There are different models of chargers and cables. Apple for many years made chargers that had USB A connectors. The IPhones for the past few years have lightning connectors. This is what the Apple TV remote uses.
In the past 2 years Apple started changing some chargers to USB C connectors. The USB C is also used on newer MacBooks and iPads.
So you can buy either ones.
If the cable you have is lightning on one end which fits the remote, then the other end might be USB C.
You have 3 choices. Buy an charger that matches the cable. Replace the cable to match the charger. Find an adaptor to go between.
If you own other phones or tablets with chargers you may own something that will work.
Lightning ports on Apple devices will be here for a few mor years. The newest IPhones still have lightning. The newer chargers are mostly USB C.
The older USB A is still in use and chargers are still available. Google the terms to see pics of the connectors before buying new components.
