Fastest Portable Charger(s) for Samsung Galaxy 8?

Even though I have a few different chargers for myself and have purchased multiple as gifts, I still get confused when I’m trying to distinguish between PowerCore+, Power IQ 2.0, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

Which Portable Charger can take advantage of the fast charging capability of a Samsung Galaxy 8?

Thanks in advance–need to buy a Father’s Day gift!

@Insider recommends the PowerCore 10000PD+.

“Until Anker releases a portable charger with PowerIQ 3.0, PowerCore 10000 PD+ is the best available option for devices that support Qualcomm Quick Charge, which includes most Android phones. Dual 18W ports — one with USB-C PD and the other USB-A PowerIQ 2.0 — make this capable of fast charging almost everything! Unfortunately, PowerCore 10000 PD+ is currently exclusive to Walmart.”


Sorry, I think I may have misread the post the first time. Are you looking for a wall adapter, or a portable charger?


I am looking for a portable charger.

I keep looking for some type of table that shows a comparison on this site, but I’m at a loss.

I’m still a little confused. Is the link I posted above the type of device you’re looking for?


Yes, that is the type.

Thank you so much!
