Need a Wall Charger that can fast charge different devices

Does anyone have a suggestion for a wall/car charger that can deliver USB C PD, but also supports Qualcomm quick charge and Samsung's notoriously finicky fast charge on the S10 series?
I wish to future proof my purchase as much as i can.

No such thing as future proof

When micro USB was released, I thought that was going to be the last charger I will ever need. I purchased over 20 chargers and made sure I had one at every location.

.. well, we all know what happened. But micro USB is still very popular on toys, speakers, radios etc.

You will eventually upgrade your S10, chances are, your next phone will support USB C PD. I wouldn’t worry about Qualcomm

Weird. I literally just saw an article about something like this recently. Is this what you're looking for? (Though it looks like it's "Coming Soon")

Interesting. I will research this oneplus charger some more.
The problem is that my next phone is likely going to be another Samsung phone, and Samsung is notorious for pushing a different standard from everyone else, but luckily it seems they've bought into PD chargers now, so lets see.

If it's Samsung then they have this one: https://www.samsung.com/ca/mobile-acces ... 845XBEGCA/

Looks like it's on sale until Oct 29, 2020. (Haven't checked if even cheaper on SPC/Workperks yet though)

They also have car chargers on sale: https://www.samsung.com/ca/mobile-acces ... and-cables

It doesn't work that way. Quick Charge, Fast Charge, Super Charge are just proprietary names that means that the charger and the phone work at higher amperages. They just can't use Quick Charge because that is Qualcomm licensing so manufacturers just made their own name up. All you need to find is a good quality charger one that provides higher amperage. USB-C makes it easier because the chip that is inside will communicate with the chip in the phone to "handshake" the maximum electrical requirements.

Here's the thing, want your phone to last? Trickle charge the thing (i.e. slow charge) so the battery doesn't heat up which makes it last longer. Also, LiON doesn't like being drained to 0 all the time, keep it around the...I forget, 50-80% mark and the battery is very happy and lasts longer. Samsung phones and tablets have software that can force a slower charge. If I need a really fast charge once in a while then I change my settings but it's always on a slow charge. Feeling really lazy? Stick it on a wireless charging pad but jeez we are getting lazy that folks can't plug in a phone/tablet.

For me, all my chargers are Anker branded because they have high quality. Yes it costs more, but the 50$ charger won't blow up my 1500$ phone or 2000$ tablet. Your choice.

FYI - you missed out on some killer Prime Day sales.

Great response! There seem to be a lot of people who think that smartphone batteries only last two years, and it's because they don't know or care about the real limitations of their gear. High temperatures, and extremes of state of charge (for prolonged time), do cumulative damage to lithium ion batteries.

I have fast chargers, for when I really need to use one. That's not very often. Most of the time, I let my phones charge at 5-10 watts overnight. If I am not going to use a phone for a while, I'll try to stop it around 50% before turning it off, which is how new phones ship for good shelf life.

Anker makes the best aftermarket gear, and supports fast charging for many brands that have proprietary enhancements. I guess that they pay the licence fees. in many cases, their equipment is of higher quality than OEM (especially Apple cables). If Anker doesn't have what you need, wait for it, or just get what they have now and skip the very fastest charging to the benefit of your phone anyway.

I attest to that. I rarely use fast chargers because they overheat the battery and lower capacity over time. I have a iPhone XS Max that is now 2 years old and it’s still at 95% battery life. I use it daily and quite often as I need to take client calls. I never charge over night if I can help it and will always charge when I can up to 80% during the day.

"iPhone has a setting that helps slow the rate of your battery’s aging by reducing the time it spends fully charged. This setting uses machine learning to understand your daily charging routine, then waits to finish charging past 80% until you need it."

Yep, got that enabled when iOS 14 updated.

I recently purchased this for my home office

Your text to link here...

I paid $42 back in Sept for it, and it has been great so far.

Sorry not sure if I posted the link correctly

I ended up getting this Samsung 45W charger when it was on sale last year. It is overkill for my S21U as that only supports 25W charging, but i also use it to top up my Dell laptop once in a while.
