You're running late for an appointment. You're tugging on your shoes, keys in one hand, smoothing down your hair with the other - but for the life of you, you can't figure out how to untangle your charging cables from each other. You spend a few frustrating seconds trying your best, before giving up and just ripping your phone free with a short prayer that nothing is damaged.

Sounds familiar? We've been there too, and this is why wireless charging is revolutionising the scene - just like how our wireless earbuds have made tuning in to music hassle-free. Simply leave your wireless charger on your bedside table, and place your tech on top of it. Whether it's your mobile phone or your new pair of AirPods, you can trust that it'll be ready for you to grab and go when you need to. No-fuss needed at all.

To help ease the process, we at Synced have put together a list of the best wireless chargers in Singapore for 2021. Take a look - your next best friend might just be waiting for you!

What are the types of wireless charging?

When it comes to wireless chargers, there are two main types of wireless charging offered that we will briefly touch on. It is important to note that certain types of phones only support stipulated types of wireless charging - thus, this might be a point that influences your decision.

Qi Wireless Charging
Firstly, there is Qi wireless charging. Derived from the Chinese term of the same name, it refers to wireless power transfer through inductive charging over a distance of up to 4 cm. Generally, mobile phones by Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC, Huawei, Nokia, Motorola and Blackberry support Qi wireless charging, though you would have to check if the specific model of your phone qualifies.

MagSafe Wireless Charging
Next, there is MagSafe wireless charging. MagSafe charging is one of Apple's wireless charging innovations, and makes use of magnets shaped in a circle around the internal charging coil. Once in contact with the wireless charger, the internal magnets will snap into place, making for a seamless charging experience. 

Best Overall: Belkin Boost-Up Wireless Charging Stand

The Belkin Boost-Up Wireless Charging Stand has received multiple favourable reviews from various sources, and is thus overall the best wireless charger we considered.

The Belkin Boost-Up Wireless Charging Stand supports Qi wireless charging, and should be compatible with all Qi-enabled devices. As advertised by Belkin, this includes Apple, Samsung, LG and Sony. It supports a charging speed of up to 10W, although Apple users should note that the latest iPhones only support up to 7.5W. Nevertheless, it's safe to say that this is a relatively high charging speed.

As far as design goes, the Belkin Boost-up Wireless Charging Stand comes in black or white, and has a relatively unimposing design. This means that no matter your personal aesthetic, this wireless charging stand is guaranteed to blend in seamlessly with your home.

What stands out about the Belkin Boost-up Wireless Charging Stand is, well, its status as a charging stand. With a "dock" for you to place your phone, you will never have to worry about missing that special spot and failing to charge your phone. You can rest assured that your phone is secured in place safely, and you can also elect to place your phone in either portrait or landscape orientation. Unlike a standard charging pad, this also means that you can still use your phone to an extent while it is charging - for instance, you can continue watching your favourite shows while your phone charges.

However, some users have noted that the "dock", being fixed in place, might not be the most friendly to all sizes of devices. For instance, some users have found difficulty with charging their AirPods as they are too small to connect well to the charging surface. On the other hand, users with larger devices may find that they are unable to fit their devices into the designated dock.

Overall, the Belkin Boost-Up Wireless Charging Stand is an excellent pick. For those who prefer a pad-based wireless charger, you may also opt for the Belkin Boost-up Wireless Charging Pad instead. With its rapid charging speed, relatively affordable price point, and the inclusion of a cable and wall charger (the small things count!), we feel that you can't go wrong with this reliable wireless charger.If you're keen to add the Belkin Boost-Up Wireless Charging Stand to your lifestyle, learn more about it here.

Best for Apple Users: Apple MagSafe Charger

As kids, we've all played with magnets, and nothing beats the satisfaction of hearing two magnets click together. So why not bring that to your adult life?

The Apple MagSafe Charger works precisely on this principle. Simply "clip" on the charger to the back of your iPhone, and you're set. The magnets perfectly adhere to each other, ensuring that you'll never have that dreaded moment of horrified realisation when you pick up your phone only to see that it hasn't charged at all.

Design-wise, the Apple MagSafe Charger has no frills - but boy, does it pack a punch when it comes to its charging speed. Don't be deceived by its unassuming appearance! The Apple MagSafe Charger is able to charge at a whopping 15W for most iPhone 12 models, though this number does decrease to 12W for the iPhone 12 mini. However, to achieve these speeds, you will need Apple's 20W power adapter. The Apple MagSafe wireless charger takes roughly one hour to charge from zero to fifty percent, which is double the time compared to traditional charging . Nevertheless, this is a significant improvement over a Qi-based charger, which maxes out at 7.5W for Apple products. For Apple users, you really can't get better than this!

