What makes a good wireless charger for the iPhone 15?

One of the first steps in picking a good wireless charger is checking the certifications the charger carries. The last thing you want is some sketchy charger damaging your device, which can happen with unscrupulous 3rd party chargers. What you want to see is one of two main types of certifications for wireless charging technologies. Any good wireless charger will be either be MagSafe certified, which is Apple’s proprietary wireless charging technology that they certify and license themselves, or Qi certified which is a fairly universal wireless charging standard. In the coming months you will also start to see Qi2 certifications for 15W wireless charging, but not even the iPhone 15 series has finished the certification process yet, which according to Apple is still pending. These certifications give some peace of mind that the charger you are using is safe for your use with your phone.

After that would be considerations on charging speed, though this is less important for charging situations where your phone will be charging for longer stretches, like overnight. As long as the matching type and speed make sense for the application then the wireless charger is probably a good fit. For instance, you’d want MagSafe and its higher charging speed in a car to regain juice on those short trips. Either type of charging standard will work with the iPhone 15.

How do I know which wireless charger is right for me?

At the end of the day each wireless charger we chose serves a specific purpose, and is mostly intended for a particular setting or situation. If the only wireless charging device you have is your iPhone 15 and you just charge your phone once a night on the bedside table then the Apple MagSafe charger or the Belkin MagSafe wireless charger will do the job beautifully.

If your Apple ecosystem runs deeper than that, and you have an iPhone 15, wireless charging AirPods, and an Apple Watch, then you’ll want the Anker 3-in-1 charger with MagSafe. If you only have the iPhone and the AirPods then the Belkin BoostCharge TrueFreedom Pro pad fits the bill. If you’re on the go in your vehicle or abroad then Belkin BoostCharge car charger and the Mophie 3-in-1 foldable travel charger will keep you charged while you’re on the move.
