RAVPower, wireless charging with stand for iPhone
Among the many charging solutions offered by RAVPower, we have tested the two chargers of the line stand can not only charge your iPhone wirelessly, but also from real stand.
The model PCo68 of RAVPower offers a charging up to 10W, then able to take advantage of the fast charge 7.5 W on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X.
In the box we find the wireless charger, micro-USB cable is 120 cm and the user manual.
Aesthetically, this charger-stand is made of plastic and rubber of good quality and pleasant to the touch. A type of material surely appreciated, even if it attracts fingerprints and dust too much. The dimensions are 7.0 x 11 cm for 168 grams of weight.
The top is rectangular with rounded edges. At the bottom flows out the basis on which to rest your smartphone. The device remains firmly anchored to the stand, also thanks to the setting of the silicone base that protrudes a few millimeters to avoid accidental falls. On the back there are two large grills to dissipate heat.
The LED light is visible, and it indicates if the device is charging or is fully charged.
As you may have noticed by the items in the package, this model of the RAVPower does not include any power supply, for which the performance is linked to the type of wall charger that you use. If you do not have a power supply with the right power, the charging rate will be lower. There are no special indications on the type of charger to use, but this choice will affect the speed of charging of the RAVPower. In order to achieve maximum effectiveness, you have to use an adapter QC 2.0/3.0 to 15W or higher.
Using the 7.5 W, it is possible to recharge an iPhone X in about 3 hours and 50 minutes, a iPhone 8 Plus 3 hours and 4o minutes, a iPhone 8 in 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The charger RAVPower also integrates a series of security tools to prevent sovratenzione, over-current and short-circuit-proof.
The fact that this charger is in stand also allows us to charge your iPhone wirelessly, and it can be used comfortably at the same time. The 2 coils integrated to allow you to leave your phone to charge in a horizontal, or vertical. Works without problems also using the housing up to 3mm thick.
It is, therefore, a product that is versatile and convenient to be able to use the iPhone, even when in wireless charging. Attention only to the lack of the power supply if you are interested in a greater speed. The price is 21,99€.
The model PCo69 of RAVPower differs not only aesthetically, but also for the presence of the adapter. In the package we find the micro-USB cable by 1.2 meters, the user manual and the adapter QC3.0. This means that you can take advantage of the refill 7.5 W on iPhone X, iPhone8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and the charging by 10W on the Galaxy S9 and the other terminals Android compatible, without having to buy any adapter.
The charger is made in black plastic and rubber, but the shape is more rounded and modern, thanks to a base gloss with a small base in silicone to rest your smartphone. Also in this case we can use the wireless charging by placing the iPhone in both vertical and horizontal. The dimensions are equal to 7.0 x 12.0 cm.
The design is more sophisticated than the model PC068, but it seems also less robust as the stand emits some crunch if solicited more than expected. Nothing serious, but the previous model certainly gives a feeling of greater strength. The non-slip silicone keeps the charging base is firmly anchored to the surface and the iPhone. And no dust particles or streaks of fingerprints on the base.
It is very convenient in the light of the LED, which indicates the state of charging of the connected iPhone. On the back we find the air vents to dissipate heat.
With this model, without additional purchases, you can recharge an iPhone X in about 3 hours and 40 minutes, a iPhone 8 Plus in 3 hours and 3o minutes, an iPhone 8 in 2 hours and 20 minutes.
The adapter input is 12V DC / 2A output, 10W (on the iPhone we can take advantage of up to 7.5 W). Works without problems also using the housing up to 3mm of thickness to the smartphone.
This model has a design that is more refined and the original (but less robust), in addition to offering included the adapter for the quick charge. The price is 35.99€.
