If you have a Qi-compatible smartphone, but you still don’t use wireless charging, you’ve missed it. Chargers such as Anker’s PowerWave 10W Wireless Charging Pad are extremely affordable these days, so by choosing traditional charging, if anything, you don’t even save much. You can start wireless charging for just $8.99 with today’s deal and save $7 off the usual cost of this well-reviewed charging accessory.
The pad provides 10W high-speed charging for devices that support it, such as the Galaxy devices line from Samsung, while the 7.5W charge for iPhone models. For any other Qi-enabled phone or device, it gives a 5W charge. The LED indicators let you know at a glance whether the phone case is too thick or whether there is something else between the phone and the charger.
Fortunately, with most cases up to 5 mm thick, this wireless charging pad works, but any metal or cards in the back of the phone will prevent charging. Existing users rate it highly based on over 2,000 reviews with an average of 4 out of 5 stars. Anker is also supporting it with an 18-month warranty.
This pad does not come with a plug-in USB wall adapter, although it includes a USB cable. If you’re planning to use its fast-charging tech, you’ll want one with Quick Charge 3.0, so grab that extra accessory to make sure you get the fastest charge.
