16 Best Wireless Chargers for iPhone and Android


The best wireless chargers for your smartphone will improve how you charge with fast charging, and MagSafe options are now leading the way. We love wirel6. Apple MagSafe Chargeress chargers because they’re so easy to use: simply place your compatible phone down on the pad or let the magnets guide you with MagSafe on your iPhone. These chargers don’t discriminate because we’ve selected options that will work for both Apple iPhone users with MagSafe and Android users. Let’s dive right into our list!

Best Wireless Chargers at a Glance

Highlights from our list include the following options:

Now that we’ve looked at our favourites let’s check out the complete list.

Belkin 3 in 1

1. Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand

Price: from AU$229.95

  • Pros: Qi2-certified with 15W charging speeds. Gorgeous design with great build quality and sturdiness built into the base.
  • Cons: It takes up more space than its competitors because of the wide stand and side-by-side charging layout.

You’re about to see a host of new Qi2 wireless chargers pop up on the market, and we had to start our testing with the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand (AU$229.95). This has long been one of the most popular options on the market, and this updated model features Qi2 15W wireless charging for your iPhone with MagSafe alongside 5W charging for your AirPods and Apple Watch.

This new charging software helps alignment when you’re placing the phone on the charging pads, and while we never had any issue using stands like the Twelve South HiRise, also listed below, it’s a peace of mind addition that we appreciate. The latest iPhone 15 models are all Qi2-certified devices, so this is the best option if you have just upgraded your phone and want to get the most out of it.

Beyond the functions, we also think it looks great, and you’d happily place this on your desk in the home office or your bedside table. The soft rubber base is sturdy, and we had no issue removing the phone from the stand after it was finished charging.

Overall, the build quality feels fantastic, but not any better or worse than the Twelve South HiRise 3 Deluxe. It’s worth noting that the overall footprint of the BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 is emphasised because of the side-by-side layout, meaning it does take up more space, so keep that in mind.

Compatibility: Apple iPhone
Charging power: 1x 15W, 2x 5W

2. iOttie iON Wireless Duo

Price: from AU$150

  • Pros: An affordable option that works for Android and Apple iPhone devices and ticks all the boxes with 10W charging, LED indicator lights, and a 5W charger for accessories such as AirPods, Galaxy Buds, etc.
  • Cons: Not the best option for Apple users as it doesn’t use MagSafe and only charges two devices at once.

One of the best all-round wireless chargers for both Android and Apple devices is the iON Wireless Duo from iOttie. This is a stand-and-pad dual charger with 15W fast wireless charging for Qi-enabled smartphones and a smaller 5W charger for accessories such as Apple AirPods or Samsung Buds.

The design is fairly industrial, but its functional and sturdy thanks to the flat rectangular base that doesn’t move around. You also have a good selection of shades in either light grey or dark grey fabric.

It’s also a handy charging station for use with Apple’s new ‘StandBy Mode’ thanks to two Qi coils for viewing in both portrait and landscape mode at a 65-degree tilt. Maybe the only downside to this charger is the distinct lack of Apple Watch charging, but in saying that, there’s a better option for Apple users below to charge three devices at once.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices
Charging power: 2x 10W

Belkin 2 in 1
Belkin BoostCharge Pro 2-in-1 Magnetic Pad Qi2 | Image: Man of Many

3. Belkin BoostCharge Pro 2-in-1 Magnetic Pad

Price: from AU$149.95

  • Pros: Great build quality, and it comes with a Qi2-certified charger at 15W for your iPhone in a lie-flat design. It’s also slim, minimalist, and great for your desk when you don’t want to take up valuable vertical space. We put our under our monitor.
  • Cons: Being a lie-flat unit, you won’t be able to use ‘Standby’ mode for the iPhone with this one.

If you want to charge two devices simultaneously at your desk, check out the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 2-in-1 Magnetic Charging Pad. This is a simple device that needs few introductions with a 15W Qi2-certified MagSafe charging pad on the left side for your iPhone and a second 5W pad for your AirPods. We also love the addition of a sneaky 5W USB-C port on the side for an additional device – we typically charge our wireless mouse using this port at our desk.

