    Aukey, Anker, Belkin, Griffin, Mophie, and other brands waited for the iPhone to support Qi charging before coming up with their products. The lesser known brands might have had them before, we just didn't notice. ;)

    I think no one will know for sure until its been a few months, wear and tear on the battery is a slow process, its a question of whether you are gonna risk your 60-70k phone on buying these cheap chargers/powerbanks... personally when it comes to power-related stuff i go with reliable ones that pass safety tests

    i would be wary of no-name brands if Qi was an experimental technology, but i think at this stage though the Qi standard may be new to us iPhone users, it's already been available for Androids for quite some time now. as long as Apple made their tech compliant with the Qi standard then there should be less risk.

    i cannot speak for the non-Qi, battery-related internals of the powerbank though, since many manufacturers try and cut costs on components related to safety.

    P.S. my Awei P98K just arrived today haha. one of the things i hate the most when charging with powerbanks is the messy cable. this should solve it at least for my iPhone X.
