Wireless phone chargers make charging any Qi-certified phones faster, safer and much more convenient. These pads make charging your phone as fast and as simple as setting it down on the table, while also eliminating the need for plugging, unplugging and the unnerving tangling of cords.
Ideal for smaller spaces, these wireless chargers are not only conveniently sized and look more appealing than traditional chargers, but they also have anti-slip rubber pads to ensure they stay in one place.
What To Consider Before Buying A Wireless Charger
- How many Qi devices do you have? Some chargers are designed only for one charge at a time, while others can handle two. We’ve also included a docking station that acts as a 4-in-1 charger.
- Where will you be using the charger? We’ve included models that send their LED lights to ‘sleep mode’ after a few seconds, making them ideal for use in bedrooms. We’ve also included a car charger for those on the go.
- What kind of case do you have on your phone or AirPods? Some units we’ve included can be used without removing the cases, while others work faster with no case.
