Best Wireless Charging Pads for iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus (so far)

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all support the Qi standard wireless charging. That means preexisting chargers work with iPhone right away!

Apple's latest line of iPhone is easier to charge than any previous Apple device ever. That's because they support the Qi standard of wireless charging. The Qi standard has been around for a while now, so companies have been perfecting their products, which is great for iPhone 8 or iPhone X owners that have never had the luxury of wireless charging before. Here are the best Qi standard wireless charging pads you can get for the iPhone right now.

Mophie Wireless charging base

Apple called out Mophie when it first announced that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X would support Qi wireless charging technology. Right now, the charging base, designed specifically for Apple's newest iPhones, is not available for sale. You can, however, sign up for notifications and be the first on your block to get one.

Apple also called out Belkin when it first announced that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8, Plus, and iPhone X would support wireless charging. This $30 wireless charging pad offers 1-amp output for fast charging of supported devices and is small enough to practically fit in your back pocket. The face of the pad is made from soft griping materials to prevent from scratching the back of your glass iPhone.

Scosche MagicMount Charge for home/office

Scoshce MagicMount for Home and office

If you want to be able to keep an eye on your iPhone screen while it charges, the MagicMount charger positions your device upright using a standing mount. The charger is mounted to your desk or table using a suction cup base and it has an adjustable head for different angling. Instead of a cradle, the MagicMount uses magnetic connection with a "MagicPlate," which I'm guessing is some sort of metal plate that you stick to the back of your iPhone (how the doesn't interrupt the charging transmitter, I do not know. I guess that's why they call it "magic").

The $79.99 MagicMount home charger won't be available until October, but you can sign up for email notification when it's available to purchase.

Anker Wireless Charging Pad

The Anker wireless charging pad is a sleek, slim pad that has a 10W power supply for fast-charging devices but also switches to 5W charging for non-fast charging devices. It has a nice, subtle LED status system that pulses slowly while charging so it's less intrusive in your bedroom at night. Though it is recommended that you remove the case before charging, users have confirmed that it works through cases just fine. You can pick up the Anker wireless charger for about $22.

iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless charging car mount

iPhone owners, rejoice! Charging our phones while driving just got hella cool. The one thing I hate about using a phone mount in my car is that, if it starts to run low on juice, I've got to plug in the cable, which is not easy to do while driving. iOttie makes a slim, sleek Qi wireless charger with an adjustable telescoping arm. It uses suction cup mounting, which I've never really had much success with, but you can get a dashboard pad to get a better grip if your dashboard is textured or curved. The iOttie Easy One Touch costs $45.
