Technology has evolved a lot and the consumers started adopting easy and short tech accessories to make the life simple and save time. Wireless products are becoming popular in many categories like Bluetooth speakers, keyboards, mouse, wifi, etc., Likewise in recent days, the popular flagship mobiles are shipped with Wireless charging facility to make charging easier for the customers. But, most of the smartphone manufactures not selling or sending the wireless charger along with the device. Also, if the customer wants to buy the wireless charger officially from the manufacturers it would cost many dollars $.
Thinking for an affordable wireless charger for your smartphones? Here is one of the recommended wireless charger from Choetech. Choetech is a Chinese brand dedicated to wireless charger, car charger, solar charger, wall charger, cables&hubs etc. I have received the Choetech T520 QI Fast Charge Wireless Charger Stand for review and here is my opinion about the same.
Choetech T520 QI Fast Charge Wireless Charger Stand Review:
The wireless charger has a sleek and compact design. Choetech has used polycarbonate aluminium for this product and it looks premium. Also, the main attraction of the device is its look. Most of the wireless chargers available in the market are just comes with a flat design, but Choetech takes this charger in a different way. They have designed it like a mobile stand (vertical).
There is an LED indicator which glows Blue for standby and Green while charging. The device has a 2 coil design, which allows you to place your device in either portrait or landscape position. The wireless charging connection is possible up to 5mm, which means the T520 should work without you needing to remove your phone case.

FAST Wireless Charger: Up to 1.4x faster than standard wireless charging pad, super high efficiency and save your time. Charges your phone up decently and not having to plug in and out each time! Also, it doubles as an upright stand for your phone whilst charging.
Twin Coil Charger: As long as your phone sits on the cradle properly it will charge, it is NOT as irritating as some of the expensive chargers out there that you have to align it properly to get it to start charging. The much wider charging area allows you to place your phone in a free position.
Sleep-Friendly LED Indicator: Soft LED lights to indicate charging status but dim enough at night, it’s barely noticeable which ensures No beep, No annoying lights even next to the bed while charging. If you want to charge your phone overnight you will find when it reaches full it will switch off.
Safe Charging: It’s normal for the pad and phone get warm slightly during charging, but the Temperature Control ensures safe charging and improves the life of your phone! Overcurrent/voltage protection, short-circuit protection and foreign body detection, never overcharges your battery or wastes energy. The PHONE CASES is suggested to be REMOVED while charging.
My usage and Performance:
When comes to the performance it took around 85 to 90 mins to charge the Samsung Galaxy S8+ to 80% with Qi 2.0 Charger. Also, for iPhone 6 (using the wireless adaptor) it took around 60 to 65 mins to charge from 20% to 90% using a standard charger.
The Twin Coil setup makes you charge your phone either in a vertical direction or in a horizontal direction. So you can able to see the notifications while charging which is a handy feature. The safe charging protection stops charging the device when it gets overheated, also protects from Overcurrent/voltage, short-circuit and foreign body detection.
