How do chargers work?

The formula here is purely high school physics but is, nevertheless, the guiding principle.

Watts = Amps x Volts

Any charger is able to charge your mobile device; thanks to amperage, wattage, and voltage. These are the measurement units that respectively determine how fast your device can charge, the current density and energy being spent during charging.

Every charger works on a specified output and input voltage and ampere rating. If you want to select a charger that can charge your mobile device faster, you should consider the one with higher input and output values. Dash chargers are, however, among the fast charging types. In short, more the wattage, faster the charging.

So, which type of charger do you use?
