The new Apple iPhone 12 series phones support fast wireless charging up to 15-watts. Currently, only the Apple Magsafe Wireless Charger can charge the iPhone 12 series phones at fastest possible 15-watts and you still need to buy a USB-C AC adapter for the Magsafe Charger separately – or you can get a dual USB-C port adapter for fastest charging of both the iPhone 12 and the Magsafe Charger.

However, if the cost of MagSafe Charger + USB-C adapter seems a bit high, then there are lower-cost good quality wireless chargers from Anker and other reputed vendors that will charge your iPhone 12 at 7.5 watts – perfect to fully charge the phone from empty in 3-4 hours in the night, or to keep the phone constantly charged at your desk.

We prefer wireless chargers that come with an AC adapter as a finding an exactly compatible AC adapter is an additional expense. We have selected our top picks based on charging performance/speed, build quality, warranty/service support, ability to charge devices reliably in any orientation and with the case on.
