The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are very compact despite having a large display. Thus the battery of these devices runs out faster than usual. So you might need to charge your device frequently. That doesn’t mean that you can’t use your phone comfortably.
Because Google has implemented wireless charging on the Pixel 3 series. It is the first Pixel phone on which wireless charging is supported natively. Google also introduced the ‘Pixel Stand’ — their official wireless charging pad for Pixel 3 series not so long ago. However, there are other options available on the market as well.
In this article, we will talk about all the best wireless charging pads for the Google Pixel 3 Series. So, here we go…
- Google Pixel Stand:
If you don't want the official wireless charging pad for your Google Pixel 3 then you would have to use this one. The Google Pixel Stand is specially designed for the Pixel 3 series. It has a 10W output. Besides that, it comes with an advanced docked mode which is very unique. It will cost you about $79 at this point.
- Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging Pad:
If you are not a fan of the officially recommend Google Pixel Stand, then you can try the Belkin BOOST UP. It is also sold by Google on the Google store. It also comes with 10W output for fast charging. Although you won’t have the docked mode feature on this it comes with a grippy textured body. So your phone will not slip off the charger easily.
- Samsung Fast Charge (Convertible):
This charge is another popular one available on the market. One of the most interesting features of this charger is that it is convertible. You can either lay your phone to charge it or you can set it up at an angle as well. The only problem with this charger is that it is not capable of charging your Pixel 3 at 10W. Rather, it is perfect for 5W Qi charging.
- Anker PowerWave:
If you are looking for a cheaper option, then the PowerWave is there for you. It is also capable of only 5W output. But it is half the price of the Google Pixel Stand. The only issue with this charger is that it doesn’t come with a power brick. Other than that, it is good enough as a cheap option.
- iOttie iON Wireless Mini Fast Charging Pad:
This is the cheapest charger of the bunch. It is also a 5W charger. The iOttie wireless charger comes fabric style which matches to the Google Pixel 3. That is why it has become very popular.
- Mophie Charge Stream Powerstation:
When it comes to wireless charging, it is easy to say that there is still a wire/cable attached to the charger. So, it is not purely wireless charging. And, Mophie knows that. So they have developed a true wireless charger using a portable battery pack which is capable of charging your phone wirelessly. This charger has a 10W output when you use a cable. And, if you use the wireless function then it can only charge at 5W only.
So, you can see that there are numerous options for you. If you want fast charging then go for the chargers which come with 10W output capability. But you can also go for a 5W charger if you need a budget-friendly one. The choice is yours.
