Looking for the best wireless chargers around? Cause that’s what we’ll be looking at today. Wireless charging is a great way to make your life easier by getting rid of cables – almost. Not to mention that it eliminates port degradation. After all, with wireless charging, you don’t need to plug-in and out cables all the time for charging.
With all of that being said, it’s no surprise that wireless charging is slowly, but surely becoming the new standard. So, here are some of the best wireless chargers that you can grab right now!
1: Yootech Pad
Starting at 13 bucks with more than 6,000 positive reviews, the Yootech is definitely one of the best wireless chargers that you can get right now. It’s affordable, gets the job done, and also Qi certified.
It can charge iPhones at 7.5 watts and Qi certified Android devices at 10 watts. That’s assuming, of course, that your phone is compatible. The LED light also comes in handy so that you’ll know if your phone is charging or not and when it’s charged.
While the description mentions that the charger stays adequately cooled, not a whole lot of information has been provided about it. So, take that with a grain of salt.
As for cases, it can charge your device with a case on, but only if it’s less than 4mm in terms of thickness. And even in that case, taking off the case is recommended for the best results.
Overall, it’s a solid choice for those who want to get into the world of wireless charging without spending too much.
The only small downside is that it doesn’t come with a charging adapter and that fast charging is pretty much non-existent. But, at this price point, we really can’t complain. Not to mention that you most likely already have a charging adapter. And even if you don’t, or if you want an extra one, most chargers are extremely cheap.
The Anker PowerWave is another great wireless charger. If there is one advantage that it has over the other wireless chargers, then that would be its ability to charge through the thickest of cases.
The official description mentions that about 5mm of thickness is the limit. However, most people haven’t complained about anything like that.
If there’s one problem that people had with this is charging near magnets or with cases that contained any kind of magnet. Still, as far as we know, that’s a common issue with any wireless charger out there. They generally don’t play well with any kind of metallic objects. The charger does have foreign object detection, but that’s about it. You’re better off keeping any other foreign objects away from it.
As is the standard with affordable wireless chargers, this one doesn’t come with a charging adapter either. We suppose that you can use your phone’s charger. But, if you want to play it safe, or if you need it as a secondary option, you can always grab the version that comes withthe charging adapter as well. Just do keep in mind that it costs almost 50 bucks.
If you’re constantly on the road, then carrying around the average wireless charger will definitely be somewhat painful, to say the least. So, if you want the wireless charging experience while also traveling, do seriously consider picking up Mophie’s travel kit.
It’s one of the best wireless chargers when it comes to traveling, if not the best. After all, it offers pretty much everything you’ll need in one package.
- Carrying bag
- Charging adapter
- Car adapter
- And of course, the charging pad
The only downsides that it has is that it doesn’t charge as fast as the other chargers that we’ve seen till now. Other than that, the charging pad is also a bit too small, but that’s to be expected from a wireless charger that’s meant to be used for traveling.
One more downside is that it doesn’t play too well with phone cases. Anything more than 3mm of thickness will likely set you back. Or at least that’s according to Mophie.
Still, when everything is said and done, despite its numerous downsides, this still is the best wireless charger for those who are constantly traveling.
If you own a Samsung device from the S or the Note series, then Samsung’s wireless charger is definitely one of the best chargers that you can pick up at the moment.
It’s not that it won’t work with other phones. Any Qi-certified device should work with it. But, Samsung mentions that only the S and the Note series support wireless fast charging with it.
Now, we don’t know how much of this is true. But, still, we are only going to recommend it to those of you who own a Samsung device – just to be on the safe side.
As for features, it comes with everything that you would expect a wireless charger to have at this price point. LED indicators, support for wireless charging even through cases, a charging adapter, etc.
The price is definitely a bit high when the charger is not on sale. But, we’re talking about Samsung here. They’ve been making some very high-quality products for years now. However, do be very careful of counterfeits. If the seller has lots of negative reviews, then it’s probably for the best if you stay away from him/her.
5: One of the Best Wireless Chargers on a Budget: Seneo
Seneo is without a doubt one of the best wireless chargers that you can get, regardless of if you’re a budget or not. Still, at less than 10 bucks, it’s one of the most affordable chargers out there at the moment.
Of course, at that price point, you can’t expect it to come with a charging adapter. However, the fact that it can offer anywhere from 5 to 10 watts of charging without asking for more than $10, is pretty darn amazing.
Furthermore, Seneo also claims that it can charge your phone even if you’re using a case with 5mm of thickness. Is that the highest that we’ve seen so far or what? Though, do keep in mind that 4mm is recommended for the best results.
Overall, no matter how you look at it, Seneo’s wireless charging pad is a great choice regardless of if you’re on a budget or not. So, do check it out!
