I recently purchased an iPhone X and an OtterBox Defender case to protect it. Because the case has a protector for the lightning port and the size of the case also results in the port being recessed a bit, I found using my dock for overnight charging to be a bit cumbersome. I started to investigate wireless charging and, of course, after a short time my head was spinning. Many wireless charging accessory manufacturers provide caveats about using their devices with thick cases (or any cases, in some instances). In addition, the price range for these devices varies considerably. Finally, the brands vary, from quite well-known to “who are they?” so I was hesitant to pull the trigger on an investment in something that might or might not work. Ultimately, I found this Anker charging pad and, based on reviews and other information, it appeared that it would successfully work with my phone and case. I was also familiar with Anker’s products, having purchased a great little Anker Bluetooth speaker a few months ago. The charging pad arrived today and it has exceeded my expectations. I plugged it in and set my phone on it and it immediately started to charge. No futzing with placement, no problem with the case, just immediate responsiveness. Nearly an ideal size, feels solid. The cable is a bit short - probably about 3 feet. That’s not an issue for me since I have it on my nightstand but it could be an issue for others. This was an excellent investment. I’ll probably get another one to put next to my easy chair. Highly recommended.
