    Whatever you decide to get, get one with a cooling fan.

    Many wireless chargers do NOT include AC adapter. To get fast charge (e.g., 7.5W for iPhone), you need to get a fast charge AC adapter, which typically costs more than $10.

    Some fast wireless charger includes a fan, which cools the phone while charging. Fans help your battery last longer. I recommend Anker's PowerWave fast wireless charger (also available in a pad form factor), which happens to be Amazon's Deal of the Day and on sale at $36.99 for few more hours.

    most of this is just to cool the circuit in the charger not the phone

    Maybe most, but mine cools the actual surface in contact with the phone.

    I'm not trying to promote mine so just use whatever you feel like.

    I got a rav power. No fan but the pad is awesome. Is the fan theory really true for all charging. Like does it help battery last longer? Probably not if you replace phone every year anyway

    Which is what gets hot and thus the phone. Hot charging pad can shorten the battery.

    If you keep a phone for a year does it even matter.

    I doubt it matters even well into 2nd or 3rd years frankly. Maybe down to 80% or so. But at the same time, Anker’s charger with a fan only adds $10 at the most to the price tag when they are on sale.

    Bigger potential issue is when they are used in the bedroom. Fans are not super noisy but they are noticeable.
