What’s included in the box?

  • PowerWave Pad 10W Max
  • 4ft Micro USB Cable
  • Quick Start Guide

After going through this unit and testing it for a few days. I have come to the conclusion that this is a fantastic wireless charger for your nightstand, around the house or in the kitchen.

If you need super-fast charging, I would recommend using your stock charger but having it around the house is a convenient way to keep your phone topped off.

Full Details:

  • The Anker Advantage: Join the 30+ million powered by our leading technology.
  • The Need for Speed: A high-efficiency chipset provides 10W high-speed charging for Samsung Galaxy, while iPhones get a boosted 7.5W charge that’s 10% faster than other wireless chargers. FOR BEST RESULTS, use a Quick Charge adapter (9V/2A) for Samsung Galaxy and iPhone charging.
  • LED Indicator: The LED indicator lets you know the charging status. If the indicator is FLASHING BLUE, check to make sure that there are no objects between your phone and the charging surface. If the indicator is FLASHING GREEN, make sure you are using a 5V/2A or above adapter, or try a different adapter and cable.
  • Case Friendly: Don’t fumble with your phone case. PowerWave transmits charging power directly through protective cases. Rubber/plastic/TPU cases UNDER 5 MM THICKNESS ONLY. Magnetic and metal attachments or cards will prevent charging.

Thanks again to Anker for sending this unit out.
