Even though high-end phones have been able to charge wirelessly for years now, the tech didn’t really go mainstream until Apple stuck it in the likes of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and more recently, the iPhone XS.

The good news is that Apple decided against using some proprietary tech for wirelessly charging its phones, instead of embracing the common Qi standard.

This is the same standard used by Samsung, LG and a number of other smartphone makers. It’s also the tech you’ll find in some Starbucks and McDonald’s branches.


Before you get your wallet out and purchase the best wireless charging pad, it’s important to make sure your phone is compatible. If you own an iPhone 8 (or newer) then you’re in luck; the same goes for those with a Galaxy S6 or newer top-tier Samsung handset. LG also added Qi to some versions of its V30 and G7.

RAV Best Wireless Charging

1.RAVPower Wireless Charger

Best wireless charging for tech!

Why You Should Buy It?

It can prevent overheating, overcurrent, overvoltage, and overcharging

Pros

  • Great design
  • HyperAir Technology detects iPhone instantly

Cons

  • No signal gets sent to the charger from iPhones so the LED light always glows orange, even in different conditions
  • A little on the fragile side. Maybe not great for common areas

The RAVpower is a Qi-certified charger, meaning it works with a fair number of devices, including the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, the iPhone X, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, S9, S7+, and the Note 8.


But, to be honest, as good as it looks, this isn’t the fastest wireless charger on the market. There are some seriously fast wireless chargers out there. At the upper end, some will charge your phone at a rate of 15-watts. On the lower side, we have wireless chargers that will hobble along at a speed of 3.5-watts.

2.Aircharge Dual Wireless Charger

Two pads are better than one

Why You Should Buy It?

Charging two phones at the same time

Pros

  • LED charge indicators are a nice touch
  • Fast charging for most devices
  • Works with cases

Cons

  • The plastic build looks/feels a tad cheap
  • Only one position

Aircharge has established an impressive network of some 5000 venues globally laden with its wireless charging pads; from Starbucks to McDonald’s, but the company’s newest best Dual Wireless Charger adds a little more convenience into your home or workplace.

As Apple’s plans for its long-rumored but ever-absent AirPower wireless charging mat seem to be on the ice, for the time being, Aircharge saw an opportunity to step in with a multi-device charger of its own.

The Dual Wireless Charger doesn’t just let you juice up two devices simultaneously, it features integrated LED power indicators that switch from red to green when your device is fully topped up (a feature no other charger in this round-up possesses).

It also boasts an impressive power output of up to a whopping 20W. This means that, with devices that support it, the Aircharge Dual Wireless Charger powers your products back up quicker than some wired solutions.


Aircharge is also selling the Dual Wireless Charger as part of a bundle with its new PS4 DualShock4 Wireless Adaptor, meaning you can also place a couple of controllers on this pad and power them back up cable-free as well.

 

Samsung Best Wireless Charging

3.Samsung Wireless Fast Charger

Best wireless charging plus multiple positions

Why You Should Buy It?

Real fast charging for Samsung device

Pros

  • Fast charging for iPhone and others
  • Props phone up for easy desktop viewing
  • Works with cases
  • Multiple positions
  • USB-C

Cons

  • Bulky

Samsung has released a number of wireless pads over the past few years but this one is our favorite. It’s not only great for Qi-enabled Android phones but it’s also one of our top picks if you’re looking for an iPhone charger too.

 

It’ll charge the S9/S9 Plus/Note 9 and iPhone 8/8 Plus/X/XS/XS Max at full speed, offers both a flat and vertical position and has internal fans to disperse heat. These do mean it’s a little on the large side but it’s has a smaller footprint than the Belkin.

 

It also plugs in via a USB-C plug (not included) making it better for traveling, as you don’t have to haul around a dedicated AC plug.


Sure, it’s a little pricey, but we’ll forgive that considering its feature set.

yootech Best Wireless Charging

4.Tootech Wireless Charger

Best wireless charging for adaptability to different phones

Why You Should Buy It?

Budget pick

Pros

  • Fast charging
  • Intelligent indicator
  • Temperature control

Cons

  • Puck design is not ergonomic

The thickness of this puck is just 0.47 inches and that, coupled with the intelligent temperature control, ensures that you get a cooler but much more efficient charging experience than similarly priced chargers.

