[Amazon.ca] mophie – Wireless Charge Pad – Apple Optimized – 7.5W for $59.99

Hey All,

I just got an alert for this wireless charger. This seems to be the lowest price I could find up to now.

I think this is a good option for those that don't want to risk their iPhone X's with non Apple approved chargers.

I will buy it to compare it with the Samsung Qi Fast Wireless Charging Kit I bought recently for roughly the same price.

QI is a standard not a buz word. Correct me if I am wrong but a USB connection from Samsung is the same as a USB connector from HP?

Any QI Charger should charge a QI device. It just seems like your paying extra for an Apple approved cable but in this case a Charger...

That one is rumored at $200. A bit overkill if you don't have a watch and earpods.

I have a QI charger that I bought a long time ago for my Nexus 4 (output 5V 1A). It doesn't charge the iPhone X nor the 8 (no case). The light turns on and off and phone says it's charging, but after a few moments it doesn't anymore. It's actually discharging while trying to charge.
I would also assume that all chargers should work. I just feel a bit ignorant on what happens once the phone is charged.
Also, most non-brand wireless chargers say to remove the case from the phone prior to charging. I have an Otterbox Defender case. I can't remove it on a whim.

I'm only explaining what I suspect may be a contributing factor. Demand for substitute goods would likely decrease, and Apple has a strong fanbase.
If someone is going to hold out for Apple Airpower, chances are that person will skip anything else.

I have 6 years old TYLT wireless charger and it is working with iPhone. No issue.

This model and the new belkin one are the only wireless chargers that can charge iPhones at 7.5W; all other brands charge iPhones at 5W

Stop spreading misinformation. This one charges iPhones at 7.5W, your samsung one doesn't

This RAVPower charges at 7.5W as well: https://www.amazon.ca/RAVPower-Wireless ... B07869T45C

Obviously, Apple's Airpower will also offer fast charging.

Someone I know tested the upgraded version with an iPhone X: https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Wireles ... B07869T45C
And he also tested the Belkin. He saw no difference in charging speed with the phone completely drained as starting point and returned the Belkin.

It’s a standard. Just like 802.11

do these chargers stay fairly cool?
I have the cheap insignia one from Best Buy and it seems to get fairly warm which isn't a good thing for the battery long term. I'd pay extra for one that stays cool,
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
