Brush/USB Phone Charger

Brush/USB Phone Charger
Most smartphone being produced today comes with brush or USB chargers as most people call it and they are very good for charging each phone especially the follow come charger. There are smartphone that comes with fast charger and it's all upon the quality of the charger cable.

Very popular now. Mostly are fast chargers. Follow come charger are original. Found in every home recently.

Hard to find a good replacement when the follow come damages. Cords affects its effectiveness in charging.



USB is better

You can use the charger for multiple type of the phone. And you get to work with different devices with the single charger. most of the pin based chargers are not worth for the same reason. I'd say that phones should have USB port and not some apple style pin and stuff. That's something I'd definitely recommend.

Everyone is going to agree that this is the best charger, just because it can fit a long of smartphones, which is a big plus. You can also change the USB often and use it on your computer, which is a great bonus. Pins might be cheap or whatever, but they've definitely lost their place nowadays.

can be used for more

I choose this because at least with a USB charger you could use it for other devices as opposed to a pin charger which you could only pretty much use for a specific brand and type of phone. I also like that USB chargers usually have a detachable plug which makes it even more versatile since you could exchange the wire with another type of usb and it would still charge and function.

Most of these kind of chargers are always of high quality which means that you are going to make use of them for as long as you want which is nice. I have seen those chargers in the market and the only thing that is stopping me from getting one is because of the fact that they are pretty expensive and can take a large chunk of the budget when I am trying to get them.
Posted by Barida on 09-22-2018

Going with the trend

This is virtually the kind of charger that is synonymous with most smartphone devices recently and it's what I definitely prefer over pin chargers. I can still remember when I was still using phones that were charged with pin charger and I wished to upgrade to using phones that uses brush charger.
Posted by Martinsx on 09-21-2018


Most Mobilephones and Smartphones uses USB chargers and I do think that it's more reliable than pin chargers. That's why a lot of users and manufacturers are choosing USB chargers. It's compatibility with other devices is one of its strengths.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 09-26-2018

Useful and easy access

For me having this kind of charger is more easy to use. A lot of phone now can be charge with this charger so meaning lots of charger can be found to borrow.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-02-2018

This one!

Well, aside from the fact it is the trend one nowadays and most smartphones is making this approach for some sort of technical reasons, but I don't like the pin point one anymore because it feels like you're still living with the old times. It also makes me feel like I'm still an old school person. Though I don't have against the other approach but it's better to use the modern technologies nowadays. Embrace and use the improvement of technologies because it will help you a lot.

More durable

I say it's more durable because I have experienced bending some Pin phone chargers during Nokia days. There is a higher chance of it getting bent compared to a USB Charger. A USB charger is also compatible for most of the smartphones today and you won't have to provide and use a different charger for some phones.
Posted by EfficientNinja on 09-22-2018

Keeping up with the times

These seem to be the way of the future and I honestly think they're more resilient too. They're my choice when it comes to phone chargers - the only thing is that some do have flimsy cords.
Posted by amelia88 on 09-21-2018

Adaptability is the Key

With the development in technology, it's normal to go along with the changes on the things that we're used to. One of those things are the chargers we use. Given with all the pros, I don't think going back to the old pin chargers are convenient and is useful for this generation. Although I have loved them before, I don't think pin chargers have the capacity to fast charge smartphone batteries because they only charged batteries with small capacities like the ones in the traditional phones.
Posted by jaybee19 on 10-05-2018

USB Phone Charger is way better than Pin Phone Cha

I would have to say that USB Phone Charger is way better than Pin Phone Charger simply because it is what smartphones use. Most of us are using smartphones and this is what we always use to charge our phone batteries. It is more convenient and efficient as this can be found in any phone shops if it needed to be replaced.
Posted by NesMarcos on 10-08-2018

Love this one

I prefer this one because the quality is beyond better than the other. I used to have the other charger before and it was always broken compare the charger now,very strong performer and the best when it come the durability.
Posted by mark86 on 09-22-2018

Multiple Purposes

With the USB chargers any one with a USB port can connect their device's to other device's, like laptops and Android Phones to speakers and so much more. So apart from it's use as a charger it can also connect other device's together to help in the transfer of information and data between two device's.
Posted by Kwesi on 09-25-2018

