Three heat levels to kill your phone's battery: 5W, 7.5W and 10W.

Wireless charging is highly inefficient, if plugging in a Type-C cable is too much trouble, get those magnetic adapters/cable that snaps in place.

7.5W

"Wirelessly fast charges your Qi-compatible Android phone at up to 10W, or iPhone (iPhone 8 and above) at up to 7.5W (iOS version < 13.1)."
from https://www.aukey.com/products/10w-wireless-charger

"There are many Qi-certified chargers available in the market that charge an iPhone with the latest version of iOS at rates up to 7.5 watts."

Sorry i meant for the iPhone X itself, not related to this product, is 7.5 the max? Or is it capable of getting charged faster?

I have been using my wireless charger pad for my s10 for 1.5 years and the battery feels the same as it did in the first day.

The same here. I used old 5 Watt charger with Samsung S8 more then 3 years. The battery level is about 85% now. The phone is still usable for whole day.

Now I use Pixel 4XL for a year and its battery is like new (98%).

I've plugged my phone exactly 0 times since I bought it thanks to wireless charging

Very efficient for me

Plugging a cable in and out just wears the charge port out

I got the s9 when the s10 launched. I've been usb c fast charging it minimum once a day for the 1.75 years I've had it and my battery is toast. Hoping to replace it when stores open back up in spring.

I would argue that it's not the method (usb c vs qi) that causes degradation, I think it's the speed at which you're charging.

Yes, and the phone is supposed to slow down the charging when it becomes too hot. I always left my phone on fast charging on the Q3.0 charger.

Why do you care about wearing the charge port out when you don't even use the charge port?

Wireless charging is at best 70% efficient, so if it charges at 10W, about 15W is being used and 5W is wasted as heat.

It's true that if you use a cable and fast charging, that would also deteriorate the battery faster.
I use regular charge rate and keep my phone between 40-80% to prolong battery life.

You should post the deal.
That looks pretty darn nice for a standing wireless charger IMO and the price is sweet too. Though they may not necessarily work with a phone like 12 pro max (I'm now using a lie-flat wireless charger because of that issue)

As for people arguing about battery life degradation - charging speed, charge cycles are charge prior to charging are amongst the many reasons why batteries wear out.
Wireless charging isn't as efficient as wired charging? Yes, but it's slow enough that it won't degrade batteries any faster than wired charging if that.
Is there heat generated during charging? Yes, you cannot escape that irrespective of the charging method you use.
Does it matter? Not really, depends on your particular use case or if you own a galaxy s7.