Like most Belkin products we’ve tested, the construction quality is excellent. The magnet holds our iPhone 15 Pro Max in place perfectly, and there’s an LED indicator light to let you know it’s turned on and charging.

Unlike several charging stations on our list, Belkin includes an AC adaptor in the box that makes the higher price more manageable.

Compatibility: Apple iPhone
Charging power: 2x 15W

Twelve south hirise 3 deluxe
Twelve South HiRise 3 Deluxe | Image: Ben McKimm / Man of Many

4. Twelve South HiRise 3 Deluxe

Price: from AU$229.95

  • Pros: Thanks to a stacked design, this is a more compact alternative to the Belkin 3-in-1 unit with a smaller footprint. It also comes with powerful 15W charging for 3 devices and tilt adjustment for watching videos while you’re sitting at your desk or lying in bed.
  • Cons: It’s not powered by a USB-C adaptor but rather a non-universal plug. This makes hiding the cable or running it along a cable channel under your desk quite annoying.

The best alternative to the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand, Twelve South’s HiRise 3 Deluxe is the iPhone stand that does it all in a compact form factor. Introduced around the launch of the new iPhone 15 line-up, we love this wireless charger because it charges three devices at once (with an included international 40W adaptor) and doesn’t take up too much space on your bedside table. Like most other wireless charging stands, the vertical mount can rotate and tilt (35 degrees) to get the perfect viewing angle for your phone when watching movies or using ‘StandBy’ mode.

It’s more powerful than the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand, feeding 15W of power to your phone AND your watch instead of just 5W. And it even has a third 7.5W pad at the base for your AirPods or a second phone. Maybe the only knock is that the main charging pad isn’t Qi2-certified, but it is sold through Apple.

The overall build quality and design are also top-notch. Made from aluminium, it doesn’t flex through the vertical mount, and the magnet that holds your phone in place is strong without being too strong.

Compatibility: Apple iPhone
Charging power: 2x 15W, 1x 7.5W

Belkin boostcharge dual wireless charging pads

5. Belkin BoostCharge Dual Wireless Charging Pads

Price: from AU$119.95

  • Pros: The best all-round option for those who want a lie-flat wireless charger, this new unit now offers 2x 15w fast charging.
  • Cons: The phone sits flat on the charger, which means you can’t use ‘StandBy Mode’ if you’re on an iPhone.

Another great option for Android and Apple users is this dual wireless charging station from Belkin. The latest update adds 2x15W chargers (the max your phone can charge wirelessly) and it keeps the grippy non-slip design so it doesn’t slide around. Finally, it’s so sleek and minimalist you’ll hardly notice it, which makes it perfect for common areas around your house and your bedside table or nightstand. If you want a more aesthetically pleasing charger, check out the Oakywood Dual Slim Charging Pad below.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices (plastic cases up to 3mm thick)
Charging power: 2x 15W

6. Apple MagSafe Charger

Price: from AU$65

  • Pros: This is the most compact charger on our list and is perfect for wirelessly charging while holding the phone in your hand.
  • Cons: It won’t stop your phone from moving around while charging unless physically mounted to a surface. This is also a high price to pay for a 15w charging puck.

The Apple MagSafe Charger is a simple wireless charger that you can hold in your hand or place on your bedside table for charging overnight. As is the case with all MagSafe chargers, you’ll have no trouble figuring out how to charge and position your phone, as the magnets will align your phone to the correct orientation. Sometimes, a simple, functional, and straightforward design is all you need or want.

Compatibility: Apple devices with MagSafe, not recommended for Android
Charging power: 15W

Twelve south powerpic mod wireless charger best wireless chargers
Twelve South PowerPic Mod Wireless Charger | Image: Twelve South

7. Twelve South PowerPic Mod Wireless Charger

Price: from AU$99.95

  • Pros: Offers a picture frame function that lets you customise with a 4×6 photo.
  • Cons: It only uses a basic 10w charger, which is slower than other cheaper options on our list. You’re paying for the picture-frame function.

