Charging (fast) wireless: we tried a new pad by RAVPower
We have had the opportunity to try out a new wireless charger, with its support for rapid charging, RAVPower. Let's find out in our review.
This product is basically a wireless charger Qi. This is the most common standard for wireless charging, also adopted by Apple for its new iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The product allows you to reload without problems, also other device compatible Qi, not only iPhone then.
Standard Qi? Exact, as we have already said in other articles, this time Apple does things differently than is usual by introducing the support for open-standards-Qi-Wireless Power Consortium, are already on the market and, thus, to introduce new proprietary standards and make it incompatible with its smartphones with the sideburns charging the most widespread in the world, also in the bar and in the airports.
This pad is a wireless RAVPower is universal, supports fast charging at 10W and charging at 5W for devices that do not support the Quick Charge. Fast charging can only be achieved in the case where the pad of the charging is connected to a wall socket power supply with 15W or more, which is not included in the package.
We recall that in iOS 11.2, Apple has enabled support wireless charging as fast at 7.5 W on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X through the use of compatible accessories, then this will be the maximum charging rate possible.
The base is rather simple and basic. It has a rubberized coating on the bottom that helps to grip the surfaces. The indicator of the wireless base, then illuminates red, orange, or green to let us know the charging status. There are, as is tradition, RAVPower, and the full protections against overload, overvoltage and overheating.
We immediately appreciated his efficiency and his minimal design, suitable for all environments, from those most closely home to those in office.
Below some specifications:
We found good with this board, even if at first glance it seemed too light. The stability is then proved to be good and has not caused problems during the tests. The product seemed to have really good and allowed us to get a refill stable and secure, also rather fast. If you are interested, you can find the product on Amazon at 15,99€. Still, for our readers is available a discount code.
