Wireless charging has become an increasingly common feature on mobile devices and accessories, and as a result, wireless chargers have flooded the market. But not all wireless chargers are the same. While some can charge your phone quickly, others won’t offer similarly fast charging speeds. And, of course, you don’t want to wait for hours to charge your device.
So I have handpicked the best wireless chargers you can buy in India today. But before we delve into my recommendations, here are a few things to keep in mind while shopping for a wireless charger.
First, you should ensure that your pick can offer your device the fastest possible wireless charging speed. Some smartphone makers use proprietary wireless charging technologies to support faster charging, and your wireless charger pick needs to support these to enable fast charging.
Secondly, you will notice that not all wireless chargers come with a power adapter in the box. So unless you have a compatible power brick lying around, you will need to buy one separately. So the price of that power brick will also add to the total cost of using that wireless charger.

Spigen SteadiBoost Flex
The Spigen SteadiBoost Flex is the best wireless charger you can buy in India. It can deliver up to 15W of charging, depending on your phone. However, as the company doesn’t bundle a power brick in the box, you will have to get a Quick Charge 3.0-compatible charger, and this Mi Superfast charger is a good option.
The highlight of the Spigen wireless charger is its convertible nature. You can use it in both stand-type and pad-type form factors. This also makes it very convenient to store or carry.

Samsung 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand
Like many other smartphone makers, Samsung uses its own wireless charging extension over the Qi standard to offer up to 15W fast wireless charging on its phones. Unfortunately, as third-party manufacturers top out at 10W fast charging for Samsung devices, you are stuck with the company’s official wireless chargers to get the fastest wireless charging speed. And among the company’s offerings, the 15W Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand is the best option.
The charger comes with a bundled power adapter and a USB-C cable to allow you to start using it right out of the box. Additionally, the Samsung charger has a built-in fan that keeps it cool and maintains fast charging speeds.
Like most stand-type chargers, it has two wireless charging coils that enable charging in both portrait and landscape modes. Lastly, as it’s fully compatible with Qi-standard, you can also use it with other Qi-compatible devices.

Apple MagSafe Charger
The Apple MagSafe Charger is a no-brainer for iPhone 12 or 13 series owners. It’s one of the few wireless chargers on the market that can provide 15W wireless charging to iPhones.
The charger has a sleek form factor, and it snaps onto the back of the iPhone without fuss. Of course, you can also use it with older iPhone models and other Qi-compatible devices, but you won’t get the magnetic attachment feature, and it will essentially work like any other pad-type Qi charger.
As Apple doesn’t bundle a power adapter in the box, you need a USB-C power adapter with at least 20W power output.

iOttie EOT Wireless 2 Dash
If you want a wireless charger for your car or another vehicle, the iOttie EOT Wireless 2 Dash is an excellent option. As the name suggests, the iOttie EOT Wireless 2 Dash comes with a dashboard mounting mechanism. But you can also mount the charger to your car’s windshield.
The spring-loaded tension arms of the charger hold your phone securely. And you get several adjustment options to position the phone as per your liking. In terms of charging speeds, most Android phones will get up to 10W fast charging, whereas iPhones will get charged at 7.5W.
iOttie also bundles a power supply in the box, so you don’t have to worry about getting a car charger separately.

Spigen Essential PF2104
The Spigen Essential PF2104 is another excellent wireless charger that can deliver up to 15W of power. It charges most OnePlus phones at up to 15W, Samsung phones at 10W, iPhones at 7.5W, and the rest of the devices at 5W. Unfortunately, there is no power brick in the box, so you will need a 20W USB-PD charger, and the Anker 20W PD Fast Charger is a good option. However, you will also need a USB C to C cable as Spigen weirdly bundles a Type-A to C cable in the box.

As you can see, there are plenty of wireless chargers to pick from. But unless you are just looking to fast charge your Samsung phone or iPhone, Spigen’s SteadiBoost Flex and Essential PF2104 are two of the best options, depending on your form factor preference. Both chargers can quickly charge smartphones from various manufacturers and come with a decent warranty. But for Samsung and Apple phones, the Samsung Fast Charge 2.0 Wireless Charger Stand and Apple MagSafe Charger are most suitable, respectively.
