Need more proof that the new iPhones will have wireless charging? Here's a $50 stand


RAVPower, the maker of all things powerbank and charging, has given us one more tangential evidence that the upcoming iPhone crop will indeed feature a wireless method to pump them full of electrons. It has apparently already in production of a wireless charging stand with the Qi standard that can output no less than 10 watts of power, or double what the wired iPhone chargers provide, due to the inevitable power loss when charging through the ether. 

Thus, the RAVPower chief has sent the following statement which all but confirms that the company has inside sources credible enough to result in a final retail product for charging future iPhones wirelessly:


While LG has a 15-watt wireless charger on the market, Apple is likely going to keep it safe, and provide a more standard output, which, coupled with the rumored new glass housing of the upcoming iPhones, should charge them almost as quickly as if they were connected to a cable. 

Samsung's newest wireless charging convertible pad takes about two hours to fully charge a Galaxy S8, while doing the same thing by wire takes about an hour and a half, so we will be pretty curious to see whether the new iPhones can charge wirelessly with the same speed as with the regular charging cable provided in the box.

Doesn't look like distance wireless either. Hearts and egos will be broken on launch day.

Finally with iPhone now having wireless charging, wireless charger manufacturers will release more fast QI chargers which have been lacking the last 5 years or so for Android.

Where were these charger manufacturers before? I'm only asking because Apple's wire charging takes forever to charge.

Sure they're gonna go with Qi standards? Doesn't sound like something apple would do...they're all about proprietary.

Yeah, they've reinvented it by charging slower than the competition LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

So what did they reinvent exactly?

I guess you have already tried the note 8 then. Is it really that laggy like you've been saying for the past 4 months?

But you're ma biach so you're supposed to listen to me not the other way around. Go play with your phone for an hr and do your HW afterwards.

Really?? I thought that zealous were espousing that the charging would be done over the air (with no charging mat). That was the implication that was given as to true wireless charging being reinvented.

Let's be real here...the only person who thought the distance charging tech was going to be a reality is Bankz. His entire rumor list he flaunted for so long, is falling apart as we get closer to new iPhone season.

You are giving iphone fans pretty bad name with ur "Reinventing" comment.

So revolutionary. Like the new iphone OLED screen. Much wow.

No just hypocritical - All the zealots have some explaining to do but i expect they will all back pedal now as more and more is revealed to not be the revolution they thought. Now that Apple is including these features the same way I wonder if they will say the features are useless gimmicks?

apple will say they were the first to offer wireless charging, no doubt.

Don't you troll every article that isn't Apple-related? Get off your high horse and take a seat.

This is done right......effortless. The implemention is great. s/

I would not be interested in this... regular dock is so much cheaper, millions of designs, and takes just as much effort to put the iPhone on a dock just like this but with a lightning port at the bottom...

Why do I want this, or any other charging device, taking up space on my desk? Is it supposed to have some ornamental value? Perhaps it could double as a picture frame?

Apple fans since 2010 Who is gonna buy that big phablets? Phones with bigger than 5 inch screens are hideous! Who needs water resistance? Just don't go near water! Wireless charging is a gimmick, it has wire! Who needs fast charging when our battery is so small! Amoled is a washed up trash! Metal is superior, glass backs are finger print magnets! Bigger bezels are actually better to hold and more ergonomic!
