By the most recent reports, Apple’s first-party AirPower wireless charging mat is due to launch in September of this year. That’s about a full year since the charging accessory was first teased in 2017, and it’s still quite a long time from now.
In the meantime, you probably want to take advantage of your iPhone’s wireless charging capabilities.
Luckily, there are a slew of wireless charging solutions on the market today.
To help narrow down your choices, we’ve curated a list of the highest-rated or most unique wireless chargers currently available.
Until the AirPower charging mat is officially launched, the Belkin Boost Up might be the closest thing we have to a first-party Apple charger. It’s one of a select few accessories that Apple sells on its own website — so you know it’s approved by the people at Cupertino.
While the Boost Up was even designed in partnership with Apple for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X, it’s also compatible with any Qi-enabled Android device. It sports foreign object detection for safety, fast charging speeds up to 10 watts, and a non-slip surface so your device is secure while it’s charging. All in all, it’s a solid and safe choice if you’re in the market for a wireless charger.Get It Here
The standout feature of Apple’s AirPower charging mat is its ability to juice up multiple devices at once, including an iPhone, an Apple Watch, and a next-generation AirPods case that has yet to be released. But you can get that same functionality without waiting with this slick 3-in-1 charger by iPM.
This ultra-slim and clean charging pad can charge two smartphones and an Apple Watch simultaneously, helping you cut down on cable clutter around your desk or nightstand. Best of all, it’s also quite a bit cheaper than the rumored price point of Apple’s own charging solution.Get It Here
Wireless chargers are great and convenient, but most of the options are pretty stationary. That’s not the case with the Mophie Powerstation Wireless. This clever device is essentially an external battery pack that can also charge up your iPhone wirelessly.
First off, it’s a 10,000mAh battery. That means you’ll always have plenty of power. But instead of fussing with cables, you just lay your device on top of the battery pack and it’ll begin charging via Qi. It can also double as a charging pad on the fly, as you’ll be able to charge the battery and your iPhone simultaneously.Get It Here
Whether the plan calls for a road trip or simply a long commute, iOttie has you covered. The company has long been known for its quality car mounts. But with the Easy One Touch Qi, it’s incorporated the convenience of wireless charging into a car mount.
Its universal design ensures compatibility with the majority of iPhone or Android devices, and its one-touch locking mechanism means it’s easy to get a smartphone into and out of the mount. It’s also incredibly adjustable, meaning you can place your phone exactly how you like it.Get It Here
If you’re looking for a wireless charging solution that’s a bit more unique, look no further than this offering by FurniQi. It’s essentially a table that can charge up your smartphone — without any wires or conspicuous charging pads required.
Made from eco-friendly and attractive bamboo, the FurniQi works basically how you’d expect. Lay your iPhone or Qi-enabled smartphone down on one of the subtly engraved charging spaces and your device will begin charging up. No more forgetting to plug your iPhone in or place it on a charging pad.Get It Here
Face-up on a surface isn’t the most usable position your smartphone could be in. That’s why charging stands, like this highly rated option by Seneo, are amazing for productivity and multitasking — or just keeping an eye on your smartphone while it’s powered up.
This is a high-efficiency charger with a slew of safety features built in, and it’s designed to be compatible with a wide range of smartphones (even with a case on). Of course, it’s great for hands-free calling and Group Time. But it also means you can easily unlock your iPhone X with a glance.Get It Here
If you’re looking for a high-quality and highly rated wireless charging solution at an affordable price point, Anker’s charging pad is a great choice. The brand is well-known for its quality products — ranging from Lightning cables to battery packs.
This 10-watt charging pad sports a Fast Charge Mode that can deliver energy to a device up to 2 times faster (if supported). It also features a suite of battery safety features and thoughtful additions like LED charge indicators and a non-slip design.Get It Here
