When the first iPhones launched with wireless charging capabilities, many of the first wireless charging accessories designed for the new devices were the plain, flat wireless charging pads.
Now that companies have had time to innovate and come up with more efficient charging solutions, we're seeing more and more upright wireless charging stands, like iOttie's new iON Wireless Charging Stand.
Upright wireless charging stands offer several benefits over the flat wireless charging options, and are by far my favorite charging solutions for the iPhone X and new iPhone XS models. With a wireless charging stand, it's impossible to place the iPhone at the wrong position for charging to start automatically, which is not the case with flat charging solutions.
When I'm using a flat pad, I have on multiple occasions put the iPhone a little bit left or right of the center of the built-in charging coil, which means it won't charge. Then I have to adjust multiple times and double check to make sure everything is lined up.
With the little shelf that's available on upright stands, there's basically no room for error when positioning the iPhone, so it's better for peace of mind, especially when charging an iPhone on a wireless charger at night. And, in addition to the no-hassle charging, upright stands offer the benefit of being able to look over and see the iPhone's screen at a glance.
iOttie's iON Wireless Stand, like its flat charger, is one of the more unique wireless charging accessories I've run into. It's actually almost identical in design to the iON Fast Charging Pad Plus and the iON Fast Charging Pad Mini, but it's a stand instead of a pad.
