Apple finally gave in and decided that AirPower is not meant to be. That is its loss because there are plenty of options to choose from out there. From stands that charge up to three devices at once to regular wireless chargers meant to charge just your iPhone (or whatever device you use), the options are truly endless. Here are our picks for the best wireless chargers for your iPhone in 2019.
The real AirPower
This is a charging pad that can charge the iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch all at once. No, it is not AirPower, it's Nomad's Base Station Apple Watch Edition that accomplishes the mythical trifecta. As an added bonus, it also has a USB-C and USB-A port on the back if you want to charge even more devices because more is always better.
Double the charge
Samsung has been making fantastic wireless chargers for a while now, and its latest one, the Wireless Charger Duo, is its best one yet. As the name suggests, it can charge two devices at once, one with the charging stand and one with the flat pad. It is perfect for the iPhone and the AirPods combination.
Jack of all trades
The Studio Neat Material Dock is a jack of all trades wireless charger. It has a Qi wireless charging pad, a wireless charger for the Apple Watch and an extra Lightning dock for any extra device you may have like AirPods. That means it can charge three devices at once, and that's on top of coming in a stunning wood finish.
Stand with style
The Logitech Powered Wireless Charger is quite the versatile wireless charger. Its unique design looks odd at first, but it makes sense once you consider it can charge an iPhone in both portrait and landscape mode. It charges via 7.5W and has a hidden LED light on the top that will let you know your phone is charging without annoying you.
A convertible option
Where as most stand wireless chargers are fixed, Samsung's Convertible Wireless Charger is as the name suggested, convertible from a stand to a flat pad. You want your charger to stand? Put it up. You want it flat? Put it flat. The choice is up to you.
The RAVPower Fast Wireless Charger is a fantastic little charger. It is probably the most versatile charger you can find with its slim profile and wireless charging abilities. For compatible Android phones, it'll push out 10W, and for iPhone, it'll charge at the max 7.5W.
Want a great wireless charger without any compromises, go with the Anker Wireless Charger Stand. It offers the basics of no wires and fast charging speeds at up 10W. It is compatible with any Qi-enabled device and comes with a 18-month warranty.
Please stand up
Google's Pixel Stand is one of the best-looking wireless chargers you can buy. Its striking standing look is perfect to put beside your desk or bed stand. Plus its soft touch finish feels really great and the discrete LED light won't blind you at night.
