Hmm, then it could just simply be coincidence and it wasn't the fault of the Dollarama one. I will get her to try it on the new iPhone they give her, if it breaks again, we know the culprit
I'm not sure what makes one qi pad better than another one but I have used the cheapest ones I could find for a nexus 4, nexus 5, Samsung s7, Samsung s8, and nexus 7 with no problems so far. Maybe the iPhone X has an issue with wireless charging? I'm not sure.

Stumbled on that in Dollorama this weekend and remembered I had a dead tablet laying in my closet

Guess what, why Nexus 7 is now revived to life ! It also confirmed the issue was the micro-USB port not working.

Thanks OP :)

I've never been interested in Qi-charging my devices but at $4 couldn't pass this up.

Charging my iPhone with this at the moment, I can confirm that it works and gets the phone slightly warm - 37c (was at 32c when it started charging).

The max current that the iPhone shows it can pull from this charger is 7.7W, it consistently pulled at least 5.5W throughout charging when the screen was on and went up to 7.4W when the screen was off.

I'd actually negate whats written on the box and classify this as a fast charger for the iPhone OP @Trance. Great bargain imo, will buy a couple more to put around the house.

I won't be using these to charge my iPhone but will probably use it to charge the AirPods when they come out

I don't really get the whole wireless charging thing. It's cool technology, but are we just too lazy to plug your phone in?

It could be useful, let say, integrated under a table?
I put a plug in my charging port to avoid the occasional moisture warning so wireless charging helps.

Recently, I was staying at a hotel in Singapore that had wireless charging pads integrated into the bedside tables.

My cable is too short to just pick up and look at the phone and put it back.
I just discovered the benefits of wireless charging over the weekend. I see a notification, pick it up while lying in bed and then put phone back on table and it charges . Changed my life.

And the 7.5W charges pretty fast.

You won’t wear out the socket on the phone as quickly
if you mostly use wireless charging.