Most common

This are the most common charger today and if your charger suddenly broke down then you can easily find some replacement. Unlike pin charger, it's hard to find it now a days. Also pin charger can easily broke if you suddenly sit on it.
Posted by blackmist on 09-21-2018


I prefer Brush/USB Phone charger because it is easier to find in a store and it can be used with all other android phones. I could also be used as a connector from phone to a computer. I also find it as way cheaper than any other charger. Although some are not originals but not seemed to be fake, performances vary from different products. Anyways it is still the best for me.
Posted by ajahcuizon on 09-25-2018

No competition

USB charging is now the standard and PIN charging is going extinct. Even the most recently released "old school" phones don't have a PIN charger included. I doubt anyone still uses it.
Posted by rlpzbeermoney on 09-25-2018


Usb charger is the best. Youvcan usevit to charge the smartohone and connectvit ti a computer or TV decoder. Usb can also be used with a different plug than its original.
Posted by stbrians on 09-22-2018
I have the same cable for different uses around the house too the above you mentioned in addition to ps4 charging.
I have the same cable for different uses around the house too the above you mentioned in addition to ps4 charging.

Universality / Convenience

I love using USB because it lessens cables and clutters in my house. I only have one usb for all. I use it to charge almost all my gadgets from headphones, speakers, powerbanks and many other things. Also USB brush is more durable than pin chargers. It is more economical and practical.
Posted by anchoreztin on 09-26-2018


Not mention the fast charging capabilities of this charger, it excels both in having diffent kind of usability because it can be used in transfering files and majority of the smartphones right now uses this kind of usb charger.
Posted by Gilgamesh on 09-22-2018
Ooooooh. I love this in a charger. I bought a brand new phone recently which came with the fastest charger I have ever come across. I just plug in and within 30 minutes I have sufficient power in my phone.

USB phone charger for the win

Of course, I'd choose the USB phone charger. It is the most commonly used type of charger nowadays since this type of charger are the ones being used by manufacturers of cellular phones. It is devised to charge our phones faster.

The Votes Speak for Themselves

I think, looking at this topic, the votes speak for themselves. There is a reason why the USB is popular. The only real issue would be if you did not have a USB port available. However, most of us have a variety of options there.
Posted by HappyLady on 10-10-2018


I think there must be no debate about this. It is called a universal charger for a very good reason. People nowadays use smartphones and people who have smartphones use USB charger to of course, charge their batteries and also use the cable to connect their phones to their computers for different reasons.
Posted by theresajane on 10-09-2018

Usb charger is better

All android phones I see nowadays uses this type. At my house now I have about 5 microusb cables to use on my android phone and only one of those pin chargers which my mom use for her old phone. It is much easier to find replacement and cheaper also compare to looking for those pin chargers.
Posted by thejoyrevolution on 10-17-2018

Simple and easy

These kinds of phone chargers are so simple and perfect that you can find them exactly anywhere in the world. They are so easy to use and they go well with laptops or computers when you are trying to pass some files. It is also the most common charger to find now a days in the world. Yes you can find those pin phone chargers but not all the cellphones have them. They can also be easily broken but I do say the same for the brush usb chargers. But yet again you can find these simple chargers anywhere and can be afforded at the right price.
Posted by YoloBoy on 11-16-2018


My vote will go with Brush/USB phone charger because all Android devices use this kind of charger and it is very popular nowadays. The pin charger is actually going out of trend and I dont think is very useful in this modern age of android and ios mobile devices.

Pin Phone charge

Pin Phone charge
This is a kind of chargers we are used to before the advent of smartphone. They are very good as well in having one's phone charged up good. But I have seen some smartphone that comes with pin charger as well, so I keep wondering if the phone company is still living in the stone age or still trying to make pin chargers to be relevant.

Pin chargers are easy to use. Very cheap compared to brush/USB chargers. Old but effective. More durable.

It doesn't charge fast. Going out of trend.


No votes have been made, be the first!


