    How can you tell? It doesn’t say it on the bottom
    Google it by model number and check specs.

    So weird to see Apple following a standard (Qi certified).

    The Samsung fast wireless chargers are Qi. Some of the non-fast chargers were Qi and others were PMA I believe.

    Somewhere I read that the AirPower wasn't Qi though?

    - I just ordered (2) - Turbot 3-Coil QI Wireless Charging Phone Stands. Took me a while to decide on which ones. Most don't come with either cables or adapters. Amazon has a lot on sale (as per post above) well under $20.
    The wall charger brick part- which one should i use? the one that came with the phone or one like the iPad? I have a number of bricks around the house. Don't want to over or undercharge. I am new to the wireless charging world. I use the iPad one for my phone all the time-

    From what I understand, in order to allow for fast charging (once the software update is released) a USB-C cable is needed and only a USB-A cable is included. So if buying a wireless charger, it needs to have a USB-C cable. I think the power rating (at least on some of the initial devices I've seen) is 7.5w. I believe the iPhone brick is less but maybe the iPad brick is that size?

    Not necessarily thinking for fast charge. Thinking more the overnight variety. I just want to be safe. Not sure why they can’t charge more and include it.

    Hmmm...Possible it isn’t. Does current Qi technology allow multiple devices to be charged at once? I know next to nothing about wireless charging.

    I’m so glad Apple chose Qi and didn’t make some goofy half baked thing that only worked with iPhones. Really nice to use my existing qi stuff

    And as far as Apple and half baked, I present: Ping, Newton, Mobile Me, Apple’s iOS Notification Center, the Apple mouse that can’t be used while being charged.

    Those are off the top of my head lol. I’m not hear to bash Apple. I love Apple. Which is why I give them too much money. But yeah they have had their share of half baked.

    Yeah, that’s personal. Apple has always been one to use proprietary accessories. Maybe they will and maybe they won’t move away from lightning. Apparently this year was not the time to do so.
