Fast charging is a must-have feature for smartphones, as every phone has some fast charging tech, so each brand has innovated to make sure that they stay competitive. One of the brands that took the longest to implement fast charging for their phones is Apple with their iPhones, as the first iPhone to use fast charging was the iPhone X and the iPhone 8, while many Android phones were already using Quick Charge or Power Delivery.
For the 2nd Generation iPhone SE, it came as a surprise that Apple made the phone Power Delivery compatible, as it’s basically a budget phone. However, it’s one of the best budget phones that you can buy with features shaved off, but not nearly enough where you feel like you’re missing out; instead, the 2nd generation iPhone SE is a great deal, and the fact that it’s Power Delivery fast charging compatible is awe-inspiring.
In this guide, we’re covering fast chargers that you should use to charge your iPhone SE instead of a 5W wall charger that Apple includes in the packaging.
Aukey 30W Power Delivery Wall Charger
A single port Power Delivery wall charger is usually what is included with many Android smartphones. However, a single port charger is limiting as you can only charge a single device at a time. This first Aukey wall charger that we’re recommending has two ports, with one 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and a 12W USB-A port. The charger has a max output of 30W, so you’re able to use both ports at their max power. At the same time, this means that you can fast charge your iPhone SE via the USB-C port while charging another device with the USB-A port.
Just a reminder, though, you must use a USB-C to Lightning cable to charge from a USB-C port, as the iPhone SE uses a Lightning port, not a USB-C port. This charger does have a small size with a diameter of only 2.2 inches and a thickness of 1 inch, and with its foldable plug, it’s even easier to place this wall charger into your pocket.
Specs of the Aukey Dual-Port 30W PD Wall Charger with Dynamic Detect:
USB-C Power Delivery Port:
Standard Port: 12W
Max Output: 30W
- Input: AC 100V–240V 50/60Hz
- LED Power Indicator: Single Green Power Indicator
- Size: 2.3 x 2.1 x 1.1 inches
- Weight: 3.6 Ounces
CIO 100W 3-Port USB-C Power Delivery Port Wall Charger
If you’re an iPhone SE user, then chances are you’re also a Macbook user. At least, that’s that the case for most people. If so, you should consider getting a more powerful Power Delivery wall charger that can charge a Macbook and fast charge your iPhone SE at the same time. Such as this CIO PD wall charger.
This charger has three Power Delivery ports and a single USB-A port. Two of the first USB-C PD ports on this charger have a 65W port, making them useful to charge a Macbook at or near its max charging speed. To add to that, a 65W Power Delivery charging speed is also enough for charging most USB-C PD compatible laptops. The third USB-C Power Delivery port has an 18W speed, perfect for fast charging your iPhone SE. The USB-A port on this wall charger features Quick Charge 3.0, so you’re able to fast charge most Android smartphones.
With these many powerful ports, this CIO wall charger has a 100W max output that ensures you can fast-charge many devices simultaneously. To top it all off, this charger also has a built-in foldable plug that makes portability easier, and this comes as a surprise as most chargers would use a power cord in cases like this.

Aukey Focus 36W Power Delivery Wall Charger
Another Aukey wall charger that we’d like to recommend is their Focus 36W Power Delivery wall charger. The charger has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, and what makes this charger better than most on the market is that it features dynamic charging. Each of the ports can output 18W if you’re using both USB-C ports simultaneously, as the max output is 36W. This means that you can fast charge your iPhone SE and another iPhone at the same time. Or an Android smartphone and your iPhone SE.
The dynamic charging part of this Aukey wall charger is when you’re using a single port. The single USB-C Power Delivery port you’re charging from can output 30W. With a 30W charging speed, you’re able to charge a Macbook or many other USB-C chargeable laptops. So this simple wall charger can act as a fast charger for your iPhone SE and standard laptop charger, too.
Specs of the Aukey PA-D2 36W PD Wall Charger:
Each Port when used at the same time: 18W | 36W Max Output
One Port Used: 30W
- Input: 100-240V AC

CHOETECH B688 Power Delivery Lightning Cable Power Bank
Fast charging power banks are among the most reliable types of chargers that you can use to charge your iPhone SE. You’re able to charge your iPhone SE on the go, and you can take advantage of fast charging such as Power Delivery. This CHOETECH power bank has an added benefit using built-in cables, making the power bank always reliable as long as you have the power bank charged up.
This CHOETECH power bank has a 10,000mAh power capacity, and with the 2020 iPhone SE having a 1,821mAh battery, you’re able to charge your iPhone SE to full power about three times with this power bank. The charging speed is not lacking, with this power bank using a built-in Lightning cable and a built-in USB-C cable, with both of the cables outputting an 18W Power Delivery charging speed. This CHOETECH power bank does not use any ports for output charging. However, it has a USB-C Power Delivery port that can only recharge the power bank.
You can recharge the power bank at Power Delivery speeds with a Power Delivery wall charger. When you’re not using the power bank, the two built-in cables fit directly inside the power bank and are fully concealed.
|CHOETECH 10,000 B688 Power Delivery USB-C / Lightning Built-in Cable Power Bank Specs|

