We see that some of you are looking to find a battery charger / power supply unit compatible with their new Fairphone 2. We have a nice support article to tell you everything you need to know about chargers.
We hope that the community can help us to create a nice list of chargers used with the Fairphone 2. Feel free to report every charger you use even if it is from your previous phone that you use now with your Fairphone 2! And do mention if you have trouble with the touchscreen freezing during charging.
This is a wiki, so please edit it with the green pencil above to add your charger and FP2 experiences.
Please don’t add links to the list. This is to avoid spam.

Recommendation by @Stefan: I just found this comprehensive article about USB charging, and why some chargers work better than others. It’s definitely worth a read, if you’d like to learn more about how charging a smartphone actually works.
IMPORTANT - If your touchscreen is freezing, try a different charger. The touchscreens on many people’s Fairphone 2s have been intermittently unresponsive. See e.g.: Fairphone 2 unusable while charging
It was a big relief to me to realise that this problem only occurs when the phone is charging, and then to learn that it occurs only when certain chargers are used, as noted in the above list. Unplugging the phone or using a different charger (and then tapping the on/off button twice to refresh the screen) immediately restored full functionality.
