Imag­ine: you do not need to con­nect the cable from the plug-in unit to your gad­get every time, care­ful­ly aim­ing at the tiny con­nec­tor. As a result, you do NOT loosen the sock­et, and around it, micro­scop­ic scratch­es and scuffs do NOT appear on the case. Yes, if you have ever used it, you def­i­nite­ly know how con­ve­nient it is. A smart­phone or oth­er gad­get is charged with­out con­nect­ing a cable: you just leave the device on a kind of stand. Would you like such a super thing? Our rank­ing of the best wire­less charg­ers will help you make the right choice among the huge range of mod­els on the mar­ket.

Benefits of wireless charging

With wire­less charg­ing, you sim­ply place your smart­phone on a ded­i­cat­ed pad. If at this moment some­one calls you, just pick up the phone, talk and return the phone to its place. There is no need to dis­con­nect and con­nect the cable. Wire­less head­phones and smart watch­es are charged in the same way. The main thing is to make sure before buy­ing a device whether your smart­phone or oth­er gad­get sup­ports wire­less charg­ing.

In this top, we eval­u­at­ed wire­less charg­ers in terms of their pow­er, func­tion­al­i­ty, cool­ing sys­tem per­for­mance, ease of use, pack­ag­ing, and the over­all ratio between price and qual­i­ty. Func­tion­al­i­ty here means the pres­ence of the Quick / Fast Charge option (quick charg­ing) and oth­er fea­tures. Cool­ing is pas­sive and active, but we eval­u­at­ed its oth­er aspects: effi­cien­cy and noise­less­ness. And the score for the pack­age was set depend­ing on the pres­ence of a stan­dard adapter and a cable to a wire­less charg­er.

Xiaomi ZMI WTX10 — affordable wireless charging

Inex­pen­sive charg­er of a well-known Chi­nese brand. It costs about 1200 rubles, although it is assem­bled very high qual­i­ty. The case is made of alu­minum alloy, and on the front part there is durable glass. On the side there is a con­nec­tor for con­nect­ing a USB Type‑C cable (includ­ed).

Charg­ing is made in the form of a thin “tablet” with a diam­e­ter of about 9 cm and a thick­ness of only 7 mm. The out­put pow­er is 9 W, it is enough to pow­er any smart­phones that sup­port the Qi stan­dard. One of the inter­est­ing fea­tures of Xiao­mi ZMI WTX10 is the fast charg­ing func­tion.

This mod­el pro­vides pro­tec­tion against over­heat­ing, short cir­cuit and over­volt­age. If you put any met­al object (scis­sors, paper clips, etc.) on the stand, the charg­er will not turn on. In oth­er words, it auto­mat­i­cal­ly rec­og­nizes when a smart­phone, watch or oth­er gad­get that sup­ports wire­less charg­ing is placed on the pad. There is an indi­ca­tor on the Xiao­mi ZMI WTX10 case. When it lights up red, it means that the gad­get was placed uneven­ly on the site and its posi­tion needs to be cor­rect­ed.

Google Pixel Stand is a functional gadget with a stylish design

Pix­el Stand is an expen­sive but func­tion­al wire­less charg­ing sta­tion for smart­phones. The high price is off­set by wide fea­tures, such as full voice con­trol or con­nec­tion to the Google Home sys­tem. In order for wire­less charg­ing to become part of a smart home, you need to install the appli­ca­tion of the same name on your smart­phone. This gives you access to var­i­ous fea­tures when the phone is placed on the stand, such as:

  • the video inter­com call is dis­played,
  • when charg­ing, the phone shows a pho­to from the album,
  • sta­tion con­nects to smart speak­ers.

The charg­er looks quite styl­ish, it is made in white. The base has non-slip pads, and the phone is placed on an inclined stand. It also has some inter­est­ing fea­tures, such as set­ting up a light alarm to help you wake up calm­ly with­out loud annoy­ing sounds.

Skyway Energy Fast — “wooden” wireless charging

The lat­est wire­less charg­er in our rank­ing has an orig­i­nal design, but fits into any inte­ri­or. Its body is made in the form of a stand, on which the phone is placed at a cer­tain angle. The device works with all smart­phones that sup­port the Qi stan­dard.

The max­i­mum out­put pow­er of Sky­way Ener­gy Fast is 10W. There is a Qual­comm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charg­ing func­tion. Dur­ing oper­a­tion, the charg­ing heats up slight­ly, although there is no active cool­ing. This is an advan­tage, since noth­ing makes noise and does not cre­ate dis­com­fort, for exam­ple, when you sleep.

The body mate­r­i­al of the Sky­way Ener­gy Fast is styl­ized as wood, which looks very con­cise and mod­ern. Pho­to: skyway-tm.ru

The results of the rating of wireless chargers

In this com­par­i­son table, we not only col­lect­ed all the rat­ings of the wire­less charg­ers includ­ed in the rat­ing, but also ranked them in ascend­ing order of the aver­age score:

Mod­el Pow­er Func­tion­al­i­ty Cool­ing Equip­ment Design and con­ve­nience Price qual­i­ty Aver­age score
Sam­sung EP-P1100 eight 7 7 eight 7 6 7.1
Xiao­mi Mi Wire­less Charg­ing Pad eight 7 6 eight eight 7 7.3
Sky­way Ener­gy Fast eight 7 7 eight 9 6 7.5
Huawei CP61 ten 7 6 eight 7 7 7.5
Xiao­mi ZMI WTX10 7 7 eight ten 7 9 eight
Sam­sung EP-P6300 eight eight eight ten ten 7 8.5
Google Pix­el Stand eight ten eight ten ten eight 9

The lead­ing places are right­ful­ly occu­pied by the Sam­sung EP-P6300 and Google Pix­el Stand, as these wire­less charg­ers are the most advanced and func­tion­al of all. Both have only one draw­back — the high price. How­ev­er, it is off­set by oth­er ben­e­fits. If you just need a good wire­less charg­er for one smart­phone and with­out addi­tion­al fea­tures, you can safe­ly buy Xiao­mi ZMI WTX10 or, hav­ing over­paid a lit­tle, take Huawei CP61 with a record max­i­mum pow­er.

All con­sid­ered wire­less charg­ers work sta­bly with­out caus­ing prob­lems for smart­phone users. On sale you can find more bud­get ana­logues, but sav­ings often go side­ways. Such a device may not have pro­tec­tion against over­heat­ing or short cir­cuit, or it will work on any met­al object that acci­den­tal­ly hits the sur­face. In addi­tion, cheap Chi­nese gad­gets rarely give out the declared volt­age, which is why the charg­ing process takes a very long time.
