The Choetech 7.5W wireless charging pad is a great buy for anybody looking to charge wirelessly on a budget. It provides enough power to charge an iPhone X through most cases, although it can be a bit finicky when it comes to a slightly thicker case like the Luxury Book for iPhone X. How you position your iPhone on the pad is very important. They recommend taking your iPhone out of the case when charging for best results, our own tests have confirmed this. However, the price and quality are hard to beat on a budget as it clocks in at around $15. Check it out.
