    I can't find a straight answer on this. I just want to know two things: Can XS Max be charged at 10W and, if so, what is the best 10W wireless charger?

    Yes, the XS/XS MAX both support 10W Qi fast wireless charging. I'm currently using two different models. Luv them, makes life so much easier.

    After doing research, There are so many on the market it's hard to say, but I do like the Samsung models. I really think it comes down to personal style and preference. I've found that as long as you see the Qi it should be good to go. The Apple wireless tech in the iPhones are Qi tech as well.

    All Apple has said is that the XS and XS Max have "faster wireless charging" but don't get into specifics. The most you'd get out of the X, 8 and 8 Plus was 7.5W as long as you used a wireless charger that was certified by Apple. The only two off the top of my head that I know of are the Mophie wireless charging pad and Belkin wireless charging pad. So even if you have a Samsung one that supports up to 10w, you won't even get the 7.5w if it's not certified by Apple.

    Again, I don't see any concrete evidence that the iPhone XS Max supports 10W wireless charging.

    Humm, I know that I'm using 10W Qi Fast Wireless Chargers and the charging rate is fast. I'm not sure if that's exactly true. My experience says something totally different.
    The Xs Max and Xs has Qi tech so can be used with Qi Fast Wireless Chargers...


    I'm on the phone with Apple tech now. Lets see what answer I get.

    These two
    Fast Wireless Charger, 10W Qi... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DBWSJ2Z...mUvbUpU3096650

    Samsung Qi Certified Fast Charge Wireless Charger Pad - US Version - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B012AWBN9C...mUvbUpU3096650

    But I'm still on phone with Apple. The rep doesn't know...and has me on hold.

    Well, I think we're back to square one on this question. Just got off the phone with Apple tech, and she could find anything pro or con for 10W wireless fast chargers and suggested to stay with 7.5W wireless fast chargers because that's what Belkin uses and they are certified by Apple. That would make sense. Buy Belkin

    Edit; Well that didn't last long. Just found a Certified for iPhone 10W Belkin Fast Wireless charger ...

    Just made a visit to the Belkin website and it appears they have at least one certified 10W fast wireless charger with Qi for iPhones on their website.

    It's possible that it just means It'll charge a Samsung at 10W and the iPhone would still charge at 7.5W.

    EXACTLY. A friend of mine who has a Galaxy s9 and Xs MAX just finished testing both and the Xs MAX is using 7.5 fast wireless charging where the Galaxy s9 is using 10w fast wireless charging capabilities. Apple hasn't activated the Xs and Xs MAX 10W charging capabilities at this time but both devices are capable of 10W charging.

    Anker 10W is a good wireless charger and not as expensive as others. Anker is a solid brand. Have many of their cables, chargers and carep chargers.

    Anker 10W Wireless Charger, Qi-Certified Wireless Charging Pad, PowerPort Wireless 10 Compatible iPhone XS Max/XR/XS/8/8 Plus, iPhone X, 10W Fast-Charging Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+/S8/S8+/S7/S7 Edge More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KJL4XNY...mUvbUpU3096696

    Yeah even though it's 10w the phone will only take what it can except.
