Reccomendation for wi fi charger for iphone

  john bunyan 09:04 26 May 2020

Having just bought a iPhone SE 2020 I am looking for a wi fi charger. There are plenty around on Amazon etc , but I was advised by my excellent repair guy that some run hot - he thought that the Samsung ones ran cooler. I would be grateful for suggestions for a suitable wi fi charger that, hopefully runs cooler than some. I think such a charger will reduce wear and tear on the lightening port.

There is a difference between them in terms of how quickly they will charge. I had a 7.5W one and now a 10W one which charges much quicker. There are now 15W models available but the iPhone is not tuned to charge above 10W

Of course O meant wireless charger. I was told that some run much hotter than others so that what I am looking for.

The technology involved is bound to develop some heat. I wouldn't worry

Can you answer me a question?

If the iPhone came with a Charging Pad ~ Why are you looking to buy another?

It came with the normal charger that plugs in to the lightening socket on the phone and a usb wall socket (NOT a charging pad) These phones need charging daily so a wireless charger where the phone sits on a pad means you don’t have to use the lightening socket. I think that will reduce wear on the phone socket.

Not too bad , the one I got was £24.99 from Amazon - 10 w with fast wall plug.Amazon recommend at a £10 off offer.

According to the spec it is optimised to deliver 7.5 W to iPhone, 9 W for Samsung. We’ll see