The indicator tells you whether the phone is charging or not. It also has the nifty feature of blinking repeatedly when there is anything such as metal or magnetic cards and objects within the detection area of the charger.

Normally, I hate unnecessary blinks and bloops – but I appreciate this warning feature. It blinks if there’s a problem, and doesn’t if there isn’t. Coins, ID cards, bank cards, iron, etc, will interfere with the charging of your phone.


 In fact, the damage can be double. If you place a credit card near the charger the magnetic strip might be demagnetized, rendering the credit card useless. So, it’s a good idea to always ensure these things are nowhere near the vicinity of the charger when it is on.

 

Anker Best Wireless Charging

5.Anker Powerport Wireless 5 Pad

Best wireless charging for value

Why You Should Buy It?

Famous factory designed, high quality

Pros

  • Cheap
  • Works well
  • Simple design

Cons

  • Not 7.5w compatible
  • Single position

Anker makes fantastic phone accessories and unlike most of the other chargers in for testing, this one doesn’t break the bank.

It’s a simple, flat black circular pad that gets the job done without being flashy. It does lack 7.5w charging though, so you’re limited to the slower 5w standard. Still, if you have this by your bed and charge your phone throughout the night then this shouldn’t be an issue.


Considering the price, this could be a good secondary Qi pad for your office or bedroom.

 

choetech Best Wireless Charging

6.Choetech  Wireless Charger

Best wireless charging for frequent use

Why You Should Buy It?

Supports both portrait and landscape positions for your phone

Pros

  • Different modes for charging
  • Fast charging time for Samsung phones

Cons

  • Doesn’t come with an adaptor
  • A little slow for Apple products
  • Is a little sensitive for some brands
  • Maximum width of 4mm for the phone’s case

 

The best Choetech approach to wireless chargers is pretty interesting. They wanted to make a versatile charger – one that can do a little bit of everything pretty well – and that’s what they delivered.

As the name implies, Choetech designed the QI Fast Wireless Charging Stand as well a stand. This allows it to be easily used while your device is charging.

Other designs on the market include mats (which allow multiple devices to charge at once) and pucks (which can only charge a single device that is lying flat). You can imagine how much easier it would be to use your phone when it’s at an upright angle, as opposed to lying flat on your desk.

 

 

seneo Best Wireless Charging

7.Seneo Wireless Charger

Best case-friendly wireless charging

Why You Should Buy It?

Ergonomic design

Pros

  • Efficient charging
  • Case friendly

Cons

  • Only supports Samsung and iPhone phones
  • Low charge rate for Apple products
  • No QC 2.0 or 3.0 adaptor

 

Seneo is one of the world’s leading brands, with over 2 million customers. Of course, Seneo insists that all of these were satisfied customers; I decided to be one of those customers, have a look at their Qi-Certified Wireless Charging Stand, and decide for myself.

It comes in a really cool and sleek design. From what I saw, most charging stands come in the same windsurfer design with only two real distinguishing features. The first is in the charging real estate. How many charging coils it has, and how they’re arranged, determines the size of the stand. The other distinguishing feature is in the design of the LED light that tells you whether the phone is charging or not. This one was a lot like the rest, but I liked the fairly glossy black on it. It just looked a little more ‘refined’ than the rest

 

pleson Best Wireless Charging

8.Pleson Wireless Charger

Best valued wireless charging for your money

Why You Should Buy It?

Fast charging of 13.5-watts for Samsung phones

Pros

  • Humanized LED design
  • 3 Year warranty

Cons

  • Not very case friendly
  • Fast charging only available to Samsung phones
  • Puck design means you can’t use the phone while charging

Some of my friends spoke highly of Pleson’s Ultra Slim Qi Wireless Charging Pad. I decided to borrow one of theirs, and give it a good comparison. And I have to say that, if you made a graph of the wireless chargers in this list with affordability on one axis and great features on the other, then Pleson’s pad would sit as a blip above the best-fit line.

The biggest difference between Pleson and other brands is the charging rate. The Pleson comes in at a whopping maximum rate of 13.5-watts. That’s up to 1.4 times faster than similarly priced chargers on the market.

