Top 10 Wireless Chargers for iPhone in 2021


Wireless chargers have evolved as a convenient, stress-free, and fun way to charge your devices. And thankfully, iPhones have graciously enveloped the technology; in fact, almost every iPhone, including the budgeted ones, supports it.

Another great benefit of its popularity is that we’ve got a wide variety of wireless charging options. Whether a stand, pad, tray, single, multi-device, there are endless possibilities. However, this also creates confusion; which wireless charger is best for your iPhone?

No worries, dear iPhone owner, I have you covered. Over the years, I have tested and explored a fair share of wireless chargers, and here are my top 10 picks just for you.

Things to note while buying a wireless charger

  • Power outage: Does it offer 5W, 10W, or 15W wireless charging? Notably, the W is directly proportional to the speed of induction, i.e., speed of charging. So, the higher it is, the better. However, all Qi-compatible iPhones accept only up to 7.5W (except iPhone 12 series, it can support higher W but only with MagSafe chargers)
  • Compatibility: There are multiple Qi-compatible devices out there, from smartphones, earbuds, to gaming controllers. And even if you don’t own those devices right now, you may be buying them sooner or later. So, it’s wiser to invest in a charger with broad compatibility.
  • Device protection: Overheating, surplus charging, irregular outage, etc., can be very harmful to the health of your device and battery. Thus checking the security certificates is a must.

A cleverly designed wireless charger that can wear many hats. BoostCharge offers fast charging whether the iPhone is placed vertically or horizontally.

Plus, its stable form factor makes it a handy stand for resting the device or consuming content hands-free. And thanks to its compact size and minimal finish, it matches perfectly with a work desk, bedside table, and more.

Another thoughtful addition is the LED light that is visible no matter the phone’s orientation. It will shine amber light if a foreign object is detected and white when the phone is aligned correctly.

MagSafe Charger – Best-suited for iPhone 12 series

MagSafe Charger - Best-suited for iPhone 12 series

Apple managed to stir the wireless charging market by introducing MagSafe. Its ability to stick and auto-align with your device is magnificent. Plus, it lends up to 15W fast charging speed for the first time in an iPhone.

However, these superpowers are limited to the iPhone 12 series. For older devices, it acts as a basic Qi-compatible charger and quite a good one at that. The compact size ensures that you can carry it everywhere you go.

And most importantly, it wears the badge of being an Apple product, which means great quality and secure, efficient charging.

Everything from its sophisticated textured look to its multi-device management, Air Omni is well thought of the product. It smartly integrates both wireless and wired charging, allowing you to juice up to six devices simultaneously.

I particularly love the Lightning to Type-C toggle. With just one tap, you can switch the connectors and dock the device of your choice, from iPhone to the Nintendo Switch console.

Along with an Apple-Certified Watch Module, USB-A, and USB-C sockets, it also offers two designated wireless charging areas for Qi-compatible smartphones and earbuds. On top of it all, it even boasts a small secret drawer complete with its very own LED!
