If you don't have a wireless charger around yet, today's price leaves you no more excuses. This pad charges compatible devices at 10W and others at 5W. Either way, it's a convenient way to juice up and worth adding to your nightstand at this price.

The pad provides 10W high-speed charging for devices that support it, and it gives a 5W charge for any other Qi-enabled phone (though iPhone users should probably go for the $14 version (opens in new tab) that supports 7.5W fast charging). The LED indicators lets you know the charging status of the device, including whether or not the phone's case is too thick or there's something else between the phone and the charger. Luckily, the pad works with most cases up to 5mm thick, but any metal or cards in the back of the phone will prevent charging. Existing users rate it highly with an average of 4 stars out of 5 (opens in new tab) based on over 2,000 reviews. Anker also backs it up with an 18-month warranty.

Though it includes the necessary USB cable, this pad does not come with a wall adapter. You'll want one with Quick Charge 3.0 if you plan to use its fast-charging tech, so grab that additional accessory (opens in new tab) to ensure you're getting the fastest charge.

Of course, it can be difficult to know which wireless charger to go for given how many there are on the market. That's exactly why we put together our list of the best wireless charging pads in 2019 to help you figure out which is the right one for you.
