These are the Best Qi Wireless Chargers in 2021

Wireless chargers are very convenient to charge your phone without fiddling with a cable. They’re not the fastest way to charge, not the most efficient, but they get the job done. As the smartphone and accessory market has largely adopted the Qi wireless charging standard, it has also become easier to buy a wireless charger these days. You don’t have to worry about a particular charger not being supported by your phone. As long as both your phone and the charger are Qi-compatible and aren’t locked into some proprietary standard, you’re good to go.

The choices for wireless chargers have grown multi-fold with the increase in the number of phones that support wireless charging. If you go looking for a wireless charger online, you’ll find that there are hundreds of options. This may make people feel a little overwhelmed. So we’re here to help. We’ve compiled some of the best Qi wireless chargers you can buy today. While all of these chargers will work with Qi-compatible smartphones, some may charge a particular brand’s phones faster.


    Universal fast charging

    The Anker PowerWave 15 Pad comes with 5W, 7.5W, and 15W wireless charging modes. If your phone supports faster wireless charging, this Anker charger will be able to provide it. However, it doesn’t come with a power adapter.

    For Pixel users

    While the Google Pixel Stand supports all Qi compatible phones, it works best with the Pixel. It's able to charge Pixel 3 and 3 XL at 10W, and Pixel 4 and 4 XL at 11W. It also comes with a power adapter in the box. Moreover, it turns your Pixel phone into a toned-down smart display when connected.

    Style and substance

    Unlike most wireless chargers, the Moshi Lounge Q sports a premium textured finish for an elegant look. Like the Anker PowerWave 15, the Lounge Q also supports up to 15W charging. However, it doesn’t come with a power adapter.

    Charge your phone and earbuds

    If you own an accessory like wireless earbuds that supports wireless charging, you can charge both your phone and the accessory simultaneously on this iOttie charger. It offers up to 15W charging to the phone and 5W to the accessory.

    For three devices

    When single and dual chargers aren’t enough, you can get this Belkin 3-in-1 charger. It can charge your Qi-compatible phone, earbuds, and smartwatch at the same time. The charger supports up to 7.5W charging for the phones and 5W for other devices.

    Fast charge your iPhone 12

    The Apple MagSafe Charger can charge your iPhone 12 series phone up to 15W, something that you won’t find in any other wireless chargers except the Apple-certified ones. Unfortunately, you'll need to buy a 20W USB Type-C adapter separately.

    A convertible

    Prefer the stand mode on some days, and the flat mode on the others? The Spigen Wireless Charger can do both for you. It also supports up to 15W fast wireless charging. Moreover, there's a non-slip pad on it to prevent your phone from slipping while charging.

    High-end looks

    Don't want just another boring-looking wireless charger? The Anker PowerWave Sense Pad Alloy combines elegance and simplicity with an aluminum base and a fabric top. It also supports fast charging up to 15W and comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter in the box.

    Power bank with Qi charging

    For the times when you aren’t able to find any empty power outlets, this power bank and wireless charger combo from Energizer can be very useful. It packs a 10,000mAh capacity battery and supports up to 10W fast charging. You won’t get a power adapter with this as well.

    For the Apple ecosystem

    This 'made for MagSafe' charger from Belkin can charge both your iPhone 12 series and the AirPods at the same time. As the phone is held by the magnets on the charger, any non-MagSafe iPhones won’t just stick. Belkin also bundles a power adapter with it.

    One charger, two devices

    This Samsung charger particularly makes sense for the Galaxy Watch users. It include two charging slots; however, one of them is exclusive to Galaxy Watches. The other slot can be used for a smartphone or even the wireless earbuds. The charger supports up to 9W of wireless charging.

    Perfect for couples

    If you have to charge two phones simultaneously, Anker’s PowerWave 10 Dual Pad is a good option. It supports up to 10W wireless charging and comes with a power adapter.

    3-in-1 goodness

    Why hunt for power outlets when your wireless charger includes two extra USB ports? This Seenda charger allows you to charge one device wirelessly and two with wired connections. What’s more, you get a Quick Charge power adapter.

    The budget pick

    If you're tight on the budget, the Anker PowerWave Stand is a decent wireless charger. It's capable of providing up to 10W wireless charging. You won’t get a power adapter in the box though.

    Style and function

    The Native Union Drop Marquetry is a stylish wireless charger that comes in nine designs and color options. It uses Italian leather or silicone treads for a premium finish. The charger also supports up to 10W fast wireless charging for Android devices, whereas iPhones will get charged at 7.5W.

    The affordable pick

    The AmazonBasics wireless charging stand is one of the cheapest wireless chargers on the market that supports up to 10W Qi charging. Unfortunately, you don’t get a bundled AC adapter with the charger, so you will have to use an 18W adapter for the best results. In addition, there are two charging coils in the charger.

    Fast wireless charging

    This Belkin BoostCharge pad is an excellent option if you are just looking to charge one device. It supports up to 10W charging and comes with an anti-slip pad to keep the phone in place. In addition, the charger comes with a two-year warranty.

    With power adapter

    The Samsung Fast Charge Pad comes with its own power adapter, so you don’t have to look for a compatible wall charger. In addition, it features a premium finish and can deliver up to 9W of wireless charging on Qi-compatible devices.

These are some of the best Qi chargers on the market. If you’re looking for a good universal fast wireless charger, the Anker PowerWave 15 Pad, Spigen Wireless Charger, and Moshi Lounge Q are great options. iPhone 12 series buyers can consider the official Apple Magsafe Charger or Belkin Magsafe 2-in-1. Native Union Drop Marquetry is another decent option for iPhone users if you want a premium look. For non-iPhone users, the Anker PowerWave Stand remains an excellent budget option.
