    I am going to wait a few months before buying anything. I think any Qi charger will work but you will not get fast charge.

    Air power looks good but is anybody getting one to keep them going until then?

    Think a wireless charger that you can use as a stand is what i will look for.

    What Qi chargers are you buying for your 8, 8+ or X? From where?

    LOL how painful it is to read those uninformed reviews.

    $60 for a qi charger!? WHY? Any $15 one on Amazon will work exactly the same.

    Maybe not settling for a lesser product IMHO.

    That one will work just fine. You can throw the phone on it in pretty much any direction and it hits a coil. Using it in my car for my 7+

    Cost doesn't necessarily mean that something else is lesser. Many "name brand" products are often made right along side the cheaper ones, using the same components. Often times you're just paying for the name.

    Never bought a Qi chager before, but I’m in the market, some my iPhone 8 arrives tomorrow. I’d really like one to be a pad (not a stand), black, and thin. I don’t even know what brand to trust. Recommendations?

    I bought the mophie pad from the apple store at West Edmonton Mall yesterday and it works great, even with a case on. And yes, it’s black

    Every single one that I have seen is nothing short of an embarrassment to design. The only one that looks good is of course Apple’s which I’ll have to wait well into 2018 for.

    Bookmarked the black one! It looks really nice! Any recommendations for a white one? I prefer white if it looks sleek enough to match the other cables/macbook chargers.
