I bumped into this article/review from the New York Magazine today: Anker PowerWave Wireless Charger David Pogue Review 2019 | The Strategist
It has quite a strong title:
I Hated All Wireless Chargers Until I Found Anker’s Fast-Charging Stand
The review is based on a middle-range model, which doesn’t comes with the power brick, but it’s interesting to notice how the form-factor was a game-changer for that particular journalist. Interestintly enough, I’ve been considering the same model for my work office!
If you have a Qi-enabled phone and haven’t jumped on the wireless charging yet, I’ll tell you this: just do it. Some people might tell you it’s better to have a 6-foot long cable so you can actually use the phone while it’s charging, but unless you absolutely need your phone in your hands at all times, a wireless charger in your table is the way to go. You can quickly take it off the charger to answer a message or check something, and put it back to resume charging. I have a pad at my bedside table and love it - unlike the author, I don’t have the need to see the screen while I’m lying in bed. But the stand seems to me to be perfect on an office table, so you can see notifications coming through and decide weather to pick the phone up or not.
