We live in a time where we are consistently surrounded by technology and having a need to want everything to be instant or as quick as possible. The same goes for mobile phones. Day to day life depends on them more and more and of course with that comes the issue around battery life.
While mobile phone batteries have improved over the last few years and the overall the length of time they last is a lot better. We have fast charging USB leads, portable battery chargers and now even wireless charging.
Now I’ve tried a few different wireless chargers since getting my Samsung Galaxy S9+ a few months ago. My partner has an Anker wireless charger that he has used for a couple of years now and has never had any issues with it. While that one did the job sadly Anker no longer make that particular one anymore so I was back to the drawing board to find a new wireless charger.
My budget was around twenty pounds. Now there are plenty of good options out on the market. After taking to Amazon and a few other local retailers I first picked up a Juice wireless charger. Needless to say I wish I hadn’t wasted my time with it. It was terrible.
Luckily I managed to pick up a Belkin Wireless Charging Pad from Argos on offer. For just £14.99 instead of £30, I thought I had a good deal but I was still slightly sceptical from my previous experience.
I’ve been using the charger now for about a week and I can not fault it at all. It does exactly what it says on the box. The charging pad its self is a good size, it chargers through my phone case fine and the lead doesn’t drop out of the USB port and the lead is of a good size. On average it takes around 2-3 hours to do a full charge and that isn’t too much more than if I was using my usual phone charger.
So if you are looking for a good wireless charger I would recommend the Belkin Wireless Charging Pad. It’s compatible with a variety of Qi-compatible phones including a lot of the more recently released phones. In all honesty I would have happily paid full price for it.