One of the phone company that are well known for making pin chargers more often than any other phone companies are Nokia. Just like we normally call it here, Nokia pin chargers. It's going to be very hard to come into any family here and not see one small pin or big pin Nokia charger even if the entire family uses other phone companies smartphone. Small pin chargers seems to be a culture over here and people are still using it. I have a tablet that uses both pin charger and brush charger.
Posted by Martinsx on 09-22-2018
Hahahaha you have taken me back with this one my friend. The small and large pins. Those chargers were so unique.
Posted by Martin on 09-22-2018
The golden days of Nokia. The time where phone are that so simple. I remember the problem of having the pin charger is you always make those pin broken whenever you sit on it or unintentionally bend it while pulling it out on your phone.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-06-2018
I have not used pin charger ever since I stopped using Nokia phones. I have been using brush-USB charger since I bought a smartphone about 5 years ago. Nokias have also produced smartphones, however, I have never checked Nokia smartphone. Do the Nokia smartphone still use pin charger?
Posted by vinaya on 10-09-2018
I understand that old gadgets were the users of pin charger but technology has its way of innovating and improving so most phones or maybe all new model phones are using the USB charger because it is more efficient and even compatible with the computers. I didn’t know then that you can charge the phone with the computer and that is very convenient especially when you are using the computer often that you can charge your phone with it.
Posted by Corzhens on 12-12-2018
In this millennium, most of us are now using USB phone charger, because it's more reliable, yet it's faster than the pin one.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-22-2018
I would have to agree with you! Most of us are indeed using a USB Phone Charger because it is what our smartphone needs. USB Phone Chargers are anywhere to be found so they are more reliable and indeed more efficient to use.
Posted by NesMarcos on 10-08-2018
fast charging is the major benefits of using a USB charger, another benefit of using USB charger is you can charge your phone through a computer or any other device that has USB port such as powerbank, torch light etc.
Posted by vinaya on 10-09-2018
This is my best choice for a charger. I tried to use Pin Phone charger but I did not like it that much. I like how fast USB phone charger when it is charging my device. If you are a busy person, you would like to have a faster charger.
Posted by superlicca on 09-22-2018
It is also very common that when you forget to bring your charger, you can just ask for your friend's charger as it is considered universal.
Posted by theresajane on 11-21-2018
I like USB chargers for the fact that you can easily carry a cable around and go connect with any device from any location.
Posted by Martin on 09-22-2018
you are right USB cord that can be used with any cable and the same maximum charging will be obtained which I'm not sure pin charger had then.USB hardly have any electrical fault for a long time especially the original ones.
Posted by lovely on 09-23-2018
I definitely would have to agree with you on this. USB Phone Chargers are more convenient to use because cables are easier to carry, not a big space needed and compatible to connect to any other devices like laptops, desktop computers, etc.
Posted by NesMarcos on 10-08-2018
Pin Chargers where the norm before the advent of the smartphone which uses the USB brush charger. The brush charger is a very good innovation because it can be connected to a variety of devices. Also if it gets broken it's easy to buy a replacement.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 09-22-2018
Pin chargers were norm because those were not touchscreens and were heavy batteries with long life. Now that batteries are more stronger than before they work with proper USB charging. And that's why apples pin charging does not work. I think in future things would be much better with USB 4 that is being pitched in the concept. So we are going to see that in future.
Posted by overcast on 09-24-2018
I used pin charger back when I was using a keypad phone, but now since most are face out, I am using USB phone charger, and its more reliable than the pin one.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-23-2018
Yes older blackberry phone were making use of the pin charger. I am sure that recent blackberry is changed. And now they make use of the USB charger. But in past they were making use of it. So it was kind of expected to have the pin charger for few years.
Posted by overcast on 09-25-2018
I also used pin chargers maybe a decade ago. Most phones before were in need of pin chargers and the charging was also fast because the battery milli-Ampere-hours did not have that much because they were not smartphones.
Posted by NesMarcos on 10-14-2018
USB charger is the one I use today. I had pin chargers in the past and I don't find them more durable than USB. I think they are basically the same. The wiring I guess is the one which gets faulty faster. Pin chargers are already outdated.
Posted by Chinet23 on 09-23-2018
Now, most smartphone are using USB chargers and from what I can say to understand about building smartphone chargers to come with brush is as a result of the battery capacity being charged. The battery capacity of smartphone requires a charger that can convert a substantial amount of current to charge the battery faster unlike the small phone batteries that don't need much current to charge.
