There are two major advantages to owning some of the newer flagship Android phones on the market and that is Fast Charging and Qi wireless charging. Not every phone has these features, but for the ones that do Qi wireless charging has been decent at best, but wireless charging is often much slower than traditional charging. Now you don’t have to worry about time, our Choetech T518 review takes a look at a Qi wireless charger that supports fast wireless charging on supported devices.
With a simple puck design, the Choetech T518 is slim, sleek, and minimal in looks but powerful underneath. Our review unit was silver in color and constructed of aluminum and plastics. It’s very lightweight and easy to slip into a bag, purse, or even your pocket. The outer ring lights up when charging your phone indicating that it is working (it also auto dims according to room lighting). The T518 has a 10W output which is what makes it the beast of Qi wireless chargers. Right now the Note5 and S6 edge+ are the only phones that support fast charging wirelessly but there will be more to come I’m sure. The T518 will charge all of your Qi devices even if they don’t support fast wireless charging, and this is probably one of the best on the market.
Ease of Use
The Chotech T518 is pretty simple to use, simply find an adapter that accepts USB and is at least 5V=2A, 9V=1.7A, plug-in the T518 and put your phone on it.
I found the T518 performed extremely well with my Note5 and charged it much faster than a regular Qi charger. The fast charging will only work with the Note5 or S6 edge+ but you will still be able to charge all Qi wireless enabled devices with this.
Currently priced at $45.99 on Amazon, this wireless charging pad is a real deal, especially if your phone supports wireless fast charging.
If you own a Note5 or a S6 edge+ this is a no-brainer purchase. The support for fast charging and having the ability to drop your device on the pad and never have to touch a wire is priceless.
