I have a feeling this deal will sell out quickly, so grab it while you can if you’re looking for a cheap wireless charging stand. Today only, Woot has the Mophie Universal Wireless Multi Coil Charge Stand on sale for $8. It’s been out a few years and only charges at up to 7.5-watt speeds, but it’s designed to work with any iPhone that has wireless charging capabilities — or any Qi-enabled Android phone. Unless you get into Apple’s MagSafe wireless-charging universe, which can get expensive, wireless charging speeds top out at 7.5 watts for iPhones.
This is a stand but it also slides flat into a bed, so you can charge your phone vertically or horizontally. I used this model a while back and it worked relatively well, but some people have complained it won’t charge your phone if it has a thicker case on it, and that’s probably its biggest downside. The latest wireless charging stands could be a little better, with wider charging sweet spots and potentially faster charging, particularly for Android phones that support 15-watt wireless charging. But this wireless charger is only $8 and it’s certainly tempting at that price, despite being an older model. Note that it costs.
As I said, the sale is on for today only or until the product sells out. There’s a limit of one per customer and shipping is free for Amazon Prime members. It should arrive by the end of the month.
