If you’re in the market for a wireless charger during Amazon Prime Day 2018, it’s important to remember that some are far better and faster at juicing up your smartphone than others.

RavPower makes The Verge’s favorite wireless charger, the Fast Charge. It’s not the cheapest option available, but for your money, its included 24W wall charger and fast 10W output combine for a value that’s tough to beat.

We’ve worked with RavPower to make this wireless charger more affordable for Verge readers. If you enter the code VERGE034 at checkout during your next Amazon visit, you’ll pay $21.99, which is almost 50 percent less than its regular $39 price.

Even the best wireless charger isn’t without some faults. The Fast Charge only has one coil, meaning you have to carefully align your phone to get a charge. Also, your phone lies flat on this charger, which reduces readability if you want to easily peer at the screen while it charges or easily unlock the iPhone X’s Face ID.

The RavPower 7.5W Wireless Charging Stand addresses both issues with two charging coils for wireless charging that’s more foolproof. The stand also keeps your phone upright. It’s not quite as fast at charging, but those conveniences might make up the difference. This model is also being made more affordable with an exclusive coupon. Its regular $45.99 price is reduced to $25.99 with the code VERGE069 at Amazon.

Remember to keep an eye on The Verge’s main Prime Day 2018 deals post for other wireless charging options, like Samsung’s heavily discounted Fast Charge Qi Charging Pad, which is on sale for $29.99.

Update July 24th, 10:10AM ET: Updated to reflect that the exclusive codes have expired, but stay tuned for more offers for Verge readers. Thanks for reading!
