Please note that at least for the time being, wireless phone chargers trade speed for convenience. Most of the available offerings on the market today can't match the speed of the wall chargers that come bundled with today's high-end phones.

If you're an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X user, look for a wireless charger that supports the Apple-specific 7.5W power output. It'll allow you to charge your device considerably faster than a conventional wireless charging pad.

A wireless charger will work with most smartphone cases. However, if the case for your phone has a metal back or a metal insert for a magnetic car mount, you might not be able to use it with a wireless charger.

1 Anker PowerWave Fast Wireless Phone Charger

Anker's latest PowerWave fast wireless charger is one of the best options in its price range. It supports fast charging for Android smartphones, as well as the Apple iPhone family (via the recently introduced 7.5W output standard). 

The hardware features of the accessory include a built-in cooling fan and a discreet charging indicator. Anker ships the PowerWave charger with a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0-compatible wall adapter. We only wish the accessory used a USB-C connector instead of microUSB.

The device has a maximum power output of 10W, so it can rapidly charge compatible smartphones. It doesn't support Apple's 7.5W standard, so it won't charge an iPhone as fast as some of its pricier competitors. Aukey backs the charger with an excellent two-year warranty. 

5 RAVPower Wireless Charging Battery Pack

What sets this wireless charger by RAVPower apart from any other option on this list is its built-in 10,400 mAh battery pack, which will fully charge most smartphones today at least three times.

In order to protect your phone from scratches, the metal-clad accessory has a neat acrylic cover at its center. In order to charge your phone rapidly, you need to connect the wireless charger to a Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0-compatible adapter or the Fast Charge adapters that come bundled with high-end Samsung phones.
