- 3 Best Fast Wireless Chargers for iPhone in 2020
Most wireless chargers in the market are similar in looks and operations. The key things that make one the best fast wireless charger for an iPhone lie in these factors below.
Consider these factors when you select a fast wireless chargers for your iPhone.
Make sure the wireless charger you are looking at is WPC certificated. WPC certificated means the wireless charger has been tested by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). This ensures that the charger is both safe and complies with the Qi standard. So it will work with your iPhone and other smartphones.
Fast vs standard modes
All wireless chargers in the market can charge iPhone at 5W. But the latest iPhones, including iPhone XS Max/XS/ XR/X/8/8 Plus, support 7.5W fast charging. If you prefer the fast charge, you can get a wireless charger that offers both 7.5W fast charge and 5W standard charge to the iPhone.
This means the charger can charge your iPhone in 2 different modes with different speeds. When there is an issue with the fast wireless charging feature, you can still use the wireless charger to charge your iPhone wirelessly in the 5W charging mode.
Many fast wireless chargers support 10W fast charge (for Samsung phones), 7.5W fast charge and 5W standard charge.
Wireless charging may heat up your phone (see why and solutions). Chances are bigger if the wireless charger is in low quality. A good fast wireless charger should have a built-in smart system to prevent overheating and overcharge.
Brand with reputation
Many wireless chargers from top brands support charging phones via a case. Some are compatible with cases within 5mm, and some work with cases within 3mm. Make sure the wireless charger you’re going to buy can charge your iPhone via most cases in the market.
Most high quality wireless chargers for iPhone are not pricey. You can get one with a nice price (see below). If you have a small budget, buy one that’s $10+ USD. Do not buy one whose price is obviously much lower than the average, for example, a $4 wireless charger from Wish.
We’ve tested more than 30 Qi wireless chargers. Some work pretty well while some have many issues. Below are the 3 best fast wireless chargers for iPhone (including iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus).
This Yootech fast wireless charger is very smart. It recognizes all phones very quickly.

The part we love most about this wireless charger for iPhone is it’s LED light. There is no LED light during charging. At the beginning when you put your phone onto the charger, the LED indicator will show light to tell you it’s charging correctly. After that it will shut off the light automatically.
So if you want a wireless charger to charge your iPhone at night while you’re sleeping without LED light, this one is the best option.
