17 Best Wireless Chargers for iPhone and Android | Man of Many

There are two main fields of wireless charging that your phone will fall into: either Qi or MagSafe charging. These charging systems are built into your phone and make them compatible for wireless charging. Qi is offered with most phones and is supported by Apple and Samsung. MagSafe is a new Apple innovation, making it exclusive to Apple devices. If you’re using an Apple device from the iPhone 12 model onwards, you’ll most likely fall into the MagSafe category. Let’s get more specific with each type of wireless charger.

What to Look for When Buying a Wireless Charger

Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is the charging technology offered by most phones. Built into the phone itself, Qi wireless chargers are more energy-efficient than standard charging methods. The Qi technology is also smaller, making for more compact chargers. While otherwise a perfectly simple and effective way of wirelessly charging your devices, Qi charging has the minor downside of having to be placed a specific way on a charging station. Any misplacement or minor movement will cancel out the wireless charging.


MagSafe is Apple’s evolution of the Qi technology, originally debuting with their iPhone 12. What makes MagSafe different is the ring of magnets inside the phone and the compatible charging station, locking the two devices together in the necessary position to charge. Along with solving the Qi chargers one fault, the MagSafe chargers are also more powerful than Qi chargers, for faster charging. Conveniently, an iPhone with MagSafe technology can still be charged on Qi wireless charger, and vice versa. It will take longer to charge a MagSafe phone on a Qi charger, and Qi phones will charge at the same rate.


1. Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad

Best Wireless Chargers for iPhone and Android

1. Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad

Kicking off our list if the best wireless chargers for iPhone and Android is the Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad. As the name suggests, you can fit three devices on this charging station at once, being your iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple AirPods (not the Pro model). This makes it more ideal for Apple users, but by using Qi technology, the charging station doesn’t exclude Android users.

2. Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand

If you want a wireless charger that doubles as a great watching-YouTube-in-bed stand, look no further than the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand. Again, using Qi technology this wireless charger is compatible with Apple and Android devices. Phones can be charged in landscape and portrait orientation, and with its 1.2m cord you should have no trouble positioning this by your desk or bedside table.

3. Apple MagSafe Charger

The first of our Apple MagSafe compatible chargers is, the Apple MagSafe Charger. With its simple, no fuss, minimalist design, you’ll have no trouble figuring out how to charge/position your phone. And if you do, the magnets will align your phone to the correct orientation anyway. Simple and effective.

4. Choetech Dual Wireless Charger

The Choetech Dual Wireless Charger is ideal for those living with others. The dual wireless chargers allow for two phones (or two earphone cases, or a mix of both) to be charged at the same time. This means no more ‘I only have 20% charge’ fighting between friends and family for the wireless charger. The wireless charger is also compatible with both Apple and Android phones and earphones.

5. ESR Ultra-slim

Again, as the name suggests, the ESR Ultra-slim is far from thick. Being only 5.5mm thick, the ESR Ultra-slim is ultra-easy to take with you on the move. Overheating from such a small wireless charger is combated by a rubberised surface and zinc frame. If you find yourself moving a lot, or want something compact for your side table, the ESR Ultra-slim is the wireless charger for you.

6. Nanami Fast Wireless Charger

The Nanami Fast Wireless Charger is exactly what they say on the box, a fast wireless charger. Charging at 10 watts for Android devices (and 7.5 watts for iPhones) this wireless charger supports Android’s fast-charging system. While not as compact/minimalist as the Belkin Boost Up stand, this Nanami stand has all the same perks, charging phones in both portrait and landscape positions.

7. Logitech Powered 3-in-1 Dock

The Logitech Powered 3-in-1 Dock is the second charging dock on our list of the best wireless chargers for iPhone and Android devices. This dock can charge three devices at once, in this case a smart watch, phone, and earphone case. Being compatible with both Apple and Android devices, this is a great wireless charging dock for anyone wanting to centralise their device charging and minimise their power point cluster.

