In most cases, it is for this reason that the device is equipped with a glass case (metal will not contribute to the implementation of this technology). It should be noted, however, that no manufacturer includes a wireless charger itself. In this regard, the buyer faces a difficult choice. How to decide on charging? What should you focus on when looking for it? Perhaps the easiest way is to look at the rating prepared by the team of authors. Here we will consider the best models that are convenient to use and have an adequate price tag.

Belkin BoostUp Wireless Charging Pad

Rating: 4.9

Belkin BoostUp Wireless Charging Pad

Only high-quality smartphone accessories are sold under the Belkin brand. All of them cost a lot of money, but the user can count on perfect compatibility and a long service life of the purchase. A good example of this is wireless charging, slightly saucer-like. The diameter of the device is 12 cm. Such a decent parameter is needed so that even a tablet is conveniently located on the surface. Although, in fact, the device can easily cope with charging smartphones. Absolutely all gadgets that use the Qi wireless charging standard are supported here, and even the popular iPhone 8 is supported here.

On the case of the accessory there are indicators for switching on and charge level. The large surface area contributes to an even distribution of heat, so that the product will definitely not suffer from overheating. The buyer can be confused by a very high cost, reaching 9,000 rubles. This may seem like too much even for Belkin products. The inflated price tag is associated with the high power of the product. The smartphone located on the 'saucer' is capable of receiving electricity with a current of 1.5 A. Wireless method! That is, the charging time will be almost the same as when connecting the wired power adapter.

It remains to add that the accessory itself receives power via a cable connected to the USB connector. This is, if not the best wireless charger in our ranking, then certainly the most reliable. It can be purchased by all owners of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S9 and other smartphones with support Qi technology.

Advantages

  • High power (7.5 W / 1.5 A);
  • Even a very large smartphone fits on the charge;
  • Very long service life;
  • Support for all gadgets with Qi technology.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost.

Samsung EP-PG950BBRGRU Black

Rating: 4.8

Samsung EP-PG950BBRGRU Black

In most cases, wireless chargers are white. It is possible that by this the creators are trying to ensure that dust is not visible on the accessory. However, there are manufacturers who have taken a different path. For example, the South Korean company Samsung has decided to put on store shelves a device whose body is painted either black or brown. The second option is the most relevant, as it makes the accessory original.

While many other wireless chargers lie flat on a table or bedside table, the EP-PG950 consists of two sliding halves. The result is something like a docking station, as this accessory also allows you to hold the smartphone in an inclined position. This helps in quick familiarization with incoming messages when, for example, you are working at a computer. At the same time, the device turned out to be no less powerful than the above version from Belkin – here the output voltage reaches 9 volts. The material used in the creation of the case should also be noted. This is polycarbonate, but it imitates skin very well – something similar was previously observed in phablets and tablets from the Galaxy Note series. Interestingly, not every guest of yours recognizes a charger in this device, someone will certainly take it for a wireless speaker or something like that.

The official website says that the accessory was developed for the Samsung Galaxy S8. However, in fact, this charging is a little more versatile – it will work with many other South Korean smartphones. But before buying, read reviews and reviews to find a mention of your specific device.

  • Great appearance;
  • Can hold the smartphone in an inclined position;
  • There is an adapter from micro-USB to USB Type-C;
  • Fast charging supported;
  • Suitable for many Samsung smartphones;
  • The device is common in many Russian stores;
  • The cost does not exceed 5 thousand rubles.

  • Makes some noise;
  • There is no USB cable in the box.

Mophie Wireless Charging Base

Rating: 4.7

Mophie Wireless Charging Base

This wireless charger is a large enough pad on which the user's smartphone is placed. It is painted black, and the user will also find a cable with a power supply in the kit. The surface of the accessory has a special coating that prevents the smartphone with a glass body from sliding. And the charging itself is quite difficult to move off the table.

This model costs about 5300 rubles. It supports most smartphones based on the Qi standard. That is, the accessory will definitely charge iPhone 8, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 and many other similar devices. It should also be noted that there are strong magnets here. They will keep the device strictly in the position that allows it to receive the maximum amount of electricity. The accessory supplies maximum 5-volt voltage. Nevertheless, even this figure is enough to provide the gadget with a current of 2 A (the real figure depends on which smartphone is placed on the surface). Plastic and polyurethane were used here as materials for the manufacture of the case – in this regard, nothing unusual should be expected from an accessory. As for its dimensions, the platform diameter does not exceed 97 mm. This makes wireless charging from the American company Mophie the smallest in our ranking.

Advantages

  • Charging is universal;
  • The kit contains everything you need;
  • The accessory does not slip, like the smartphone itself on it;
  • The product contains magnets;
  • Easy to take with you – won't take up much space in your bag or backpack;

Samsung EP-N5100BBRGRU

Rating: 4.6

Samsung EP-N5100BBRGRU

One of the most affordable wireless chargers made by Samsung. It costs from 2800 to 4000 rubles. Like its more expensive counterpart, the accessory consists of two halves. When unfolded, the product can hold the device in an inclined position. The difference is that the simplest plastic is used here, no imitation of the skin is observed. The accessory can be painted either white or black. Both options look pretty good on the desktop, helping you see your incoming message as quickly as possible when you're doing something on your computer.

Despite the low cost, the charging options are practically unlimited. She tries to fill the smartphone with energy using a current of up to 1.9 A. If there is a flagship on the site, then it will charge quickly enough. The product is primarily designed to interact with the Samsung Galaxy S9. However, the already traditional Qi technology is used here, so you can count on charging some other smartphones, it's just that the process will not be so fast. Perhaps, if you are the owner of a South Korean flagship, then your choice is predetermined, especially if you do not want to spend a lot of money on wireless charging. Everyone else is better off thinking about the other options discussed in our rating. Or at least do not forget to read reviews on charging, where users write about which smartphones the accessory works with perfectly.

Advantages

  • High power;
  • The smartphone can be in two positions;
  • Affordable price;
  • The platform is rubberized;
  • There is an indication of the charge level;
  • There is no strong heating;
  • Long service life;
  • Available in many Russian stores.

disadvantages

  • Not the best design;
  • Charging is not always quick.

Nillkin Magnetic Wireless Charger Car II

Rating: 4.5

Nillkin Magnetic Wireless Charger Car II

The cheapest wireless charger in our ranking. In Russian retail, only 1600-2100 rubles are asked for this device, depending on the greed of a particular store. The low cost of the product is due to its narrow specialization. The fact is that it is actually a car charger. This is also hinted at by a special Velcro fastener, thanks to which the accessory is held on the dashboard, and a cable with a cigarette lighter socket. Interestingly, there is also a clothespin with which the charge clings to the grill of the air conditioner.

The product uses powerful magnets, so you shouldn't wait for the smartphone to slide down on the next pit. Unfortunately, this is where the accessory ends. The savings have forced the manufacturer to drop support for fast charging. As for suitable smartphones, almost all devices equipped with support for Qi technology are among them. It is noted that most often the choice in favor of this wireless charging is made by taxi drivers who need to use a smartphone as a GPS navigator.

Advantages

  • One of the few wireless car chargers;
  • The device is versatile;
  • The smartphone practically does not slip;
  • Very low cost;
  • Reliable construction;
  • A pair of mounts included;
  • Available in many Russian stores;
  • The device not only tilts, but also rotates.

disadvantages

  • No fast charging support.

Conclusion

This is the list of the best wireless chargers available on the Russian market. As you can see, they have a different form factor, and in terms of cost, all these products are noticeably different. Now you just have to think about the amount with which you are ready to part, after which you can make a purchase.
