Update: the PowerPort Wireless 5 Pad is now available for order on
Amazon for $24. In stock November 10.
As promised, Anker’s upgraded wireless chargers have arrived. This time around, it appears to be a 5W charger with a micro USB port. Anker claims it charges 10% faster than its competitors.
The new PowerPort Wireless 5 is also very slim and features an LED indicator light.
It is not yet available on
Amazon, but when it is, I will be sure to update this post and fill you in on the price!
Would you consider buying a 5W wireless charger?
Hmm, interesting because this one is 10 watt wireless charging
Edit: I see it only does 10 watt if you use a fast charge plug
Right on time for those iPhone X owners !
Very good looking charger.
While it looks good, to me it’s too similar to what Samsung currently offers
Maybe, but what does Samsung charge for such a charger? I guess it’s more expensive than Anker’s
i want a wireless stand from Anker similar to this please
10w dual coil.
It is only 5W output, though.
Thats a start for those looking for one, I’m sure 10 watt wouldn’t be all that much harder to make
Who will be ordering
one for $24?
I may order one for my wife for christmas, this way she can have her phone standing and charging while listening to music at night
I may purchase one soon
I believe the max wireless charge speed on Iphone x/8 is 5v 7.5watt. So I’m not sure how it would charge 10% faster with less wattage but I will do some comparisons when I receive mine. This pad is perfect for people with older Android’s that do not support fast wireless charging. It looks pretty sleek and doesn’t have too many annoying leds that light up your bedroom like some other models.
@joshuad11 is that a real picture or a Photoshop? I have never seen an anker QI standup. I would like to see a stand up multi coil fast charge pad as well I’m sure Anker is working on one.
I guess the iPhone x doesn’t support 7.5watt wireless charging yet but will when apple updates ios… Yay apple
A must buy with a phone supporting wireless charging
that link shows alexa vehicle charger
thanks for pointing that out. Fixed now
It’s great! I got one and love it for the iPhone 8, charges right through an otter box commuter
5 watt vs 7.5 only makes the slightest difference in QI charge speed.
The iOS 11.2 betas include support for faster 7.5 watt wireless charging; the current public releases of iOS 11 limit iPhone 8 and iPhone X to 5W Qi wireless charging only. However, what is the practical impact of this change? Early testing shows...
