Wireless charging adapters for iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus

If you’d rather add wireless charging to your iPhone only when you need it, you could also try the aircharge, a Lightning Wireless Charging Receiver. The way it works is pretty simple — it plugs into your iPhone via the Lightning port, and then provides charge whenever it’s placed onto a charging pad.

That makes it somewhat of a hybrid solution — it isn’t wholly wireless, but it does deliver the primary advantage of wireless charging: you can start charging your phone, pick it up and use it for a bit, and put it down to resume charging, all without plugging or unplugging a cable. On the other hand, it won’t allow you to use Lightning headphones and charge your iPhone 7 at the same time, which is a shame.

You can also pick up aircharge wireless charging cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These cases have a Qi charging coil built right into them, so all you’ll need to do is put on the case, then put the case onto a Qi wireless charging pad (see below!).

Once you’ve got your charging adapter installed, all you need is a Qi wireless charging pad.

Any Qi charging pad from any manufacturer should work just fine with the cases and adapters we’ve highlighted above because they all support the same Qi standard. You can get flat charging pads, angled ones, light ones and stylish ones. All will work equally well, so choose your favourite!

  2. I am using xvida wireless charging system in my car and it is absolutely awesome. It is magnetic what makes it very convenient, charging speed is same as with original cable. The only problem is a micro USB cable which stopped working after few months so now I am using another more durable cable.

  3. I have a magnetic air vent holder for my phone when I am driving in my car… will this charger interfere with that magnetic I have to install in order for it to stay on the mount?

  4. I have a wireless receiver for my iPhone 5 and recently upgraded to the iPhone 7. Will it work on my new phone?

  5. i have a wireless charging station from ikea on my nightstand, if i were to buy just the adapter would it work with the station i already have?
