How to choose any wireless charger to buy

Wireless chargers are complex, but we are here to help

Buying the right wireless charger can be surprisingly difficult. There are many options available - some of them charge different fees, some have different form factors, and some do not include everything you need in the box.

So to help you, we've compiled a guide to what we're looking for in your next phone's wireless charger.

1 Qi charging: this may sound obvious, but there are other wireless charging standards there, so make sure that everything you pick up supports the standard Qi.

2 Power: Primary wireless charging starts at 5 watts, but most phones support some fast charging. Apple iPhones are designed to ship at a maximum of 7.5 watts while Samsung phones charge 9 watts while other Android phones support up to 10 watts. 

So, while chargers that produce less will charge your phone, they will not do so as fast. You may want to get a 10W charger to make sure you have covered no matter which phone you buy.

3 Standard connector: Most wireless charging ports are connected to a type of adapter to physically connect to the wall outlet. 

Some companies use exotic special cranes to connect towels, and others use standard plugs such as MicroUSB or USB-C. If you can, it is best to go with a standard connector, just in case of damage or loss of the cable.

4 Wall Adapter: In the same vein, check that your charging plate actually has a wall adapter. If you are expected to make your own, make sure that it can provide enough wattage to charge at full speed - a 10W panel with a 5W wall socket only charge at 5W.

5 Brand: The wireless charging board is still the charger, and when it comes to anything that goes through the power supply through your smartphone $699- $999, you'll want to be surer that something will not get fried. 

When in doubt, stick to reputable brands to ship equipment, such as Anker, RavPower, Mophie, Belkin, or Samsung, to name a few.

6 Size and esthetics: There are a variety of styles of wireless chargers, some large, some small, some flat, some charging your phone at an angle. Buying for office? You'll probably need a charger at an angle so you can see your screen (and unlock Face ID for iPhone users). 

Want one for your table? Think of a flat panel so that your entire room does not light up every time you get a text. There are also convertible chargers if you prefer flexibility.

7 Personal Style: Wireless chargers come in all kinds of exotic shapes and sizes - like this photo frame! Or this leather pad! Get something you love: You will live on your desk/desk for a while.
