    Hello, I am looking to purchase a wireless charger that's a bit faster than the old mophie (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...ffb83f631ccc984a932ba4f546f82d9d6ddc0fc3b29d6) that I got from apple store 2 years ago.

    So now I looked at the apple website, they're selling a new Belkin boost up but I'm not really sure if its faster than the old version. also I found another Belkin boost up on amazon saying its 10w. what is the difference between these two?

    this: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...7e7c4c947b6339942a2ce8ae3ff44bb353c77d042e51f

    and

    None of Apple’s iPhones wirelessly charge faster than 7.5 W. I have the same one and had the same question but I am sticking with the same mophie you are using until the newer iPhones support greater than 7.5 W wireless charging.

    The difference between the new boost up may simply be Belkin made a unique SKU for the Apple Store with little to no difference elsewhere. The old Belkin wireless charger sold at the Apple store was like that (different box, different SKU, but largely similar otherwise).

    Personally I suggest the excellent Logitech POWERED wireless charging stand

    What baffles me is on Apple's site it even says XS charges faster than X. How much faster? Isn't X already 7.5 since the update?

    I read/heard it had to do the charging coil being better.

    Anko branded wireless stand from Kmart here in Australia (& presumably around the world) is perfect to set up on a night stand for overnight 7.5w charging. No overheating, no fans & a dim blue light (which can be covered up with black electrical tape if need be).

    It keeps the battery cooler while charging, so therefore increasing the battery life. It's also pretty inaudible to be honest, unless you're the sort of person that gets woken up by a mouse fart.
