I have tested it myself with usb power meters, AC outlet power meters, and my personal iPhone 8 Plus. At no point from 5 percent charge to 100 percent charge does my Anker wireless charging stand go above 6.5 watts. And not only did it used to, but it can still charge fully updated android phones at 10 watts. I still have access to an iPhone 8 on iOS 11 for testing, and can confirm that it does fast charge wirelessly on these same pads.

These are the pads I tested. I use them almost daily.

These are the usb power meters I used.
Thank you for that info. It's disappointing but maybe the reduced heat from the forced slower rate will improve battery longevity. Still, there should be an option in the settings to choose whether you want the full rate you used to get.

You're right that there isn't a data exchange handshake, but wrong that an OS level change can't prevent fast charging for some Qi standards. This is not related to the optimized battery charging setting.
A new fixed-frequency regulation was Apple passed with iOS 13.1. Only a few select wireless chargers from Belkin, Mophie, Native Union, Anker and Logitech that are sold through Apple Stores and support the fixed-frequency voltage that Apple recommends deliver the full 7.5W wireless charging speeds.

MacRumors notes that Apple refers to the fixed-frequency 7.5W charging as "Apple Fast Charging," but the technology was added to the Qi standard last year so it's not something that should fall under the Apple MFi program.
Not so. The transmitter (charger) and receiver (device) do negotiate through a bi-directional packet-based interface. It's described in Section 5 of the Qi spec.

As to why certain phones don't charge at a higher rate than the 5W Baseline Power Profile with some chargers, it's an unfortunate situation not unlike USB charging, where multiple fast standards, some proprietary, have emerged beyond the standard EPP spec. Everyone prefers their own way of doing "fast" charging, and it's a bit of a mess. Just substitute Qi for USB.

At least on the wired side, things are kind of converging, with cross compatibility between USB-PD and QC4+, but on the wireless side, no such luck yet.

And as usual, users have to sort out the mess.

I had this one before. It stopped working after a few months. I contacted the company because they said it's 18 month warranty. They said they would be willing to give me a replacement but they needed to ask "a few questions" to investigate why it stopped working and would like me to send it back to them. It's ridiculous since they asked me one to two questions at a time, and I had to take multiple pictures to show them which wall charger I used, bla bla blah. And those questions they asked me were just like I were completely clueless not know to use this pad, therefore, it stopped working lol. Eventually I said it's just a waste of our time emailing back and forth (5-6 emails) for 10 bucks. I gave up. I have had 3 different products from them but I decided not to but anything from them anymore because their customer service is not professional. They just need to stop saying "18 month warranty" then it's fine.

I invite you to experience by yourself if you want. Good luck!
Sound like my experience with "B a n gg oo d"

Don't buy this. At least with my iPhone X, about 15-20% of the time when I put it on my night stand before bed, I wake up with no charge. I always check to make sure it shows the charging symbol too after it makes the DING sound (that it's charging).

After a couple of months I finally took it and threw it across the room. It's a piece of crap.
Thank you! This solidified my decision not to buy this.

Are you serious!?
Yes. They even say as much on the product page. The second photo on the product page specifically states it can't get more than 5W charging on an iPhone if you use iOS 13.1 or above.

This seems unusual for Anker. I own several of their products and they have even replaced them for free after the warranty expired. Great company IMHO.

No sweat.
I'm a fool too b/c I got this from a previous FP deal here on SD and someone else had mentioned the same thing how sometimes he/she would wake up and the phone wasn't charged. None the wiser...
Glad I saved you the $$. I'm guessing it has to do with this being circular and not a pad... but who knows.

I do have a circular one and it works FANTASTICALLY. I can't think of the brand off the top of my head though cause I got it as a gift and I don't have it with me atm.

Tried this with my iPhone 11 for the convenience.

Even with the standard charge rate it had to be placed incredibly precisely to start charging. It just was not worth the hassle to me to have to work on the exact placement every time I wanted to use it.

Will these wireless chargers work with an Otterbox Defender case?

I assume if I insert a magnet in between (car mount), this will definitely not work.

Just an FYI - Apple crippled quick charging for this pad. So if you have an iPhone, it's just regular charging speed (assuming you've updated your iOS in the last few months).
How many posts begin with "Just an FYI - Apple crippled..."?

Anyway, to measure the charge amps/Volts/Watts I use and like this USB power meter:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

And I just bought three of the previous gen refurb Ravpower wireless pads:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

It works well and is currently $5.60 after clipped coupon. I would have posted it but they claim to only have <10 left. It works through my Otterbox Defender case on my LGV35.

Wow, good deal. I just got one of these in case the other one doesn't work. Thanks!

Also, thanks for confirming that it works with the thick Defender case.

Above 5W Pixel 3 & 4 must use the Pixel Charging Stand, or the Belkin Licensed Pixel Stand for Rapid charging. This one may work below 5W.

Wireless charging on Pixels is unreliable at best, and damaging from overheating at the worst.
