The US$54.99 GoBat MS 5K from Scosche is a great compact charger. It has a matte finish that does not show fingerprints. The MagSafe works perfectly with a noticeable click as the magnets lock the charger in place on newer iPhones. 

If the charger has not been used recently, you must press the power button to turn it on. However, if you have used it recently, there is no need to press the power button as it stays powered for a few minutes after the last use and will recognize a Qi device and automatically continue charging the device. 

While I have taken advantage of the wireless charging most frequently, it works well as a wired charger.  It is a 5000mAh bank, so it has sufficient charge to fully recharge newer iPhone twice.
