Best Anker / RAVPower / Aukey / Mophie / Belkin Wireless Chargers

There are many ways to charge our smartphones now, we’ve got the most common type of charging electronic and that would be the USB wall charger as most of us use it. Then there are portable chargers, and car chargers, too. Portable chargers are definitely a game changer if you’ve ever used them as you don’t have to worry about staying in a single place waiting for your smartphone to charge. That said, there’s something common among all those charging electronics that we just mentioned and that would be the fact that they all require a charging cable to be used with the device that you’re charging.

That’s where Qi wireless chargers come in. Wireless charging is a cool way to charge your smartphone because you don’t have to use a charging cable to connect to your smartphone and charge it. Instead, you just lay your smartphone on top of the charger and it starts charging a Qi-Compatible smartphone. The only charging cable that’s used in this case would be the cable that’s powering the wireless charger and that’s connected to a wall charger.

Since wireless charging has grown quite a lot over the years, there have been many brands on the market joined in on creating their own wireless chargers. In this guide, we’re going to be covering the best wireless chargers among the brands: Anker, RAVPower, Aukey, Mophie, and Belkin. All of those brands have wireless chargers that have proven to be pretty good with their build, charging power and the design that they have.

Belkin BoostUP Fast Wireless Charging Pad

The first wireless charger that we have to recommend comes from, Belkin. Belkin is a brand that creates quite a few charging electronics and if there’s one thing that’s most apparent with their products it would have to be the fact that many of their charging electronics are dedicated to Apple products. In this case, this Belkin BoostUP wireless charging pad of theirs is a lot more reliable for those that own an iPhone X and iPhone 8.

The reason that this wireless charger is more reliable is that it features fast wireless charging for the iPhone X and the iPhone 8. That means that this Belkin wireless charger is capable of outputting 7.5W for both of those smartphones and that’s the reason that we’re placing it into this guide. There aren’t too many wireless chargers on the market that are specifically made for fast wireless charging the iPhone X and iPhone 8.

Of course, you can still charge any Qi wireless charging compatible smartphone with this charger but those phones will charge at a 5W charging speed. The form factor of this charger is quite good too, as it has a larger size and that allows you to place your smartphone on it more easily.

Anker Powerwave Fast Wireless Charging Stand

Of course, we were going to add a few Anker wireless chargers to this guide, and the first one that we wanted to add is their PowerWave Fast wireless charging stand. This charger features Fast wireless charging for Samsung Qi compatible smartphones and also for the iPhone X and the iPhone 8. Most chargers on the market just have fast wireless charging available for just a single device.

So if you get this charger, you’re able to have a wireless charger that can fast wireless charge your Samsung smartphone or if you have an iPhone X or the iPhone 8; it’s also good to have if you have friends or family that have those two types of devices, too.

Along with the powerful charging, this charger also has stand form factor that makes it easier to charge your smartphone and use it at the same time. Another thing is that this PowerWave charger has a fan on the inside and this keeps the charger cool when you’re fast wireless charging your smartphone.

Mophie 7.5W Apple Optimized Wireless Charge Pad

Mophie is another brand on the market that is quite similar to Belkin. In this case, this Mophie charger is also made mostly for the iPhone X and the iPhone 8, as the charger is able to supply a fast wireless charging speed of 7.5W to either of those phones. As for charging other Qi compatible smartphones, you can, but those smartphones will charge at a 5W charging speed.

Something that we found strange when we did a review for this wireless charger is that it uses a DC charging cable, while most wireless chargers on the market use a Micro-USB charging cable. Not really a negative, but it’s just a heads up to let you know that this charger does not take a Micro-USB cable. Along with the powerful charging and use of an uncommon powering cable, you get Mophie’s great build quality like it’s almost as if it’s straight from Apple.

RAVPower Fast Wireless Charger 7.5W for iPhone X / iPhone 8 and 10W

Coming from another top brand on the market when it comes to charging electronics as a whole and a brand that we think that stands up there with Anker, this is RAVPower’s Fast wireless charging stand. The first thing that you’ll notice about this charger is just how well-built and thick it looks and that’s because it really is well-built. The charger has a rubber ring at the top and bottom to make sure that your smartphone and charger itself don’t slide around.

On the charging side, this RAVPower charger features fast wireless charging for the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and for Samsung Qi compatible smartphones. This means that the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 is able to charge at a 7.5W charging rate and Samsung smartphones are able to charge at 10W. For all other Qi compatible smartphones, they will charge at a 5W charging speed. So if you don’t have a fast wireless charging smartphone then it’s best to go for a standard wireless charger.

The charger also has a LED light that has 3 different settings. If it’s a solid Orange color then that means that your smartphone is charging. The other color is Red, and if it’s a flickering Red color then that means there’s something other than a Qi-compatible smartphone on top of it. If it’s a solid Red then the charger is on standby and it turns off after 10 seconds.

One last wireless charger comes from Aukey, and this charger definitely has a unique design with its use of a cloth top which is something that very few other wireless chargers have.
