Best Wireless Charger Comparison

Below is a comparison table of the wireless chargers I have tested. Given the size of the table and the available screen space, especially on mobile devices, I decided to create a more detailed PDF that you can request via email using the form below. If you prefer the on-screen option instead, you’ll have to scroll horizontally to see the full table.

Anker PowerWave 7.5

Anker PowerWave 7.5
 Highlights
  • 10W Fast Charging for Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/Note 8
  • 7.5W Fast Charging for iPhone X/8/8 Plus
  • WaveBoost improves charging speed by up to 1 hour
  • Works with cases of up to 5mm thickness
  • Supports portrait and landscape orientation
  • Quick Charge 3.0 AC Adapter included
  • 18-Months Warranty

Anker offers various wireless charging solutions, but I’m most impressed by the Anker PowerWave 7.5, which not only supports fast charging with 7.5W and 10W for iPhone and Samsung phones but thanks to its WaveBoost technology, it’s up to one hour faster than competitive solutions. WaveBoost is a solution that combines state-of-the-art cooling technology with a dedicated chipset.

The PowerWave 7.5 charging stand also impresses with a solid build quality that includes an anti-slip surface and a raised front-lip that keeps your phone securely positioned in the charger. The latter, unfortunately, makes it difficult to unlock an iPhone X when swiping up from the bottom while the phone is docked.

Asunflower Dual Wireless Charger

 Highlights
  • 7.5W Fast Charging for Samsung and iPhone
  • Can simultaneously charge an Apple Watch Series 2/3
  • Lifetime Warranty

What makes the Asunflower Dual Wireless Charger unique, is its ability to charge a compatible phone and Apple Watch Series 2/3 at the same time. That feature is one of the reasons why I carry this wireless pad in my backpack while traveling.

The Asunflower charger is the only wireless charging pad I have seen that offers a lifetime warranty, but unfortunately, it does not include an AC adapter and the maximum power output for Samsung phones is limited to 7.5W, instead of the 10W other wireless chargers support.

Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand

 Benefits
  • 10W Fast Charging for Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/Note 8
  • 7.5W Fast Charging for iPhone X/8/8 Plus
  • Charges in landscape and portrait mode
  • Foreign object detection
  • $2,500 connected equipment warranty
  • AC wall adapter and cable included
  • 2-Year warranty with a 1-year extension
  • Available in four different colors

Belkin announced its Boost UP 10W Wireless Charging Stand at CES, and it finally went on sale in May of 2018. I like the design of Belkin’s wireless charging stand because it’s different from most of its competitors. Belkin converted a charging disk into a stand, which enables you to charge your phone in either landscape or portrait mode.

As one of the most expensive chargers in the test, the Boost Up delivers fast charging of up to 10 Watts via the included wall adapter, and it features a warranty of up to three years. You get two years out of the box, but you can request a free one-year extension.

The other thing I like about the Belkin charger is that it’s available in four different colors. As of this writing, Belkin only offers black, white, and pink but a fourth color will be available in the future. Last but not least, Belkin offers a $2,500 connected equipment warranty.

That means, if your phone gets damaged while charging, Belkin reimburses you for the damage. However, if that warranty is anything like the ones offered by manufacturers of surge protectors, they’ll make you jump through hoops to file a claim. So I see the warranty more as a marketing gimmick than anything else.

Burkley Leather Fast Charger

 Pros
  • 10W Fast Charging for Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/Note 8
  • 7.5W Fast Charging for iPhone X/8/8 Plus
  • Cow leather looks beautiful
  • Hassle-free phone alignment
  • Only 9mm thin

Burkley is known for premium, yet affordable leather accessories for mobile devices. By using genuine cowhide leather, Burkley has managed to create a beautiful and decorative charging pad that stands out from the competition with its design.

Like most of the other products I have reviewed, the Burkley Leather Wireless Charger supports fast charging as long as you provide sufficient input power. Unfortunately, Burkley doesn’t include an AC wall adapter, so you have to make sure that your USB power source provides sufficient output to enable fast charging.

