More and more phone manufacturers are shipping this year's newest flagships without a charger included in the box, no matter how much they cost upfront. Plenty of us have enough AC adapters lying around to get by, but if you'd rather use this opportunity to make the jump to wireless charging, Anker has you covered. With today's Amazon Deal of the Day, you can save big on some of Anker's best wireless charging accessories.

Over the past few years, wireless charging has become pretty ubiquitous; even some bargain-bin true wireless earbuds support it. Given that, it's entirely possible you have several wireless charging-compatible devices floating around your home right now. If you want to charge them all at once, a multi-device wireless charger could be just what you need. The Artellia Monno, recently funded on Kickstarter, is a sleek and competent charging pad that can wirelessly top up three devices at a time. During its campaign, it was available for $79, but it's projected to cost $129 at retail — a pretty penny for a third-party charger.
Wireless charging isn't quite as convenient as it sounds. It still needs the phone to be placed in a dock or on a mat, or in the case of Apple's new MagSafe solution, basically tethered to a cable. However, Xiaomi claims to have developed a new charging technology that can wirelessly charge a phone over the air, which would truly be a game-changer.
Google released the Pixel Stand in 2018, alongside the first Pixels with wireless charging (the 3 and 3 XL). It has gone on sale a few times since then, but now you can get one for just $53 from Amazon. That's a savings of $26 from the usual price.
Wireless charging is certainly handy, and it's also becoming more widespread. Heck, even OnePlus phones have wireless charging now. Right now, Amazon is offering up a selection of Anker charging solutions for up to 44% off as part of its Deal of the Day — including wireless chargers, wall chargers, and even a power strip.
Looking to pick up a sleek Qi wireless charging pad that can fill your phone up pretty fast? Aukey has one that can bring up to 15W to your phone (depending on model and wall charger) and it's on sale with promo code for more than half off!
Wireless chargers come in several shapes and sizes over the years, from stands to pucks and even orbs, but the mechanics behind how they work can make them kind of a pain. Positioning needs to be just so, or the coil on your gadget won't line up with the coil in the charger, and nothing happens. Multi-coil chargers have been a thing for a while, but the new Zens Liberty steps things up drastically, with sixteen coils stacked and staggered across its face. You can pretty much just dump your phone wherever, and it'll charge. It even looks pretty dang snazzy if you opt for the glass-topped version, but you'll pay €199.99 (around $215 right now) for that privilege.
If you've been spending more time at home lately, you may have started to notice gaps in your home charging setup. Whether you're perfecting your sourdough in the kitchen or improvising a new space to work from home, a well-placed wireless charger is a perfect way to ensure you'll always have a full battery. Right now, you can grab a two-pack of Anker's PowerWave wireless charging stands for only $25.49 at Amazon, saving yourself $7.50 off the MSRP.
After months of hype and more than a few leaks, OnePlus finally unveiled its latest smartphones at a live-streamed online-only event today. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are the company’s most advanced ever phones, with the Pro model introducing a couple of long-awaited features in wireless charging and an IP rating.
Logitech probably isn't the first name that comes to mind when it comes to charging accessories, though the company has dabbled with wireless docks in the past. Today Logitech announced its new series of 'POWERED' charging accessories, but they're a bit pricey.
