Phone Charging

Post by daveskis » Fri Sep 15, 2017 9:12 pm

Am I to understand that assuming I buy a new iPhone 8 that the phone will now be charged wirelessly in the spot. The phone now supports Qi charging.

Correct, I am definitely going to switch to new iPhone. I also expect to see a bluetooth support for Apple CarPlay.

Will need to be careful if you get the 8 plus to see how well it fits in the charging box. Having trouble consistently charging my note 8 due to its size

At the moment I am trying to justify the 10. It will fit, quite nicely. Hmmmm.

That's because Note 8's length is 162 mm, iPhone 8 plus's one is 158 mm, and max. allowed is 160 mm.

My phone does not have wireless charging, however the improved signal would be welcome. In any case I will want to put my phone in during journeys.

Will the charging damage my phone? Can't find an answer on the internet, but presumably the magnetic field is always there to detect a phone?

No, it will not. My iPhone 6s plus works the same after being in the phonebox for almost 2 months, each time I drove my bear.

That "improved signal" seems to be a gimmick in my case. When I put my phone [Samsung S7] in the Phone Box the signal gets actually weaker and people can barely hear me. I used it maybe few times and every time phone gets pretty hot from wireless charging. I avoid putting the phone there unless I really need to charge it.

I have found that the signal is better in the phone box.

Yes, the new iPhone does have wireless charging, only about 3 years after Samsung, cutting edge. Best part of £1k for a new iPhone.... No thanks.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.
