Cables are becoming a thing of the past. A couple of years ago, Apple shocked the smartphone industry by removing the headphone jack from the iPhone.
Recently, there have been some rumors circulating all over technology websites that the tech giant from Cupertino may even be planning to launch a completely portless iPhone as soon as next year. Why is this so important?
As you know, Apple usually leads the trends in the technology industry. And if the same thing as with the headphone jack entrance happens and the whole industry adopts the portless design, it could mean that smartphones will exclusively be charged wirelessly in the near future.
If you are a tech enthusiast, you probably haven’t used a traditional phone charger in a while. The truth is that it doesn’t get simpler than just dropping your smartphone onto the charger, especially now that wireless chargers support fast charging.
And you won’t have to deal with lost or damaged cables, or have the cable peeking over your bedside table. Apparently, the future is wire-free. That’s great news for all the cable management freaks out there.
Considering all of this, we have decided to present you with a list of the best wireless chargers for 2020. Please note that every item on this list supports the Qi wireless standard, which means that they will function with both Android devices and iPhones.
1. Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand
With 10 watts of power, this product is capable of providing fast charging for both Samsung and Apple’s flagship models.
Its sleek design allows you to charge your smartphone in landscape or portrait mode, which is perfect if you want to use it to check the time, read notifications, or watch a video while it charges.
The Belkin Boost Up is available in two colors: black or white, and is compatible with smartphone cases that are up to 3 mm thick. It is also worth mentioning that this device only charges smartphones, so keep that in mind.
