    I’m waiting till I get one of the iPhones that come out next year.
    Regardless of which one, I will definitely get 3 wireless chargers, to use in and around my house

    Subscribing to this thread because I'm wondering the same thing! I am also wondering about what cases to use with a wireless charger. I contacted Otterbox, and they say that all of their cases "should" work with a wireless charger. I'm leaning towards the Otterbox Symmetry because there is a clear one available.

    None. I’ve got a collection of perfectly good lightning cables.

    I hear ya, but wireless charging is the one feature I am looking forward to in this upgrade. If not for that, I probably would have just kept my 7.

    I will get the Belkin one at my Apple Store.
    It will get fast charging later this year.
    But I can sadly confirm that it will not charge the Apple Watch...

    Might want to check out this link - the belkin charger is available through google express for 30 bucks each, plus a 20% coupon if you've never used Google Express before. I bought two belkin chargers for 52 bucks shipped to my door. Supposed to arrive tomorrow too!

    Fyi, this is not a fast charger, max 5W with 2A charger.

    I will be buying Samsung fast charger from best buy, that one is 10W and comes with quick charge 3.0 charger. Plus it's a way better brand than Belkin or mophie

    I thought the only way to get the fast charge was via usb-c cable

    Thanks for the heads up, but I am aware that isn't the fast charger. Most of the time I put my phone on the charger when I go to bed and pick it up in the morning, so it will have plenty of time. Any other situation and I will probably just plug it in.

    There is something wrong about putting your iPhone on a Samsung charger anyway

    That, and fast charging isn't even available yet. Coming with a software update later in the year.

    That's is true for wired fast charger, I'll have to use a USB C cable with my MacBook pro charger to get fast charge at 61W

    There re multiple wireless charging speeds under Qi standard. Standard ones max out at 5W, gen one fast chargers give you about 7-7.5W, but quick charge 3.0 chargers go up to 10W for wireless charger. But iPhones are capped at 7.5 W from Apple.

    I am so confused with these wireless chargers. I need one that won’t break the bank. All tolled I would want like 6-8 of them for myself and my husband between Home and work. Most of the $20 ones don’t seem to have the cord and the charging brick.

    That is true, most of them on Amazon don't even come with charger, they expect you to use your phone charger. But iphones crappy 1A charger that comes with the phone is useless. Almost all wireless chargers require a minimum of 2A or quick charge 2.0/3.0 bricks

    Good question. I don’t know. I would assume so but you know what happens when you assume.

    I’m as new to this as a lot of people are so I’m not sure. But the $12 was worth it as a trial if it works for the one I got.

    Got two of these at Best Buy for $21.49 each after price match for a few reasons:
    1. It’s fast charge (up to 10W), will max iPhone at 7.5W.
    2. Comes with wire and QC 3.0 brick in the box.
    3. High quality product since Samsung is in this game a longer.

    4. This fast charger is ventilated so it doesn’t crazy hot.
