One of the best changes sweeping through flagship smartphones in the last couple of years has been the advent of wireless charging, letting you juice up your phone without needing to plug it in. If you've got a phone with wireless charging, then we've collected all the best wireless chargers together in one place just for you.
Like most other wireless charging phones, the Samsung Galaxy series, Huawei Mate and P Series and latest iPhone models use the standard Qi charging technology supported by all the chargers on this page. We've opted for chargers able to charge your phone at 7.5 or 10W - be warned that cheaper 5W chargers will charge your phone more slowly.
Sadly, though Apple announced its own AirPower wireless charging mat, it has now been declared as dead on arrival, so won't be making this list. Find out more here: Apple AirPower is dead
Our guide to the best wireless chargers available today
Anker PowerWave Stand
Anker is a company well known for creating great quality accessories for affordable prices, and the latest PowerWave products are a brilliant example of that. The new Anker Powerwave 7.5 Stand is capable of delivering 5W, 7.5W and 10W wireless charging, so if you have an iPhone XS you'll get the fastest charge available. Similarly, you'll get 10W fast charging on the Galaxy S9 or S9+. What's more, it has cooling to keep itself cool, enabling it to deliver its peak charging speeds for longer.
Belkin BoostUp 10W Charging Stand
Available in black and white, Belkin's 10W charging stand is actually the charger we use every day with our iPhone X - it's a reliable charger with a long 1.5-metre lead that stretches across a desk easily. Not to your taste? Check out Belkin's more standard-looking wireless charging pad below. There's a three-year warranty, too.
Moshi Otto Q
Moshi's charging pad supports up to 10W wireless charging and even can detect foreign metal objects placed on the pad (like keys) for added safety. We like it because of its slightly more lifestyle design as well, it's definitely one of the more living room-friendly pads. It's also lightweight at 181g so is ideal for business travel - some of the other pads are significantly heavier than that.
Greenwich Humber Wireless Desk Charger
Designed in the UK, this slim charger is available direct from Greenwich and will make a stylish addition to your desk. The cover is crafted from high-quality German bull hide leather with a brushed gunmetal aluminium surround. The tech side of things has been handled by popular accessory designer Proporta, the company also behind Ted Baker tech gear.
Aircharge Dual Fast Wireless Charger
This double-charger isn't the best-looking device but it is very practical, delivering up to 20W fast charging to two Qi devices at once. It's also extremely portable at 130g, so could easily be used for travel. The charger also has several protections against common issues such as overheating or foreign objects, while it can also charge through phone cases up to 5mm.
This innovative charger is inside a picture frame. It's actually a rather cool way to have a wireless charger somewhere accessible within your home. The 5x7-inch frame is made from New Zealand pine and comes in white or black. Naturally, it's Qi compatible and works up to 10W, while it will also work with cases up to 3mm thick and 6.5-inches tall. There's a status light on the back of the frame. A clever idea indeed.
Moshi Symbus Q Compact USB-C dock
Taking the premise of the Otto Q a stage further, the Symbus Q boasts 10W wireless charging on top but changes things up significantly with a USB-C cable enabling a single connection to a Mac or PC for display (there's HDMI), network and USB - there's two USB-A ports on the front. Sadly there's no extra USB-C port, but otherwise, this is a super choice as an all-purpose desk dock.
Anker PowerWave Pad
The PowerWave 7.5W Pad shares all the same features of the Stand, except, rather than an angled stand, this is a circular pad that you lie your phone down on. The entire surface is coated in a fairly grippy finish to ensure that even glossy phones won't slide off. It has the same power delivery and cooling to keep it charging quickly.
Twelve South HiRise Wireless
This is one of the more premium chargers on our list, and its build quality oozes solidity and class. The materials are great and its 10W charging is nice and fast even through cases. Plus, you can actually pop out the charging disc from the stand so that if you want to charge wirelessly while travelling you can take it with you.
If you want a classy stand-style charger for your desk or bedside table, this Twelve South charger is about as good as they get - it's what we use by our own bed.
Mophie Wireless Charging Base
Mophie is the undisputed champion of battery covers, and it's now launched a wireless charging base, imaginatively called the Mophie Wireless Charging Base. It's a compact round device with non-slip rubber finish to ensure your shiny phone doesn't just slide off into oblivion whenever you place it down on the charger.
Belkin BoostUp - 7.5W or 10W
The Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad is round and flat, with a grippy rubber ring in the centre, again to ensure you slippery glass phone doesn't fall off. It can also charge through cases up to 3mm thick, and supports 7.5W faster charging for devices that support it. There's also a newer version of this pad for 10W charging.
The designers of AirUnleashed have produced a mat that looks similar to Apple's doomed AirPower mat but there is a difference. While AirPower was intended to be a mat you could charge devices on wherever you placed them, AirUnleashed has specific places for each device. The mat will charge all variants of Apple Watch, AirPods 2 with the wireless charging case and any Qi-compliant phone. It's 7.5W rated for the iPhone.
