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.

Many apologies JB, but this has opened another question.

Why should Apple sell iPhones, that are enabled for Wireless Charging, without the necessary pads?

I suppose that Apple think the normal plug in charger is OK. Some iPhones won’t work with wireless chargers- the new SE and models after the 8 do as they have a toughened glass back. Also to help in waterproofing they use the lightening socket for headphones- they do supply those but you need an adapter to use ones with a 3.5 m plug,

I believe that for Wireless Charging to work, Induction Coils have to be built into the recipient Product, which would be an expensive process. OF course, I may have totally misunderstood the process.

Are you sure that your phones have Wireless Charging enabled?

The only thing that that told me was that some manufacturers have been building Induction Loops into their phones for several years. That I did not know.
