Even the best Chromebooks won’t go far on a dead battery. You need a reliable charger that you can use to top up, whether you’re at home, sitting at a café, or on the road. Depending on your use case, you may prefer a more compact model that can charge multiple devices at once or even one designed to stay parked at your desk, allowing for ease of access. I've done research highlighting the best Chromebook chargers in 2023 to make the decision easier.

Ensuring you have a charger with the proper wattage, typically at least 45W but in some cases more, will allow your Chromebook to obtain a charge at the proper speeds without dying. Make sure to check your Chromebook's wattage before getting a charger.
