Thanks for posting OP.

Pretty critical showstopper here for me as the price will essentially double unless you've got a bunch of quick chargers lying around:

Correct. It's just a pad.

However, how do you charge your phone now? Don't you have fast charger already?
Just attach this pad to your existing charger and you are all set!

That's for phones that are not already wireless charge capable. It's an adapter.

I think IGGUS is right. If you look at the pictures, there's one that shows what's in the box. The wire is a USB wire - so you need the adapter to plug into a wall. And that adapter will need to be the 15W+ for fast charge.

edit: Just read the description, and actually sounds like how you describe. So... I dunno.

IMHO correct description should be PAD, not Charger. There is no charger in this set, you have to supply yours

Important to understand, wireless chargers DO NOT "fast charge"... unless you're using a samsung phone.

What people think "fast charging" means is the various versions of QuickCharge. Wireless charging does not have QC capability. Wireless charging is as slow as using a regular - non-QC - plug. Like if you charge your phone connected to a USB port on your pc.

The confusion is because samsung evidently has their own hardware trick to charge batteries faster (than non-QC), and who knows who's to blame but this advantage got coined "fast charging" and manufacturers ran with that term in misleading advertising practices because it's so similar to "QuickCharge" the avg consumer mixes up the two. The reason the FC term is so common despite being only for one type/brand of phones is because samsung = #1 [android] by far... so, demand, check, misleading/confusing advertising that's beneficial to their brand/product, check... aka here we are.


UNLESS what I was told before was wrong. Apologies if so. Feel free to correct if so.



edit: Just read up on this a little. Apparently, the only QC tech samsungs support is QC2... which is 4 years old. Because samsung didn't want to pay the licensing fee to qualcomm (makers of QuickCharge), they created their own boosted charging to compete/as an alternative since they didn't have QC. However, QC is WAY > FC. Samsung is shit lol.

So... if you have a samsung, you do need one of these wireless chargers claiming FC unless you want to charge at a snail's pace (i.e. usb/PC port charging). So this "FC" term crap is infuriating because it is NOT... fast... charging. It's just faster-than-5+-year-old-charging-speeds. smh...

Yes.
Ravpower from my experience make quality products.
New iPhone users won't benefit from fast wireless charging function.
It's fast charging for supported phones only with a QC2.0/3.0 wall charger.

It takes my S8 (3000mAh) 3 hours to fully charge with my Tronsmart fast wireless charger.
It takes over 4.5 hours to fully charged with my Nokia Qi pad.