Some precautions to note would be that credit cards, hotel cards, or similar products with magnetic strips or RFID chips should not be placed near the magnets, as they may be damaged. Furthermore, it may be noted that the MagSafe charger may leave an imprint on your phone case, particularly leather ones.

Retailing at an affordable price (excluding add-on accessories), we can safely say that the Apple MagSafe Charger is one of the best, if not the best, option for Apple users, and will definitely optimise your charging experience.

Best for Functions: Google Pixel Stand

Minimalism is Google's game, and the Google Pixel Stand is no different. With a simple white design, the Google Pixel Stand could easily just be your regular phone stand - except that it comes with a whole host of functions.

Firstly, something that sets the Google Pixel Stand apart from the others is its ability to function as a smart assistant once plugged in. Once your phone is docked on the Google Pixel Stand, Assistant functions are automatically switched on and it can act as a pseudo-Google Home Hub. Pretty cool, huh? In particular, for the Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL, the gesture controls implemented in these two devices make it especially easy to make use of this phone-and-stand pairing to carry out whatever commands you'd like.

Another interesting feature would be that of the Sunrise Alarm, which pops up when you dock your phone on the Google Pixel Stand. We've all experienced being violently woken up by the shrill ring of our alarm clocks and having to shuffle disgruntled and groggy to wash our faces. The Sunrise Alarm function allows your screen to go black when you go to bed and naturally brighten to fill the room with soothing yellow light as you wake, providing you with a much more pleasant morning experience.

However, some points to note would be that the Google Pixel Stand charges at 10W. While this is still a reasonable charging speed, some users might prefer other alternatives, which may go up to 15W. Furthermore, the Google Pixel Stand is definitely pricier than other wireless chargers in the scene. Hence, if price is a concern, you might like to further deliberate.

Nevertheless, the Google Pixel Stand offers a brilliant array of functions, and definitely pushes the limits of what can be done with a wireless charging stand.

Best for Budget: Anker PowerWave Base Pad

Anker is well-known for its excellent product releases, and the Anker PowerWave Base Pad is no different. Although it is slightly larger than its typical wireless charger counterparts, this ensures that you can see at a glance whether your mobile phone is well-aligned to the charging, preventing those annoying situations where you have to poke at your phone for a good few seconds to get that "sweet spot".

The Anker PowerWave Base Pad makes use of Qi wireless charging, and can charge at a speed of up to 10W. However, while the Anker PowerWave Base Pad comes with a micro USB cable, it does not come with a power adapter. In order to make use of its quick charging capabilities, you will need to purchase a Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 wall charger as well. 

You might also be wondering why the Anker PowerWave Base Pad is bulkier than expected. Well, this is because wireless chargers tend to heat up quickly, compromising the quality of charge as well as phone battery life. To compensate for this, Anker has built-in vents into the PowerWave Base Pad to dissipate heat and keep your mobile phone in tip-top condition.

Finally, the Anker PowerWave Base Pad retails at a very affordable price. Hence, for how well it works at its price, you definitely can't go wrong with this purchase!

Best for Beginners: Nomad Base Station Pro

Nomad Base Station Pro

The Nomad Base Station Pro introduces a different type of wireless charging - namely, Aira FreePower wireless charging.

What exactly is Aira FreePower wireless charging? Well, in a nutshell, this technology makes use of multiple coils embedded in a circuit board. How this affects the Nomad Base Station Pro would be that it makes the device much thinner, with the ability to charge multiple devices at once, and also reduces the amount of heat produced. Due to its in-built algorithms, the Nomad Base Station Pro can detect any device in any orientation once its placed onto the charger, ensuring that there's no fiddling around to find that "sweet spot". For beginners, this is especially useful, as it means you can just leave your devices on the Nomad Base Station Pro and go about your day without worry.

Design-wise, the Nomad Base Station Pro is a sleek, elegant-looking device. With an aluminium base and a leather charging pad, the Nomad Base Station Pro wouldn't look out of place at all in an office. Furthermore, the Base Station Pro comes with a USB-C cable, a 30W USB-C power adapter, and interchangeable plugs for use in different countries. Every aspect is well-thought-out, and ensures that you will be able to use the Nomad Base Station Pro with ease.

However, a potential downside would be that the Nomad Base Station Pro only offers a 5W charging speed - significantly lower than other wireless chargers on the market. However, for Apple users, the Nomad Base Station Pro is able to charge up to 7.5W.

Finally, while the Nomad Base Station Pro is definitely beginner-friendly, its price may be one of contention. With its high price point, despite its ease of functionality, potential users might want to take into consideration their budget. Nevertheless, the Nomad Base Station Pro is an excellent choice for those looking for a fuss-free wireless charging experience.
