Here are the best USB-C chargers and wireless chargers that provide fast and comfortable charging speeds to let you use your Pixel Fold for longer.
The Google Pixel Fold was announced on May 10, at the Google I/O Developers Conference. It’s the first foldable smartphone from the software giant, and you should know that the device doesn’t come with a power adapter. Inside the box, you’ll receive only the bare essentials, including a USB-C to USB-C cable, a warranty card, a Switch adapter, manuals, and a SIM ejector pin. If you don’t already have the 30W USB-C power adapter, you’ll likely have to pick up a charger to juice up your new foldable in the shortest time possible.
Here, we collected some of the best USB-C chargers and wireless chargers that provide fast, and comfortable charging speeds to keep the lights on, on your new foldable.

Your options are fairly limited if you’re after the fastest wired and wireless charging speeds. Your only option is to go with the original Google Pixel Stand and the Google-made power adapter, which will provide up to 30W charging speeds whether you charge your Pixel Fold via a wired or wireless connection.
However, if speed isn’t a major concern, there are many options available at different price points, most of which will provide comfortable speeds, up to 12W or slightly higher. The reason behind some of these accessories not providing the same 20W+ charging rate is that these aren’t certified by Google; hence they’ll be limited to what Google allows. Most companies do this to promote their own accessories and products. Still, the good news is that whichever charger you decide to end up with, it’ll provide at least 10W charging speeds that can slowly charge your Pixel Fold throughout the day – which is especially useful for those charging at night, or while they’re working from home or in the office.
The Pixel Fold is Google’s first foldable smartphone offering some of the finest hardware and software on the market. The device features a 5.8-inch cover display and a big 7.6-inch foldable display. It is powered by the Tensor G2 chipset and is backed by a 4,821 mAh battery.
