Title: Best Wireless Phone-Charger / Stand
Post by: Yo ssi on June 23, 2020, 11:57:48 PM
I've got a Note 10+ which officially supports 15W wireless charging, I'm looking for the ideal stand with adjustable angles, and also supports 15W wireless charging, I can't seem to find anything existing on the market!
It seems that the only wireless chargers that are 15W and support the Note 10+ are made by Samsung, so even something 10W with an adjustable stand would be amazing.

At this point I'm thinking of crafting my own, all ideas are welcome!

I'm new to wireless charging. I purchased the Apple Airpods last week with wireless charging, and I'm looking for a recommendation for a good wireless charger for it, preferably one that is relatively small. Any suggestions?

Just curious- I clicked on it, and two "compare with" options are cheaper and have better reviews. Should I go with this one, or with a lesser-known brand with more stars?

Is anyone aware of a wireless charger that works through the metal plate that is attached to my phone for the magnet?

I think the options are either or.

Haven't had luck finding anything that can charge through metal (had a metal credit card in phone case (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GHFCY5J/), had to have cc company send me a plastic card instead).


ETA: Google brought up this brand, that may be able to do what you want. Look for reviews / deals online.

I got recommendations on these forums for Omaker brand chargers, and I've had great experiences with them.

They seem to have stopped making them, though, as I only found one listing on Amazon. This seems like the one I have, but I have it in Black.

Omaker Intelligent 6.6A / 33W Premium Aluminum 3 USB Car Charger with Smart Sharing IC for Each USB Port- Hot Pink ($19.99) (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PMULGDS/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER)

Found this on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2X-Omaker-6-6A-Premium-Aluminum-3-USB-Car-High-Speed-Charger-With-Smart-IC/193631642655

FWIW - I have 3 of these, and they work great - albeit not so rapidly - with all of our phones - iPhone X, Galaxy s10+ and Pixel 4.

I also did this - https://medium.com/@yonahwolf/a-magic-wireless-charging-table-for-less-than-30-bce7c9a01e06

I originally used Ikea chargers (which are 5w) - so it's a lot slower. The idea here is that the Wireless charger is hidden under the surface of the table.

Can someone please give me a sales pitch for the round wireless charger pads. I canít for the life of me understand the benefit of a charger where you canít hold it while it charges but has to lay on the pad ?? Iím not even being cynical I really canít think of a benefit. Yes. Itís cool that it charges wirelessly , but otherwise what use is there?

On a night-table. You put your phone down when you go to sleep, and you can check your messages in middle of the night without worrying about losing your charging wire.

You may not check your phone in middle of the night, but 64 percent of Americans do.

Also, 93 percent of Americans will believe any statistic offered, even if it was pulled out of a hat and not physically possible to confirm.

No need to fumble with wires to charge your phone. Just put it down and let it do itís thing.
No wires falling behind desk / bed that you need to find.
Wires tear all the time (bend it too hard, especially while holding it in your hand as itís charging).
Charge multiple devices (large pad) or multiple types of devices (Apple / Android) using single charger, donít need multiple wires hanging off the wa until you need that specific one.
Clean / neat charging setup.

For desk, get a standing pad so you can see phone notifications as they come in and decide if important to pick up your phone.

I personally used it on a desk, where I used to plop down my phone and when I need it, the charging was paused.
Then I upgraded to making it part of a custom built stand, hand crafted at it's finest!

They sell these all over Israel  for pretty cheap.
The idea is to have the wireless charger in the middle and a large circle magnet around it.
Never used one but looks more secure. My s8+ is always falling off regardless of magnet size.
