When Apple announced wireless charging with the iPhone X and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Apple showed a vision of a future where virtually every flat surface would serve as a wireless charger. Disappointingly for many who have taken Apple's words seriously, wireless charging has not evolved to be the super effective power solution that the Cupertino giant has put on display.
First, the concept of having tables in public places remained an accident of the future. However, the most pressing facts include that wireless charging is not entirely wireless and you still have to hook the charger to a power source, not as fast as the wired options, but above all, the chargers are not very cheap.
But a new device that defies the norm is the Anker PowerPort Wireless 10 wireless charging pad. The wireless charger with desirable qualities such as fast charging at 10 W, a standard Micro USB port, an advantageous price of only Rs. 2,299.
Let's take a look at other key features of this Anker wireless charger, starting with the contents of the package.
Anker PowerPort Wireless 10 comes wrapped in a compact box and not much to show off. Here is a look at what it offers.
The well packaged package contains:
- Anker PowerPort Wireless 10 Qi compatible wireless charging pad
- Micro USB cable
- User manual and warranty guide
Design and build
Anker PowerPort Wireless 10 has a very elegant and linear design. The charging pad has a square shape with remarkably curved corners, with a kind of contours along the edges. The edges are made of a translucent material and there are gods Blue LED under the shape of a ring. These LEDs light up when the charger is turned on or initially when a supported device is placed on it.
Anker's neatly designed wireless charger with only an Anker brand in the middle. The surface on the top has a matte finish and perhaps composed of a part of a foam that ensures a large friction that prevents the perched smartphone from falling.
Overall, the Anker wireless charger has a neat appearance and does not take up much space on the desk or bedside table, although the pulse LED can distract attention from time to time. Only I have that i LEDs do not continue to flash until a smartphone is not charging. This makes the LED almost useless. I wish the LEDs would light up every time you took your phone off the charging pad, which would have been useful especially at night.
The Anker PowerPort Wireless 10 charger certified for Qi wireless charging standards and supports all major smartphones with wireless charging support. These smartphones include iPhone X, 8 Plus and 8, as well as Samsung's flagship models, including Galaxy S9 and S9 +, S8 and S8 + and also S7 and S6 series.
I tried the Anker wireless charger with iPhone X and Samsung S9 +, charging the devices from 0% to 100% and noting the amount of charge at different intervals. The Galaxy S9 +, which has a 3,500 mAh battery, takes 188 minutes (3 hours and 8 minutes) to fully charge while the iPhone X with 2,716 mAh battery takes 220 minutes (3 hours and 40 minutes) . To use fast charging, you must use a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compliant charging device or later.
The wireless charger supports one charging speed up to 10 W on Android phones while limited to 7, 5 W on iPhone . This justifies why the larger battery in the Galaxy S9 takes less time to charge than the iPhone X, which has a relatively smaller battery. The 7, 5 W Belkin wireless charger we reviewed recently had a similar time on the iPhone X while it took another 30 minutes while reinforcing the S9 +.