A great alternative to the Apple MagSafe options listed above is this wireless phone charger from Twelve South that includes a lucite-framed mod customisable with any 4×6 photo or room-matching graphic – think photo frame with in-built charger. It’s a great option for the design-conscious buyer who doesn’t want obvious pieces of technology in their living room. In terms of functions, you’ll find a basic 10w charger, and you can choose orientations for your phone, either in landscape or portrait format.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices MagSafe and non-MagSafe (cases up to 3mm thick)
Charging power: 10W

Nomad stand one best wireless charging stations 2
NOMAD Stand One | Image: NOMAD

8. NOMAD Stand One

Price: from AU$169.95

  • Pros: With 15W fast wireless charging and a cool floating design, this is a great option for iPhones with MagSafe support. It also weighs a lot, so it doesn’t lift off the table when you go to pull your phone off.
  • Cons: You’re paying a lot of money for a one-trick pony. It doesn’t come with a power adaptor!

If you’re looking for a compact wireless charging station that looks great and performs well, check out the Stand One from NOMAD. One of our all-time favourite brands for Apple accessories, the Stand One delivers official MFi MagSafe fast charging up to 15W and is powered by an integrated 2.0m USB-C cable. Annoyingly, it doesn’t come with a power adaptor, and you’ll have to purchase a 20W USB-C unit separately from Apple or a third-party retailer. When you’re tight for space, this is your best bet.

Journey rapid trio
Journey Rapid TRIO | Image: Journey

9. Journey Rapid TRIO

Price: from AU$159.95

  • Pros: Great value-for-money alternative to the expensive Belkin options towards the top of our list. It offers 3-in-1 charging capabilities and its easy to find in retail stores and online across Australia.
  • Cons: We don’t like how it looks, especially when you compare it to the Belkin and Twelve South options on our list. It doesn’t offer 15W charging speeds, which most competitors do now.

One of the best value-for-money options on our list, the Journey Rapid TRIO can be found at retailers in Australia such as JB HI-FI and online through the company’s website. This is a great charging dock that works with Apple’s new StandBy Mode and has the power to charge your Apple iPhone, Airpods, and Watch all at once. Our favourite part about this device is the detachable USB-C Apple Watch charger that can be unplugged from the stand and plugged into a compatible USB-C charging brick when you’re travelling.

Compatibility: Apple devices (MagSafe-only)
Charging power: 10W

Courant catch3 classic
Courant CATCH:3 Classic | Image: Courant

10. Courant CATCH:3 Classic

Price: from AU$260 (US$175)

  • Pros: When you add a charger to your favourite valet tray, you end up with this device. Nice touch with the extra USB ports and premium leather construction.
  • Cons: It’s a lot of money to pay for good looks and convenience. Simply put, there are better, faster chargers out there.

The Courant CATCH:3 Classic is perfect for those who love their everyday carry items. It makes space for a dedicated charging section with 10w of Qi fast wireless charging and an accessories storage compartment where you can place your watch, rings, keys, and any other everyday carry pieces you might have lying around. Made from premium pebble-grain Italian leather and matte aluminium alloy, its weighted, non-slip construction looks great, and it has all the functions we look for, including an additional USB-A output and the ability to charge through plastic cases up to 3mm thick. The only thing it’s missing is a space to charge your Apple Watch.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices (non-metal cases)
Charging power: 10W

Belkin boostcharge pro 3 in 1 wireless charging pad best wireless chargers
Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad | Image: Ben McKimm / Man of Many

11. Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad

Price: from AU$229.95

  • Pros: This is a great option for charging your Apple products at your desk.
  • Cons: Only makes sense for people with an Apple Watch. If you don’t have one, opt for the new Qi2 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Pad that we’ve listed above.

When you thought two were impressive, Belkin has taken it an extra step with a new magnetic fast-charging pad that can charge three devices simultaneously. One of the newer devices we’ve tested, this is a great option for Apple users with MagSafe technology that can charge your AirPods and Apple Watch alongside your iPhone. With fast wireless charging, it can elevate your battery from 0% to 80% in about an hour. We also love the modern, minimalist design with indicator lights for all devices to tell you they’re properly placed and charging. If you’re after something that can roll up for travelling, we recommend the mophie 3-in-1 Travel Charger with MagSafe we’ve also listed below.

