The best wireless charger you can buy in 2019 is going to be a Qi charger. It’s the de facto standard that can wirelessly charge the iPhone, Samsung phones, Pixel 3 and every major smartphone that supports wireless charging. That part is easy.

Much harder is the question: What is the best wireless charger?  We’ve tested a the top wireless chargers on the market to give you the pros and cons of each, along with our personal recommendations, to give you that answer.

As anyone who’s bought a Qi-charging-capable phone can attest, you don’t just get a first-party charger in the box – you’ll have to venture out and buy one yourself. Aside from Samsung, none of the major phonemakers even produce their own.

Our list is full of names you’ll recognize: Belkin, Anker, Mophie, and others – along with some you might not. They won’t juice up your devices as fast as wired chargers, but they’re handy when you don’t want to keep plugging your phone in and out.

We’ve tested the wire-free chargers with a variety of phones, and smartwatches like the Apple Watch, and other rechargeable devices if they also charge those. We also note charging rates, in wattage, which might charge some devices faster (depending on their maximum wireless charging rating, of course). 

Lastly, make sure your phone can actually use wireless charging, as some older handsets – especially those with metal backs – likely don’t. Without further ado, here is our ever-growing list of the best wireless chargers we’ve seen.
