    Dear all,

    What would be the best wireless charging pad for the new iPhones. I saw the Belkin BoostUp pads, they seem to be realiable and receiving good reviews. One has 7,5 and the other one 10 Watts.

    As the iPhones only charge with 7,5 Watts it wouldn‘t make sense to buy the bigger one? Or will Apple increase the amounts of Watts soon to 10 and the more expensive pad would be future proof?

    Or is there a better charger you can recommend? Many thanks from Europe.

    The new iPhone support fast wireless charging, so you should go with the 10W chargers

    I bought the circular version of the RAVPower one (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B075FHY8MB) for my XS, and am surprised to see how precisely I have to place the phone on it for it to charge. For instance, if the pad is just a little bit below the middle of the phone, it won't charge. Anyone else find this? Is it just a factor of the smaller size of the pad itself?

    Does the Samsung 2018 wireless charger fast charge the iPhone?

    I really enjoy the 10W Belkin Boost Up Bold, and the black is usually on sale at Amazon

    Monoprice has some solid ones for a great price. I have the flat ones and the stand up ones, both work flawlessly and can do up to 10w. About $15 a piece.

    They can charge with a 10watt wireless charger but, the Xs is limited to 7.5w so unless a future update allows a higher charging rate the phone is limited to 7.5w.