Compatibility: Apple devices with MagSafe, not recommended for Android
Charging power: 15W

Product image of mophie 3-in-1 Travel Charger with MagSafe with plain white background
mophie 3-in-1 Travel Charger with MagSafe | Image: Apple

12. mophie 3-in-1 Travel Charger with MagSafe

Price: from AU$199.95

  • Pros: Handy for travel with an ultra-thin design. It also charges at a fast rate of 15W, so you can get a good charge while you’re working in a hotel room for a few hours.
  • Cons: Designed for travel, we found it too flimsy for everyday use. Leave this one inside the bag until you go travelling again.

Similar to the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 pad but designed for travel, this is a great choice if you spend more time in hotel rooms than the office. You’ll appreciate the 15w charging rate, and it’s designed for your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch and packs into a convenient carrying case for travel. It even comes with a USB-C cable and wall adapter for plugging in at your final destination. Thanks to the vertical watch mount, it’s a great way to take advantage of Nightstand Mode.

Compatibility: Apple devices with MagSafe
Charging power: 15w

Belkin boostcharge wireless charging stand

13. Belkin BoostCharge Wireless Charging Stand

Price: from AU$89.95

  • Pros: Works for Android and iPhone users in both landscape and portrait orientations. Also provides good charging speeds at up to 15W.
  • Cons: Despite the price similarity, it doesn’t offer the picture-frame capability like the Twelve South PowerPic Mod.

This is our best alternative to the Twelve South PowerPic Mod with a pared-back design that functions the same without the picture frame-style images. Once again, this is a great option for taking advantage of iOS17’s new ‘StandBy Mode’, and it’s just as useful for watching Netflix and YouTube in bed. In terms of power, you’ll find reliable Qi technology that’s compatible with Android and Apple devices and up to 15w of power for fast wireless charging. Sadly, there’s no wireless bud or watch charging here as the stand is designed to work with smartphones exclusively in landscape and portrait orientation.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices (plastic cases up to 3mm thick)
Charging power: 15W

Product image of NOMAD Base Station wireless charger with plain white background
NOMAD Base Station | Image: NOMAD

14. NOMAD Base Station

Price: from AU$169.95

  • Pros: Good option for those with older Apple iPhones that don’t have MagSafe.
  • Cons: Older, slower charging speed of 10W.

Designed to charge your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch on one pad, this is the best wireless charger on our list for those with older iPhones that don’t support MagSafe. It’s efficient with 2x 10w charging coils and the padded leather base is uber-premium in both feel and look. It’s worth noting here that the Apple Watch mount is an optional extra (US$11) but you can also add a USB-C and USB-A powered device to the rear of the charger thanks to these additional ports.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices
Charging power: 2x 10w

Oakywood 2 in 1 headphones stand
Oakywood 2-in-1 Headphones Stand | Image: Oakywood

15. Oakywood 2-in-1 Headphones Stand

Price: from AU$165

  • Pros: The best way to store your over-ear headphones and charge your smartphone at the same time. Great design that matches other Oakywood products.
  • Cons: Complimentary to other chargers by this brand, not a great stand-alone unit with sub-par charging rates and higher price-point.

When you want somewhere to hang your AirPods Max (or any over-ear headphones) and charge your smartphone at the same time, we recommend this option from Oakywood. There’s only a handful of stands like this one on the market, such as this option from Satechi and this gamer-focused option from Razer, but this is our favourite all-rounder. The wide handle allows you to safely hang any headphones while the wooden base offers charging for your phone. More of a complimentary option to other options on our list, we wouldn’t recommend this as your only stand-alone solution.

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices (non-metal cases up to 4mm thick)

Kew labs uts 1
Kew Labs UTS-1 | Image: Kew Labs

16. Kew Labs UTS-1

Price: from US$169.95

  • Pros: Invisible design that keeps the top side of your desk cable-free.
  • Cons: This product can be hard to find in Australia and if you want to purchase one through a third-party supplier, it can be very expensive.

