[Amazon Canada] Anker Qi Wireless Charging Pad - 18.99

Camel had the lowest price at 15 so this is close enough

Fast charging 10w wireless pad but doesn't come with an adapter so keep that in mind

Thanked OP for good price on a reliable brand.
Could someone recommend a charging pad that can charge 2 devices? Not fun when myself and my wife need to charge at once. I could always buy 2 separate ones, but if I had one cable for both, would be ideal.

Samsung has a dual charging pad/stand.

Does this make your phone go warm/hot? I had cheapo wireless chargers and it made my S9 hot so I stopped using those. Might pick these up if it doesn't.

Thanks OP! I don't mind the fast charging option, so this is decent. Any good recommended power adapters?

Charging power is boosted to 7.5W for iPhone, while flagship Samsung, LG, and Sony phones get a 10W fast charge.

7.5W Charge Mode: Using QC 2.0/3.0 Adapter
- iPhone X, iPhone 8 / 8 Plus

Anker charger has temperature control I believe... Remember reading that on their website specs

I had a two port Aukey wall plug that I was using with my phone so will just try that for now...

Anker IMO is the best 3rd party accessory maker on the market. If I'm buying extra chargers or cables, I don't even bother looking for OEM stuff, I just go straight to Anker. QC 2.0/3.0/USB-PD/etc. Cables are high build quality as well. I'm never disappointed. They make sure that all of their chargers and accessories have full certifications for whatever standards they are selling a product for.

The cheap wireless chargers aren't Qi certified. You'll see them say "compatible", but they haven't been certified by the wireless power consortium for Qi. They usually have shoddy build quality, cheap components, questionable performance, lack overheat and over current protection, and are risky to use. If you're buying a wireless charger you need to make sure they state it's Qi certified, and can be searched and found on https://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.com/products. If it's not listed there, don't buy it. You don't have to buy Anker, but at least make sure it's certified.

I still don't understand why so many people bought those crap wireless chargers from dollarama. Seems like a good idea to trust charging your $1000 phone on a $4, uncertified, dollarama charger.

We already went over this in that thread.

Qi certification has ZERO correlation on the quality of the actual product.
