Apple has been offering wireless charging for all its devices for some time now. All the latest iPhones from iPhone X onwards to iPhone 11 Pro have this feature and now Airpods 2 and Airpods Pro also have the same feature. As known for some time now, Apple has officially canceled the AirPower project, the wireless charging base that promised to simultaneously charge iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods, and therefore third parties must be used.
The reasons for buying a wireless charging pad are obvious. Thanks to these "platforms" it is not necessary to resort to cables and charging hubs. Even if you lose speed, you have the advantage of reducing clutter. When you buy you have to be careful what you buy because many devices are not compatible with Apple technology that allows phones to absorb up to 7.5W. The following are all compatible with this function.

The stylistically minimal design with a surface that imitates the skin. Spigen is known for producing low cost devices and accessories but with a high quality / price ratio.

BELKIN BOOST UP
Still, remaining in the field of more sophisticated (and less economical) bases we also point out the "single" Boost Up by Belkin. It supports the Qi wireless standard with a power up to 7.5W. This is in fact a "safe" product even in the event of an Apple software update in the future because it is also presented by Apple on its online trading site.

The device has an external power supply and a cooling system to improve the overall yield. Finally also MFI certified, this means that there should be no surprises whatsoever in the case of a software update of the Apple devices.

Unlike other competitors made partially of aluminum, it makes it much more solid.
Is it just these?
Obviously, no, just do a search on Amazon to find out how many wireless charging bases are compatible with the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 8. Some of these may not be certified by Apple and, therefore, their use may not be guaranteed over time, for via future and any Apple iOS updates.