The wireless charger in the Kew Labs UTS-1 is strong enough to reach through desks 10 mm-17 mm thick and charge your phone invisibly. This is a great option for those with too much clutter on their desk because while most wireless chargers have a sleek design that makes a nice addition to a surface, Kew Labs have hidden the charger, making it entirely cable-free on the surface. Unlike the built-in option from Zens, you don’t have to cut a hole in your desk to make it work. Simply peel back the adhesive tape and stick it to the underside of your desk; you can even daisy chain multiple chargers together. Finally, we were really impressed by the magnetic hold it generated through our desk, even though you can’t see it!

Compatibility: Apple and Android devices
Charging power: 2x 10w

Alternative Wireless Chargers That Didn’t Make This List

These are the devices we also tested that didn’t make the final cut:

  • Satechi Duo Wireless Charger Power Stand (from US$99.99): The Satechi Duo Stand is a portable power bank (10,000mAH capacity) that has a built-in, flip-up, wireless charger which is perfect for travelling. This lets you take advantage of ‘StandBy Mode’ on your iPhone, and it works just as well with Android devices in a vertical orientation. We also love that you can charge up to three devices simultaneously, and it’s great for those who are always on the move as it takes up very little space in your luggage. Satechi has also incorporated safety features, such as foreign object detection (FOD) and protection against overheating.
  • STM Goods ChargeTree Go (from AU$149.95): The best option on our list for travelling is the STM Goods ChargeTree Go. This charging station can replenish three devices at once, but it also folds flat so as not to take up too much space in your bag when you’re on the go. The space-saving tech continues with a spring-loaded, retractable Apple Watch charger on the side of the device. Power is supplied via a 20w USB-C charger sold separately and connects via a USB-C to USB-C cable inside the box.
  • Belkin BoostCharge Wireless Charging Stand (from AU$59.95): Sometimes, you just want a simple vertical and horizontal charging stand for your smartphone, and that’s where the Belkin BoostCharge Wireless Charging Stand comes in. This is as simple as charging stands get: you don’t need a MagSafe-compatible phone, and the charger works with all new Qi-enabled smartphone devices, not just iPhones. Power is only 10w vs. 15-20w available on most chargers on our list, but there’s no arguing with the simplicity of the design and the overall good build quality that’s typical of Belkin products. Once again, you’ll need to supply your AC adaptor.
  • Satechi Aluminum 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Stand (from AU$99.99): Another great option for the design-conscience buyer is this wireless charging station from Satechi. It sits towards the bottom of our list because the 7.5w of supplied power is half that of the above competitors. That being said, the lower AirPods charger is solid with 5w of power. Overall, it’s a good-looking and well-made unit with a combination of solid plastics, weights, and aluminium on the stem.
  • iOttie iON Wireless Mini (from US$44.95): Don’t have much space to work with? Looking for something small and portable to take with you on business trips? The iON Wireless Mini Fast Charging Pad may be the one for you. The compact size of this wireless charger doesn’t mean it lacks power – it boasts the power of Qi wireless fast-charging technology, so you can charge your phone without the need for additional cables. Featuring an anti-slip silicone ring, effortlessly charge your device with one compact, sleek device.
  • Google Pixel Stand (2nd Gen) (from AU$120): Whether you’re a pixel owner or not (extra points if you’re), this stand is a great option for your bedside table as it doesn’t have any visible LEDs. Furthermore, it reserves special features for Google Pixel owners, transforming 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 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.
  • Anker PowerWave 2 Stand (from AU$99.95): We rate the Anker PowerWave 2 Stand for its versatility – compatible with virtually all Qi-enabled devices, including iPhone 11, 11 Pro, Xs, Xs Max, XR, X, 8, Galaxy S10 S9 S8, Note 10 Note 9 and more. It uses smart technology to automatically switch between 5w, 7.5w, 10w, and 15w charging modes depending on your device’s power needs—ensuring optimised wireless charging. The PowerWave II Stand is by far one of the best charging pads out there.
  • Native Union Drop XL Wireless Charger (from AU$160): Charge all your devices (up to three at once) with the Native Union Drop XL Wireless Charger thanks to an expanded wireless surface and an extra USB-A port. Grounded in a thoughtful design crafted with a weighted aluminium base and non-slip silicone tread, your changing pads look good, and your device stays in place. What we love most about this charging pad is its foreign object detection and thermal protection capabilities, which ensure safe charging and that no rogue items get placed on the prized charging pad! It is also available with an Apple Watch Charger.
  • Zens Liberty Wireless Charger Glass (from AU$200): If money’s no object, the Zens Liberty is the best wireless charger we’ve tested. It uses 16 charging coils, so you never have to worry about placement again, and you can charge three devices simultaneously and combine it with the Apple Watch USB stick to recharge your watch in sleep mode. Above all else, it looks epic, but if you find it a little too heavy and bulky, a new built-in version is available in black and white for mounting directly onto your desk or benchtop.

