An adequate UE Megaboom 3 charger type, is a USB wall or auto charger adapter that delivers enough power to fully charge this speaker in the least amount of time (around 5.5 hours). So be sure to use a charger that can deliver enough of the goods.
Also, the speaker has a micro USB charging port on the back. So if you opt to buy one of the charger options below, then be sure to also get the right cable. You’ll use this to connect the speaker to your charger of choice. Details follow.
Furthermore, the maximum current this speaker accepts is ~2.0 amp to get the shortest charging times. So, either use a USB-C to micro USB cord, or use a USB-A to micro USB cable if you go with one of the older USB 2.0 chargers below.
Which UE Megaboom 3 Charger Type Works Well?
We successfully charge the Megaboom 3 with the AC adapters below. Note that some of them feature a USB A type female connector. So, you can use one of these to connect your speaker if you wish to use a micro USB to USB-A cable. Or, if your charger only has a USB-C output port, then you’ll need a USB-C to micro USB cable, which does not come with the speaker.
Now, to the chargers we suggest.
USB-C Chargers that Work Well with the UE Megaboom 3
This collection of chargers can charge the Megaboom at the max power that the speaker can take (around 10 watts). Plus none of these costs much. But as we said before, for some of them, you will need a USB-C to micro USB cable to connect them to the speaker.
USB-A Chargers that Also Work Well with the UE Megaboom 3 Speaker
This hefty home wall charging station delivers all the current you need for charging your Megaboom 3. It delivers full USB 2 power on each and every one of its ten output ports. This means that you will not bulk up the speaker charging time when you recharge more than one device on it. In fact, this power station supplies enough juice to charge all older models in the UE line of Bluetooth speakers. Plus, you can charge them all at the same time too.
