    I've had my iPhone X since launch and it occurred to me that I've only plugged the lightning cable into two or three times; between the wireless chargers at my home, car, and office my phone stays well charged. I run with my phone 4 times a week (including a 2.5 hour long-run on Saturday) and the lowest I've seen the battery get to at the end of the day is in the upper 30% range. So my experience with charging speed and battery depletion have been very positive!

    My question is for other people who use wireless chargers: A lot of the photos I see of people's chargers are the flat, round disc types. Why do you prefer that instead of an easel-style charger? I have an easel on my nightstand and office desk. You can use them landscape or portrait and they're very convenient for when notifications pop up. I found them on Amazon for $17 and they both work great. Moreover, neither of them get warm or make my phone hot, which is an issue I've seen reported about some other chargers. My car charger cost $25 and it works equally well (meaning it charges quickly and doesn't get hot).

    I'm using the same type as you. I also got it off of Amazon for the same price. More convenient to check out the time with a tap next to the bed. It works just as well as those high priced ones at the Apple Store. No reason to pay more to do the same thing.

    I have both standing & flat style charger. They serve different purpose. On my coffee table and bedside table I have the flat ones and at work I have the standing ones.

    I had a spiegen flat charger from amazon and then replaced it with an ikea charger that’s fitted into my bedside table. I’d be worried about knocking it if it wasn’t flat.

    In the car I can’t use wireless charging as my phone needs to be plugged in for CarPlay. I don’t need to charge at work.

    I currently use the Anker 5w wireless charging stand at work. I never charge mine overnight and I don’t like fast charging as I have 0 need for it.