Why You Should Trust Our List

Having covered the best in technology across Man of Many for multiple years, including testing nearly every major wireless charger on the market, author Ben McKimm has selected a list of his favourite chargers. Unlike so many lists we read online, our selection has been carefully curated to include options for both Apple iPhone users with MagSafe and Android users who also want the benefits of using these chargers.

Things You Should Consider Before Purchase

1. The Type of Charger You Need

Your phone will fall into two main fields of wireless charging: Qi or MagSafe charging. Qi is offered with most phones and is supported by all major phone brands, including Apple. That being said, if you’re an iPhone user, we recommend choosing a MagSafe charger, as these are universal and can be used across various chargers. Here’s everything you need to know:

Qi (pronounced ‘chee’): This is the charging technology most phones offer. 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 in a specific way on a charging station. Any misplacement or minor movement will cancel out the wireless charging.

MagSafe: This 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 often more powerful. Conveniently, an iPhone with MagSafe technology can still be charged on a Qi wireless charger and vice versa.

2. The Power of the Charger

Always consider the wattage (which is the strength of the charging power) when choosing your charging pad. The higher the wattage, the quicker your devices will charge. If you value quick and efficient charging, then ensure you get a charging pad with 10w power or higher.

3. Where You’re Going to Use the Charger

Most chargers mentioned have a sleek and minimalist design, some are small while others are large. Consider your set-up and whether the charger you choose will integrate nicely into your workspace or home. If you don’t want your charger to stand out or be visible, consider getting one that is small or can go underneath a desk. If you want your wireless charger to become a design element, consider choosing one with a unique design look.

Updates to This Article

These are the changes we’ve made to this article over time as new products are released:

  • UPDATE 03/05/2024: We added Belkins’ new Qi2-enabled wireless charging options for iPhone and future Qi2-enabled smartphones (rumours are that this tech is coming to Android). This includes the BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand and BoostCharge Pro 2-in-1 Magnetic Pad, which offer 15W of charging speed for your iPhone. Auxiliary ports and pads offer 5W of charge in these applications. After purchasing one, we also added original imagery we shot in-house for these products and the Twelve South HiRise 3 Deluxe. We removed the OtterBox 2-in-1 Charging Stand with MagSafe and Zens Liberty Wireless Charger Glass from the top of the list.
  • UPDATE 30/10/2023: You’ll need a charging station if you want to get the most out of your iPhone and the new StandBy Mode introduced as part of the iOS17 update. Maybe you’re just looking for a place to leave your phone while you sit at the table in the morning and eat your cereal. We’ve updated our list with everything from 3-in-1 devices that can charge your Apple Airpods, Watch and iPhone together to sleek MagSafe chargers that won’t detract from your room’s interior design.

Answering Your FAQs

Will a wireless charger damage my phone’s battery?

No, if the heat is contained and doesn’t exceed safe limits, it poses no direct threat to your phone’s battery.

Will a cable charge my phone faster?

Generally speaking, cables will charge your phone faster than a wireless charger.

Does my phone case work with a wireless charger?

It depends on the wireless charger, however, most charging pads can be used through cases up to three millimetres thick. It’s best to avoid aluminium cases.

How do I know if my phone works with a wireless charger?

Check the wireless chargers list of compatible devices. Also, check your phone’s user manual in the ‘battery’ section. If wireless charging is mentioned or has instructions on how to use Qi charging, then your phone supports it.
