iPhone SE 2020 offers terrific value for money but has a small battery of 1821 mAh and comes with a very slow 5-watt charger. However, it supports 18-watt USB-C PD fast-charging and can be charged more than 3 times faster with any good 18-watt or higher USB-C PD adapter using a USB-C to Lightning cable. The small battery makes a fast-charging power bank for iPhone SE 2 users quite necessary. Here is a list of the best portable chargers for your iPhone SE 2020.
