Wireless charging has become pretty popular in the past few years. Largely thanks to companies like Apple, Samsung and Google adopting it with their high-end smartphones. OnePlus also jumped on board last year with the OnePlus 8 Pro.

However, there are many wireless chargers out there, how do we know which ones are the best. And which ones are the ones to definitely buy? Well, we have rounded up a list of those that are the very best. And this list ranges from chargers that are pretty inexpensive, to some pretty pricey ones. So there’s something for everyone.

Top 10 Best Wireless Chargers

Not all wireless chargers are the same. That is mostly due to the fact that OEMs are using different speeds for their wireless charging capability. Like OnePlus is doing 30W, but only with its own wireless charger. So you’re really going to want to read up on each of these wireless chargers before buying the one that you think is best for you.

If you are looking for a slightly cheaper wireless charging stand, then the Spigen SteadiBoost Flex Convertible Fast Wireless Charger is a really good choice. Though it can also be converted into a charging pad, which is really nice too. So you can use it as a stand or a pad. Which explains why it is still $35. But that is half the price of the OnePlus charger.

This wireless charger is able to charge at up to 15W. But you will likely only be able to max out at 10W on most smartphones. That’s still faster than the usual 5W that most chargers do.

The Anker PowerWave Pad 10W is a pretty simple wireless charger. Which is why it makes the list for the best wireless chargers. It’s not a flashy charger, and it is priced pretty efficiently at just $12. Now it’s important to note that at this price, it does not come with a wall charger. So you’ll want to make sure that you have a wall charger that is USB-A and is at least at Quick Charge 3.0 speeds, to get the full 10W here. 

As mentioned in the name, the Anker PowerWave Pad 10W is capable of up to 10W. And you should be able to get 10W speed most newer smartphones. Just put your phone down and you’ll be good to go. That’s what makes this a really great charger to put on a bedside table.

Now this wireless charging stand from Nulaxy is actually a really cool looking one. You can adjust the angle of this one too. It’s going to look really good on a desk, as you can still see your notifications. Even if your phone is still charging.

Unfortunately, the Nulaxy Adjustable Aluminum Wireless Charging Stand only does up to 7.5W (the fastest speed that iPhones can handle). Which means most Android phones will be stuck at 5W, though most Samsung smartphones can do 7.5W too. That is really slow, and may not be worth it to some people. But if you are just charging your phone at night, then it’s going to be slow enough that it doesn’t overcharge and keeps your battery from aging too quickly. And also make sure it is fully charged when you wake up.

OnePlus Warp Charge 30W Wireless Charger

This is by far the best of the wireless chargers available for the OnePlus 8 Pro. For one, it is developed by OnePlus, so it is made specifically for the OnePlus 8 Pro. But it is also one of only two chargers that support 30W fast wireless charging on the OnePlus 8 Pro. Which is very important.

The OnePlus Warp Charge 30W Wireless Charger is a charging stand, that actually has a fan built-in, which will get rid of the heat that the charger is going to generate. At 30W, it is able to wirelessly charge your OnePlus 8 Pro completely in just over an hour – we’re talking about 62 minutes from our usage. That is pretty insane, for a 4510mAh capacity battery.

It doesn’t come cheap, but if you want fast wireless charging, this is the one to get.

You might be wondering why there is a battery pack on this list. Well, that’s because this battery pack has wireless charging. Meaning that you can place your OnePlus 8 Pro onto this battery pack and it’ll start charging. However, one of the downsides to battery pack wireless charging is the fact that it is going to be slow, and use up a lot of juice from the battery pack.

So the second reason why this is on the list, is because it does USB-C PD. This is the safest version of fast charging, which makes it a really great purchase. As you can opt to do a bit slower wireless charging that is more convenient. Or plug your phone in and get some fast charging going at up to 18W. All newer smartphones do support 18W charging too.

Samsung Wireless Charger Trio

The Samsung Wireless Charger Trio is a really unique wireless charger, as you are able to charge three devices simultaneously. That also explains why it is much more expensive than almost every other charger on this list.

Allowing you to charge two phones and a smartwatch. Or maybe a phone, earbuds and a smartwatch. Or really any combination of that. Since most truly wireless earbuds do also support wireless charging these days. Making things really convenient for everyone.

Belkin Wireless Charging Speaker

Now this wireless charger is a really unique one. The Belkin Wireless Charging Speaker is exactly what the name entails. It’s a wireless charger, that also has a Bluetooth speaker built-in. This makes for a really great charger to put next to your bed, and play some music to go to sleep each night. It also looks really clean.

This is a 10W wireless charger, so it’s not the fastest out there, but it’s good for charging overnight.

Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand

If you’d prefer a faster wireless charger over one that can charge multiple devices simultaneously. Then this is the one to get.

The Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand is a great looking stand too. It can charge most smartphones at up to 15W. There are only a couple that do not support 15W, like the OnePlus 8 Pro – which is 10W, if you don’t use the Warp Charge 30 Wireless stand. Which again, it’s not the fastest, at 15W. But still plenty fast enough for most people.

Google Pixel Stand

Due to the price on the Google Pixel Stand, we really only recommend this or those that have a Pixel smartphone. It does fast charging at up to 12W, which is the fastest that any Pixel smartphone can handle. And while it does work with other smartphones, the magic comes from using it with a Pixel.

The Google Pixel Stand can do some really cool tricks. Like show your favorite pictures on your phone while it’s charging. Show you notifications and such too. And there’s much more.
