You can use a high quality wireless charging pad to charge an iPhone, a Samsung phone, or other Android smartphones.
Here is how to use a wireless charging pad:
Step 1. Put the wireless charging pad on a level surface so that it can more easily align with your phone.
Step 2. Connect the wireless charging pad to power supply with the power adapter and the cable that come with the box.
Step 3. Put your phone onto the center of the wireless charging pad with the phone screen facing up.
The wireless charging pad will recognize your phone immediately and start charging it. And you will see the battery charge icon at the top right corner. See How to Know If Your Wireless Charger Is Charging Your Phone Or Not.
Please note that if your wireless charging pad is not case friendly, you need to remove your phone case if there is one.
It’s better to turn off the vibration mode during wireless charging because too many notifications in the vibration mode will cause the phone to shift position, which would cause the wireless charging pad to stop charging your phone.
If you want to use your phone during wireless charging, such as watching movies, using map apps, facetiming, doing calls, etc. you should use a wireless charging stand. It can hold your phone up and you see your phone screen in a good view.
Here is how to use a wireless charging stand:
Step 1. Put the wireless charging stand on a level surface so that it can stand well and hold your phone more easily.
Step 2. Connect the wireless charging stand to power supply with the power adapter and the cable that come with the box.
Step 3. Put your phone vertically or horizontally with the back attached onto the stand.
There are 2 wireless charging coils in a wireless charging stand so the charging area is much wider and you can charge your phone in vertical or in horizontal.
Make sure your wireless charging stand is case-friendly if you want to use a case on your phone during charging.
Again we recommend you turn off the vibration mode to avoid phone position shifting in case there are to many notifications and calls.
If you have a fast wireless charger, you need to use a QC 2.0 or 3.0 power adapter to activate the wireless charger to charge your phone in the fast charge mode.
Below are the steps to use a fast wireless charger:
Note: Make sure your phone supports fast wireless charging.
Step 1. Put the fast wireless charger on a level surface.
Step 2. Use a QC 2.0 or 3.0 power adapter to connect the wireless charger to power supply.
Step 3. Put your phone onto the center of the wireless charger with the phone screen facing up.
