Best Wireless Chargers For Pixel 3 & 3XL Android Central 2019

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are the first devices of the series to support wireless charging, and there are plenty of great charging stands to choose from. Google's own Pixel Stand is specialized for the new Pixels, but that doesn't make it the only option — though most other chargers are limited to 5W Qi charging with the Pixel 3.

Made by Google: Google Pixel Stand

Staff pick

Made specifically for the Pixel 3 series, the Pixel Stand delivers fast charging speeds and turns your phone into a showcase for Google Photos.

10W charging speeds: Belkin Boost Up Pad

You'll get super-fast 10W charging speeds with the Belkin Boost Up in your choice of black, white, or rose gold. We also love how compact it is!

From $51 at Amazon

Fast stand: Belkin Boost Up Stand

Just like the other Boost Up charger, this one delivers full 10W fast wireless charging to the Pixel 3. The only difference is that it's a stand.

$48 at Amazon

Sit or stand: Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible

The 5W charging you get with this Samsung charger isn't quite as snappy, but we love the option of laying the Pixel 3 flat or propping it up.

Plain and simple: Anker PowerWave

Is price your main concern? The PowerWave offers 5W charging at a great value. Just keep in mind it doesn't come with a Quick Charge wall adapter.

From $30 at Amazon

Fashionable fabric: iOttie iON Wireless Mini Fast Charging Pad

For about the same money as Anker's charger, the iOttie iON effortlessly juices up your Pixel 3 while featuring a unique fabric design that we love.

From $23 at Amazon

Actually portable: Mophie Charge Stream Powerstation

Rather than needing to be plugged into a power outlet, this pick from Mophie is actually a portable battery pack that features a Qi wireless charging pad.

Two for the price of one: Yootech Wireless Charging Bundle

For the price of one wireless charger, this bundle from Yootech gives you two — a pad and a stand. You just need to supply the AC adapter to get going.

$27 at Amazon

Stupendous value: ELLESYE Wireless Charger

This is a really great value. ELLESYE includes a sleek charging stand with an LED light, wall adapter, and 5W charge speeds at an unbeatable price.

Want fast wireless charging? Get ready to spend more

While the Pixel 3 and 3 XL both support the universal Qi wireless charging standard, they work a bit differently than other phones. The Pixel 3 will charge on any Qi charger, but unless it's an official Google-approved one, you'll max out at 5W speeds.

If you want the full 10W fast wireless charging goodness and want the best experience possible, we recommend splurging for the Google Pixel Stand. Not only does it get you that top speed, but it gives the Pixel 3 some unique features when it's docked — such as showing pictures saved to Google Photos and having the display showcase warm colors before your alarm goes off to help you wake up more peacefully.

Unfortunately, the Pixel Stand isn't cheap. Double unfortunately, there are hardly any third-party wireless chargers that retain the 10W speed. Right now, your only other options are the Belkin Boost Up Pad and Boost Up Stand. These don't have the special features found on the Pixel Stand, but they do deliver 10W wireless charging for a bit less money.

You can save even more cash with a lot of the other options on this list, but just keep in mind you'll be limited to the much slower 5W rate.
