Hi, I want to get into the wireless charging game while I wait for my upgrade to come around (August) but wasn’t sure if these types of products are fully compatible with Anker’s Wireess Charging Stand(s) and Pad(s).
If this is no good. What other solution would work with my iPhone 7 Plus?
[iPhone Qi Receiver, CHOETECH Ultra Thin Wireless Charging Qi Receiver Wireless Charging Receiver Patch Module Chip for iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 5/5s/5c IOS Receiver] (https://www.amazon.co.uk/do/B01L1WOKD8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_u0XwAbY6G8RS9)
I can say with confidence that most wireless pads, as long as they are Qi enabled will charge and work. I have used and tested a handful of different brands and found that almost all worked…but here is what you may not like, most of them are also finicky about how they are placed on a wireless charging pad. If it wasn’t set just right it would take a lot longer to charge, and then you also have to deal with heat buildup.
In my opinion you are better off getting a qi enabled charging case or get a phone already provisi I need for wireless charging
I did see some cases too. They were slightly more expensive but no worries there. Just want to get into the market and have some thing I can use and test with too.
I know there will be variations with products built with wireless charging integrated into the device but there are also lots who are on older gadge like me.
So just want to get the right set up really. So any info is helpful xx
I would be worried about using such an adapter from an unknown company. I’ve read about problems ranging from innocuous simply not working or stop working after a couple of weeks, to dangerous overheating, including melting the plug.
Whatever solution you go with, mind the manufacturer, and don’t be cheap. You wouldn’t want your $500+ phone damaged by a $10 adapter.
Or just wait. August won’t take long to be here.
I have thought of that. I just looked and that was the first thing on the page so just using it for the idea really. Would definitely use better quality parts/case if I do go down this route
I use it on my secondary iPhone that I use for work, it’s good and work well, but the most annoying thing is that if you have low battery and need to recharge faster (it will be happen very often) you need to pull of the case and the adapter for recharge trough cable.
I can see that scenario happening but mostly it would be on the stand all day in work so shouldn’t happen that often. Maybe that’s where it would be easier with a case option instead of the charging panel
@Oggyboy have a read through this article Wireless charging
The link is not working buddy.
Sorry about that, fixed now. Try it again
Cheers dude. They have discontinued the adaptor on the page but cases are still available for £40
Will keep a good look out and get something soon. Cheers for your thoughts everyone
Welcome, I saw the adapter available online but you have to search for it.
Definitely stay away from the cheap charging pads, I brought one very similar to the photo you posted and was testing it on my iPhone 7 as an experiment and within a couple of minutes the pad was very hot.
I’d definitely sit it out and wait until August most networks let you upgrade a month early so you might only be waiting until July mate. @Oggyboy
Cheers. I’m not gonna jump in and grateful to everyone’s advice.
If I wait until August I will probably wait until September when the newer iPhone comes out. We’ll see what happens
Before you know it, it’ll be the iPhone 20
Hi @Oggyboy, please be assured that Anker wireless charger is compatible with all Qi-enabled devices, so if the iPhone 7 Qi receiver works, then our wireless charger should be able to charge your iPhone 7(with Qi receiver) at 5W.
Thank you @AnkerSupport
I’m not after super fast charging but want to get something to tide me over and get into the game
Dunno if it’s on your PowerUser page @Oggyboy but there is a half price code for a PowerPort Wireless on there at the moment.
Hiya @Macgyver15 I can see it but will wait until I get a case or charging panel sorted first
Cheers for the headup though
