Reviewing mophie’s wireless charging stands and pads

Many of today’s current crop of phones feature support for the Qi wireless charging standard. Whereas it was once reserved for flagships and select models, it’s growing increasingly common and working its way into lower priced devices.

And while a lot of phones have support for wireless charging, very few come with a wireless pad or stand. Indeed, it’s typically just bundled with a USB cable. That’s where companies like mophie step in.

We’ve had two of mophie’s more recent wireless charging solutions, the Dual Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Stand. At their heart they offer the same fundamental feature, wireless charging for a phone, but they are two entirely different products.

Dual Wireless Charging Pad

As its name might suggest, this one offers support for two phones at a time. Be it Apple, Samsung, Google, or anything else, there’s space for two handsets.

Capable of safely delivering up to 10W of charging power, this is the sort of product you might put in a central location such as the living room or den. This way you and your spouse can charge phones up over dinner.

Or maybe you want to use it for your Samsung Galaxy Buds or Airpods Pro. Who are we to tell you what to do with it? The only thing you can’t charge with the platter is the Apple Watch.

To solve this problem, mophie has included a USB A port on the side which lets you plug in a cable. Essentially this becomes a 3-in-1 charger. So, plug in your watch’s cable and you’re good to go!

The Dual Wireless Charging Pad is lightweight and features a smooth “Ultrasuede” finish that fits with any decor or environment. Thanks to the five-foot cable you can plug it in behind the dresser or nightstand without worry. About $80 at Verizon, Amazon, and Apple

Wireless Charging Stand

More traditional in its features and purpose, this is the sort of unit you’d place on your work desk or kitchen counter.

With an adjustable design, you can lie it flat on a table and place your phone on it for an overnight charge. Or, prop it up at an angle so you can glance over at notifications as they come in. It also makes for convenient video chat sessions, too.

Present here is the same soft touch material that gently kisses the back of your phone. It’s classy stuff that looks good on a desk and doesn’t stick out or call too much attention to it.

We’ve tried the charger with phones that have cases on them and found success for the most part. Some of the most rugged and tough cases might present an issue but those which come in at 3mm or thinner should be no problem. About $70 at ZAGG

Best wireless chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

The Galaxy S8 Plus is the bigger take on the 2017 flagship phone experience from Samsung and even today it’s among sexier devices on the market. It can still run with the best of ’em, and we love all of the nifty hardware. One feature we simply adore is wireless charging. Once you’ve used it, it’s hard to mess with cables ever again.

Here are some of the best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus wireless chargers for home, work, and even on-the-go.

Standard Platter

These are the flat types of chargers you’ll find on desks and night stands; they often come in circular and rectangular shapes. Many of these offer variable output speeds so they’ll play nice with your friend’s iPhone, too.

Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad


A trusted name in the tech space for decades now, Belkin still delivers the goods. This charger pumps out up to 10-watts for your Sony and LG phones, and can optimize to 9W for Samsung. The LED indicator let you know how things are going while the rubber ring holds the handset in place. The cable is five feet long so you can plug into the out-of-the-way outlets. Purchase for $45 from Amazon or $60 from Belkin.

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charger Pad


When it comes to smartphone popularity it’s Samsung’s pie and the rest of the players share pieces of it. If you want official accessories, this is the charger you go with for Samsung devices.

It’s about 1.4x times faster than conventional wireless tech, has a circular strip of rubber to prevent your handset from sliding around, and a bright LED to indicate charging. Offered in Black, Navy, and White to match your favorite phone. $25 at Amazon

Yootech Wireless Charger


When you don’t need anything fancy and don’t want to spend a ton of money, you look for something like this. Compatible with all Qi-enabled phones, it works at 5W, 7.5W, and 10W charging standards. You’ll need to use your charging adapter and cable if you go with the high speed stuff, but you already have the one that came in your phone’s box. Sleep easy knowing that the green light turns off after a few seconds so your room doesn’t glow all night. $15 at Amazon

The dual coils mean it’s as convenient to set your phone upright as it is to flip it on its side for watching Netflix.

Mophie introduces four new wireless chargers from the Charge Stream family

Mophie known for its quality mobile accessory, this week launched a four new additions to the Charge Stream lineup. These are all wireless chargers designed to work with compatible smartphones from Apple, Samsung and other Qi-enabled smartphones.

The new products are the vent mount, desk stand, powerstation wireless, and powerstation wireless XL. Below we take a quick look at each to see what they bring to the table.

Vent mount

Mophie offers a wireless charger that attaches itself to your car’s air vent mount. The accessory can hold your phone in place securely while its juicing it up. It has a wireless charging output of 10W and is optimized for Samsung’s 9W maximum charging capacity, as well as the iPhone’s 7.5W. It’s available for $69.95 starting now.

Desk stand

As the name suggests, the desk stand is a wireless charging station that can be placed on all sorts of furniture in your home. The device allows you to charge your phone in either portrait or landscape mode. You can also remove the wireless charging pad and use it as a normal charger pad. It outputs power at 10W. The desk stand will be available this fall for $69.95.

Powerstation wireless and Powerstation wireless XL

While most wireless chargers can charge your phone sans chords, they themselves are usually tethered to a power cord. But not the powerstation wireless and powerstation wireless XL. Instead, they have built-in 6,040 mAh and 10,000 mAh batteries, so they function as true wireless chargers.

But there’s a tiny catch here. They can only output 5W when in mobile mode. The good news is that you can still get 10W. If you don’t mind using the USB cable, that is. Both powerstations are currently up for grabs for $79.95 and $99.95 respectively.

All four new mophie wireless chargers can work with phone wearing cases up to 3mm thick.
