In the world of wireless charging, there are several companies hoping to make a splash with compelling designs, high-end power, and the ability to efficiently power your smartphones. Many of those companies, like Anker, Samsung, and others, are well-known in the marketplace. Still others are hoping to make a splash. But in any case, they offer wireless charging accessories that make boosting the battery life on your devices much simpler.
Read on for our roundup of outstanding Qi-compatible wireless chargers that will work with everything from your iPhone XS to Samsung’s line of Galaxy handsets.
The Yootech Wireless Charger is another affordable top-selling Qi wireless charger on Amazon. The charger doesn't come with an AC adapter, so you'll need to bring one along. Once you do, you'll be able to place your iPhone on the pad to charge your device. Better yet, it works with a variety of cases, including those built with rubber and plastic.
Anker's PowerPort Wireless 5 Pad is one of the most popular options on Amazon. That's because it's affordable and has an attractive design. Although the Anker PowerPort won't match the 7.5-watt options in this roundup, the company says this 5-watt pad charges a device 10 percent faster than any other. It even charges a device through just about any case.
Mophie's wireless charging base is one of the first to support the 7.5-watt fast charging speed. Indeed, we noticed a difference versus 5-watt Qi chargers in our testing. The circular design has a nonslip finish, and Mophie includes an AC adapter for the base.
If you’re looking to significantly boost wireless charging speeds, check out Samsung’s 9W Fast Charge Wireless Charger. The device is capable of reducing wireless charging times by as much as 50 minutes and is small enough to fit on a nightstand without taking up too much room. Its simple, circular design makes it an attractive option and for just $40, you can get two in the same bundle.
As its name suggests, the Insignia 10W Wireless Charging Pad is a 10W charger that aims at boosting your battery life far more quickly than older 5W chargers. The device comes with a black disc-like design and works with both iPhones and Android devices. An LED indicator light will tell you when your phone is fully charged.
Yootech's Wireless Charger is a 7.5-watt device that quickly charges your iPhone. The charger also comes with a temperature-control feature that ensures your phone stays safe from any damage that could be caused by overheating. According to Yootech, the charger works through a case, but any case with a metal lining should be removed before you place your handset on it.
The Seneo Qi wireless charger is a nice option if you prefer to charge your devices while they're standing up. It also comes with fast-charging capabilities, but it delivers only regular-speed charges for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The Seneo charger uses an LED lighting system to tell you when your iPhone is fully charged.
