To find the best wireless charger for your smartphone, we tested different models from a wide range of companies.
Plugging in a power cable to charge a mobile device? How 20th century of you! These days, thanks to the power of electromagnetism, all of the cool kids are charging their gadgets wirelessly: Drop your smartphone on top of a wireless charger and it’ll instantly start powering up—no cables required.
To find the best wireless chargers, we spent over 40 hours testing 14 of them, using them to charge an iPhone XS and Samsung Note 8 smartphone. Our top pick for the best wireless charging stand is the Yootech X2 , a simple, low-cost charger that offers speedy, flexible charging. If you’re looking for a low-profile charging pad at a reasonable price, the RAVPower RP-PC066 Fast Wireless Charger (available at Amazon) is a great choice.