RAVPower 20,000mAh USB-C Lightning Input Power Delivery Power Bank
A higher-capacity power bank is definitely the way to go if you want a portable charger that can last you a few days without having to be recharged. The one flaw of lower capacity power banks is that you likely have to recharge them after a single day, and that’s just more work and things to remember.
This 20,000mAh RAVPower portable charger can charge your iPhone SE to full power about five times without having to be recharged. If we’re considering that you charge the iPhone to full power a single time each day, that’s five days of use without having to recharge this RAVPower power bank.
The charging speed from this power bank is not over the top, and that’s a good thing because when a power bank has a more powerful Power Delivery charging speed, the more expensive it is. Since this power bank has an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port, the price is still reasonable, and you’re still able to fast charge your iPhone SE. Along with the PD port and this charger also has a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port and a standard USB-A port.
You also have three choices to recharge this power bank, with a USB-C input, Micro-USB input port, and even more of a reason to get this power bank. It also has a Lightning input port. This RAVPower charger has a digital display at the top that shows the remaining power capacity and a fast-charging status to show whether or not you’re using Power Delivery when charging your iPhone SE.
Specs of the RAVPower 20,000mAh USB-C PD Power Bank:

Xcentz 5,000mAh 18W Mini Power Delivery Power Bank
For such a small smartphone with a small battery, getting a mini lower-capacity power bank is also a good option. This Xcentz power bank has a 5,000mAh power capacity, and for most smartphones, that’s a very lower capacity that won’t charge most phones on the market. However, with the iPhone SE having a 1,821mAh battery, this Xcentz power bank can charge the iPhone SE to full power at least once.
Most mini power banks with a 5,000mAh power capacity don’t use fast charging such as Power Delivery and Quick Charge, making this Xcentz power bank even more worth getting as this charger has a USB-C Power Delivery port and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. You can fast charge your iPhone SE with the 18W USB-C PD port and fast charge Android phones with the Quick Charge 3.0 port.
With such a low capacity, this charger is tiny, with 3 inches and a thickness of only 1.1 inches. This power bank also includes a USB-C to USB-C and a USB-C to USB-A cable. However, you will have to provide your own USB-C to Lightning cable to charge your iPhone SE.
Specs of the Xcentz 5,000mAh Power Bank with PD and Quick Charge:
Initial Capacity: 5,000mAh
Output Capacity: 3,700mAh
USB-C Power Delivery Port: 18W
USB-A Port: 18W

UGREEN 18W Power Delivery Quick Charge Car Charger
Fast charging your iPhone SE while you’re driving may be the best way to fast charge it, especially if you’re someone that uses navigation apps such as Google Maps that can drain battery life rather quickly. This UGREEN Power Delivery car charger is one of the simplest out there, with the charger using an 18W Power Delivery port and a Quick Charge 3.0 port. It also has a tiny size that makes the car charger fit entirely into the 12Volt port. The only downside to this UGREEN car charger is that you can only fast charge a single device at a time because the max output of the car charger is 18W.
|UGREEN CD130 Power Delivery Car Charger Specs|
|USB-C Power Delivery Port||18W|
|USB-A Quick Charge Port||18W|
|Size||3.86 x 2.36 x 1.1 inches|

CHOETECH 5-Coil Fast Wireless Charging Pad
With the iPhone SE being the “Budget” iPhone, it comes as a surprise that it features wireless charging. The phone using fast Power Delivery charging was already surprising enough. Even though going wireless does mean that you get slower charging, it may be worth it if you won’t want to worry about cables sometimes.
This CHOETECH wireless charging pad is slightly different from most charging pads, as this one features 5 coils. Most pads use one coil that requires that you place your phone exactly in the middle for charging. With the use of coils, you can place your iPhone SE anywhere on this charging pad for charging to begin. This CHOETCEH pad uses 7.5W fast wireless charging for iPhones, and 10W is available for Qi wireless charging Samsung phones.
The other benefit of getting this CHOETECH charger is that it comes with a Quick Charge wall charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable, so you can start using the charging pad right out of the box.
