The 2nd generation iPhone SE is a solid budget iPhone for 2020. It comes with the latest A13 Bionic processor, the same primary camera as the flagship iPhone 11 Pro, a small form-factor, wireless charging, and support for 18W fast charging as well which can charge the phone up to 50% in just 30 minutes. The problem is, Apple doesn’t ship an 18w fast charger in the box with the iPhone SE, which means you’re gonna have to buy it. So, here are the 7 best iPhone SE fast chargers you can buy.
1. Apple 18W USB-C Adapter
Apple does make its very own 18W fast charger that it ships with the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, and if you want, you can buy that same adapter for the iPhone SE as well. It will set you back by $23, which is well above what other chargers cost, but that’s your call.
The adapter comes with a single USB-C port, which means you’re gonna have to buy a USB-C to Lightning cable as well — yeah, Apple gives a USB-A to Lightning cable in the box with the iPhone SE 2, and that won’t work with this adapter.
Buy from Amazon ($23)
2. Anker 2-Port Charger
Anker makes some of the best third-party charging accessories for the iPhone, and the iPhone SE 2 is no different. The Anker 2 port charger is a great buy if you want something that can charge two of your devices at the same time. This iPhone adapter comes with a USB-C port with 18W USB Power Delivery support to fast charge your iPhone SE, and a regular USB Type-A port to charge any and all other devices.
The adapter comes in a small, pocket-friendly size, and supports a maximum output power of 30W, which means you can charge your iPhone at 18W, and another device at 12W when needed. Moreover, Anker offers an 18 month warranty on the adapter.
Buy from Amazon ($21.94)
For something more affordable, and also considerably more pocketable, check out the Aukey fast charger. It supports 18W of USB power delivery through the USB-C port, and is fully compatible with USB-PD devices like the iPhone SE 2020, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and phones like the Google Pixel 4.
The tiny black brick is easy to carry around which makes it sort of perfect if you travel a lot, plus the plug folds inside making it even more portable. It also comes with built-in protection against over-current, over-voltage, and over-heating.
Buy from Amazon ($14.99)
4. EGOWAY Multi-port Fast Charger
If you’re like me you probably have a lot of devices that you carry around almost everywhere. Personally, I usually have two smartphones, an iPad, and my MacBook with me almost all the time, and carrying four different adapters for them all can be annoying. The EGOWAY solves this problem. It comes with 2 USB-C PD ports and 2 USB-A ports.
One of the USB-C ports has a max power output of 60W (which is perfect for a laptop), and the other one has 18W output (perfect for the iPhone SE 2). The two USB-A ports share 12W outputs between them so you can charge other devices as well. The adapter comes with a 12 month warranty and if you’re not happy with it, you also get a 30 day money back guarantee.
Buy from Amazon ($46.99)
5. RAVPower 18W Charger
You should also take a look at the RAVPower 18W fast charger if you need a compact solution for charging two devices at the same time. The adapter features two ports — a USB-C port that’s compatible with USB Power Deliver, and a standard USB-A port. When used alone, the Type-C port can output at 18W, so you can fast charge your iPhone SE 2020. However, if you use both the ports at the same time, the adapter can only output 15W through each one of them, so bear that in mind.
The adapter is priced at $13.99 which is a reasonable price for something like this, and it comes with an 18-month warranty so you can rest assured that your money won’t go down the drain because of a faulty adapter.

6. Anker Compact iPhone Fast Charger
Remember how I said Anker is one of the best third party accessory maker for iPhones? Well, if the two port Anker adapter that’s on the second number in this list isn’t to your liking, you should check out this compact 18W fast charger from the company. This one comes with a USB-C port, similar to Apple’s official fast charger, and it’s almost the same size as the 5W charger that you get with the iPhone SE! That’s impressive.
Anker also offers 18-months of warranty period for this adapter, so you can use it worry free.
Buy from Amazon ($15.29)
7. DiHines Fast Charger for iPhone
The most affordable fast charger for iPhone that I would recommend you to check out is this one from DiHines. This is a 25W adapter, which means it can easily charge your iPhone SE 2020 at 18W. But the main reason I’m including this adapter in this list is because it’s the only adapter that comes with a USB-C to Lightning cable included, so you won’t have to buy one separately.
Buy from Amazon ($12.99)
Honestly, you don’t really need an 18W fast charger for your iPhone unless you absolutely need the fast charging times. Personally, I charge my iPhone using the regular 5W adapter which charges it slower, but keeps the battery healthier in general. Also, I’m usually not in such a hurry to charge my phone to warrant a fast charger. That said, which fast charger are you planning on buying for your new iPhone SE? Let me know in the comments below.
