As above, they are all like $50. Its for a Le eco Le2 and LG V20.


I thought about one of those wall extension cables that have usb ports on the end but not sure if they will fast charge via USB C.

I got a USB C charger from Trademe as a spare for my phone, from memory it was around $30.

I have nothing to suggest because you simply won't get a good charger with USB-C or QC3.0 for fast charge under $50. If the charger doesn't support QC3.0 it will not fast charge either of those devices.


My recommendation is this which can be shipped to NZ. This is one of the best chargers you can buy


None of the big brand wall plate chargers that I'd looked at a few months ago do QC3.0 so they're pretty much useless.


There are no real benefits of a USB-C charger over a USB-A charger with QC3.0 for phones - and some devices with USB-C and QC3.0 will charge faster using a USB-A charger with QC3.0 than they will with a dedicated USB-C charger.

The Samsung chargers support qc2.0 standard which is 5v 2A or 9v 1.67A. I haven't located *ANY* compact qc 3.0 Au/nz style chargers.
I bought a ~$20 Aliexpress multiple outlet QC 3.0 with usb C outlet included, it blew up within hours.
Good luck

Im needing one for my switch, not sure if it will make a QC3 charger do the higher outputs or if it needs actual USB C power delivery compliant. In anycase anything that is more than 5v 2a is crazy expensive for what is basically just a powerbrick with some added smarts.