Posted by Martinsx on 09-23-2018
USB Chargers are the norm for every smartphone nowadays and it's very handy and can double as a USB connector to connect your smartphone to other devices with a USB port.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 09-23-2018
I have a USB phone charger and I enjoy using it and it very easy to plugged for charging, it gives one full charging when used. I agree that it very popular here and good thing is that it doesn't get bad easily.
Posted by lovely on 09-23-2018
The best part is it charges quickly. And we can use it for more than one device. So it can be fun to make use of the USB charger and it is still going strong. Most of the devices allowing you to use this makes this much more usable for sure. So I think it's interesting to see in near future we can see like USB 4 chargers.
Posted by overcast on 09-24-2018
It is also very convenient. When you go to your friend's house and you have to charge your phone, but you didn't bring your charger. You'll surely find a USB charger easily from your friend.
Posted by theresajane on 11-21-2018
Yeah I would choose the usb charger for sure. everyone are using this these days. Its very common to all, its easy to charge to all places, like from coffee shops, internet cafes, fast food chains, its everywhere. You can see it from wall to wall because its really convenient to customers as well its advantage for them too so people will stay to eat or to drink or stay for a while if they have these kind of ports from their cafes and restaurants and they can charged anytime they want.
Posted by romy_ter on 09-24-2018
USB chargers and the point for the phone are better. Apple is just making money off people by making pin phone chargers and they seem to be making random crappy chargers too. That's one more reason people use the powerbank from other companies. So it's necessary to udnerstand that USB based chargers and the points on the phone. So it's better to get that.
Posted by overcast on 09-24-2018
USB Chargers are the norm nowadays because of its connectivity features. I mean with it you can connect multiple cables to a power bank charging multiple devices all at the same time. Also you can do it while your power bank is actually charging. With USB Chargers you can also charge your phone by connecting it to other charged devices like a laptop or a pc. The truth is there's a lot of uses for a USB charger.
Posted by Kakashi2020 on 09-24-2018
I don't really see the difference between the two performance wise. I think that USB chargers are more practical because they give you more options when you are charging your phone. With a USB you can charge any type of smart phone and even tablets. You can also charge your phone on your laptop or computer. Unfortunately as strong as the pin charger is , it does not have the same kind of versatility. If you forget your charger and your phone uses a pin charger its really hard to find someone with the same charger as yours. They are different pin chargers for different phones.
Posted by jaymish on 09-25-2018
Performance wise there is a difference. The pin chargers were not 10KmAH capacity battery supported. In such case only the USB one were made. And those were into the circulation. So it's kind of like market created the need for the USB charger. And it managed to use it for both data and the energy or say battery in that case. That's what I have noticed so far.
Posted by overcast on 09-25-2018
Most of the pin charger is almost face out, so I will go with USB phone charger, it is reliable and it has a capability of fast charging.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-26-2018
PIN charger is almost face out, so I will choose USB phone charger.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-27-2018
I am very thankful that Pin charger was phased out. I own many phone back then that uses the said charger and always the pin inside the phone would be bent or get pluck out. The small pin inside is ridiculously so thin that a little bend could potential break it. I have no problem with the larger one since it is a little thicker compared to the small one. People who don't experience the said incidents as mine are just very lucky.
Posted by Aeolos on 09-28-2018
I still use the pin charger because it is faster to charge and the charging is stable. Although my charger has an adapter for a usb socket I haven't used it yet because I don't want to charge my phone on my laptop for it might cause a problem with either the laptop or the phone. Besides the pin charger is already time tested.
Posted by Corzhens on 09-28-2018
Yes the durability of the pin charger really rocks and tested in the past. Unlike the new kind of charger that can be broken anytime in reasons I really don't know. I always got to have a lot of spare charger because usb charger are not that good when it means on having a long life. You should vote for pin chargers hehe.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-06-2018
I would choose the usb as this is more convenient and easy to buy than that of pin since usb is more familiar this days as these are mostly used by android phones when charging. There are times that I want to use other charger like pin since my brothers are so careless that sometimes their charger forget to bring it home from office. While I am charging they sometimes plug their phone instead of mine so sometimes it pisses me off especially when I am still charging.
Posted by nekonieden on 09-28-2018
