    Works as you'd expect

    • Written by Joseph M from Woodland Hills

    Another product I've bought recently that doesn't really need explaining. Plug it in, drop your iPhone on it, and it charges. As some reviews have noted, though, you do want to get the iPhone as centered as possible. I've noticed sometimes the white power light will blink and the iPhone will "ding" a few times, I think it's the connection being weak so very little power is reaching the iPhone. Centering it never causes this issue.

    Good, yet not perfect

    • Written by Lev P from Forest Row

    It's overall quite a nice accessory for your phone. It's useful just to relax, kick back, and effortlessly put your phone on this charger without the need for any wires (btw now you can use the wired earphones and charge at the same time). However, I've there's a massive problem. You need to place your phone perfectly in the middle (with very little room to move) or else it just wouldn't charge. I've run into this problem several times in the morning after I presI've put it on charge only to find out the next morning that I'm on 10%. So that's something to keep in mind, and that will hopefully be resolved with a larger apple made wireless charger coming up soon. It also heats up insanely while charging, so does your phone. So those are the two things to keep in mind before buying. Overall I'm quite happy with the product.

    Don't worry about the price, this charger works very well

    • Written by Curt T from South Beloit

    A couple of days before launch day, i purchased a charger by Insignia just to make sure I had a wireless charger when I picked up my iPhone X. I wanted to try the Mophie, and I was lucky to pick one up when I picked up my iPhone X from the local Apple Store.

    After picking up my phone, I went back to work and used the Insignia charger. I did pause the the downloading of apps other than the ones I needed for driving home that night. The phone was about 45% charged when I got to work, and it was about 65% when I left for home about 3 hours later.

    I hooked up the Mophie when I got home and put my iPhone on it. I unpaused the downloads because I was now on my home WiFi. I checked it out about an hour later, and it was almost fully charged. So this charger charged my iPhone X a lot faster than the insignia did.

    The profile of this charger is also smaller. It feels a lot sturdier, the base is the same size as the top (the insignia is smaller at the base so it feels like it will tip over easily), and it feels like it has a rubber coating on all sides, so it will not slip or slide around.

    The AC adapter is pretty big, but it needs to provide some ooommmphh to charge wirelessly.

    I knocked it down one start for the proprietary connector. In this day and age, I feel it should have had a USB C type connector at the base.

    It is definitely worth the money. Great build quality, great charging speed even through the otterbox case I have on my iPhone.

    Convenient way to charge

    • Written by Dan H from West Yarmouth

    I too am surprised by the negative reviews. I place my iPhone 8, in a Scorpio case, on the charger, without having to worry much about centering it, and the phone lets you know it's in contact and the base LED lights up. It then charges a little faster than the common 5-watt Apple iPhone charger with cord, a little slower than Apple's beefier new iPad chargers.

    The only thing that keeps me from awarding 5 stars is that unlike a plugin charger, you cannot power down your phone and charge it on the Mophie. If you do, it will start back up by itself. I will need to get in the habit of putting the phone in Airplane Mode to avoid being disturbed at night.

    Overall, the convenience of this charging method makes it worth the price.

    very good

    • Written by IRA B from NEW YORK

    comparison between the mophie and the belkin boost up
    1. contact surface is stickier which prevents the phone from sliding (by vibration) out of the charging zone.
    2. costs $ 20 less but $ 10 more then cost on amazon.
    3. diameter is about the same.
    4. placement on the charging zone about the same
    5. faster charging. but both charge slower than wired.
    6. both charge with case.
    2. dim and poorly placed 'charging' led light. should have been designed to shut off after full charge.

    Great Product!

    • Written by Ryan W from Newmanstown

    This is a really great product and I am glad I upgraded from my off-brand charger. This charger starts charging immediately once you place your device down. The LED indicator is really dim and subtle so its great for a night stand without making the room bright. One complaint though. I have a case made of TPU (full TPU with nothing else,) and it seems to stick to the rubber surface of the charger from time to time, otherwise, this is a great investment and worth the money!

    Not Otterbox friendly

    This charger works great with a thin case, but is not Otterbox friendly. Keeping one...sending another one back to the store!

    Great but Slow!

    • Written by Oguzhan T from Houston

    I really like this charger. It works just fine and looks great, but it takes forever to charge the phone. I am definately returning this product. I thoufht this was a rapid charger? More than an hour charge time give me about 30%.

