Posted several times already, and these are crap - they get 2.5 stars based on 38 reviews on Costco.ca. Charger cable from outlet > wireless charger for these is also proprietary round connector, which is crazy considering USB C or Micro USB would mean you could repair your product should that cable breka.

You're better off waiting for an Amazon deal/coupon from a reputable brand.

These are crap, has proprietary connectors, makes a hissing sound while charging and one of them just stopped working after 2 weeks. Had to return these.

Save yourself some trouble and get any wireless charger from Amazon. Like literally any standard wireless charger.

I got the one below on sale for 13$ and works like a charm. Also it's USB C

These frisbees are getting very cheap, and right now, no mainstream phone has fast enough wireless charging capacity to make the exercise worthwhile.

One of our compatriots here on RFD posted a Chinese phone with ultrafast 120W charging, 15 minutes to 80% charge. I want this from Samsung now, but I know wide scale deployment is still a little ways away as they want to avoid a Note 7 rocket-engine situation.

Since the S8, I've lived on a phone battery case.

Been using these for months without any problems. Maybe I'm lucky?

I got them last time they were on sale. No complaints and I use them daily.

I use mine daily and I love them. I'm surprised the reviews are bad. I agree that it would be better if it was usb c.

I don't understand what you guys complained about. It is not universal connector, but it is from costco. So if it is broke, you can always return it. The charger on amazon, if it is broke after 30 days, you are unlikely to get your money back.

No, usually costco will cover the warranty for the item. I don't know how long is the warranty on this charging stand, usually is one year.

Had these for a while.
Yes the connector could be better, but they work perfectly fine for me, no hissing noise or anything. For the price they are great. Surprised there are negative reviews apparently.

I've got 6 of these. No issues. The proprietary connector doesn't bother me.

Bought from Black Friday
No issue until now, but if you have big phone case with liquid in the back or finger ring, the extra space would cause no charge.

But it will be the same problem to any other wireless charger.

The electronics return policy is only for specific items. These wouldn't fall under electronics for Costco's return policy.
