Wireless charging your smartphone is one of the best “set it and forget it” solutions for a quick charge. You don’t have to worry about plugging in your phone—just place your phone on a charging stand to get some juice.
And right now, Amazon has this Anker Powerwave Stand on sale for just $15 (down from $20). The wireless charger is designed to give your smartphone a seamless and fast charge where ever you can find a wall outlet. That’s a 25 percent savings and the cheapest we’ve ever seen on Amazon.
Power and design
Meanwhile, this PowerWave Stand is one of the best wallet-friendly chargers among Amazon shoppers with more than 1,000 reviewers giving it a 4.7 out of five-star rating. It’s also a speedy little thing with up to 10 watts of juice behind it, compared to the 7.5 watts that comes with standard wall chargers. And thanks to its vertical design, it’s also possible to watch videos, check messages and use Apple’s FaceID to unlock your iPhone at a glance.
“I love this wireless charger so much,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “I can charge my phone while the protective case is still on and the charger works great. I can now rest my phone with the case in this charging cradle on my nightstand. When I receive a text or message, I can simply look over and see the screen without fumbling for the phone. If I need to respond, I can just grab it without being tethered to a cord, which is very convenient.”
If you have a need for speed, then this wireless charger has got you covered. This Anker charging stand also supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology for Fast Charging Mode with up to 10 watts of power. This means it can charge 10 percent faster than standard chargers when paired with a Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 wall adapter, which is not included.
“It doesn't overcharge. It's fast. It's easy,” shared a delighted reviewer. “Very rarely have I noticed much heat buildup in phone (or item being charged). While it does get warm, it isn't anything worrying, and much less than previous Qi chargers I've used. It charges my new (2019) phone from 20 percent to full in about two hours and the average charge time (with less exhausted battery) is about an hour to 45 minutes.”
The Anker PowerWave Stand is ideal for bedroom nightstands, coffee tables or desks at home—thanks to its non-slip LED ring, fast charging speeds and compact and stylish design.
However, it doesn’t feature a cooling fan for additional overheating protection, but it’s safe enough for overnight use since most smartphones stop charging themselves once their batteries are full and at 100 percent power. But if you’d like a model that’s designed with a cooling fan built-in, Anker has this one available too.
“Great wireless charger for desktop or nightstand use. You can view the clock, notifications and other phone features without having to pick up the device,” added another satisfied shopper.
