@Pufferfishy You’ll lose. I charge not only through a case, but working around a steel plate in that case that lets the phone stay elevated in my car. I’m sure there’s an efficiency loss, but it works just fine.
@Pufferfishy you’ll be fine unless your case is something ridiculous like a Lifeproof or otterbox indestructible thing that provides so much volume around the phone for shock reduction that you can’t put it in your pocket. My wireless charger experience through multiple cases has been all good.
@chienfou “For the privilege of being extra lazy these users of wireless charging expend up to 47 percent more energy to charge their phones, something that if widely adopted would require dozens of new power plants across the globe to accommodate.”
Good in theory, terrible in reality. Super flimsy product. One arrived broken. The one that “worked” is so light and cheap that when I put my phone on the standup charger it just flopped back down because the build is so weak. Wish I had saved my $ and bought my 1,000th Bluetooth speaker.

Ok, was i the person to notice :" chop a leak"??? Well, of course doing a plumbing job will seriously slow down meal prep time. Do one task at a time people. Cooking and plumbing don’t successfully multi-task together
I am guessing there aren’t wires in the rotating joint, meaning there is no internal way for power to get from the base to the Qi coil. Thus each section needs its own power input. They appear to be female micro USB connectors.
The 3 foot or less “Y” cable can power both parts at the same time. Although, the single cable probably has too much of a voltage drop to support charging two things at 5 watts each.
The specifications aren’t clear to me. I don’t know if the 5W rating on the Qi charger is for the power input to the coil, or the power that actually gets to the device being charged.
Each section is wrapped in a clear light pipe that is lit up far too brightly with blue LEDs. This will require several feet of black tape to hide from sleepy people.
