Wireless charging is the town’s talk with quite a few phones like the latest Apple iPhones (iPhone 8, iPhone X and other variants) that embrace this new charging technology. And so it is only normal that the power bank that you are using should support wireless charging. One of the biggest benefits is that when you want to juice your phone on the go, you don’t have to take a power cord with you. Only add your phone to the power bank, and it’ll do its job on your iPhone to replenish the fee.
By default, most iPhones support a maximum 7.5-watt wireless charging and the power bank that you choose to purchase should at least match the same wattage. Besides that it can bundle other ports and connectors as well.
Wireless charging is normally slow, and it can often take hours to see your iPhone’s battery hit 100%. Therefore the other ports (preferably a USB-C port with Power Delivery) will help you get there if you want to try to upload it quickly.
On that note, here are some of the best wireless charging power banks out there for your Apple iPhone. But before that,
1. KENU BINGEBANK 10000 MAH POWER BANK
The BingeBank power bank’s crux is the compact front-facing 2.4-inch nano-suction grip. This nifty pad prevents phones from slipping, though it may be small , especially when they vibrate. This cool power bank packs a slew of features including 18W charging over the USB-C PD (which is also used to charge the power bank) and a USB-A port compatible with Fast Charge 3.0. It measures around 6.3 x 4.17 x 1.26 inches and these measurements make carrying around compact and comfortable.
Combining the right ports and the power of the battery also means you can use it to charge your MacBook Pro or other compatible USB-C laptops (slow charging) and Android phones.
The wireless charging speed is decent, and you needn’t push any extra buttons for it to initiate. All you need to do is place your iPhone on the pad, and it will be taken care of.
As The Wirecutter folks, the BingeBank could refill an iPhone 11 from 0 to 15-percent in 30 minutes and to 31-percent in about an hour. Quite naturally, the convenience of leaving the power cable comes at a cost, and in this case, it’s the speed.
The good news is that you can trust the 18W USB-C port to do its job if you want to juice your iPhone quickly.
It also includes a folding stand at the front beside the nifty little pad at the top. When you want a handsfree arrangement when watching movies and TV shows, this feature gets into the picture. Best of all, it functions both in portrait mode and in vertical mode
This wireless power bank weighs around 12.7 ounces.
2. AUKEY WIRELESS 10000MAH PORTABLE CHARGER
Another power bank with wireless charging is the 10000mAh Aukey Wireless charger. It has a single USB-C port and a USB-A port, and like its counterpart above, the USB-C port is equipped with Power Delivery, while the USB-A port supports Quick Charge 3.0. When it comes to wireless charging, this device delivers output at 5W, 7.5W, 10W, making it perfect for the Apple iPhones and other phones that support wireless charging.
The matte polish on the Aukey Wireless charger is nice enough to keep your iPhone from falling over, but it doesn’t have the suction top as the unit above. Not as successful as the above-mentioned floor. It does get the job done though.
At the back, there’s a nifty holder that allows you to prop up the phone according to your angle of choice. The stand is stable and durable, and when the phone vibrates, it doesn’t skid or fall off.
The wireless charging speed is good and so is the time it takes for the power bank to charge itself. At the same time , Power Delivery 3.0 and Easy Charge 3.0 ensure stable and stable wired charging.
The LED indicators on the side indicated the charge left on the device.
3. ANKER POWERCORE
Another power bank is the Anker PowerCore, with a 10,000mAh battery. It has a sleek, compact design which makes it easy to hold on your hands. The wireless charging speed, however, is a bit slow because it supports 5W charging. Aside from that, two USB-A ports provide 12W of combined capacity.
The Anker PowerCore costs about the same as the two devices above and to some degree it seems to do its job well. You can charge your iPhone for example without any cable. Or, both the wired and wireless charging can be used simultaneously.
Lastly, the 10,000mAh battery capacity proves to be enough for regular usage, provided you remember to keep the power bank charged.
If you’re an advanced user, however, there are certain drawbacks. For example, to start the wireless charging, you must press a button. Although this isn’t much of a request, it proves to be a bottleneck, especially if you’re a forgetful person.
Second, the USB-A ports do not support Quick Charging, and if you want fast charging, the total 12W power might not be enough. On the bright side, this $35 power bank is a good buy if you can survive on slow charging. Most importantly, it is small and only weighs 7.4 ounces.
With phones and other gadgets growing to support wireless charging, the number of power banks supporting the same will only increase. The only thing you need to see if the device allows you to charge your Apple Watch wirelessly before you buy
