Wireless charges are going through a standards update from Qi to Qi 2.0, which brings Apple’s Magsafe-like magnetic functionality along with faster 15W charging. If you’re in the market for a wireless charger and are not using an iPhone, it might be wise to wait for a Qi2-based charger.

However, for Apple fans or users who don’t plan on updating their phones for the next few years, here are the best wireless chargers you can buy in the UAE and Saudi Arabia today.

Wireless charging has become a standard feature in not just high-end mobile phones but also most mid-ranged phones, catering to a world where battery life is as crucial as the phone itself. The appeal of wireless chargers lies in their simplicity; place your phone or tablet on a pad or stand, and the battery begins to replenish, with no fiddling with cables required. This ease of use also makes them an increasingly popular choice for home, office, or even public spaces.

The versatility of wireless chargers is evident in their support for a range of devices, from smartphones to headsets, all adhering to the Qi standard—a widely adopted wireless charging protocol. This universality means that most wireless charging accessories will work with your Qi-enabled devices, making it a convenient one-size-fits-all solution. However, not all wireless chargers are created equal, with differences in speed, design, price, and additional features.

When considering a wireless charger, it’s important to look for power output, measured in watts (W), which affects charging speed. The best wireless chargers should also have a design that suits your space and aligns with your usage, whether that’s a flat pad or an angled stand. It is also important to ensure that your device is compatible with the charger and that the charger has been certified for safety.

Our research to find the best wireless chargers in UAE led us to test various models to determine which ones stand out in terms of reliability, features and value. We understand that the best wireless charger for you is one that not only charges effectively but also aligns with your daily needs and habits.

Buying Guide

Understanding Charging Speeds

When we’re selecting a wireless charger, the charging speed is important. It is measured in watts (W); higher wattage typically means faster charging. However, you should verify that your devices are compatible with the charger’s maximum output.

  • Standard Speed: Usually around 5W, suitable for overnight charging.
  • Fast Charging: Ranges from 7.5W to 15W or more; look for these if we need a quick power boost.

Most chargers use the Qi standard, but checking the device’s specification is a good practice to avoid mismatches.

Device SupportVerify that our device supports the charger’s maximum wattage.

Design and Build

Wireless chargers come in multiple forms- some allow you to lay your phone flat on them, while others have a standing position. Apple’s MagSafe technology allows you to attach the phone to the charger magnetically, and that’s also becoming a part of the Qi 2.0 standard, which will most likely come to Android phones in 2024.

  • Flat Pads: Good for placing on a nightstand or desk.
  • Stand Chargers: Allow us to use the device while it charges, which is ideal for desks.
  • MagSafe Chargers: Magnetically attach your iPhone to the charger, making it easy to place your phone on the charger.
  • Portable Chargers: For charging on the go, we should consider lightweight and compact designs.

Considering Additional Features

Some wireless chargers come with extra features that might enhance their convenience.

  • Multi-Device Charging: Charging pads that accommodate multiple devices can be handy.
  • LED Indicators: Useful for showing charging status without being overly bright or disruptive.
  • Overheating Protection: Safety features help prevent damage to the charger or device.

Frequently Asked Questions

When choosing a wireless charger, factors such as compatibility, charging speed, and design are crucial for ensuring the best user experience.

We suggest looking for an MFi (Made for iPhone) certification to ensure compatibility and considering a charger with at least 7.5W charging capability for efficient power delivery. For iPhone 12 and newer models, consider a MagSafe-compatible charger that magnetically attches to your iPhone.

Ensure the wireless charger supports the Qi standard universally used by Android devices, and check for fast charging support, which usually starts at 10W and above. Some Android phone manufacturers support much higher wireless charging speeds (up to 50W) but require specific chargers.

For Samsung phones, seek chargers that support Adaptive Fast Charging specific to Samsung devices to enable fast charging. Also, a charger with a cooling fan can help maintain performance during rapid charging.

We recommend looking for wireless charging pads or stands that offer multiple charging coils and ensure the total output is high enough to charge several devices effectively at once. Our top pick for this guide, the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1, supports charging two phones and an Apple Watch simultaneously.

A 3-in-1 wireless charger is convenient, reduces cable clutter, and is designed to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously without sacrificing charging efficiency.

Higher wattage in a wireless charger generally correlates to faster charging times, provided your device can accept the higher power output. However, charging efficiency also depends on the coil placement and the charger’s technology.

That wraps up our guide to the best wireless chargers available in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Let us know in the comments if you’ve picked one up or if there is one we’ve missed that deserves to be on this list.
