The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL both support wireless charging, so you can just place them on top of supported wireless chargers instead of getting tangled with cables. It can get complicated on what type of wireless charging technology is being used or what chargers to get, but we'll try to explain here.
The unlocked Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL both support the Qi wireless charging standard. The Lumia 950 from AT&T also supports the PMA standard in addition to Qi, but Qi wireless chargers are more widely available.
What wireless charger to get
Extra Features: Nokia DT-903 Smart Wireless Charging Plate
This wireless charger is compatible with any phone that supports Qi wireless charging. It also lights up when your phone is charging. If you pair your Lumia 950 and 950 XL with the DT-903, a soft light will appear beneath the charger when the battery is low. There's also a notification light for missed calls, text, and emails. Microsoft is replacing this model soon with the DT-904, which is very similar, except that there will be a Microsoft logo, instead of Nokia. Check out our hands-on video of the Nokia DT-903! Price: $59
Minimalistic: Anker PowerPort Qi Wireless Charging Pad
If you need to simply charge the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 wirelessly without all the extra fancy features mentioned above, this accessory from Anker is a good choice. It's a lot cheaper too. You can buy four of these chargers and still have money left over compared to the Nokia DT-903. Price: $12.49
Dock: Qi-infinity T900 Folding Qi Wireless Charger Dock
If you need to look at your phone while it is wirelessly charging, we recommend this charging dock. It can support any angle up to 90 degrees during charging which makes it easier to watch movies or read emails. Price: $44.99
For the car: Nokia Wireless Charging Car Holder
In addition to charging your phone wirelessly while driving, you can tap your phone on the NFC logo on the car holder to launch an application of your choice. You can set it up so that your phone opens the Maps apps. Price: $59.99
Wired or wireless?
Even though the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL both support wireless charging, don't forget that they also support fast charging with USB-C Fast Charger included with the phones. Microsoft claims you can get up to 50% capacity with just 30 minutes of charging. Are you going with wired or wireless charging? Fortunately, it doesn't matter since you can use both methods!
