Best Fast Chargers for Google Pixel 4 XL

The Google Pixel series of phones have been great competition for the other two top dogs within the smartphone industry, such as Samsung and Apple. They’ve always had top specs, and the most notable part of the Google Pixel has always been the amazing quality camera.

With the release of the Google Pixel 4 things are pushed even further with the phone using a 90Hz refresh rate with its screen, and this is necessary as many other leading phones are now using the higher refresh rate feature. Adding the higher refresh rate to the already top tier specs, you end up with a battery usage that is higher than ever before.

The news is that the Google Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL are Power Delivery compatible, so even if you’re low on power, you’re able to recharge the phone quite quickly with the use of a fast charger. In this guide, we’re going to be covering fast chargers that you’re able to use to charge your Pixel 4 faster, and these chargers are going to include portable chargers, wall and car chargers, so you’re able to use fast charging no matter where you are and no matter what charger you use.

Aukey 18W USB-C Power Delivery Wall Charger

If you need a replacement charger for you Google Pixel 4, then this Aukey wall charger is the one to purchase. The charger only has a single port, so you’re only able to charge a single device at a time with it. The good thing is that the Power Delivery port has an 18W charging speed, so you’re able to fast charge the Pixel 4 with it.

The other great thing is that this Aukey 1-port wall charger is tiny, and we’re talking really small, as the charger has dimensions of only 1 inch. To add to the small size, the charger also has a foldable plug that makes placing it into your pocket easier.

Aukey 36W Dual Dynamic Power Delivery Wall Charger

Another Aukey charger that we think is highly valuable when it comes to fast charging Power Delivery compatible smartphones is this Dual USB-C PD wall charger.

This charger has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, and if you’re charging two devices at the same time, then each of the ports can output 18W of charging power. This means that you’re able to fast charge two smartphones at the same time, such as fast charging a Google Pixel 4 and a Samsung phone at once.

Another benefit of this Aukey charger is the dynamic aspect, and this means that if you’re only charging a single device with this charger, then the single USB-C Power Delivery port can output 30W. This higher charging power is useful for charging USB-C PD compatible laptops.

The charger has a 30W Power Delivery port, so it’s quite a bit higher than the usual 18W, of course, it’ll still able to fast charge your Google Pixel and it will also fast charge your laptop. The equally important part is that there are four USB-A ports that each have a 5V/2.4A (12W) charging speed and the USB-A ports share a 30W power output. Being able to charge another four devices, while fast charging your Google Pixel 4 can be very convenient.

RAVPower 20,000mAh 18W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank

Here at Charger Harbor, we think that portable charging is one of the most useful types of chargers that you can use daily. That’s because power banks now use fast charging, and give you the ability to charge smartphones to full power multiple times without having to recharge them.

The first power bank that we want to recommend is this RAVPower charger that has a 20,000mAh power capacity. Considering that the Google Pixel 4 has a 2,800mAh battery and the Pixel 4 XL has a 3,700mAh battery, a 20,000mAh power bank is going to be able to charge the two Pixel models to full power about three to four times. This means you won’t have to recharge the power bank for a few days or even use a wall charger.

The charging is also great as this power bank has an 18W Power Delivery port for fast charging, a Quick Charge port, and a 12W USB-A port. The Google Pixel has only ever been Power Delivery compatible and is not Quick Charge compatible, so you have to use the PD port for fast charging.

On top of the output charging, the recharging for this power bank is also impressive as you can use the USB-C port, Micro-USB, and a Lightning input port for recharging it. The power bank also has a digital screen that shows the remaining power capacity and the charging status for fast charging.

Xcentz 5,000mAh 18W USB-C Power Delivery Power Bank

There are also mini power banks that are meant to be used for charging smartphones on the go only, and that’s because these power banks have very low power capacities. These types of mini power banks aren’t ones that we recommend all too much as they’re only able to charge most phones to full power about one time.

This Xcentz power bank has a 5,000mAh power capacity, so whether it comes to charging the Google Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL, this power bank will only be able to charge either of them to full power only a single time. So this isn’t the power bank to get if you want multiple charges before having to recharge the power bank.

The capacity may be low, but the most surprising part of this power bank is how it features Power Delivery and Quick Charge, and that’s because most power banks in this capacity range don’t feature fast charging at all. In this case, you get both, and to add to that, this Xcentz power bank is extremely small with a length of 3 inches and a thickness of only 1 inch.

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

Since the Pixel has been wireless charging material since Pixel 3, there are also wireless charging power banks that can be useful for charging on the go.

This Aukey power bank has an 8,000mAh power capacity, so it has enough power capacity for charging the Google Pixel to full power about two times. The charging is incredible for such a lower capacity and small power banks as it’s able to charge four devices at the same time with the four output options that it has.

It has an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port for fast charging your Google Pixel, on top of that it also ha a Quick Charge port, a standard 12W USB-A port, and wireless charging at the top of the power bank. You can simply place the Pixel 4 on top of the power bank it will start charging, the only downside to the wireless charging is that it’s only 5W, so if you want faster charging then we recommend sticking to the charging ports.

This power bank also has a slim form factor of 0.6 inches making it easier to fit into a pocket along with your smartphone.
