Best iPhone SE fast chargers
Apple didn't include a charger in the box of its $429 iPhone SE, and most other companies from the Android world have now followed by ditching any brick in the box. Thankfully, the GaN charger revolution from the likes of Anker means that you don't even have to bother with Apple's official chargers now as there are much cheaper and no less capable alternatives. 

Apple advises that you can charge the iPhone SE 3 to half of the battery's capacity in 30 minutes with a 20W brick, so at least that charging speed is supported unlike its predecessor that shipped with a 5W unit that took forever to pump up even this puny battery.

You'd have to buy the iPhone SE charger separately, as is the trend, so below are your options besides Apple's official 20W brick that will also serve you well for numerous other iPhones, at least until Apple finally decides to move away from its shamefully slow charging ways with future ones.

Anker 511 Nano 3

Anker 521 Charger (Nano Pro)

The new Nano Pro is now called the Anker 521 and offers up to 40W of fast charging abilities for any Apple product you may throw at it. It comes with a protection system called ActiveShield, which intelligently monitors temperature and manages power to protect your iPhone from overheating or charging excessively.

Just like the ArcStation Pro from Spigen, Anker’s Nano Pro is also a GaN charger, which is what allows its small size and low power consumption. The Nano Pro also comes with a worry-free 18-month warranty.

Amazon Basics 30W GaN charger

Compatible with all iPhones, this is the best price for a compact GaN charger to go with your budget iPhone SE. It delivers USB-C PD speeds above and beyond what's needed to top up your iPhone SE, and you don't pay the brand premium of other chargers despite that the internals are the same. Did we mention that this basic charger is foldable for compact storage, too? Well, it is, and not so basic anymore.

Apple 20W USB-C power adapter

Apple makes its own 20W fast charger block, which is a great choice in terms of compatibility. If you are planning on using any of the wireless chargers offered by Apple, this 20W USB-C charger block is guaranteed to work perfectly with them.

Spigen ArcStation Pro

Spigen’s ArcStation Pro is a 20W Gallium Nitride (GaN) charger. These types of chargers offer much more efficient power consumption and therefore stay significantly cooler while being used. More efficient charging means less electricity used to juice up your iPhone and longer life for the power adapter itself. A win-win situation.

Belkin GaN wall charger

Belkin’s GaN wall charger is perfect if you find yourself tight on space. It is longer than the rest of the options in this list, but it compensates that with being thin. Belkin has added their own form of protection to this fast charger, which will keep your iPhone safe from overcurrent and overvoltage damage.
