Instead of bothering to plug in the cord and worrying about the condition of wires, a wireless phone charger saves time and effort. Also, a wireless charger avoids the hassle when you forget a charger and no one shares the same USB type with you. As there are various wireless phone chargers in the market, it is hard to make a choice. Let’s first see some details.

How to choose a good wireless phone charger?

Before knowing about the factors that contribute to a good phone charger, you need to know what phone supports wireless charging first. Here is a list of phones that are compatible with a wireless charger.


There are two major standards for wireless charging in market, one of them is Qi and the other is Powermat, or PMA. Qi is a standard that has been developed by the Wireless Power Consortium for inductive charging over distances of up to 40mm. Powermat is less recognized. In 2014, PMA signed a deal with another wireless charging consortium, the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP). It works on magnetic resonance charging instead. For detailed information you can refer to this passage: Everything you need to know about a wireless charger.

When choosing a good wireless phone charger, you need to consider three things, the first one is compatibility. Ask yourself a few questions, whether it is available for wireless charging or not, whether it supports normal Qi or the rare PMA, or if both are ok.

Secondly, charging time. Going wireless is a tradeoff of charge time for convenience. Before buying one you need to determine how quickly you would need your phone charged. If the charging time is beyond your acceptance, go for some fast wireless chargers.

Thirdly, design. You may prefer white color so you choose a white one, or you may want a long cord that connects the charger with wall seat for convenience. All these decisions just depend on your preference. Here is a great wireless charger to consider.

Wireless charging VS wired charging, which one is better?

Indeed, wireless charging avoids the tear and wear on your device, making it unnecessary to fiddle with cables, enabling multiple smartphones to charge simultaneously. Compared with a traditional cable, it is much safer for there is no possibility of wire attrition.

Yet it also has some cons. For example, wireless charging is slower and less efficient than wired charging. It may make your phone overheat when charging and thereby harm your battery. As for people go for efficiency and don’t want to spend much time in charging, a wired one can be a better choice. Here are some suggestions.
