The Samsung Galaxy S10 was an excellent phone for its time, and years later, it still is. Brands, especially smartphones like Samsung and Apple, have made us think we need the newest shiny object, but that’s not true. The Samsung Galaxy S10 still holds up for most consumers because most people don’t care about the minor upgrades released for phones each year.
If you still own a Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or an S10 Plus, and it’s chugging along just fine, then good on you. If you need a charger for your Galaxy 10 or have just gotten the S10 and need a charger, I’ve selected some charges that would work great for the Galaxy S10 series lineup. The charging for the S10 isn’t the fastest, with a fast charging speed of 15W via a USB-C Power Delivery port, but this also means you don’t have to worry about getting a super powerful charger.
VOLTME 35W 2 Port Charger
The VOLTME 35W charger is a minimal but powerful charger with two USB-C ports, and if you’re charging a single service at a time, you can use the total 35W of Power Delivery from a USB-C port. Yes, 35W of Power Delivery is more than enough to fast charge the Galaxy S10, but the better part about this charger is if you’re dual charging; during dual charging, the max output of the VOLTME charger becomes 36W and each of the USB-C ports output 18W. So it’s possible to fast charge your Galaxy 10 and fast charge another device at the same time. In my review for the VOLTME 35W charger, I could fast charge a Note 9 and an LG G7.
|VOLTME 35W Dual USB-C PD Charger Specs|
|Single Port Charging||35W|
|Dual Port Charging||18W|
|Size||1.8 x 1.8 x 1.1 inches|
UGREEN Nexode 45W 2 Port Charger
If you want a slightly more universal charger, the UGREEN Nexode 45W charger can be useful for charging USB-C laptops and for fast charging the Galaxy S10. You can use the total 45W of Power Delivery if you’re charging a single device at a time from the UGREEN charger, and 45W is enough to charge most USB-C laptops; in my review of the UGREEN 45W charger, I could charge my Lenovo laptop at its max speed during single-port charging. Also, of course, you can fast charge the Galaxy S10 alone.
Then, for dual charging with the UGREEN charger, the power split between the ports is 25W and 20W. So you can have the Galaxy S10 fast charging from one port and another phone fast charging. I could surprisingly fast charge my Note 9 while still charging my Lenovo laptop from the UGREEN 45W charger.

|USB-C 1 | USB-C 2||5V/3A | 9V/3A | 12V/3A | 15V/3A | 20V/2.25A, 45W Max. PPS: 3.3-11V/4.05A|
|Dual USB-C Charging||Dual Ports - C1+C2：PD25W+PD20W/ PD20W+PD25W|
|Input||100-240V ~ 50/60Hz 1.2A Max|
|Size||1.56 x 1.56 x1.94 inches|
Baseus 100W 4 Port Charger
If you’re looking for a laptop charger that can fast charge your Galaxy S10 while you also fast charge your laptop, the Baseus 100W 4 port charger is a good choice. Yes, the charger does have a 100W max output, and you can use 100W of Power Delivery via USB-C 1 or 2, and the Galaxy S10 can fast charge from the USB-C ports when charged alone. You don’t need to worry about your S10 being damaged because phones and other devices generally have protocols to accept a certain amount of power from a charging port.
What matters most when it comes to owning this Baseus 100W charger is that if you’re charging four devices, then the USB-C 1 port will output 60W of Power Delivery and the USB-C 2 port will output 20W of Power Delivery, while the two USB-A ports share a 15W output; this makes it possible to fast charge your Galaxy S10 from the USB-C 2 port while you fast charge a laptop and charge another two devices, too. Once again, solely for charging your Galaxy S10, the Baseus 100W charger may be going overboard, but for charging your S10 and a host of other devices, it will be very reliable. In my review of the Baseus 100W charger, I could charge my Lenovo laptop, a power bank, and two phones simultaneously.

|USB-C 1 (Single Port Charging)||100W|
|USB-C 2 (Single Port Charging)||100W|
|USB-A 1 (Single Port Charging)||60W|
|USB-A 2 (Single Port Charging)||60W|
|Size||3.35 x 1.20 x 2.16 inches|
AOHI 40W MagCube 2 Port Charger
AOHI 40W MagCube charger has a different design than most chargers because it has two USB-C ports at the bottom. 40W of Power Delivery is surprisingly available when charging one device at a time from this charger. In my review of the AOHI 40W MagCube charger, the 40W was not enough to charge a Lenovo laptop but may be better for other USB-C laptops. You can fast charge your Galaxy S10 during single and dual port charging because when charging two devices, each USB-C port outputs 20W of Power Delivery. A charging status indicator at the front of the charger changes color.

|Output||5V/3.0A | 9V/3.0A | 12V/3.0A | 15V/2.67A | 20V/2.0A | PPS: 3.3-11V/3.0A (40W each port, when charging a single device)|
|Input||100-240V~50/60Hz 1.5A Max|
|Size||1.9 x 1.7 x 0.8 inches|
iWalk LinkPod USB-C Power Bank
If you want portable power that you can take anywhere, the iWalk LinkPod USB-C power bank is one of the smallest power banks I’ve used. The charger has a 4,800mAh battery that can charge the Galaxy S10 to full power. The most unique part about the iWalk power bank is that it uses a USB-C connector that you can use to plug directly into the Galaxy S10 to charge it, and the USB-C connector has a 20W Power Delivery charging speed for fast charging.
In my review of the iWalk USB-C mini power bank, I could use a USB-C connector to recharge it by plugging it directly into a wall charger. There is also the option to recharge the power bank via its USB-C port.
|iWalk LinkPod USB-C Mini Power Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C PD Output||5V/2.4A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
|USB-C Input||5V/2.4A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A (18W)|
|Size||4.61 x 3.31 x 1.34 inches|
ROMOSS PEA30 30,000mAh Power Bank
If you want to depend on a power bank for a few days, consider the ROMOSS PEA30 power bank with a 30,000mAh battery capacity. The 30,000mAh battery can easily last four or five days without a recharge, depending on how often you use the power bank to charge the Galaxy S10. Also, the ROMOSS PEA30 power bank has a 30W Power Delivery USB-C port and two USB-A Quick Charge ports; I recommend using the USB-C port to fast charge your Galaxy S10. In my review of the ROMOSS PEA30 power bank, the charging is accessible because it has three input ports, but you should stick to recharging via the USB-C port because it has a 30W recharge rate.
|ROMOSS PEA30 30,000mAh 30W Power Delivery Power Bank Specs|
|USB-C Output||5V/3.0A | 9V/3.0A | 12V/2.5A | 15V/2.0A | 20V/1.5A (30W)|
|USB-A Output||4.5V/5A | 5V/4.5A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/2.5A (18W)|
|USB-C Input||5V/3.0A | 9V/3.0A | 12V/2.5A | 15V/2.0A | 20V/1.5A (30W)|
|Size||6.6 x 3.1 x 1.3 inches|
Final thoughts about my choice of Power Banks for the Galaxy S10
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is still an excellent choice for a phone even after some time later. As declining new smartphone sales show, most consumers don’t care about owning the latest tech. The Galaxy S10 doesn’t have the fastest charging compared to the other phones on the market, but it’s decent. It’s still compatible with Power Delivery, so you can use a minimal charger such as the VOLTME 35W charger or a higher-end Baseus 100W charger that can be useful for fast charging the S10 and a laptop.
