Wireless charging has been around for a long time and has been compatible to use with many Android smartphones for many years. However, the iPhone only became compatible with wireless charging when the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 came out, and wireless charger sales boomed during that time.
Now, here we are with the iPhone 11, and 11 Pro Max and Apple’s newest phones are still wireless charging compatible, and the best part is that they’re fast wireless charging compatible. Fast wireless charging for iPhone means that you can charge them with a 7.5W wireless charger to charge them faster, rather than using a regular 5W charging speed.
You will need a Quick Charge Wall Charger to Fully Power these Wireless Chargers. Here are some QC wall chargers we recommend:
That said, not all wireless chargers on the market deliver 7.5W charging, as some are only able to give you 5W charging or 10W charging for Samsung smartphones. That’s why we’ve chosen some chargers that you should consider if you want to be able to fast charge your iPhone without any wires.
Anker PowerWave Fast Wireless Charging Pad
The most common type of wireless charger is charging pads. These chargers are flat and all you have to do is place your iPhone on the pad facing up and your phone will start charging.
This is Anker’s PowerWave fast wireless charging. The charger does have 7.5W fast chaging for the iPhone 11, and 11 Pro Max. On top of that, the charger also has 10W charging for Samsung phones, too. All other Qi-compatible smartphones will be charging at 5W.
The PowerWave pad uses a Micro-USB input port to be powered from, which by 2020 standards is quite dated, but at the same, it ensures that you’ll always be able to get a replacement cable for the charger. Speaking of cables, this charger comes with a Micro-USB charging cable.
The one flaw of using a charging pad is that you can’t use your phone that well because you might move it while it’s on the pad and it will stop charging. This PowerWave pad has a 3.9-inch diameter, so when you place your iPhone 11 in the center, a good portion of it will be sticking out.
The charger does have a blue LED light that turns on while you’re charging your phone.

Samsung Galaxy Smartphones: 10W

RAVPower 7.5W Wireless Charging Stand
A wireless charging stand would be the type of wireless charger that you might be more inclined to purchase and this is because your smartphone is in an upright position. So you’re able to more easily use your iPhone 11 while it’s charging.
Also, since the charging stand has two coils, you’re able to place your phone either vertically or horizontally. The charging power doesn’t change just because there are two coils, but you’re still going to be getting 7.5W of fast charging for your iPhone. There is 10W of charging for Samsung phones and 5W for other wireless charging smartphones.
The RAVPower charger does use a Micro-USB input port and it comes with a Micro-USB cable and a Quick Charge wall charger. So you’re able to fully power it right out of the box. Many wireless chargers do not include a wall charger.
There is rubber padding at the top where you place your phone to ensure that it doesn’t get scratched and your phone doesn’t slide off. There are also rubber pads at the top so the charger itself does not slide.
