HTC is a brand that was once one of the top tier smartphone creators and in a way, they still are, but at the same time, they have been taken down a few notches. That’s because large players such as Samsung and Apple have absolutely dominated the market and newcomers such as Google with their Google Pixel and also OnePlus have been growing rapidly and have been implementing innovation at every turn. While HTC does release some great smartphones they don’t really have anything noteworthy to add but that somewhat changes with their HTC U12 Plus smartphone.
First thing is that the phone has a translucent back, meaning that you can actually see through it, which is something that no other smartphone features. The specs are great and on par with other flagship smartphones with it featuring an 845 Snapdragon Processor, makes use of 6GB of RAM which is actually higher than what Samsung’s Galaxy S9 features and it also has quite a large battery of 3,500mAh.
With all that said, even with its larger battery size, one of the main complaints about it is that it actually runs out of battery power quite quickly and that’s because of the large screen that the phone features. In this guide, we’re going to be covering the fast chargers that you can use with the HTC U12 Plus to get it to full power as fast as possible whether you’re stationary or on-the-go.
Aukey 1-Port Quick Charge Wall Charger
So if you’ve lost the wall charger that comes with the HTC U12 Plus, and simply want a replacement, then you should definitely go for this Aukey 1-port wall charger. The wall charger comes with the phone also has just a single port and makes use of Quick Charge and so does this Aukey wall charger. The only downside is that you’ll of course only be able to charge a single device at a time. The charger does not make use of a retractable AC adapter, however, it is quite small, with it having a length of 2.6 inches and a thickness of 0.8 inches only.

Wall chargers are useful, but at the same time, they don’t have many ports, and that’s where desktop charging stations come in. Desktop charging stations are just like wall charger but they make use of many more ports and they use a power cord instead of an AC adapter that’s built-in. The use of a power cord actually makes it easier to place the charger where you want it and have your devices to close to you while they charge.
