Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value for money
The RAVPower Wireless Charging Pad sells at $39.99, which is a low to average price for a Qi charger. Other devices in the market vary from $14.99 to $129.99, and the RAVPower one is probably the cheapest charger with this charging speed. This small, yet convenient device is a wise purchase, considering the quality, performance and price.
Pro High voltage
The RAVPower charger is capable of sending up to 10W of power. Regular charging speed is 5W. Few Samsung phones have the 9W fast charging and iPhone 8 and iPhone X can charge with 7.5W power. Considering this advantage, the RAVPower supports both options.
Pro Comes with essential accessories
The RAVPower charger comes with a 24W power brick Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger and a micro USB cable. If you don't have any spare cables and charging bricks laying around, this package will be very handy.
Pro Charges quickly
RAVPower charges the iPhone 8 battery from 0 to 100 percent in two and a half hours, whereas Mophie Charging Base completed the charge in over three hours and Belkin BoostUp Charging Pad did in almost four hours. The RAVPower wireless charger also does a great job at powering up the phone in only two minutes.
Pro Performance extras
RAVPower has a feature of letting you know when the phone is charging with a LED light on the front. It lights up orange when charging, green once it's done and turns off completely after a few seconds.
Pro Practical and portable
The wireless charging pad has a small, round metal body with non-slip ring on top and rubberized feet on the bottom. The silicone doesn't let the pad slide around the table and grips on the phone without scratching the surface of the device. The body is relatively small (3.5 × 3.5 × 0.6 inches) which makes it perfect for travel and everyday use.
Pro Charges various devices
As the name says, the RAVPower Charger is Qi-certified. This means that it can charge any device as long as it has the Qi (wireless power transfer) technology built in. As for Apple iPhones - only the 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X are Qi-certified. Older iPhones won't charge because they have metal bodies, which block the power transfer. Most of Android phones have the Qi technology.
Con Bulky power brick
The power brick is a bit bulky and can take up some extra space if you want to carry it around.
Con Gets dusty
The rubberized finish collects dust easily.
Con One charge at a time
Only charges one device at a time.
Con Gets hot while charging
It gets a little hot when you use it, which normal when it comes to phone chargers.
Con Only wall plug
The charger has to be plugged into a wall charger in order to work properly. Plugging it into your computer will not give the charger enough power.
Con Precise placement
You have to be precise at placing the phone directly in the centre of the pad. It is a single coil charger, which means it requires precise placement, especially with large phones.
