If you or someone you're shopping for has a newer iPhone model or an Android smartphone like the Galaxy Note 9 or Pixel 3, they come with wireless charging capabilities.

Unfortunately, unlike with iPhones and Android devices, retailers don't typically carry an abundance of wireless charger deals in their Black Friday catalogs. Most of the stores that do tend to carry just one discount. However, once you see all the available deals listed out below, you'll see you have plenty of options when it comes to saving money on a quality wireless charger.
If you're interested in a wide range of deals, look no further than Amazon, which has sales starting now. The online retailer has the most deals out of any store on this list. While many of Amazon's wireless charger deals aren't substantial, you might just find something that works for your budget.
- $30 off Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad (was $59.99, sale $29.99)
- $6.20 off Anker PowerWave Fast Wireless Charger Stand (was $29.99, sale $23.79)
Those are a few good ones. But remember that some of these are Lightning deals, so they might expire soon. Here's a few more that are on sale. No matter what you end up choosing, make sure they are Qi-certified before buying.

Best Buy isn't offering much by Amazon's standards. That being said, you can save a hefty amount on a 10-watt Tzumi HyperCharge wireless charging pad (Qi-certified). The sale is online from Nov. 22 to Nov. 24, and in stores from 5 p.m. local time on Nov. 22 to 10 p.m. on Nov. 24.
- $25 off Tzumi 10-Watt HyperCharge (was $39.99, sale $14.99)
If you like Samsung's particular brand of Qi-certified wireless chargers, the company now has three early Black Friday deals that you can take advantage of right now. Save up to $30 on one wireless charger or $60 on a two-packs. These, as well as any other Samsung holiday deals you might find, last from now until Nov. 29.

Sprint does list a Qi-certified Samsung wireless charger 2-pack on its Black Friday sale site. That being said, it isn't clear how much you'll save, as Sprint seems to only list the retail price currently, but it seems like it might only be slashed from $89.99 to $79.99, but it could end up being better than that. The sale last from Nov. 21 to Nov. 22.
- $10 off Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad 2-Pack (was $89.99, sale $79.99)
Just like Best Buy and Sprint, Target has just one deal on wireless chargers. If you've had your eye on a Belkin Qi-certified charger, however, you'll enjoy this discount; Target is reducing the price of select Belkin chargers (wireless included) by 30%. While you can't browse the chargers available now, check back on Black Friday to make your purchase.
Deals start from 12:01 am PT online for REDcard holders on Nov. 21 and for everyone else 24 hours later. In stores, it starts at 7 a.m. local time on Nov. 23 to the end of Nov. 25.
- 30% off Belkin Wireless Chargers
Finally, we have Walmart. The company features two deals in its Black Friday ad, and like Best Buy, Walmart offers a deal on Tzumi, but instead of a wireless charging pad, you get a discount on a wireless charging lamp (Qi-certified). That's definitely one of the more unique chargers on this list. This deal is valid starting online on Nov. 21, at 10 p.m. ET or in stores Nov. 22, at 6 p.m. local time. It lasts until the end of Nov. 23.
The ONN (Qi-certified) charger is in stores only, so that'd be Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. local time until the end of Nov. 25.