The Burkley charger has only a single coil, but interestingly enough, I have never had any issues with phone alignment. It seems like regardless of how I place my iPhone X on the charger, it always starts charging immediately. My wife is currently using the Burkley Fast Charger on her nightstand because she finds the design appealing and doesn’t care about propping up her iPhone overnight using a charging stand as I do.

Case-Mate Power Pad

Case-Mate Power Pad
 Benefits
  • 9W Fast Charging for Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/Note 8
  • 7.5W Fast Charging for iPhone X/8/8 Plus
  • Combination of charging stand and charging pad
  • Robust and stable charging platform
  • Includes riser for larger phones
  • Works in portrait and landscape mode
  • AC adapter included
  • Available in black and white
  • 2 Year Warranty

Case-Mate’s Power Pad is an incredibly versatile wireless charging solution that you can use either as a charging stand or a charging pad. The pad and the stand are two separate pieces, which means you can leave the stand on your desk and throw the pad into your backpack if you want to take it with you on a trip.

Case-Mate also includes an 18W adaptive quick-charge wall adapter to enable 7.5W fast charging for iPhone and 9W fast charging for compatible Samsung phones. I used to have the Power Pad on my office desk but then decided to put it on my nightstand instead. Why? For two reasons:

  1. It’s incredibly stable and reduces the risk of me knocking it over when I’m sleepy and trying to grab my phone.
  2. The way Case-Mate designed the stand makes it difficult to swipe up to unlock my iPhone X. I don’t mind that limitation when my iPhone is charging overnight because, while in bed, I always take it off the charger before unlocking it.

If you do care about swipe gestures and you’d like to use the Power Pad on your desk, you can use the included riser to work around the issue.

Choetech PowerDual 5 Coil Charger

 Highlights
  • Five coils to charge multiple devices simultaneously
  • Support for all common charging speeds (5, 7.5, and 10W)
  • Slim profile
  • USB-C port

The Choetech PowerDual charger is the only 5-coil fast charger in this review. The extra coils not only it much easier to correctly align your phone on the charging pad, but it also enables you to recharge multiple devices at the same time.

As a result, you could simultaneously charge an iPhone and an Android phone side-by-side, using different charging speeds. That’s pretty slick!

Despite a large number of coils, the Choetech pad is relatively thin, and it doesn’t take up more space than an iPhone XS. Choetech has to versions of this charging pad for sale, so that you can pick between the pad only, or the pad and a matching Qualcomm wall charger.

It’s also worth noting, that Choetech uses a more modern USB-C connector, instead of the standard micro-USB port to power its pad. Since most of my devices now feature USB-C, I appreciate that I don’t have to carry a micro-USB cable if I want to use the PowerDual pad while traveling.

Cubevit Fast Wireless Charger

 Benefits
  • 10W Fast Charging for Samsung S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/Note 8
  • 7.5W Fast charging for iPhone X/8/8 Plus
  • IPX5 Waterproof
  • 10mm thin
  • 18 Months Warranty

What makes the Cubevit Fast Wireless Charger stand out from the competition is its IPX5 waterproof rating. IPX5 means that while the device is not dust-proof, it protects the internals against water projected by a nozzle, such as a showerhead or a kitchen faucet.

However, it does not mean that you can or should submerge the charger in water. Still, the waterproof rating makes this wireless charging pad uniquely suited for use in your kitchen or bathroom.

Additionally, the Cubevit wireless charger features 10W/7.5W fast charging, but it doesn’t include the necessary Quick Charge wall adapter.

 Benefits
  • Beautifully designed and crafted
  • 5W Charging for all Qi-compatible devices
  • USB cord wraps underneath the charging pad

The wireless charging pad from Grovemade is the only unit in this review that does not support fast charging. Instead, it only offers 5W power output to all Qi-compatible smartphones. I decided to include Grove
