The best chargers for the Apple iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max

While Apple has included a proper fast charger and cable in the box with the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, you’ll likely want a spare or two — and it’s always a good idea to snag a portable battery pack and maybe a wireless charging pad as well. Getting the right kit for the iPhone 11 is even more important because it still ships with a basic — and slow — 5-watt charger.

The top wired charging rate for the iPhone 11 range is 18W, and it can charge up wirelessly at 7.5W. Invest in one of the best iPhone 11 chargers and you can ensure that your iPhone charges up at top speed, which can make a big difference: We found the iPhone 11 only hit 16% after 30 minutes plugged into the supplied charger, whereas a fast charger took it to 50% in the same half hour.

The following options should all offer top charging speeds for your new iPhone. We also have separate roundups of the best portable chargers, the best lightning cables, the best fast chargers, and the best wireless chargers, many of which will work perfectly with your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max.

RAVPower 20,000mAh Power Bank

Slim, light, yet durable, this power bank from RAVPower is the ideal way to top up your iPhone 11 battery wherever you are. With a 20,000mAh capacity, dual iSmart outputs to charge two devices at once, and a sleek design — we love the curved edges and blue LED battery indicator that let you know how much battery remains — this is a solid investment for the price. It also boasts a fast recharge time of just 9-10 hours and has enough juice to top up your phone a number of times before it needs recharging.

Zendure SuperMini Power Bank

This power bank from Zendure resembles a tiny suitcase, but it packs a whole lot of power. You’ll find a surprising 10,000mAh capacity in a relatively light and easily pocketable package capable of charging your phone up to 50% in just 30 minutes. There are two ports, a USB-C, which is the one you’ll want to plug into to charge your iPhone, and a USB-A, which could prove handy for topping up other devices. It has pass-through capability, so you can plug it in to charge while charging your iPhone at the same time. It’s also capable of delivering 18W of power, so you can charge up your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max at the maximum rate wherever you happen to be. The SuperMini Power Bank is available in six colours, including Blue Horizon, pictured.

This compact wall charger is as portable as they come. Just plug your USB-C to Lightning cable into the USB-C port and the prongs into your wall and you’re all set to charge your iPhone 11 at top speed. This charger can deliver 18W of power, it’s much smaller than most other chargers, and it can also charge any other device with a USB-C port. Designed by trusted accessory brand Anker, this compact, durable, and affordable charger is the one we recommend you pick up if you want a spare for your 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max, or if you need something to charge your iPhone 11 at top speed.

XCentz xSuperFly Plus C-Lightning Cable

This cable has Apple’s MFi certification and is capable of plugging into a charger or power bank and delivering the maximum speed charge to your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max. It has a high-quality, durable design that encompasses shiny zinc alloy connectors and nylon braided cable capable of bending more than 30,000 times without deteriorating. It comes in a 3-foot variety for a dollar less, but we recommend the 6-foot cable for around the house to give you that extra distance. We have the blue cable, but it also comes in red, green, gray, or gold.

Moshi Otto Q Wireless Charging Pad

Picking the right wireless charging pad for your home depends on the room you’re buying for. Moshi’s gray fabric finish will fit in most places and look good, but we don’t recommend it for the nightstand because of the white LED on the front. The base looks metallic, but it’s actually plastic, and there’s a rubber finish on the bottom to prevent it from sliding around. There’s also a rubber ring on top to hold your iPhone in place, which is especially important if you don’t use a case. Incidentally, this pad will work with most cases on as well, provided the thickness doesn’t exceed 5mm. It comes with a 3-foot USB-C to USB-A cable, but you need your own wall charger. It can deliver up to 10W, which is more than the iPhone’s current top wireless charging rate of 7.5W.

Apple may release a completely new type of iPhone in 2025

The iPhone 16 isn’t even out yet, but that hasn’t stopped rumors about the iPhone 17 from swirling already. One of the latest comes from The Information, and it claims that a thinner iPhone 17 may be released in 2025 as a completely new addition to the lineup. It’s reported to be code-named D23 internally, and it’s expected to be a major redesign — potentially as big of a redesign as the iPhone X was in 2017.

The main changes for the D23 iPhone are a very thin body and a smaller cutout in the display. There’s also some talk that Apple may replace the Dynamic Island with a pinhole cutout, and we may see that as soon as the anticipated iPhone 16 launch this fall. Other changes might include moving the rear camera from the upper-left corner to the top center. The screen could fall somewhere between the 6.1 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro and 6.9 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
