Which is the best place to buy smartphone chargers?
The place to buy a smartphone is from the official website. It would be best to use the original charger to charge your phone and keep the battery healthy. But if your smartphone is over three years old, the manufacturer stops making chargers for a particular phone.
Other than that, you can visit the nearest shop in your area and look for the ideal charger for your smartphone, but before buying it, look at the charger’s current output. If your smartphone needs an 18Watt charger, look for that one only. Don’t go for another one.
Buying a charger with a lower current can make your phone charge slowly.

- Mostly gets damaged in a few months.
These problems are faced mostly you have purchased smartphones under $300 – $400. But if you have bought smartphones above $500, the companies provide a good charger with a charging cable, so you don’t have to replace it with the new one.
