Lightning input, which makes it unique and makes this power bank perfect for iPhone users.

UGREEN 10,000mAh USB-C 20W Power Bank with Lightning Cable

Another 10,000mAh power bank, with this one coming from UGREEN, has a built-in Lightning cable with an 18W charging speed. So as long as the power bank is charged, you don’t need a separate cable to plug into the power bank as it already has a cable to use with your iPhone SE. The built-in Lighting cable may not charge your iPhone SE at 20W, but you can charge your iPhone at 20W via the USB-C Power Delivery port that has a 20W output. This power bank also has a USB-A Quick Charge port.

Recharging this power bank is done via the USB-C port, and it can be recharged at 20W with a 20W or higher PD wall charger.

Excitrus 20,800mAh 100W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank

This Excitrus power bank may be too much of what you’re looking for because this Excitrus NitroCharge power bank has a 20,800mAh power capacity and a 120W max output with four-way to charge from it. The 20,800mAh power capacity can charge the power bank to full power about five times or more.

The power bank has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, one USB-A Quick Charge port, and wireless charging at the top. One of the USB-C PD ports has a 45W charge rate, and the other has a 100W charge rate; it doesn’t matter what port you use to charge your iPhone SE with, as both of them can fast charge them. However, we recommend charging your iPhone SE with the 45W USB-C port and saving the 100W USB-C port to charge a USB-C laptop.

Wireless charging at the top of the power bank can charge the iPhone SE at 7.5W.

UGREEN 20W USB-C Power Delivery Car Charger

If you want to fast charge your iPhone SE while driving but want a lower-cost charger, we recommend this UGREEN car charger. This UGREEN car charger has a USB-C Power Delivery port and a USB-A Quick Charge port. The USB-C PD port has a 20W output that can fast charge your iPhone SE, but that can only be done if you’re charging your iPhone and not charging another device via the USB-A port. If you’re charging two devices simultaneously, then the max output of the charger becomes 24W only with the power being shared between the two ports.
