If you have aor smartphone with wireless charging capability, you have probably already picked up for your office or home, but maybe not for your car. Here is a look at our best options for the best wireless car charger, all of which include a mounting option. As with wireless charging pads, wireless car chargers require power and have a cable that connects to your car's cigarette lighter, so it is not a completely wireless experience when you charge your phone. However, it is good not to have to plug a cable into your smartphone every time you get in your car in the hope of charging your phone completely.
Note that all the wireless chargers in this buyer's guide work with any phone with wireless charging capability, be it an iPhone,, or other models And if it is really connected to the case of your phone, as long as it is not super thick, you can leave it on your smartphone and still be able to your phone.
iOttie finally has an automatic wireless auto-sensing auto-charger, and it's good. The Sense automatic clamp Qi automatic charging phone holder is available in a mounting version on the dashboard or in a CD and vent clip version. (I tried the board version). It has a very well designed telescopic arm and the wireless charging function is compatible with most phone cases. It gets a charge of 7.5W for iPhone and 10W for Android phones, which is considered a quick charge.
It comes with a dual-charge USB cigarette lighter adapter. My only complaint, and it is small, is that the included cable is Micro USB and not USB-C. Once the cable is plugged into the charger, you can basically forget about it, but if the cable is accidentally disconnected (what happens), it is easier to plug a USB-C cable to charge the phone, especially when driving.
If you don't mind going with an unnamed brand like ZeeHoo, your wireless car charger has most of the features you want to charge your phone, including auto-fixing, USB-C and 10W fast charging for Android phones that Support (iPhones have a load limit of 7.5W). It's not as fancy as the iOttie, and it doesn't come with a cigarette lighter adapter, just a USB-C cable, but it costs $ 25 less.
It is one of the most popular generic wireless chargers for cars with automatic arms with automatic detection, and I thought it worked well in general, connected securely to my car's ventilation bracket and quickly charged my smartphone. I liked that it came with a dashboard mount and a vent mount. Note that to get a fast charge, you will need a power adapter that supports it (not included).
If you want to go with a slightly more discreet wireless charger, a magnetic holder is a good option. The iOttie iTap 2 Wireless is available in versions with air ventilation, CD slot and dashboard mounts. I tried the air ventilation version, which has a locking mechanism that keeps the support firmly attached to the ventilation.
In order for your cordless phone to work with a magnetic stand, you need a box with some built-in metal (which I have) or you can place one of the thin adhesive metal plates included on the back of your phone (stick it to the bottom so you don't interfere with wireless charging circuits in the middle). You can even cover the board with your phone's case, but make sure that the case is not too thick or that your smartphone does not adhere to the holder.
The iOttie iTap 2 includes a dual USB car charger that has an additional USB port for charging a second device. The included cable is a Micro-USB cable, not USB-C, and this has no accelerated charging capabilities. My iPhone 11 Pro remained safely in the charger, but those with larger phones like the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 would probably do better to go with one of the options above.
The X-Doria Defense Helix Car Mount with RoboGrip has "robotic" arms that open automatically when you place your phone near the charger and then close after it is attached. You can easily remove it from your charging station at the touch of a button on the dock, which causes the arms to open. It is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.
This charger comes with an air vent bracket, a USB-C cable and a dual car power adapter with two USB-A ports (QC 3.0 and 2.1A). Power iPhones at 7.5W and offer Android phones with fast charging up to 10W.
It is also well built and is relatively inexpensive compared to other wireless car chargers with self-sensing arms. The only small problem I had with him is that, while the ventilation bracket locks up quite safely, if you go through a big pothole and your car bounces, it will sometimes slip.
