Review: Impressive 5-coil Qi Wireless Charging Pad from Choetech

I have a love-hate relationship with wireless charging. It's great and I have Qi chargers all around the house. But sometimes I will wake up in the morning to find my iPhone didn't charge overnight because it was slightly off-kilter on my charging pad. This is where the T535-S PowerDual 5 Coils Fast Wireless Charger Pad ($39.99) from Choetech shines.

The PowerDual has a whopping five coils in small package! It cannot realistically charge five devices at once, but the layout ensures that one or even two phones should be able to charge as long as they are placed predominately on the pad. The PowerDual uses the included USB-C cable for fast wireless charging.

The PowerDual looks nice, so it can be right at home on your bedside nightstand, thanks to an all-black, fake-wood design. They did not include an A/C adapter so you'll need one that can generate enough current to support five coils.

Pros

  • A whopping five coils in small package
  • USB-C cable for fast wireless charging
  • All black with fake wood design
  • Place phone almost anywhere to charge

Cons

  • A/C adapter not included

Final Verdict

The oddly named T535-S PowerDual 5 Coils Fast Wireless Charger Pad from Choetech should be able to charge your wirelessly charged devices without requiring precision on your part.
