Mophie owner. I like the compact size of this wireless charger and it does have some good reviews. For me what’s not to like about it. Price is the only deciding factor for some.

Anyone know of a larger one like Apple will sell? I'd like to get one now that can fit my X and S3 Watch.

I also purchased the Mophie charging pad. Seems well built. Can’t wait to use it on my X.

What is the difference between the Mophie and some of the much cheaper ones like the Anker mentioned. I see the Mophie specs say it will be supporting high-speed charging. Do the cheaper models not support that?

* High-speed wireless charging is enabled with a free software update coming later this year.

Currently, only the Mophie and Belkin will support high-speed charging when it’s enabled.

I’m going to purchase the Mophie today and the Apple AirPower when it’s released.

This is the one I went with after reading some decent reviews.

Just remember that ios 11 only supports standard wireless charge right now at 5W. Once they turn on fast wireless charge you can take advantage of the 2.5 extra watts (whoopie but it will be a little faster). For that you'll need a USB 3.0 wall adapter and a charger that supports it, like this one.

I bought the Mophie yesterday. Can't use it until I get iPhone X on Friday though haha. Mophie seems nice. Good build quality. Looks nice on my nightstand

They all do the same thing...
The iPhone doesn't support fast charging
I prefer one that the device can stand

I just purchased one that stands and was recommend by The Verge site, and had good reviews on Amazon. It supports fast charging for when that feature is enabled by Apple and was only $20, but you need to buy a USB charger with sufficient power separately. One aspect that I particularly liked was that the phone can be placed on it standing-up or sideways. Here are the links at Amazon:

Edit: Forgot to mention, there's a promotional code in the product description page for the wireless charger that says if you buy it with the wall charger, you get a 40% discount, so $8 off. Together they'll run $22.

When fast charging actually comes out next year, I will get one and still keep my $10 chargers. Got three of them - work, kitchen and nightstand.
Yeah that's my plan too. Get a few cheap chargers for work and home and then maybe get the Airpower charger or some other fast charger once it is actually enabled.
