You can find plenty of wireless chargers for your iPhone. But few are better than Apple’s MagSafe charger. It can magnetically attach to your iPhone and transfer power at up to 15W speeds.

At $39, the official MagSafe charger is expensive. But Amazon is taking a whopping 26% off it, bringing its price down to $29. Also, if you’re looking for more length, there’s a third-party option at the same price that might be an even better deal.

Apple’s MagSafe Charger is the best wireless charger for your iPhone

All iPhones, starting with the iPhone 12 and newer, support MagSafe wireless charging. This means Apple’s MagSafe charger will automatically snap on their back and wirelessly juice up their battery. Since the charger also supports the Qi protocol, you can use it to wirelessly charge your older iPhones or Android phones as well.

While you will find plenty of third-party Qi-compatible wireless chargers for iPhones, many are limited to 7.5W speeds. Newer Qi2 chargers can top-up your iPhone’s battery at a faster 15W speed. But Qi2 chargers are still expensive. In comparison, buying Apple’s MagSafe charger makes much more sense, especially at its discounted price.

Additionally, if you have the AirPods Pro 2 with a MagSafe case, you can charge the earbuds using this charger. Like your iPhone, the AirPods case will magnetically attach to the charger for wireless power transfer.

Apple’s MagSafe charger comes with a 1-meter USB-C cable. Just make sure to use a 20W power adapter with the MagSafe charger for the best charging speeds possible. A lower-watt adapter will cause your iPhone to charge slowly.

Given the convenience that Apple’s MagSafe charger offers, you can’t go wrong with it. And that’s why you should not miss this Amazon deal that knocks the charger down to $29, $10 off its retail price.

While it’s hard to go wrong with genuine Apple gear, Belkin makes a wireless iPhone charger that might actually be better for some people. And it’s also currently on sale for just $29.99. (That’s a $20 discount off its normal price.)

It also will charge your iPhone at 15W. Plus, its extra-long braided USB-C cable measures 6.6 feet — that’s twice as long as Apple’s, which can come in handy for certain situations. Luckily, it comes with a strap for keeping it organized. A pop-up stand on the back of the charging puck makes it easy to watch videos while your iPhone is charging.
