The Google Pixel 6a is a mid-range Android phone that gets most things right. However, it doesn’t ship with a charger. Unfortunately, Google also catches up with the infamous trend of removing chargers from smartphone packages – just like Apple, Samsung, and a few others.

android

All you get is a USB Type-C cable in the box with the phone. You will need to buy an adapter separately to charge the phone. While this is annoying, you might not want to buy any random charger, for it might take too long to charge the Pixel 6a. If you picked up the phone recently, here are some of the best chargers for the Google Pixel 6a that you can buy. Note that the Pixel 6a supports up to 18W fast-charging, and all the chargers on this list are compatible.

Before we get to the chargers, here are some other articles you may be interested in –

Let’s get to the chargers.

1. Google 18W Power Adapter

Google 18W Power Adapter

This is Google’s official charger sold for the Pixel 6a. It can output a maximum of 18W, exactly the wattage supported by the Pixel 6a. You also get an additional cable with this adapter.

This is a suitable official charger for your Pixel 6a. Google also sells a 30W charger, but it’s not useful since Pixel 6a supports 18W maximum charging speed. This basic wall adapter has a USB Type-C port and bundles a USB Type-C cable.

That helps if you lose the USB Type-C cable that came with the phone. Also, the extra cable is helpful if you want to use it elsewhere. You can use it for a different charger in your car or desk. Considering this first-party charger comes with an extra cable, it’s a bargain.

2. Galvanox Rapid Charger

Galvanox Rapid Charger

Here’s a charger that’s quite unique. Unlike most power adapters that have a detachable USB cord, this one has the cable built-in. As a result, you can use your existing USB-C cable with a different charger.

Google only gives you a short 1m cable within the box of the Pixel 6a. If your power outlet is far away, you will have a tough time finding a good place to rest your phone when you plug it in. With this Galvanox charger, you won’t have to worry about that. This power adapter has a 5-feet-long USB-C cable attached to plug your phone directly into an outlet at a distance.

It outputs at 18W, making it compatible with the Pixel 6a’s fast-charging standards. Another advantage of this charger is its foldable prongs at the end. Frequent travelers will appreciate this feature since it takes up less space in your bag than a conventional charger.

3. Anker Nano Pro

Anker Nano Pro

As the name suggests, the Anker Nano Pro is for those looking for a small and compact USB-C charger, especially while traveling. This is a 20W adapter that can fit into your denim pockets with ease!

Most chargers can be large and slightly bulky, making it difficult to carry them without a bag or a backpack. On the other hand, Anker Nano Pro fits right into your palm and can be carried around. The small size doesn’t limit the output power either since the nano pro can charge your Pixel 6a at the max supported speed of 18W.

If you don’t want to stuff it into your pockets, it barely occupies any space in your backpack. That’s quite convenient for those who travel often. Since it supports 20W of USB-PD output, you can also use it to fast-charge your iPhone besides juicing up your Pixel 6a.

4. Spigen 27W USB-C Charger

android

Spigen 27W USB-C Charger

You may have other smartphones or devices that charge at a slightly higher wattage than the Pixel 6a. If you do, you can pick up this 27W charger from Spigen that comes in a small form factor like the Anker Nano.

This USB-C charger from Spigen also has a tiny footprint, making it easily pocketable. However, it packs a higher output wattage of 27W to charge some of your devices faster. Since the Pixel 6a only supports fast charging up to 18W, you won’t be able to take advantage of the higher wattage.

However, if you also have an iPhone, iPad, or any other Android device that charges faster, the Spigen adapter will come in handy. As mentioned, it has a small form factor that makes it easy to carry around, especially when traveling.

5. Ugreen 65W Multiport Charger

android

Ugreen 65W Multiport Charger

All the chargers we mentioned up until now had a single USB-C port to charge only one device at a time. This one from Ugreen has 3 USB Type-C ports and a USB Type-A port to charge up to 4 devices simultaneously.

There are several instances where you may feel the need to charge multiple devices simultaneously. This is especially true if you’re traveling with multiple gadgets like your phone, laptop, smartwatch, headphones, etc. In such a situation, having a multiport charger like this can be extremely helpful.

This is a GaN charger from Ugreen with 3 USB Type-C ports that can output a maximum of 65W. So, you can use it to charge your laptop and smartphone together. Of course, the adapter can also charge your Pixel 6a at the stipulated 18W. You can use the USB Type-A port to charge devices that require less wattage, like a pair of Bluetooth headphones. It’s a good investment for frequent travelers.

6. Anker Nano II 65W Charger

android

Anker Nano II 65W Charger

Anker’s Nano II is an easy-to-carry charger for your phone and laptop to help during your travels. Since the Anker Nano II can charge devices at up to 65W, it’s a good charger to use with the Pixel 6a and a laptop like a MacBook Pro. This charger has two USB Type-C ports, so that you can fast-charge two devices simultaneously. There’s also a USB-A port to charge accessories.

This charger is easier to carry the the Ugreen one because it has foldable prongs to use less space in your bag. While it is missing an additional USB-C port compared to the previous option, it makes up with a more portable form factor. It’s up to you to decide which is more important and get that accordingly.

Charge It Up

If you don’t already have a USB-C charging adapter at home, it’s wise to pick one up from this list before your Pixel 6a arrives since you won’t be able to charge the phone otherwise. You don’t necessarily have to spend top bucks on a charger unless you need additional ports. So, pick one up based on your needs, and you should be good to go.
