The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X all support wireless charging, which means you can just drop your phone on a charging pad at your home or office when it's time to get more juice. No more more fiddling with Lightning cables. Better yet, the smartphones work with chargers that are based on the Qi wireless charging standard.
Immediately, all of those wireless chargers that had been add-on purchases for Android-device owners are now far more relevant to the millions of people around the globe using one of Apple's newer handsets. While you can find plenty of Qi chargers for under $20, you may want to spend more on a fast wireless charger that supports 7.5-watt output. However, those run closer to $60.
We've compiled the following list to help you find Qi wireless chargers that should work quite well with your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. And be sure to check out our wireless charging speed test results versus Apple's wired Lightning cable.
Made for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Mophie's wireless charging base is one of the first to support 7.5-watt fast charging speed. We did see a noticeable difference versus 5-watt Qi chargers in our testing. The circular design has a non-slip finish, and Mophie includes an AC adapter for the base.
If you buy the latest and greatest phones, here's the wireless charger for you. Designed to support the Samsung Galaxy S9's 10-watt charging speed (as well as the iPhone X and 8's 7.5-watt rate) the Anker PowerWave stand also keeps your phone upright so you can see its notifications without lifting it up.
The Belkin Boost Up might prove to be among the most popular options in this roundup, thanks in no small part to the device's support of 7.5W for fast wireless charging. The Boost Up is a charging pad that has a nonslip surface and a more stylish look and feel than many of the other chargers we've seen.
The mophie Charge Force supports all three of Apple's iPhones, and the company says that the base is weighted so that it won't budge when you need to grab your phone and go. It's Qi-certified, as well. If you want to go the fast wireless-charging route, mophie's wireless charging base is also available, and it supports 7.5-watt charging.
Anker offers a popular wireless charger that won't break the bank. The device will charge your iPhone at regular speed, and LED lights will tell you when your handset is ready. It's a pad, so you won't be able to prop up your iPhone while you're charging.
Ikea's Riggad work lamp is one of the coolest wireless chargers available. At first blush, the device looks like it's just a work lamp with a light bulb that will light up your desk. However, its stand doubles as a wireless charger. The lamp is a bit on the expensive side, though.
It might not make Apple happy, but if you're in the market for a solid wireless charger, this Samsung option could be a good fit. The Qi Certified Fast Charge works with both Samsung and Apple devices, and promises to charge a handset's battery capacity to 100 percent in just 50 minutes. That's 1.4 times faster than standard pads, according to Samsung.
