Most people are concerned with getting the flagship smartphones on the market, and it makes sense that’s the case. However, the other smartphones on the market that are not nearly as known also hold quite a lot of value. We already know that from the OnePlus smartphone, a phone that is basically half the price of these $1,000 flagships, and yet the performance of the phone is one of the best on the market.
One smartphone that is always underrated on the market, nearly every year is LG’s smartphones. This year, they’re releasing the LG G8 and the LG V50 ThinQ.
Both of these phones, once again, feature the best specs with the use of a Snapdragon 855 processor, OLED screen, larger batteries and of course, fast charging.
With the use of even faster, and more powerful specs, and a larger battery, knowing what chargers to use with your LG G8 and LG V50 ThinQ are more important than ever. In this guide, we’re going to be covering the fast chargers that you should be using for the best charging speed.
Anker PowerPort Speed 2 Wall Charger
When you buy a new smartphone, it almost always comes with a single port fast wall charger. Expect for Apple’s iPhones, which still comes with a 1-port slow 5W charger.
Anyways, that’s the case for LG’s smartphones, as the LG G8 and the LG V50 ThinQ come with a single port Quick Charge wall charger.
A single port can be highly limiting though if you want to charge multiple devices at the same time. The above wall charger that we recommend getting is Anker’s PowerPort Speed 2 wall charger.
The charger actually features two Quick Charge ports, so you can fast charge two Quick Charge smartphones at the same time. You can still charge Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphone with this wall charger, too.

Another Anker wall charger that we highly recommend is their PowerPort Speed 4 wall charger. The charger has a single Quick Charge port, so you can fast charge your LG G8 or LG V50 ThinQ.
At the same time, you can still charge another three devices at the same time, because the charger makes use of a total of four ports.
Even with its use of four ports, the wall charger is easy to be portable with. That’s because it has a retractable AC adapter that makes it possible to fit the charger into a pocket.
There’s also a LED light that turns on above the ports once the wall charger is plugged in.
