[Amazon.ca] Anker Wireless Charger (10W Capable) $16

Please note this does not come with a charger.
If you want higher speeds, make sure you have a compatible AC charger.

Make sure to click "Apply CAD10.00 coupon" to get this promo.

Compared to the Samsung OEM or Apple ones, this is pretty risk-free if you wanted to try it.

For flagships, what is the max wattage for wireless charging typically? Say iphone 11 pro, pixel 4, s10... I thought it was higher than 10w?

What does this mean exactly? A phone charger that does not come with a charger?
I see no AC adapter, what do one needs to make this work?
Since this would not work as is out of the box not sure it is much of a deal.

Would this work with a Pixel 3a?
OP and Amazon ad means AC adapter/wall plug is not included. You would have to buy a fast AC adapter to use this Anker charge pad.

It seems like after iOS 13.1 most wireless chargers will only able to charge iPhones max at 5W. Only some of them can do 7.5 W like Benkin.
Also Anker had an upgraded version of this charger.

You don't need to buy a cable - it comes with a cable. You don't necessarily need a plug either if you have something you can plug the USB end into. Many power bars have a USB port on them now, or for example, I have mine plugged into a USB port on my Thunderbolt dock for my laptop.

For most people that don't know the difference between wall plug chargers (ie. Dollar store ones vs Qualcomm quickcharge ones), this product is probably not for you.

Essentially this is a wireless charging pad equivalent to Samsung's fast charging pad. (~$50 USD)

People look for advice on products all the time and simply brushing them off as people who the product is not fit for is not helping anyone, these aren't obscure products that very few people will have any use for.

I believe only Note10+ supports 15W rate using the official Samsung charger. All other Android phones will be 5W-12W depending on the model.

Yeah. Only one phone can be charged at a time and I need to have a fast usb charging plug in order to use it. Considering that I can fast charge my phone with the manufacturer provided charger why should I pay $15 + tax for this?

Using the upgraded one from anker to fast charge my galaxy s10 plus with case on https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07THHQMHM/ref=emc_b_5_mob_t

Does not come with the actual power adapter, just the charging pad and USB cable. I used the adapter from a BLU phone that was fast charge capable. From my understanding as long as you have a power adapter that mentions 9V-2A you should have no issues with wireless fast charging with certain phones. Also not the input for this is micro USB. The cable that comes with this is microusb to full size USB.

Overall very satisfied with the purchase and fast charging without the need to be plugged in.

The only thing this provides is convenience. If you are constantly on the go, you could see a minor benefit. But if this is just for the bedside, you probably won't see any benefit.

That's not true, USB ports in phones are very prone to failure so this saves a lot of stress on the port.
