Apple has upgraded its baseline iPad to the latest generation with a new design and a 10.9-inch display. The iPad Pros also get a bump to the latest M2 chip. Thankfully, unlike iPhones, you still get a charger in the box to juice up your iPad as soon as you get it out of the box. However, you may still want to pick up a separate iPad 10 or iPad Pro charger to use at your desk or maybe even when traveling.
To make things easier for you, we’ve curated a list of some of the best chargers for iPad 10th Generation and the iPad Pro 2022. There are chargers with a single port, multiple ports, and with cables included. Pick the one that appeals to you the most.

Let’s get to the chargers now.
1. Anker Nano 3 30W Charger
The Anker Nano 3 is one of the best chargers for the iPad 10.9-inch if you’re looking for a brick that’s portable and easy to carry around. It’s much smaller than the Apple charger for the iPad 10, thanks to the fact that it’s a GaN charger which means you get a smaller form factor along with better thermals. The maximum output is 30W which is perfect for the iPad Pro and can even charge your MacBook Air.
The reason why this charger is recommended while traveling is that it has foldable plugs that make the entire package even smaller. You can even fit this adapter into your denim pockets which is always handy. It’s a good multi-purpose charger that can charge all of your USB-C devices, not just the new iPad. Further, it also comes with a 24-month warranty.
2. Spigen 45W Charger With USB-C Cable
The 45W output from this Spigen charger means you can even charge your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with a single adapter. If you’re traveling, you can have this adapter in your backpack to charge your laptop, iPad, and iPhone which will surely clear some clutter. The extra cable is also a bonus since you can now have one cable for traveling while the default cable stays at home or in your office.
You also get foldable prongs making it a good fit for traveling. The only drawback of this charger is that despite the high wattage, you only get a single USB-C port. This can be limiting if you want to charge multiple devices simultaneously. When traveling, you want to ensure all your devices are charged up at all times so you may have to carry multiple adapters for each device. Similar to Anker, you also get a 24-month warranty with Spigen.
3. UGREEN Nexode 45W Dual USB-C Charger
This is the best fast charger for the iPad 10 in terms of versatility and portability. It has a solid metallic chassis that houses 2 USB-C ports. When using a single port, the charger can output at 45W, good enough to charge a MacBook Pro 13 or an Ultrabook. If you want to use both ports, the power is split into 25W and 20W.
You can use the 20W output to charge the iPad 10 at its maximum supported speed while the 25W output can charge your smartphone or the iPad Pro. When not charging the iPad, you can use one port to charge your phone and another to charge an accessory like a smartwatch or headphones. The foldable plug is the cherry on top making it great for traveling.
4. Belkin 45W Dual USB-C Charger with Cable
Apart from the cable in the box, the only parameter separating the UGREEN adapter from this Belkin charger is the fact that this one is made of plastic while the UGREEN one has a metallic body. The material used in the construction of both chargers isn’t important, though, as both of them are GaN chargers with the same output rating.
So, if you want the USB-C to USB-C cable to charge an extra device like a MacBook or an Android phone, you can opt for this charger from Belkin. The brand also offers 2 years of warranty along with coverage of up to $2,500 worth of electronics if something goes wrong. And yes, this also has foldable plugs for easy storage.
5. Apple 35W Dual USB-C Power Adapter
Some of you may want to use first-party accessories only which is understandable. If you’re one of those and want to charge 2 devices simultaneously, you have no other option than getting this dual USB-C power adapter from Apple. While most multi-port chargers have ports on the front, Apple has decided to do things differently and has provided ports on the bottom of the adapter.
Using both ports simultaneously, you get an output of 20W from one port while the other outputs at 15W. While this isn’t the fastest in the world, it’s still good enough to charge your iPad 10 and an iPhone simultaneously. You also get foldable plugs which is great. However, what is not great is that this adapter is wider than most chargers so it takes up a lot of space on a power strip or a wall outlet that has 2 sockets side-by-side.
6. UGREEN 100W 4-Port Charger
This is the ultimate travel charger for all your power needs. It’s quite compact, has foldable plugs, and comes with 4 ports that can charge pretty much all your devices simultaneously. When using a single USB-C port, you can charge even a large laptop like a MacBook Pro 16. When the power is split, you still get enough wattage to charge a medium-sized laptop and an iPad 10.9.
Some users have reported that plugging in devices to all 3 USB-C ports reduces the power output which is indeed true. This is a drawback since you cannot utilize all the ports on the charger at once if you want to charge high-power devices. Nevertheless, it’s a good charger for the price if you don’t want to use all 3 USB-C ports at once.
