At this point, most people are looking to get their hands on the best smartphone, and we mean top-tier phones such as iPhones, Samsung’s Galaxy S, and Note series of phones, and you might as well add the Google Pixel onto the list, too. Simultaneously, the smartphone market is mature, which means that different price ranges and types of phones are available to consumers. The reality is that not everybody wants the latest and greatest, and coming from one of the top brands, Samsung, the Galaxy A51 may be one of the best budget phones to get when it comes to price to performance.
Alright, so to be clear, the difference between a Galaxy S21 and a Galaxy A51 will be clear when it comes to a spec sheet and real-world use, but in terms of what you’ll notice and what you need, most people will find that the Galaxy A51 is a pretty good choice. The A51 has a 4,000mAh battery, a choice between 4GB to 8GB of RAM; it maintains the Super AMOLED display that Samsung is known for being the best in the industry Exynos 9611 processor.
So even though these specs are less powerful, they still make the A51 snappy to most standards, and because of that, the battery power of the A51 may burn out faster than you think. Thankfully, the Galaxy A51 is fast charging compatible, but it’s not obvious to know which fast chargers to use for the A51, and that’s what we’re covering in this guide.
Aukey 6-Port Desktop Charger with two Quick Charge 3.0 Ports
So we’re going to start strong with a desktop charger, as the Galaxy A51 comes with a single port wall charger, while higher-end phones are no longer even including a charger in the box. We think the next best thing would be to get a charger that has many ports along with fast charging.
Since the Samsung Galaxy A51 has a USB-C port, you can either use a USB-C Power Delivery port with a minimum of an 18W power output to fast charge the A51. Or you can choose to use a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port. In this case, this Aukey desktop charger has two Quick Charge 3.0 ports of its six ports, which means that you can fast charge two QC compatible smartphones simultaneously. The other four USB-A ports have a 5V/2.4A (12W) charging speed. The max output to this desktop charger is 60W, so even if you’re fast charging your Galaxy A51 and another smartphone at the same time, there’s still plenty more to charge another four devices from the standard ports.
One of the other benefits of using a desktop charger such as this Aukey one is its use of a power cord. It is convenient to use a wall charger with a built-in AC adapter; the power cord on this charger allows you to place it where you want to. Therefore you can have your devices closer while they charge.

Aukey 36W Dual Power Delivery Wall Charger
Another Aukey charger that we wanted to add to this guide is this Dual USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. The charger has two USB-C PD ports, and each of them can output an 18W charging speed if you’re charging two devices at the same time. The best part about Power Delivery is that it’s a universal way to charge portable devices, as you can fast your Galaxy A51 and fast charge most other Android smartphones and even iPhones.
However, when it comes to fast charging iPhones via a USB-C port, you have to use a USB-C to Lightning cable.
To add to that, this Aukey Power Delivery wall charger also has Dynamic charging. So if you’re only charging a single device with this wall charger, the USB-C port will output 30W, making this Aukey wall charger useful for charging USB-C chargeable laptops.

Baseus 65W USB-C Power Delivery Quick Charge 3.0 GaN Wall Charger
This Baseus wall charger looks very different than most other wall chargers that you’ve used, as this one has a cube form factor. The charger uses GaN tech, which is a chip that makes the charger smaller but able to output more charging power. This prevents the charger from covering surrounding outlets when you plug it in.
The charging power is definitely not lacking, as this Baseus wall charger uses three fast charging ports. There are two USB-C Power Delivery ports and a single Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. The first USB-C port has a 45W charging speed, and the second USB-C port has an 18W PD charge rate. So this Baseus wall charger is useful for fast charging your Galaxy A51 and charging a laptop at the same time.

RAVPower 20,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank with Quick Charge
A portable charger may be the best type of charger to use for the A51, as you may run out of power while you’re away from home; using a wall charger or a desktop charger may not always be an option, but a power bank can be taken anywhere, and there are many that feature fast charging such as this RAVPower power bank.
This RAVPower charger has a 20,000mAh power capacity, and with the A51 having a 4,000mAh battery, you can get about four to five full charges if you’re only using the power bank to charge an A51. However, since there are multiple ports, you can choose to charge a few devices simultaneously.
There are three output and input ports on the power bank. Output charging is fast, with the charger featuring a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port, a standard 12W USB-A port, and an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port. You can fast charge your Galaxy A51 with either the Quick Charge port or USB-C PD port. To recharge the power bank at the fastest speed, you should use the USB-C port with a PD wall charger; you can also use the Lightning or Micro-USB input port for recharging the power bank.
The charger also has a digital display that shows how much power capacity you have left to use and fast charging status to show if you’re charging fast charging your Galaxy A51.

Aukey 10,000mAh USB-C Power Delivery Wireless Charging Power Bank
A lower-capacity power bank from Aukey, this one is a go-to portable charger for basically all smartphones. It has a 10,000mAh power capacity, enough to charge most phones to full power about one or two times, and in the Galaxy A51’s case, you will get a single full charge with some leftover power capacity.
The charging from the power bank is also an all-around great part for most phones, as it has USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port and a USB-C 18W PD port. The highlight of this charger is that it has wireless charging at the top, and even though the Galaxy A51 does not use wireless charging if you ever plan to upgrade to a newer model Samsung phone that does have wireless charging, this power bank has a new feature that you can use.
