**MODS - please feel free to move this to a more appropriate forum if this is not it**


Could someone please recommend a decent smart wall charger that has the following features:



  • Has smart charging abilities

  • Two USB ports (more than two is fine but but will only use two)

  • Capable of sending enough power to wirelessly fast charge an iPhone 8 (I have a 7.5W wireless charging stand)

  • Capable of charging the iPad Pro 10.5 at quickly as possible

  • Has a NZ/AU power plug

  • Preferably available in NZ but am not against ordering from the likes of Amazon, Aliexpress etc


Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

I've got an Anker one with 2 Qualcomm 3 ports and 3 normal ports. Works to fast charge a Galaxy Note 8 and charges an iPad 10.5 faster than normal but not as fast as the proper 28W Apple USB 3 charger would.

 

 

 

Ordered it from Amazon. It connects using a standard 240v Figure 8 plug lead, so easy to ignore the US one in the box and just use one you already have in the house.

Yep either an Anker or a Ravpower will do you fine.

 

I bought one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NAG3V8E and it is incredibly good, using it for wireless quick charge for my iPhone 8. I have an Anker (5 port, 2x QC3.0) at home.
