5 Best Wireless Chargers For iPhone XS Max In 2018

Wires seem to cause so many problems, especially with the iPhone. More often than not — usually after around six months to a year, users experience charging problems with the iPhone. This is usually because the tip of the lightning cable has burn marks on the connectors it from charging, or your iPhone’s charging port is packed with dust. When it’s packed with dust, charging is erratic, slow, and sometimes won’t work at all. Suffice to say, using wires is such a pain! If only there was a way around them!

Luckily, there is — wireless charging. And thankfully, all of the Apple’s new iPhone models support wireless charging. So if you’re ready to say goodbye to cables once and for all, be sure to follow along with us below. Here are our top picks for the best wireless chargers for iPhone XS Max.

Mophie Wireless Charging Base

Mophie made a name for itself years ago when it started offering charging cases for the iPhone. This was an extremely innovative product, and they were flying off the shelves at the time.That said, Mophie is back, and this time with an excellent wireless charging base. If you’re looking to charge your iPhone XS Max in a jiffy over wireless, the Mophie Wireless Charging Base is the way to go.

Mophie says it’s capable of outputting a total of 7.5 watts, which will provide you with a really quick charge. Once the wireless charging base is setup, set your iPhone XS Max down on it, and charging begins automatically!

Belkin Boost Up

The Belkin Boost Up is a wireless charging base that came out of a partnership between Apple and Belkin. There wasn’t really a wireless charger designed for the iPhone, and with the Belkin Boost Up, now there is. It’s actually able to provide a fairly quick charge over wireless, with a total output of 7.5 watts. Both Belkin and Apple are reputable companies as well, so naturally, they’ve included a handful of charging precautions to keep your iPhone XS Max safe from electrical surges, over charging, over heating, foreign objects on the charging base, and more.

In typical Apple fashion, the Belkin Boost Up is actually a really sleek looking device. Set this up in your living room or on your nightstand and it won’t look out of place at all.

Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger

The Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger may have not been made for the iPhone, but it’s still a high quality wireless charger that you don’t want to pass up. First and foremost, it offers fast wireless charging. The Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger has a output rating of 9 watts, so it’s somewhat similar levels to what you’d get out of typical charge-by-wire options. Samsung phones do charge faster with this wireless charger, but you’ll still get a quick charge even with with the iPhone XS Max.

The unique aspect to the Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger is the “convertible” part. With it being convertible, you can use this wireless charger as a base or stand. When you’re ready to put work away for the day and forget about your smartphone, just convert the charger into a base, set the phone down on the base and walk away. Charging begins automatically! But, if you need to continue to monitor notifications and take phone calls during the work day — and without pulling your device off the charger — turn it into a stand where you can charge and work at the same time.

Scosche MagicMount

We’re big fans of the Scosche MagicMount for on the go use. This one is more of a battery pack, but it has a capacity of 4,000mAh and can get you out of a pickle pretty quickly. It has a fast charging rate, and can charge by wire, or, with a Qi adapter, you can charge over wireless, too. It does have your standard charging protections to keep you safe from over charging and over heating.

Anker Wireless Charging Pad

Last up, we’re looking at the Anker Wireless Charging Pad. In most cases, a wireless charging pad will set you back around $100, sometimes less. However, if you want to get into wireless charging on the cheap, this offering from Anker won’t cost you more than $22. That said, it isn’t the fastest device in wireless charging — you’ll get a persistent and stable charge, but you won’t get anything fast with this wireless charging pad. To give you an idea, it will take you a couple of hours to charge your iPhone XS Max from dead to full.

Anker has included a bunch of charging precautions inside the circuitry, keeping you safe against electrical spikes, over charging, over heating, and more.

Verdict

There are a lot of excellent wireless charging pads on this list, but it can be difficult to pick the right one for you. If you want the best of the best, you won’t regret the Mophie Wireless Charging Pad — it will set you back a few dollars, but it’ll last you much longer than the life of your phone. On the cheap, the Anker Wireless Charging Pad isn’t a bad option, nor is the Belkin Boost Up.

  1. Hey Eddie! Anker advertises 10W of output, but this is only under very specific conditions — you have to have the proper Anker wall adapter (it cannot be any other wall adapter), and the device has to support their fast charging. In fact, even that’s a little ambiguous, as they make it sound like that fast charging is only for Samsung phones, and it might be. That said, for the large majority of phones, you’re going to only get 5W of output.

  2. How is the Mophie a quick charging base at 7.5 watt output but the Anker being the most powerful of all quick slowly?