 

My girlfriend loves it too. She is an absolute social media junkie and so she needs a charger that will either charge her phone super fast or handle heavy phone use while charging.

 

The Pleson is a puck, so she has to wait for her phone to finish charging before she can use it, but it will charge her phone to 100% in an hour at the most.

 

Nanamai Best Wireless Charging

9.Nanami Wireless Charger

Best wireless charging for ergonomic design

Pros

  • Ergonomic design
  • Safety features
  • Intelligent indicators

Cons

  • Charging a little slow

You have probably noticed at this point that I have a soft spot for charging stands because of their ergonomic design.

The Nanami is as ergonomic as they get with its windsurfer design. When it comes to charging speeds, the Nanami advertises itself as having two modes. The fast charging mode is for the Samsung Galaxy suite of phones.

The exact speed isn’t mentioned in the specifications but, based on my own experiments with my girlfriend’s phone, I would place it somewhere around 10-watts.

The other mode is the standard charging mode, which is for iPhones and other Qi-enabled devices. Based on the experiments I carried out with my own iPhone, that should be a speed between 5-watts and 7.5-watts.

I’m willing to bet it’s 5-watts but with very efficient charging, so it’s faster than your average 5-watt charger. You should be able to use apps that don’t consume a lot of battery power on your phone during the charging process, at any rate

 

Kuppet Best Wireless Charging

10.Kuppet Wireless Charger

Best wireless charging for users with both Apple and Samsung devices

Pros

  • Fast charging
  • Friendly light

Cons

  • Puck design isn’t ergonomic

This is another best wireless charger that delivers great functionality coupled with a beautiful design. It’s Qi-certified, is universal, which means it will charge just about any Qi-enabled device and is also a pretty affordable charger.

 

This charger can easily charge any Qi-enabled device. I think it’s just about on the same level as the Ellesye as far as versatility is concerned. It will charge Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, S8 Plus, Note 5 and Note 8; iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X; Google Nexus 4, 5, and 6; and any other Qi-enabled device, such as the range of Motorola Droids, the Nokia phones, LG phones, and so on.

The puck says, rather assertively on the surface, ‘FAST CHARGE.’ That’s a pretty bold claim to make, considering the fact that they only list it as 10w – and while 10w is pretty good, it’s not the highest we’ve seen.

So, as you might imagine, I was eager to test their claims. First, I charged my iPhone, and then my girlfriend’s Samsung.

For my iPhone, it was great. It charged in 2 hours max. I did a lot of things on that iPhone. Not only was my GPS on, but I was also constantly switching between social media and some videos I was watching on YouTube. That must be one fast charger for my iPhone to be fully charged in two hours with that level of activity.

My girlfriend and I then tried it with her Samsung and the results were still pretty good. She was constantly on the phone, making video calls and watching YouTube, and it did as well as any other 10w charger on our list.

 

 

Wireless Chargers Buying Guide

That was all the best wireless charger I suggested. Wireless charging technology has been around for quite a while. But it has only started to become ubiquitous fairly recently.

 Part of the reason for this is the emergence of a uniform standard that more and more manufacturers are supporting: Qi technology.

There are “standards” other than Qi, which in my opinion is too bad; having one common standard makes it possible to design wireless chargers that can work with any device, regardless of its make or manufacturer.

Another reason why wireless chargers have become so popular is that the world’s two largest smartphone manufacturers, Samsung and Apple, have begun to use them.

Samsung led the push for wireless chargers and now Apple has caught up with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. And both support the Qi standard, which means a lot of wireless charger manufacturers have flooded the scene, coming up with different types of chargers that boast different features.

Doesn’t look like picture

It’s a nice case but it looks nothing like the picture... I was expecting the glitter to actually be sparkles but it’s not it’s a picture printed into a sticker stuck on a case... I only have it three stars because it does actually REALLY glow

It looks like a really good case

iPhone case

I ordered 2 iPhone cases that it said online that they glow in the dark but when I got them . They done glow at all. I’m disappointed

Hi Mina, Thank you for your feedback, we are really sorry to hear that. Kindly to tell you that the longer the light is absorbed, the brighter the brightness and the longer the duration. If you want a better glowing effect, please let the case absorb more light. Any question please feel free to reach out, we are always happy to assist you.
