    Interesting thing I noticed with my Baseus “donut” wireless charger. I put my 6s with its Apple Battery Case on top of the charger just like I would put it on top of a book, coaster, etc. After an hour, the case was warm to the touch.

    I guess these things try to emit/conduct electricity even with other devices.

    why would you even do this though? wireless charging is basically electromagnets and you risk damage to non-compatible devices by exposing them to that magnetic oscillation.

    I always thought it wouldn't do anything since the other phone wasn't wireless capable. The light indicator also doesn't turn on. I guess I should've known better.

    Apologies - my response came off as a little too condescending. But yeah, the charger probably detected “something” on it and was continuously trying to establish a handshake with the device. Actual power delivery doesn’t start until the other device responds properly, but the continuous attempts in making a connection was probably what made it warm..

    I bought RAVPower wireless charger from Amazon and had that shipped via Johnny Air. I am satisfied with it but I wish I have waited a month longer as they have released an improved version of the charger (the one that turns green if the phone is fully charged).

    Decided to try out Kimstore's Jaguar Wireless charging pad. Slightly disappointed on how slow it charges. I left my phone on it with WiFi on overnight, and it only charged from around 30 to 45%. I tried killing the WiFi and Data the other night, and it only charged from 30 to 60%. Kind of sad. :(

    Hi! I believe we have the same wireless charging pad but I'm not having any issues with mine. It can charge from 22% to full, overnight with or without wifi and/or data turned on.

    this shouldn't be normal - non-fast charge Qi chargers are expected to charge roughly at the same rate as the bundled 5w charger

    Just got a Freedy charger here in Tokyo. At 15W, it's supposed to charge 3x faster than the regular 5W chargers. Around Php2.5k.

    where can you buy the Momax Qi chargers locally?

    seems to be the cheapest yet it is qi certified.

    I also have this, given to me by a friend. It charges normally not fast though. When I wake up in the morning, my phone is fully charged.

    What do you mean ships from Hong Kong? Is there an Amazon website that's HK based? Or a seller from HK?
