Is it supposed to be faster than the charger plugged in directly? My 7 takes that long to charge if not a little longer using the oem charger. And that battery is quite smaller
That's faster than I thought it would be.
Use the iPad block. It'll charge a lot faster.
Both are very slow. Would make sense to just plug in unless at work or something and you always want to have it charging without having to mess with cables
No, it's not... and that's why I look at it as more of a convenience than anything else.
I come home from work and put it on the charger... later on in the evening it's full. What's cool about wireless charging is in the 2 weeks I've had the phone I've only used the plug charger once.
Saves wear and tear on the lightning port ya know...
Once iOS 11.1 is released, the iPhone will charge about 50% faster. It'll go from a 5W charger to a 7.5W charger.
It should charge *around* as fast as a 12W charger would charge it.
How can a 7.5W charger charge as fast as a 12W charger?
If the 7.5W is 50% faster than the 5W, shouldn't the 12W be 60% faster then the 7.5W?
The 11.1 update should shave maybe 1 hour off of the charging time. Tbh the only wireless pad I have is on my bedside cabinet and 3-4hrs is plenty of time for an overnight charge.
From my testing (which, granted, I could be misremembering), the iPhone draws about 8w-9w from a 12w charger. Pretty close to the 7.5w it’ll draw wirelessly.
(I really need to test this again. For science. I’ll post results when done.)
Honestly wireless charging is pointless in my opinion. For one thing you really can’t use your phone while it’s charging and if you do use it while it’s on the pad it’s awkward. Who cares if it takes 4 hours. The only reason I could see wireless charging being used in my case is overnight which doesn’t matter if it’s 4 hours it will still be fully charged when I wake up. Not that hard to plug in a cable before you go to bed and have a full charge that easily lasts you the whole day and even 2 days with the 8 Plus.
It's more for the convince in Airport's, coffee shops, and furniture. Rather than having a wire you can charge your phone in most places. Lot of cars have a nice wireless charging mat now too and it's all universal.
I thought it was WIRELESS charging? I see CORDS!!!!
I think it’s more of a convenience when it comes to fumbling around, putting it on a dock or plugging it in. It’s not fast, but often I will use my phone, set it on the wireless charger (instead of putting it on my night stand) let it charge a bit and then use it again.
Well apparently for some people it is a big deal and very hard for them to plug a simple cable into their phones
belkin 7.5 watt. So if it was usb-c 29watt..it should super fast then.
The Iphone 8/8Plus uses the older 1.1 Qi wireless charging standard, so I highly doubt it on an increase that high.
If I need speed I use my iPad charger.
If time is not an issue, like during sleep, I use my Samsung wireless charger.
This video doesn’t remotely concern me.
People are subjective. Not everybody is you. For some, the video may concern them.
They are also using 2 different chargers which adds variables to the experiment.
They should have been timed on the same charger.
The wireless charging is nice gimmick, nothing more.
It's nice idea to get a bit of battery while the phone not in use, but you still need to connect the ‘charging plate’ with a cable to the wall.. and it's not as fast as i hoped. On top of that, i can't to use the ‘charging plate’ while the phone resting on living room table (90% of the time its where it 'sits' while i'm in the house) because i don’t want to stretch electric cables all over the house. The only place i can hide the cable nicely would be on the office table.
For now it's useless for me. Hopefully in the future they'll have real wireless charging (like WiFi), or at least wireless charging plate.
Huh? The Note took 2 hours and 41 minutes -- while the iPhone took 3 hours and 54 minutes.
You make it sound as if there wasn't much of a difference.
Considering that the iPhone 8Plus can charge to 0-100% in less than 2 hours with a 12W brick, yes, both are very slow. The Note can charge faster than 2hr41min hardwired.

Wireless charging is more convenient (IN MY OPINION) for overnight charging. I have an 8+, so I never need charge during the day. The Samsung wireless charger was $30 on Amazon, including the power brick. Cheaper than an extra Apple charger, if someone is buying a new one. I have my USB-C/29W combo if I need a faster charge (never been an issue on my iPhone).
As Mlrollin91 said, I was just stating that both wireless charge options are slow compared to using a cable.
