The new generation of iPhone—iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus share some exciting new tech including the powerful Apple A11 Bionic chip, snazzy new dual cameras (except iPhone 8) and for the first time, wireless charging. Unfortunately, there’s no wireless charger out-of-the-box, but hey, there are options out there (until Apple’s own AirPower wireless charging pad comes next year).

RavPower is a US-based company, well known for their charging accessories. It is Qi-certified and is applicable on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the iPhone X, up to 7.5W fast charge. The output makes it 50% faster than traditional 3.5W outputs. The wireless fast charging pad is portable and comes with a built-in battery indicator.

Samsung Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand (MYR272)
Samsung’s wireless fast-charging stand is one of the more common and popular options when it comes to wireless accessories. It supports up to 9W fast charging and works great with Samsung Galaxy devices. Being a Qi-certified charger, you’ll be able to use it with the new generation of iPhones too. The only caveat, not fast charging. The charge stand also comes with a high-powered USB wall plug to power the phone itself. If you wish to purchase the Samsung Wireless Charger, head over to a Samsung Experience Store, authorised Samsung retailers online and offline.

The iPhone X is undoubtedly Apple’s best and most radically-designed smartphone to date. It features an all-new glass-metal design with an all-screen 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display, cutting-edge TrueDepth camera with FaceID, powerful A11 Bionic chip, incredible 12MP dual cameras, wireless charging, just to name a few. It runs the latest iOS 11 out-of-the-box.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are more conventional upgrades in the iPhone line, but share much of their underpinnings with the iconic 10th anniversary iPhone.
