    Wireless charging is always going to be slower.

    Turning it over might help to charge faster o_O

    90 minutes to fully charge an iPhone 8 Plus? That's not bad. Which charger is it?

    That sounds pretty good! Was expecting it to take much longer!

    hasn't this been known for a few years now? wireless loses a lot of energy in the process and your electricity bill will be higher too

    Doesn't sound like a real number to me considering it takes longer for a 0-100 charge wired.

    That actually sounds really good for wireless. It takes an hour to charge my note 8 with a fast wireless charger.

    Wow that’s really good, I thought it would be a lot slower. It’s doesnt really matter to me in the end because I just charge my phone overnight.

    OP - were you expecting wireless to charge as fast as a regular wall charger?

    Let’s just say this person is the last person on these forums I would trust with their ‘testing results’. Doesn’t even know that wireless charging is going to be much slower? And also gets a ‘result’ that would actually make it among the fastest wireless charging ever? Yeah I think not.

    Yeah this is obviously not a 1% to 100% charge as that would take 3 to 4 hours for an 8 Plus on wireless charging. What does this thread title even mean? 90 minutes to get full charge when you had 80% left or something?

    i take it put in that plates and i keep track my iphone every 30 minutes

    I was charge at 1 AM 1%

    I think folks were thinking this would be “Distance Charging” feel free to correct me though.

    It’s the technology that Rezounce has I think

    So you just flat out guessed...it's not like you even assumed that charging would be linear, if you did your unscientific results appear to average 1% battery gain per minute on charge, which would actually make more sense if you claimed 100 minutes.

    Have to agree with others here, that seems like a good amount of time considering it is wireless and it is well known to be a much slower method to charge.

    In most of the reviews it was stated that if you charge your iPhone wirelessly, it will charge 1% per 2 minutes. And it doesn't charge linearly as the last couple of % will take a lot longer.

    Obviously your phone is new and the battery needs to be calibrated, but even 40% in 40 minutes doesn't sound realistic for wireless on a Plus device. But who knows, I would love to be proven wrong.

    That’s a decent/expected time for inductive charging.

    Several reviews compared plugged and inductive charging, so the rates are fairly well-documented.

    Why are you charging it with the screen facing down?

    1. Your phone is upside down. 2. Generally wireless charging takes LONGER than a wired charger.

    Since I don’t keep my phone in my hands all day long, having a wireless charger on the desk or another table would be welcomed, not to mention on the nightstand while sleeping.

    I'm wondering though. I read on the apple site for both Mophie and Belkin wireless inductive charging that the fast wireless charging can be enabled via software update?? So probably not capable yet?? Not sure.

    Ok but on a serious note, induction charging has always been slower than wired charging through the port. And not forgetting Apple’s wireless charging only accepts 7.5W of input which is a lot lower than other phones that supports Qi wireless charging. I believe they are doing that to preserve battery longevity. iPhones have always been slow to recharge. But their batteries quite definitely lasts longer than the competition when it comes to lifespan. Provided you’ve always been charging it with the supplied 5W wall charger.
