Aside from the amazon no brands, I think it comes down to:

1. Nomad
2. Taptes
3. Jeda

+1 for Taptes charger. Order directly from Amazon since they were in stock near me.

Using it for a few weeks now and have no issues with charging. Works perfectly for me. Love the minimal look of the charger with no branding.

Here are top wireless chargers that are currently available:

• Taptes – Amazon | Website (Price: $49.00)
• Jeda – Website (Price: $99.00)
• Tesla – Website (Price: $125.00)
• Nomad – Website (Price: $129.95)

I don't necessarily believe the Amazon description of able to charge at 10W. There is a lot of mis-information. The front USBs can pull in max 2A (which is 10W). However, there are efficiency losses when doing wireless charging, so I wonder if we can truly get 7.5W charging.

Wondering if these will work with larger phones (I have a note 8).

With my slim case on, I get just enough clearance to lay my phone down on the dock area. With that massive chin on the taptes charger, i fear my phone will only charge sideways, which is not good, as the whole point is I can put my phone and my wifes XR side by side on longer journeys to charge, and then close the lid.

Taptes states that in order to get the full 10w you have to use a QC2.0 or QC3.0 12v adapter. It doesn't go to 10w when plugged into the front USB ports.


  • FAST WIRELESS CHARGING OPTION - The normal charging speed is 5W Output(Restricted by the QI Agreement). But TapTes Wireless Charger also works with other portable QC2.0 or QC3.0 power banks to enable fast charging, with QC2.0 or QC3.0 power input, 7.5W wireless charging on iPhone, 10W wireless charging on Android devices will be supported (Fast Charge is not supported on the Google Pixel/XL and Google Pixel 2/XL.). If want fast charging, we recommend you to buy a 9v power bank first.
