Hi, I’ve recently switched to a FP3+ from an iPhone 6. Unfortunately this means I have to buy a new mains charger as my current ones are only 500mA so charge really slowly.
I might as well use this as an opportunity to get a decent future-proof mains charger though, so I’m looking for one that handles both QuickCharge3.0 and USB PowerDelivery so that I can use it for charging products using either of the standards.
Ideally it will be GaN too for the sake of size and power efficiency, but I think most modern chargers will be using that by now anyway.
Right now I’m primarily looking at this Ugreen charger and this imuto one too. There’s a Duracell one doesn’t look like a bad option either. Does anyone have any recommendations that fit within my requirements?
QuickCharge 4.0 devices should be compatible with both standards - QC 4.0 is essentially USB PD with backwards compatibility for previous QC standards added.
Fairphone’s own UK charger looks like a very future-proof solution with both USB-A and -C ports on it, however it’s sadly out of stock for the moment. (I assume you’re in the UK or a country with similar power sockets, because you linked chargers with a UK plug in your post.)
Oh cool, I didn’t realise that! That should open up a few more options for me then as I have just been limiting myself to chargers that specified QC3.0 & PD.
I probably would’ve gone for Fairphone’s own charger, but it seems to have been out of stock for a while as you said. I set it to notify me when they get restocked, but I’ll have a look around for other options now that I’m aware of QC4+. Do you know if Fairphone’s dual-port charger uses QC4+?
Has anyone used Anker chargers with the Fairphone? I’m thinking the Anker 735 might be suitable.
At first I thought their PowerIQ was another proprietary charging standard, but it looks like PowerIQ2.0 is compatible with Qualcomm QC3.0, and although I can’t find information on PowerIQ3.0 specifically being compatible with QC4/4+/5, it generically states on Anker’s website that it’s compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge.
