The world of chargers - Power for your technology


In today's technology-driven world, chargers are essential to keep our beloved devices running. But when choosing a charger, the variety of options and technical terminology can be confusing. In this article, we'll reveal the basics behind the numbers of volts and watts, help you choose the right charger for your device, and highlight the differences between the various types of chargers.

The difference between volts and watts

Before choosing a charger, it is important to understand the differences between volts and watts. Volt (V) is the unit for electrical voltage and indicates how much energy flows between two points. The higher the voltage, the faster a device can be charged. Watt (W), on the other hand, is the unit for power and describes the speed at which energy is transferred. In simple terms, volts is the force that drives the current and watts is the amount of current that flows.

Which charger do I need for my device?

Choosing the right charger depends on your device and its needs. Most modern devices, such as smartphones and tablets, have the maximum supported voltage and power listed on their cases or in the accompanying documentation. Make sure that the charger does not exceed these values to avoid damage to the device.

In our online shop, you'll find a wide range of chargers designed to meet different needs. Here are some of the differences you should look out for:

Fast charging technology

Some chargers support fast charging technologies such as Quick Charge or Power Delivery, which allow you to charge devices in the shortest possible time. Ideal if you're short on time and need a quick charge.

Connection types

There are different connector types such as USB-A, USB-C and proprietary connectors. Make sure the charger has the right port type for your device.

Multiple ports

Multi-port chargers are handy if you want to charge multiple devices at once.


If you travel a lot, a compact travel charger might be the best choice.

Tips for making the right choice

  • Read the specifications of your device and compare them with the specifications on the charger.
  • If unsure, choose a charger with slightly higher voltage and power to ensure your device charges efficiently.
  • Look for quality and safety certifications on the charger to avoid unwanted complications.
