Apple embraced NFC with their contactless payment system on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but there’s one wireless standard that they’re still refusing to support: Qi wireless charging. If you’re looking for an easy way to add this helpful ability to your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, then we have just the thing for you: a Qi Wireless Charging Receiver.
No more messy cables
The advantage of wireless charging is that you avoid the hassle and clutter of cables. Instead of needing to plug a cable every time you want to charge and remove it when you’re done, all you need to do is place your iPhone on your Qi wireless charging pad and everything will happen automatically.
Easy to install
The Wireless Charging Receiver is easy to install and works well with any case. All you need to do is plug one end into the Lightning cable, then fold the charging receiver behind your iPhone. Next, place your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus into its case, with the wireless charging coil inside. The best iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus cases are those with an opaque back, so the wireless charging receiver is hidden from view.
You’ll get the convenience of wireless charging, without any modifications to the internals of your iPhone. If you want to switch to traditional wired charging at any time, just unplug the charging coil to free up your Lightning port.

There are two types of phones in the world: phones with Qi wireless charging built in, and those without. Thankfully though, you can add wireless charging pretty easily. Just pick up a Qi wireless adapter that’ll sit behind your phone, inside your case, and you’ll get the benefits of wireless charging without needing a special case.
There are two different kinds of wireless charging adapters available, depending on the orientation of your phone’s microUSB port. If your microUSB port has the wide side at the bottom and the narrow side at the top, you’ll need the standard version. If it’s the opposite – wide top, narrow bottom – then you’ll need the inverted version.
The OnePlus One requires an inverted connector. Other phones compatible with the Type B include the Google Nexus 5, the HTC One M7 and M8, and almost every other HTC smartphone. For a full list, see the compatibility tab on the inverted version product page.
Almost all other phones use a standard orientation microUSB port, including nearly all Samsung, Sony, Motorola and LG phones. For the full list (and it’s a long one!) see the compatibility tab on the Standard version product page.

Here’s something new: a Qi wireless charging enabled desk lamp called the Aircharge Koncept. The idea is quite sound; replacing two dedicated devices with a single, beautiful device. And the Koncept is nothing if not gorgeous, with a sleek modern design that fits rather nicely with the smartphone that’ll be nestling on top of it.
The Koncept is made up of three hinges, allowing light to be distributed wherever you like. The LEDs used here provide high-efficiency energy, producing light without much heat or other waste.
The wireless charging follows the Qi standard, meaning you’ll have instant compatibility with a range of phones from Google and Nokia which have wireless charging built in. You can also add wireless charging to most phones, including iPhones, Samsung Galaxy devices, Sony phones and some additional Nokia Lumias. For more information, visit our Wireless Charging Guide.
The Koncept is a pretty cool concept, don’t you think? It’s available for pre-order right now from Mobile Fun.

Wireless charging is awesome. iPhones are awesome. Let’s combine these two awesome things with one more awesome thing: a Qi Wireless Charging Receiver for the iPhone 5S, 5C and 5.
The ‘Wireless Charging Receiver’ sounds kind of complicated, but it’s really not. It’s just a little bit of coiled wire, sitting in a sealed plastic strip with a Lightning connector on the end. Once you plug this into the iPhone’s Lightning port, you can wirelessly charge your iPhone.
Of course, just having a random packet of coiled wired attached to your iPhone isn’t ideal. So what you can do is plug it in, then fold it behind the phone (next to the Apple logo on the back). Then you can put on a case of your choice, hiding the cable away but keeping your wireless charging capabilities.
This is a really nice way of doing things, because you can choose a case you like (or already own!) instead of being forced to choose a specific wireless charging case. And when you want to use the Lightning port, it’s simple to unplug the adapter and plug it back in when you’re done.
Of course, for wireless charging to work you do need a source of wireless power. This adapter and all of our charging pads are on the Qi standard, so any of these wireless charging pads will do the trick. You can find flat pads for your bedside table, stands for your desk and car holders for your automobile. It’s a pretty comprehensive system and it works well.

Wireless charging is really hitting its stride, with more phones and accessories appearing all the time. Today we’re going to have a look at five of the best Qi wireless charging pads on the market. If you want to know more about how wireless charging works, check out our Guide to Wireless Charging.
5. Adata Elite CE700 Qi Wireless Charging Stand
ADATA are well known for their line of dependable hard drives and accessories, but they’re also dipping their toes in the emerging wireless charging market. Their first Qi wireless charging pad has a cool folding design, allowing for both stand and pad modes.
4. Trident Qi Wireless Charging Cup Holder
The Trident Qi Cup Holder is a novel idea, transforming the cupholders found in pretty much every car into a safe space for your charging smartphone. The Cup Holder works as well on a desk as in cars, too. A secondary USB port means that you can charge other devices even if they don’t have Qi wireless charging capabilities.
3. Qi Wireless Charger (with EU plug)
This is the least expensive wireless charging pad on Mobile Fun at the moment. It comes with a European plug, but you can easily use it with any existing UK AC adapter. The pad is simple but effective, with a no-frills monochrome design.
2. Qi-Tone Alarm Clock Bluetooth Speaker with Qi Charging
This all-in-one device combines a Bluetooth speaker, an alarm clock, a temperature sensor and – yes – a wireless charger. It’s an ideal bedside companion, wirelessly charging your phone while you sleep. The speakers inside are surprisingly loud, and the LED display is nicely visible at night without being too bright.
1. Tylt Vu Qu Wireless Charging Stand
The Tylt is definitely the most stylish Qi wireless charger on the market, with an elegant slim design that really stands out. You phone will sit at a comfortable angle on the charger, allowing you to see incoming notifications or watch a film while you’re charging. A premium Qi wireless charger for the style-conscious connoisseur.
