    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
    Half baked?? I’m trying very hard not to be that guy but has Apple ever left us with an half baked solution?

    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.

    I mean it’s dumb to whine about but it’s just odd to me that they let that happen I guess.

    So, can I use this Samsung fast charger with the iPhone wall plug, that comes with the 8 plus?

    I'm not sure you'll see Apple ditch the Lightning connector on the iPhone for USB-C. At least part of it is how thin the lightning is, even compared to USB-C. I will agree that it is past time that Apple changed the cable that comes with the iPhone to a USB-C to Lightning, with a USB-C power adapter. Especially with the 8/Plus/X phones having a fast charge ability, it really seems like a money grab; since to get fast charging you not only have to buy the larger power brick but, since it is a USB-C device, you have to buy the cable as well.

    Especially since the Mac currently only have USB-C ports.

    Yes, it's a Qi Charger.. per Amazon. So you can use the charger.. but you want a different adapter. The one that comes with the phone does not have enough power.

    I've had this Powerbot wireless charger (or one just like it) since about 2014, when I bought it for a Nexus 5. It's $9 and has worked well, being pretty much constantly being plugged in for the last 3 years, and it charges my iPhone 8 Plus. It appears to come with a cord (I really don't remember, at this point) so you can just plug it into your Apple power block. While it is relatively small, I've never had an issue with my phones -- it has a rubber ring on the top and bottom which keeps it, and the items on top, from moving easily. For $9, you can't go wrong.

    Yea, I gave it a try, and for now I’ll put on the wireless charger when I go to bed. It gave me a charge, but I only went from 53% to 73% in 45 minutes lol

    As you've found, it isn't a quick way to charge the phone -- though a more powerful charge plug can help it be a bit faster. But it is quite good for charging the phone overnight, or even just having at an office where you can leave your phone when not using it.

    It should work fine, Samsung chargers are Qi standard. I bought 2 Samsung fast chargers from bestbuy yesterday. They work great.
