Wireless charging is arguably the way of the future — and the present — now that most tech manufacturers are developing products with wireless charging formulations leading their feature lists.
While there are tons of different types of wireless phone chargers on the market — including wireless charging UV sanitizers and flat-lying charging pads — it’s hard to find one that not only fits your needs financially, but also consolidates space on your desk or nightstand. With this sentiment in mind, the folks at Anker have recently released the PowerWave 10 Stand that comes equipped with two additional rear USB ports for a 3-in-1 charging experience.

Boasting an upright charging pad, this device allows you to wirelessly charge your phone while simultaneously using it for video and phone calls.
The gadget also features multi-charging capabilities, meaning you can charge two other devices via high-speed USB-A ports located at the back of the device.
For added comfort and convenience, you can choose between charging your phone horizontally or vertically. “Whether you’re watching a video or checking your messages, you don’t need to stop charging,” the product’s description explains.
To the pleasure of several reviewers, this wireless charger is also case-friendly, meaning it can charge through “the majority of phone cases.” Translation: There’s no need to remove your case before charging.
Boasting an overall rating of 4.7 stars, this product is already a top-seller on Anker’s native website, with one reviewer particularly dubbing it the “best charger out there.”
“This is hands-down, the BEST faster charger out there! Anker products are always solid and will last a lifetime,” the five-star reviewer wrote. “It’s sleek and does its job.”
The shopper added that the silicone feet at the base of the product “help prevent it from sliding on the countertop.”
Speaking to its multi-charging function, another reviewer wrote, “It fits well at my desk and [I] can put my phone on it and charge my Fitbit and iPad all at the same time.”
The only thing shoppers seem to want to change is the function of the product’s charge indicator light that remains lit once a device is attached to the stand.
“Would prefer the charge indicator light would turn off when phone battery [is] fully charged,” one shopper wrote. However, this proved to be only a minor gripe for those who expressed this sentiment.
