When it comes to sheer convenience, nothing beats having a wireless charger on hand. Today's wireless charging accessories are more versatile than ever — handy for charging smartphones and other compatible gadgets like wireless earbuds, smartwatches, and even battery packs. And their charging speeds keep getting faster and faster, too, making sacrificing charging speed for convenience a thing of the past. To determine the best wireless phone chargers worth buying, we spent weeks scrutinizing and testing products from leading accessory makers like Anker, Belkin, and mophie.

A charging stand will allow you to always keep an eye on your phone while charging it, as well as choose between placing it in landscape (great for watching video) or portrait mode. The charging pad is less versatile, more compact, and often times more affordable. Portable battery packs with Qi compatibility — today's most frequently used wireless charging standard — are also becoming increasingly common. Depending on how many gadgets you plan to charge, you can choose between a single or a dual wireless charger. When it comes to charging capacity, we suggest that you look for a fast wireless charger with a maximum power output of 10 watts and up to avoid the need of upgrading for a while. But if we're talking specifics, iPhone users should look for a wireless charger that supports the Apple-specific 7.5-watt Qi power output (at the very least.) The latest iPhone 12 product family supports even faster, 15-watt wireless charging, but you’ll have to look for a MagSafe-compatible product. The latest high-end Android phones are compatible with high-power outputs above 10 watts. A wireless charger will work with most smartphone cases unless your phone has a metal back or, on certain occasions, a metal insert for a magnetic car mount. Still, if you like to protect your phone with super-rugged covers, be sure to check if they are compatible with Qi chargers. Before you make the investment, take note if the wireless phone charger you're interested in comes with a power adapter. Many budget-friendly offerings don’t, so unless you already have one, you might have to spend an additional $15-20.
