The OnePlus 9 Pro boasts the ability to wireless charge at up to 50W without turning into a miniature inferno, and both the regular OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro support Extended Power Profile (EPP) wireless charging. This means that even if you don't want to pony up for OnePlus's fancy new charger, there are plenty of great wireless chargers for you to choose from. EPP is a feature you still have to hunt a little to find, so we've rounded up the best OnePlus 9 wireless chargers for your conveinence.

Warp Charge only matters for the OnePlus 9 Pro

I'd love to say that everyone should buy that sick OnePlus Warp Charge 50 Wireless Charger, especially now that this year's model has a detachable power supply so you can snake the cable through tighter spaces on your desk. However, unless you have the OnePlus 9 Pro, the Warp Charge 50 is overkill. The regular OnePlus 9 uses the 15W Extended Power Profile charging spec so you can save yourself a lot of money and open yourself up to a wider variety of styles and sizes by going third-party instead.

I'm a fan of the new RAVPower Magnetic Wireless Charger because even if it won't magnetize to your OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro, it'll charge it at 15W and it comes with a 20W PD charger already in the remarkably tiny box. Most wireless chargers in this price range don't come with a wall plug, so the value here is incredible. Another benefit to this travel-friendly charger is that it doesn't have an LED status light, so it's perfect for the nightstand if you prefer to sleep in an inky abyss like me.

Belkin and Anker also make great Extended Power profile wireless chargers in both flat pads and stands, but both brands have a reputation to uphold and they do so with price tags almost double that of RAVPower. If you prefer the heavier, more solid feel of a classic charger, they're worth the upgrade.

Troubleshooting your wireless charger

Wireless charging is supposed to be drop-dead simple. You plug the wireless charger into the wall, you drop your phone on the charger, it charges. Unfortunately, wireless charging doesn't always seem to work as magically as we were promised all those years ago when it first debuted. If you're having issues here are the steps to take to troubleshoot your wireless charger before you return it and start your shopping cycle all over again:

  • Do you have the right wall charger powering it? Again, the single biggest problem with fast wireless charging isn't dud chargers; it's plugging them into the wrong type/wattage of charger. Most of the chargers on this list come with wall adapters for a reason, but for the rare ones that need you to provide your own, make sure you check the literature and see if the charger needs Qualcomm QuickCharge or Power Delivery. I try to recommend PD wireless chargers whenever possible because fast USB-C chargers are never hard to find these days, but a lot of accessory makers still prefer using QuickCharge to keep costs down.
  • Is your case interfering? I love me a great OnePlus 9 case or 9 Pro case, but if your case is too thick, there might be too much space between the actual charging coil in the wireless charger and the coil inside your phone. Take the case off your phone and see if you get the speeds you were expecting. If so, grab yourself a thinner case.
  • Is the phone properly aligned on the coil? This problem happens more with charging stands than with flat pads because stands need to place a couple of coils in a confined space and if your phone is too tall or too short, they might misalign and either slow-charge or not charge at all. If it's an alignment issue, you'll have to either charge the phone in landscape — almost all stands have a coil near the bottom for phones in landscape mode — or return it and grab a flat pad instead.
  • Is it only misbehaving for your OnePlus 9? If there are multiple users in the house, have them try the wireless charger, too. If it works with other phones but not with your OnePlus 9, you might have a bad coil inside your phone.