No one choose the pin because it's face out. And I will really choose USB phone charger.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-28-2018
I think you want to say phase out? But of course you are right with your reason why no one vote for pin charger. It was just a good memory of the past gadgets things.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-04-2018
No one voted for pin charger because its almost face out and it also charges slower than the USB phone charger.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 09-30-2018
It was a very nostalgic feeling seeing those pin charger again. The epic problem of breaking it when you suddenly sit on your phone when it is charging. Those days are cool and so much to miss. But we can't deny the new kind of chargers are easy to use.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-02-2018
Its even hard too find that kind of charger now the one with the round thing pin phone charge. Though for some still using it but Im worried like what is accidentally that it get destroyed or been cut something like that, like will they still like ca get a replacement charger for their phone? I just hope they still always have extra and stocks for customer emergency like that.
Posted by romy_ter on 10-04-2018
Looks like still there's no one to vote for pin charger. I think this debate are so easy to answer and the pin charger is way to far to win. They both use in different time. So what will win is the one we use nowadays. But of course back at that time when Nokia was popular all of people love pin chargers.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-04-2018
I'd prefer usb charger than the pin because its more convinient to me. When it comes to durability and speed nothing would compare it. And also I can simply connect my usb to computer or any other appliances like tv,speaker and etc. So overall usb charger, hands down.
Posted by Anonymous on 10-06-2018
Well I prefer using usb than a pin one because it is very convinient and it has many use, Usb had a major influence in the tech world, concerning intel Directly profiting by USB turn into a standard in computerized stockpiling Intel have been utilizing USB's to introduce processor and chipset drivers, for example, the eXtensible Host Controller Driver on machines. Intel have additionally been investigating little 'process' sticks that are an immediate reaction to USB.
Posted by jetselle on 10-06-2018
I go for USB phone chargers. USB chargers are cheaper, flexible, and convenient. You can use a single usb charger for multiple gadgets unlike pin chargers which are limited to one or few similar devices. You can use it as data cable at the same time. New phones now use this technology so it's useless to prefer old technology at this point. As for durability, I don't see much difference except the fact that you can easily replace usb cables when they're damaged. There are shops here that sell usb cables for $.20.
Posted by chatbox on 10-06-2018
I actually do not know which is better, but I guess it should be the brush or USB phone charger since nowadays most mobile phones are using that kind of charger. I also found that it's faster to charge with USB phone charger, though I am not sure if it's because of the advanced technology with the USB. I also like that it's easier to have the USB phone charger, as it's always compatible to the other phones or power bank too.
Posted by kaka135 on 10-07-2018
USB charger is still one of the best, because its fast charging and its safe to use. Unlike the pin one, if you forgot to unplug your cable once its full charge, it will just charge it and make your battery bloated.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 10-09-2018
That is the most saddest thing to happen having a phone. I think the new USB charger won't make your phone overcharge unlike the old pin can. That is the strong positive character of a usb charger to overthrow the pin chargers.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-11-2018
Charging with the USB cable is a lot better than the pin one, because it charges your phone a lot faster than the pin one, it's also convenient and make your phone safe.
Posted by jayjaydimson on 10-13-2018
USB cable charger is way better than the pin one. I always use USB cable charger. It is universal and most smartphones go together with these.
Posted by theresajane on 10-18-2018
I'd really go for USB type charger, but magnetic/wireless charging really beats them both. It's fast and less hassle because of the absence of the wire. The only problem is that not all phones support it yet.
Posted by emiaj55 on 10-23-2018
I bought a new phone 4 days ago and it has a new kind of usb charger. It is called Type-C. And I remember this poll and want to share this idea. USB chargers are most convenient type versus the pin charger. In this said charger, quick charging is applicable already.
Posted by MomoStarr16 on 10-24-2018
I agree that most of the phones nowadays are using the USB type. You can also use it for other gadgets like cameras, emergency lights and fans as well.
Posted by iambeth on 11-03-2018
Brush/USB phone charger vs pin phone charger: I used both of the two so i think i don't to choice between them because i have two different phone the one is need a pin charger to be able to charge so i can't ignore its importance it was durable and i don't have problem with it, I used it in 3 years already. I my other phone i used the usb one, the advantage on this kind of charher you can also use this in computers of television to access your files so therefore i will be favor of the two.
