    Charging Base Efficacy

    It is strange to read a number of negative commentaries for this product.

    I have several white colored charging pads by Belkin and several black colored charging pads also by Belkin, and they all seem to function well, although somewhat slow. For the overnight charging they work fine. Both I phone 8 and I phone X models’ batteries replenish their power to completion. The black colored pads are advertized to work with other brand name telephones as well. Indicator light is helpful. These pieces of equipment are not overpriced for their functionality. Even if Apple finally releases their own charging base, Belkin pads work quite all right for their purpose, and I am inclined to keep them.

    Again, it’s unusual to see negative commentaries. All Belkin products have proven reliable for me.

    Worthwhile purchase

    I own two of these. The separate plug-in cord disappears into the base, but the horizontal length of the charger could be shorter (it takes up the space of two sockets of a power strip).

    The tiny green led light on the charging pad is very helpful in indicating when my iPhone X is placed correctly and charging (the light is strong enough to be seen in daylight, but weak enough to stay discrete at night). The iPhone X vibrates once and briefly shows the battery indicator when beginning to charge. The iPhone X also charges wirelessly through a thick cow-leather case while on the pad.

    The inner rubber ring of the charging pad keeps the iPhone in place and prevents it from sliding on the pad. The pad is light-weight white plastic, nothing special to write home about: the top is matte, the bezel and sides are shiny. On my desk, the charger is usually not in use, therefore I appreciate that the white color blends in with the whiteness of the Ikea desk.

    By the way, Belkin has nice and well-designed packaging.

    Really Great but some problems

    The wireless Charging Pad is really great but its really slow when charging. I contacted Belkin support they told me that the reason why its not fast charging is due to the case. The Thicker the case the longer it takes. When I took of my case and put the phone on the pad it charges really quick. Thats the only down side, if you want fast charging you have to take off the case, but if your willing to wait you could leave the case.

    It gets the job done, however...

    Charges my iPhone X as expected. However, the only bad thing about this product is the fact that my phone has to be, literally, placed right on the middle of the pad for it to start charging. You may get away by placing it right off the center (I'm talking about a bit off, not too much) for it to charge properly

    Other than that, the pad works fine. Four stars because of the placing it on the center issue.

    A good product

    This wireless charger works pretty good. I’m satisfied with it. Works like they say.
    I have bought the iPhone 8 plus case and it charges the phone in the case which makes it nice.
    Overall it’s a neat little charger. I give it 4 stars.

    Is it worth it?

    I purchased this item with my iPhone 8+. I honestly thought it would be better than it is because of the price. Although the wireless charger comes packaged all nice and light weight easy to put together an easy to plug-in, the downside is I feel that it takes a while to charge the phone. I purchased this item because I have other Belkin products and I love them and they seem to work for me but if I could return this item and purchase a different brand I might of. Don’t get me wrong it definitely works and if you like the color white it looks beautiful but to charge the phone it takes a good amount of time.