    Wall plug too big

    • Written by Marcus S from COWRA

    Wireless chargers are so convenient provided you are not in a hurry. The only downside with this one is the size of the wall plug - like many adaptors it is too large to plug into a dual wall outlet if there is another device with a normal sized plug in the adjacent outlet. This is worsened by the crazy decision to design a square adaptor mounted on the diagonal, making it even wider than it's square dimensions suggest! So you can have the bedside lamp or bedside charging, but not both. A re-designed adaptor which allowed neighbouring plugs to share a dual wall outlet would earn a 5 star review.

    Good product

    • Written by Nobel N from Hamilton

    I bought this charging base instead of Belkin because it is cheaper but the quality of material used was excellent. My phone case is a thin one and works well. The only flaws are the charging light is hard to notice,the phone needs to be centred for charging to work and the power adaptor is big.

    Good build quality and it works well, but...

    • Written by James B from Pacific Pines

    ... it's let down by a silly design flaw. In an obvious case of form over function someone thought that it'd look good if they had the square transformer part of the plug twisted at 45° to the pins part of the plug. This means that the now diamond shaped top of the plug is too wide for most standard Australian 4-way power strips :(

    Apart from that, it functions well and charges my iPhone 8 Plus even through a Spigen case which has two credit cards in it. If it wasn't for the design flaw I'd give this 5 stars.

    Convenient but not perfect

    • Written by Dylan S from Milton

    The charging base is very well built, always charges on contact with no repositioning necessary and the rubberized texture holds your phone in place very securely. However, one of the biggest flaws in my opinion is the heat caused by the charger. I've noticed my phone (iPhone X) gets considerably warm during charging but it is not the phone itself heating up but the actual charging pad that gets hot which in turn heats up the device. I can't imagine this will be good for battery health in the long run. Lastly I have noticed that it charges ever so slightly slower than the included 5W charging adapter. I think this is caused by having a case on the device, I personally use the Apple leather case. Overall the product is very convenient but is definitely not without its flaws.

    Really Good Product

    • Written by David B from Nuneaton

    Really good product, happy with this purchase. I'd prefer it to be cheaper, like anything in life but does what it needs to do and has a good length cable so you can place it where you want. It does have a bit of weight to it, not heavy but you'll be surprised

    Works well but why does the adaptor take up 2 spots

    • Written by Kevin G from Mornington

    Instead of being square on, the adaptor is rotated to a diamond configuration resulting in it taking up to placed in the wall socket. Why!!!

    Works well

    • Written by Anthony P from Vernon Hills

    Bought this for my family so we can use it with our iPhone 8 and X's. It does what it's supposed to do and it works. The only complaint I have is after downloading iOS 11.2 on the iPhone 8 and X I don't see a faster charge based on what Apple has said, that in iOS 11.2 with a charger wattage like this one (Quick charge 12W) it would charge your phone much faster, almost 50% faster than a Lightning Port Cord. Other than that, this charging pad is great. It's black and sleek. The other pad Apple sells does not look good at all and is full of plastic, lines and logos. I highly recommend this pad than the other one. It also doesn't feel like it should be $60.00...

    Good for night only

    • Written by sarfraz N from dubai

    Wireless charger doesent charge fast enough. Good for sleeping time only. Where u DONT have to search for the cable to connect. When u woke up after 7hrs of sleep in the morning it may be around 95 to 100%.

    But if u want quick charging in the morning for iPhone X. Go for either 29w c adapter or 12w iPad charger. Charges quickly

    29w 52% in 30 mins.

    12w 36% in 30 mins

    5w 20% in 30 mins

    Nice design and size but stops charging

    • Written by Yevgen Y from Odessa

    During my first 5-6 charges using Mophie pad, my iPhone 8 Plus stopped charging shortly after it was placed on the pad. It happens 3 times and I don’t know whether it has something to do with charger or phone itself.

    Meh ...

    • Written by Christopher L from Mechanicville

    When it works, it is just fine. However, if you are not really precise about where you place the phone on the charger, it does not connect. I also found that it has poor performance when the phone is covered by a case. My leather case was exceptionally sensitive to placement.

    Very Basic, No Frills

    • Written by Roland M from Winchester

    Got this as an early Christmas present and yeah, it gets the job done.. but it has no other selling points that differentiate it from the rest. It does work with the Apple leather case on so don't listen to other reviews that say you have to remove the case first. I think it really depends on the case material and how thick it is. One thing that I wish this charging pad had was a lightning charging port instead of the standard AC plug. I always have a lightning cable with me but now when I travel I need to bring this things AC adapter too.

    All in all, if you're willing to spend $60 for a stationary charging pad that you probably won't travel with then yeah this gets the job done.
