Newer iPhones support Qi wireless charging, but unfortunately, they don’t come with a wireless charger. Unless you’d like to wait for AirPower, your best bet is to opt for a high-quality third-party wireless charger today.
There are a plethora of wireless chargers on the market. Some of them are premium-tier, while others are cheaper but potentially fairly sketchy. Luckily, there’s an option that’s the perfect balance! Right now, you can buy one of the best wireless chargers on Amazon for about the same price as an Apple Lightning cable.
This Anker PowerPort wireless charging stand is one of the top selling Qi-compatible stations currently on Amazon. And for good reason: it sports a 4.3 star rating with nearly 1,800 reviews.
For one, the form factor is clean and unobtrusive. With an attractive, minimalist design, it won’t stick out on your office desk or bedside table.
It’s compatible with pretty much any Qi-based device, including the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS and XS Max, and the iPhone XR.
In the box, there’s the PowerPort Stand charger, a 3-foot Micro USB charging cable, and an 18-month warranty. So you’ll need to bring your own power adapter (aka, power brick).
