With the arrival of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, it's increasingly clear that USB-C is here to stay. It's not the only connection standard in the mix nowadays, but it's the closest thing that consumer tech has to a universal one right now.

That said, USB-C is one of those things where the devil is in the details. The most obvious benefits of the USB-C port on the iPhone 15 are easy to see, but that simplicity can obscure that not all USB-C chargers (and cables) are born equal. Without the right USB-C charger, you won't be able to get the faster charging and data transfers that a given piece of hardware might be capable of.

To help you source the best setup for your shiny new smartphone (or laptop), we've put in the legwork and rounded up an easy-to-digest roundup of the best USB-C chargers. Whether you're looking for a simple fix, something heavy duty or a car charger that you can use on the go, we've got you covered.

If you're in the market for a USB-C charger, the first port of call is probably going to end up being Belkin. Countless brands are playing in the space, but few have enjoyed the same kind of staying power that the aforementioned accessory-maker has.

The brand's latest dual-port USB-C wall charger is a great reminder of why. It's got a sleek design with two USB-C ports and offers fast charging of up to 45W on compatible devices. The second port here adds another 20W of throughput, working out to a total of 65W.

The Belkin Dual USB-C GaN Wall Charger isn't quite the cheapest USB-C charger you can find nowadays but the fact that it comes kitted out with both galium-nitrate (GaN) charging tech and a programmable power supply that dynamically adjusts the charger’s output voltage to get the best results for a given device helps smooth over some of the wrinkles that come with a higher asking price.

Now that Apple has adopted the universally accepted USB-C standard, you might be wondering which charging cable you'll need for your next smartphone.

There is no shortage of budget-friendly options out there if you're after a cheap USB-C charger. It's not the most complicated product category, after all, and the move by Apple towards the standard in recent years has made it as universal as these things get. However, when it comes to chargers, there is such a thing as too cheap.

This USB charger from Anytrox sits right on that line, but it beats out the competition thanks to a dual-power design that offers up to 35W of throughput. When we're talking about the thriftier end of the market, a little bit of extra functionality can go a long way.

This Anytrox iPhone Fast Charger won't change your life, but it will save you a little bit of time. Not to mention the money.

HEYMIX don't have the kind of name recognition afforded to the likes of Belkin or Anker, but this 100W GaN charger makes a strong case for the brand as a budget-friendly alternative worth more than a passing look.

What's here is as slim as it is 'souped up. You get two USB-C ports that offer a combined voltage of 100W, plus a third that offers another 20W and a USB-A (Quick Charge 3.0) port that caps out at 18W. What's here is probably no bigger than your old charger, but it almost certainly packs way more of a punch.

This USB-C charger also comes with a bagful of travel adapters, allowing you to get the full benefits no matter where in the world you are. Throw in a thriftier than you'd expect price tag, and you've got a recipe for a good time.

In a landscape littered with potential USB-C car chargers, Belkin's BoostCharge Fast Car Charger is simple, affordable and ticks all the boxes. It doesn't incorporate the latest in GaN charging tech, it's only got one port and it caps out at 30W charging but it's got a snazzy design and it won't break your budget.

It's not going to sate those looking to charge multiple devices en route to their destination, but if you're after an easy fix then Belkin's latest is budget-friendly, well-built and easy to recommend.

How we chose the best USB-C chargers

When it comes to rating and recommending USB-C chargers, our approach isn't quite the scientific method. Still, we try our best to ground our assessment of the above accessories in both our own first-hand experiences and rigorous research we've conducted when it comes to the category in question.

To begin with, we mapped out what the landscape looks like when it comes to buying a USB-C charger in 2024. This process of investigation involved asking questions like how cheap is too cheap, what features people care about and how much wattage most people need to get the most out of a smartphone versus a laptop. We also had to dig into the latest features and technologies powering modern chargers, specifically GaN, and how they are reshaping what value looks like within the charging niche.

Once we had a sense of what the USB-C market looks like, we had to suss out how each brand vying for the dollars of Australian consumers fits into it. Then, we had to condense that catalogue of products down into a shortlist of more digestible categories that match the needs of a given consumer.

Lastly, we also had to look beyond the specs and factor in the benefits that are attached to mainstream and established brands. It's maybe a little unreasonable to assume every brand you've never heard of before is a scam but there is peace of mind that comes with knowing the name behind the charger and knowing that you'll have somewhere to turn to in the unfortunate event that anything goes wrong.
