About this deal

If you’re an iPhone user, then anything from the iPhone 8 to now can be wirelessly charged. Samsung Galaxy lovers can still get a top-up from the S6 series (any phone from 2015 onwards to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra), while Google fans can enjoy the boost if using the Google Pixel 3 or beyond. Although you can get adapters that transform older phones into wirelessly-compatible ones, you’ll have to buy those separately. In terms of generic chargers, the fastest speed you'll get is the Qi standard of 7.5W. This isn't particularly speedy, but it'll work with any wirelessly chargeable smartphone, or other devices like wireless earbuds at slower speeds. Is 10W or 15W better for wireless charging? Where battery life wasn’t the Pixel 6’s strong suit last year, stamina is undoubtedly the star of the show in 2022. Boosting battery life by over four hours in our video rundown test, the Pixel 7 lasted 22hrs 43mins before needing a top-up. Google also says that if you enable the “Extreme Battery Saver” options in the phone’s settings, you could reach a massive 72 hours between charges. While the units will all charge, they may not do so at the same rate, so which will top up your phone while keeping you en route and entertained? We plugged in eight to find out. How we tested them

If space on your desk is at a premium, this handsome charger from Otterbox gives you the most compact footprint we've come across for a 2-in-1 charger. With its silver and white finish, it'll match well with your other Apple gear, while the magnetic charging surfaces will keep your Apple Watch and iPhone secure as they power up. I particularly appreciated the 90 degrees of motion that the iPhone charger has, which lets you hold the phone at a specific angle (good for watching stuff while powering up), or charge non-magnetic accessories like a pair of AirPods by tilting it into its flat position. The company did mention that all cameras can now record at up to 4K resolution at 60fps, and this makes a huge difference to video quality, especially if you often record using the selfie camera. A new feature called Dual allows you to record video on both the front and rear cameras simultaneously, too.The truth about wireless charging speeds is that, for most people, 10W or 15W is more than enough charging power. Your phone won't charge as fast as if plugged into a cable direct (unless you're charging just off a USB cable), but you won't find yourself waiting half a day for good charge. We think for most people anything faster, while obviously nice to have, isn't essential by any means.

Not all phones support wireless charging, but most brands have models that do, so look up your phone model first. You'll usually see "Qi wireless charging" (the default standard) or simply "wireless charging" if it does.

The issue when buying wireless chargers isn’t the cost, but actually whether they are Qi-certified or not. If it’s got a Qi-certified stamp on it (the Chinese word for “energy flow“, do you get the metaphor?), then you know it’s got the charging standard stamp of approval by an electricity safety board to not start sparking and overheating as soon as you use it. There are two small issues I found with this charger. First, the integrated USB-A cable, although braided for durability, looks cheap compared to the rest of the pad, and is only 90cm (3 feet) long, making the places where I could put the charger limited by how close my power outlets were. Plus, the charger is only capable of 10W output, which while available with any compatible device, is a bit slow. Which company's wireless charger is best? Running the Geekbench 5 CPU multi-core test, the Pixel 7 scored 3,309 to the Pixel 6’s 2,843: a generational improvement of around 16%. This score puts it within reaching distance of the Galaxy S22’s Exynos 2200 but the Pixel is still a long way behind the year-old A15 Bionic inside this year’s iPhone 14. The single-core result, meanwhile, is practically identical to the previous version.

Stands will prop your device up so you can watch videos or glance at incoming notifications while you work and will more than likely have additional space for watches and earbuds to recharge at the same time. Is a wireless charger worth it? Whichever charger you choose, keep a few things in mind if it doesn't immediately and perfectly match your expectations:You can get stand chargers that let you prop your phone up while it charges, chargers with multiple charging points for another phone or other accessories such as a smartwatch or wireless earbuds, and chargers built into power banks so you can fill up while on the move. You can even buy mouse pads with wireless charging so you can top your phone up while you do a spot of PC gaming. This charger still works great with other smartphones, you just won't be able to access many of those Pixel features. The biggest downside? Charging only works in portrait orientation. Oh, and it's definitely overpriced. The good news is the first-gen Pixel Stand is still available for much less; you can recharge your phone in landscape and portrait orientation, and I daresay it looks more interesting. The Google Pixel 7 is rated at a maximum charging speed of 30W and, in my testing, I found it went from zero to 50% in just over 30 minutes. It also supports 20W wireless charging via any Qi-compatible charger and it can reverse power share with other devices such as the Google Pixel Buds Pro. It can’t charge the new Pixel Watch, though, since that devices doesn’t support wireless charging. Google Pixel 7 review: Display