8. Anker PowerWave 15 Charger

Moving away from their wireless charging stands, the Anker PowerWave 15 Charger is instead a high powered charging pad. The 15 stands for 15 watts of charge, which cuts down on charging time for your devices. This does however, work better for Android devices, as iPhones aren’t confirmed to charge above 10 watts. The otherwise sleek design makes this a great purchase for any wireless-charging phone user.

9. Belkin 3-in-1

This Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger is perhaps the most compact wireless charger of the 3-in-1 range. Having the earphone charging space within the wrist band of the smart watch charging space makes the most from the least amount of space. This system, however, has been optimised for Apple products. While it will still work with Qi-enabled devices, you may have a hard time fitting them in the Apple-inspired charging docks.

10. Moshi Porto Q

For Moshi Porto Q is the first portable wireless charger on our list of the best wireless chargers for Apple and Android devices. As a portable charger, the Moshi Porto Q removes the need for wires or a power source to charge your device, making it a truly wireless charging experience. The charger can hold up to 5,000 mAh of power, lasting for at least two full phone charges (depending on your phone). For a wireless charger that looks and functions beyond expectations, get yourself a Moshi Porto Q.

11. Aukey 10W Wireless Charger

The Aukey 10W Wireless Charger is great for those who don’t want to fuss around with fiddley phone placement. The Aukey 10W Wireless Charger removes this finicky guess work of Qi charging that we mentioned earlier, with three charging coils within the pad for charging no matter where you place your device. This way, you can place your phone down and get on with your work, fiddle-free.

12. Yootech Wireless Charger

The Yootech Wireless Charger is another effective and affordable wireless charging dock. Phones can be charged in portrait or landscape orientation, and the LED light used to signify charging can be turned off if the dock is used on your bedside table. What makes this wireless charger a real bang for your buck is its lifetime money back/replacement warranty, which basically guarantees you a wireless charger for life.

13. Mophie Dual Wireless Charging Pad

The Mophie Dual Wireless Charging Pad is a great space-saving, wireless charging pad. With two spaces on the pad for Qi charging, a third device can be charged from a USB-A charging port on the back of the pad. While not directly part of the wireless charging pad, this still means that three devices can be charged at once using the Mophie Duel Wireless Charging Pad.

14. Native Union Dock

For a stylish and functional design, get yourself a Native Union Dock Wireless Charger. Its minimal, circular stand design makes this wireless charging dock look great with or without a phone, with six different colours to match or stand out from its surroundings. With Qi technology, this wireless charger is compatible with both Apple and Samsung phones.

15. Otterbox Otterspot Wireless Charger

The TCL Unveils Monster 98-inch QLED TV…For $8,000 is another great wireless charging system to share with others. Acting almost like coasters, a set of three charger pads can be stacked and stored together on the charging dock to charge any wirelessly compatible phones or earphones. Or, these three charging pads can be passed out, for portable, wireless charging. These pads can be charged away from the base, making them great for portable charging on the go.

16. Apple MagSafe Duo

The second Apple made wireless charger on our list, the Apple MacBook Pro 2020 Specs Reportedly Leaked is almost a wireless portable charger. While the wireless charging pad is small, foldable, and extremely portable, you’ll still have to supply a power source to charge your two devices. The MagSafe technology will lock your two devices in place, for a simple wireless charging experience.

17. Google Pixel Stand

Rounding out our list of the 17 best wireless chargers for Apple and Android devices is the FaZe Censor’s, AKA Doug Martin’s, Gaming Set-Up & Gear. If you have a Google Pixel, this stand will transform your phone into a whole new device, more akin to the Google Home Pods. You can use Google Assistant hands free, use your phone as a digital picture frame, and can be linked with other devices such as security systems for front door camera viewing. While this wireless charging dock will work with all Qi compatible devices, you’ll get the most from it with a Google Pixel phone.
