Who needs cables when these wireless chargers are so incredibly cheap?

Smartphones, TVs, and big electronics get all of the attention on Black Friday, but there are tons of great deals to be had for smaller items and accessories, like wireless phone chargers. If you are getting a new smartphone like the Google Pixel 4 (opens in new tab) or wireless earbuds like the AirPods Pro (opens in new tab), then you want to get a couple of these great charging pads to put around the house. At $20 or less, these also make great stocking stuffers or secret Santa gifts!

Anker Powerwave Wireless Charging Stand

Anker PowerWave Fast Wireless Charger Stand

Stand up your phone to better see notifications while you charge. This stand also supports 10W charging, which is better than many standard wireless pads.

Anker has a reputation for making quality electronics and accessories for a fair price, and we haven't seen a better deal yet than this PowerWave Wireless Charger Stand for $12. What I love about this stand is that I can actually SEE my notifications, the time, or my smart voice assistant's responses at a glance. No more contorting my face or thumb to unlock my phone, or do some kind of weird hand gesture just to get the infomation I want.

This stand charges faster than many wireless chargers, and you can also juice up in landscape mode as well. Don't worry about your case either... as long as it's no more than 5mm thick, you'll be good to go here.

Mophie Wireless Charging Pad

Mophie Wireless Charging Pad

This classic wireless charger is one of the best you can get, and right now it's over 60% off!

This Mophie Wireless Charging Pad was the first Qi charger I ever owned, and I still use it to top off my phone every night. It's going on three years strong, with no sign of failure. The pad only charges at 7.5W (compared to 10W for the Anker one), but it's still faster than the standard 5W brick still common for iPhones and some other smartphone manufacturers.

One of my favorite little features about this charger is that it has a non-slip rubberized coating on the bottom. This means that the puck will stay in place where you want it, be that on a bedside table or your office desk. It sounds like a small thing, but it makes a big difference!
