@TBoneZeOriginal I got one of those standup rapid chargers from Amazon. I was excited at first because it indeed said fast charging on my phone. And it does work, for a little while. But then everything starts to get hot and the charging slows to a trickle. So it’s really good to get a few percent in 15 minutes or so but it stinks to actually try to charge the phone completely.
@TBoneZeOriginal Actually, the brand name is the best part. I bought a cheap-o one off Amazon a year or so ago, and it died after only a couple of months. No mfg. warranty. These have a two-year warranty.
Additionally, a brand name (most likely) assures quality components were used in these devices, and it won’t set your house on fire.
I didn’t realize I had that complex of feelings about a phone accessory brand, but that write up almost brought a tear to me eye as I look around at all of the Belkin brand things I own. But I already have three charging stands, so I’ll pass.
@akumax If only they would include product descriptions with bullet points highlighting each one of the features of said product and put it below a picture of the product but just before where the comments start. That would be so helpful!
@akumax Actually - I’ll revise my cheeky comment to say - you may need to click on “Show more comments” to make the specs appear. For some reason they are hidden when they hide some comments. Meh - you need to fix that.
@LaVikinga I meant how the USB cable plugs into the charging device thingamabob. Does it plug into the top of the dohickey? Does it plug in to the side of the whatchamacallit? Does it plug into the back in such away that it sticks out of the thingamajig and makes it unstable?
@sjk3 Good question! I couldn’t find any photos showing it actually plugged in, but if you look closely at the photos here on Meh, there’s a little indent on the right side that looks like where the cable plugs in. I was able to find this FCC diagram that shows the device from all sides that confirms this is indeed where the cable plugs in.
So, those images in this sale showing a phone being charged without the cable hanging awkwardly off the side of the charger are a bit misleading. That’s definitely not an ideal placement, and probably a big reason why this product is here on Meh.
@danlo I am not crabby, and I’m laser focused! Also, Ive been Randoon for decades! My closest friends just call me Doon. Gotta love the monosyllabic power nickname! I might even let you into the inner circle. I like you!
@Skaene I have an Anker charging stand and it works well. It’s as fast as any other wireless charger. Certainly much faster than 10% in 45 minutes. Do you have a case that’s making it work less efficiently?
The Anker is also quiet. I had another brand in which the fan was so loud that I gave it away. This one has a fan but I don’t hear it at a normal distance.
@ParadisePete admittedly it very well could be the case. Testing it as we speak without it, so we’ll see how it goes.
I have, however, used it on another wireless charger with acceptable results though.
Granted, that was an official samsung one from the carrier store, so that might make a difference.
@Skaene The case I use is very thin and doesn’t seem to affect the charging at all. I don’t think it takes much distance though to reduce it. Mine has a fairly large target area, and if I place the phone off-center enough I can see by the changing indicator at the bottom that I need to adjust it.
Wireless charging in general makes little sense to me. Great way to make your phone hot. Also annoying when your phone is dying but you still want to use it and you can’t because it has to stay perched on its little pad.
The only exception to this would be in the car, where wireless charging on my car phone mount was a gamechanger.
@betaRepeating I find it’s great for watching videos in full screen while laying on my side. Phone gets to charge and I get to watch youtube in comfort. It helps that my bedside table is lower than the bed, so the tilt doesn’t get in the way of viewing.
@betaRepeating I leave mine in the wireless charger stand pretty much all day and it never gets hot, and I can watch videos etc, while it stays at 100% charge. I happen to have a Samsung EP-N5200 stand and Samsung Galaxy S20 5G.
@ws1o I use mine in the same way. I love having a wireless charger on my desk at home and at work (which right now are the same place, but I digress…). No fussy cable to mess with, just set it down and pick it up one-handed, and the phone stays charged all day. I’ve never noticed it getting warm.
@betaRepeating Also not to mention that the cord connector (Lightning connector in the case of Apple phones) is subject to wear and often the first thing to “fail” in your $1K phone. I always have a paranoia of that, because it happened to me on an older iPhone a few years ago. Also happened to my friend, who learned about using a spray-duster to clear out dust and lint from the connector area, and that worked. But anyway each time you plug in the cord you are pressing on the connectors internally. If you do this nightly, and hope to keep your phone for a few years, that’s like 1000 cycles of plugging and unplugging. With the wireless, you are just tossing it onto a stand and your connector remains very happy, though perhaps a bit lonely since it’s not doing that mating with the cord thing anymore.
Best deal ever: Go to any nearby hotel, tell them you stayed there the other night and forgot your charger, and they’ll let you fish one out of the huge box of lost chargers they’ve collected (what do they care; what else are they gonna do with them anyway?)
@Fuzzalini@ws1o Is this really a thing people do? Actually it makes sense, and as someone here said, eventually they will just toss them anyway, hopefully at least going to e-Waste recycling but most likely into a dumpster.
@danlo I got nail polish there for $15, the same day there was a Mehrathon where I bought the exact same polish for $10. I’m giving the $15 bottles away, keeping the $10 for myself. Because, I’m not a cheap gift giver. lol
@FLyMyPretty@stevebopp only if you put the metal plate over the area of the phone where the pickup coil is. I’ve used wireless charging every night for over a year with case and steel plate for magnetic mounting- the plate is in the top corner of my iPhone and it works very well.
