The best wireless chargers to buy today
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. Regardless of whether you have an iPhone, a Galaxy S9 or Sony Xperia XZ2, the new PowerWave products will deliver power as quickly as your phone is capable of receiving it. What's more, they're considerably cheaper than other iPhone fast-charging compatible products.
Anker PowerWave Stand
The new Anker Powerwave 7.5 Stand is capable of delivering 5W, 7.5W and 10W wireless charging, so if you have an iPhone X, 8 or 8 Plus, 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 a built in fan to keep itself cool, enabling it to deliver its peak charging speeds for longer. This should mean faster charging speeds than other 7.5W/10W Qi chargers.
As the name suggests, this is a stand, meaning your phone will be upright which takes all the guessing out of placing your phone down. You don't have to worry about it not lining up properly. Just put the phone centrally on the stand, and it charges. What's more, it's capable of delivering power through fairly thick cases.
As a bonus, you get a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter with it in the box, so if you want an even faster charge than the wireless base can give you, you can use that, with a compatible cable.
Anker PowerWave Pad
The PowerWave 7.5 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 deliver and fan-cooling to keep it charging quickly.
7.5W compatible wireless chargers
Mophie is the undisputed champion of battery covers, and it's now launched a wireless charging base, imaginitively called the Mophie Wireless Charging Base. It's a compact round device with non-slip rubber finish to ensure your shiny iPhone doesn't just slide off into oblivion whenever you place it down on the charger.
Price: See current price on Apple
Like Mophie, Belkin announced a new charging plate just in time for the iPhones. 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.
Apple has announced its own home-made accessory for charging its Qi-powered devices. It's called AirPower and it can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods simultaneously (providing you have the new wireless charging capable AirPods case).
But it's not our yet, though we are expecting it soon. Read more: Apple AirPower: the wireless charging mat for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods
RAVPower fast wireless charger
Like the Belkin and Mophie bases, the RAVPower wireless charging base supports Apple's 7.5W charging, and is capable of delivering up to 10W for other devices that support it. It's also a simple, flat disc-shaped device that lies flat and has an "anti-skid" silicone ring to stop devices sliding off.
Non 7.5W wireless chargers
While the following list of chargers don't come with support for the 7.5W charging for the new iPhones, they will charge at 5W, which is perfectly adequate if you tend to just leave your phone charging overnight. What's more, they're quite a lot cheaper than the optimised models.
If you're after an affordable, but good quality product, Anker is well known for producing exactly that kind of accessory. It's more well-known for cables and battery packs, but it also sells a budget friendly wireless charger. For devices that support it, the Anker base can fast-charge as well (only charges at 5W on the iPhones). Unlike most of the others, it's a rounded square design rather than a round one.
Mophie Powerstation Wireless
Unlike the other wireless chargers on the list, this Mophie Powerstation Wireless is also a back up battery pack, so you can take it with you when you travel, or lug it around in your backpack or handbag all day. When full, it's completely wireless and uses the internal battery to refuel your wireless charging iPhone. It's a 10,000mAh battery, so should be enough to give you two or three full charges before you need to plug it in again.
Anker Powertouch 10W
Anker's slightly more premium model is a little more stylish and more powerful than the plastic square model and features underlighting LEDs, rather than a strip of LEDs around the top. It's round, has a Type-C port and is compatible with fast-charging wireless phones, but only charges at 5W on the iPhones.
The pre existing Belking Qi charger is less powerful, but much cheaper than the newly announced Boost Up charger. Like most of the others on the list, you lie your phone flat, and the surface is slightly grippy in order to stop slippage.
If you're after a stand-up charger rather than a lie-down flat type, the PicTek has been very well received by consumers and costs very little. It has two Qi coils to ensure it charges consistently and quickly for phones that support fast-charging. Like the others it only charges at 5W on the iPhones.
If there was a prize for most attractive wireless charger, the Satechi one would win it. It's a gorgeous glossy flat disc with a metallic aluminium finish around the edges. It's not expensive either and will look right at home on any bedside table, and matches all the iPhone 8 finishes.
If your tastes are for something that doesn't require an extra thing sat on your desk or side table, you could just buy a table with the charger built in. FurniQi is exactly that: a small wooden side table with a built-in pad for wireless charging. Similarly, you could head into IKEA and pick up one of their many items with a similar feature.
