    With the iPhone 8/8+ and X being now locally available, let's discuss what Qi Wireless chargers, docks, stands, etc you guys are using and where you got them!

    Be aware of these.

    Currently iOS 11.1.2 limits Qi wireless charging to 5W only.

    Future iOS 11.2 limits Qi wireless charging to 7.5W only.

    USB to Lighting cable + 12W charger normally bundled with iPads is limited to 12W only.

    USB-C to Lighting cable + 29W charger normally bundled with Macbooks shortens charging time by 15 minutes vs using 12W charger with the iPhone 8 Plus.

    Other iPhones would follow in this ranking.

    iPad Pros benefit more from the fast charging from the USB-C to Lighting cable + 29W charger than iPhones.

    It has a 9000mAh capacity.
    Took a picture of the specs @ the back.
    And I bought it @ Games & Gadget. :)

    I bought a wireless charger called Nekteck from amazon. The piece of sh!t worked only for 2 weeks. Whenever I put the phone on the cradle to charge, it just sounds off alarming beeps and doesnt charge at all.
