    iPhones use Qi (8/X and newer)

    So any Qi wireless charging pad will work.

    Purchased this Baseus Wireless Charger thru online. Output says 10W(max), does it support Apple’s 7.5W fast charge? Do I need the 12W USB power adapter to enjoy fast charging?

    I've been wanting to get a wireless car charger/mount as well for the longest time. Scosche has had a line of wireless charging mounts for some time already but I wanted to confirm if the cable attached to the charger/mount was detachable and uses at least a microUSB interface so that I can ditch the stock cable and use a shorter, coiled cable as to not clutter my dash. So for that specific requirement I'm looking to get this... Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge

    Based on the literature, this version of the MagicMount utilizes two magnetic points to securely hold the phone onto the mount.

    I've been using various MagicMounts since my iPhone 6S days and by far the best one I've had is the CD slot variant. The one I have now is the MagicMount Pro (with the stronger magnet than the older version) and is able to hold even the weight of the XS Max even when traversing the bumpy roads of metro manila.

    Hopefully I can order this soon and give a proper review once I have actual use

    I even used the coupon so my bill went under 800.

    Was it delivered straight to your home/office? I noticed that the item will be shipped from HK via standard/free shipping only.

    I always address my shipment from amazon to my store in pampanga, that way it will be delivered straight to mu store.

    Will wireless charging work better with any case by principle? or will it work as intended regardless of the thickness or material of the case used? Never had used one involving mobile phones before.

    Bought a BOOST↑UP™ Wireless Charging Pad 7.5W from PowerMac. So far, it's working flawlessly with an Iphone XS Max enclosed in an Otterbox symmetry case.

    I want the Nomad Base Station since it looks beautiful and can wirelessly charge two devices at the same time. However it’s priced at $100, so no thanks. Hehehe

    Been using the Baseus wireless charger (P1K plus at Lazada) with very good results. Charges even with a thick leather case. Got one for me and for the wife.

    From which courier did they deliver it with in your case? I was afraid I had to go to our local post office to claim the item. Tracking says the item is “Enroute to delivery office”.

    For momax they use the post to send our staff. The first time i ordered, i used our malate address and it was a bad experience because not only did the local post office not deiver my staff, it did not inform me too that my shipment was already ready for claiming, so it took more than a month before i was anle to get it.the second time i ordered i used our pampanga address and the post office delivered it right at our doorstep!

    I think I will have to schedule a trip to our local post office. Usually our post office messages us that our parcel arrived after 2-4 weeks. So yeah, will check this week if mine‘s arrived already. Thanks!

    Based from my own experience, as long as the device is charging, then all's good. Because I think the amount of power delivered to the phone will still depend on the capability of the charger (those with higher wattage ratings) rather than how near/far the charger and phone are of each other

    Of course the thicker the case, the more likely the device and wireless charger may not make contact for the charge.

    Definitely a no-no for metal-back cases. But for those with metal plates for magnetic mounts I can certify that wireless charging still works as long as the plate does not block/interfere the spot where the phone receives the wireless charge
