i am thinking of wireless charging too to get rid of all the wire on my table. so the problem now is the heat issue? because before this i like to charge phone overnight (IP7). Since i going to buy Xs thinking whether it is suitable habit or not. another reason just to preserve the port. Was thinking those iphone + apple watch combo charger. but look like only those unknown brand got such combo charger.
If you're gonna be charging over night, get the McDodo auto disconnect cable. It'll ensure that it'll stop charging after reaching 100%.
Conversely, another member here (forgot her name, keep on thinking it's a she, could be wrong) have tested using the stock 1A charger. The phone itself will auto disconnect from charging, but once it drops a certain level, will continue charging. This shouldn't have that great an impact on your battery life, especially if you're just charging overnight. If you're super anal about your battery life, then might wanna get the cable, for more ease of mind. If you're fine with just leaving it as is, it's also fine. It's a phone after all, and more importantly, it's your
phone. Do what makes you feel happy and comfortable

Life is too short to worry bout battery. If degraded more than 80% just change new ones, given if u are going to use the phone for long term
USB tester bought from Shopee
Could you share the link you bought it from?
Also, it looks like there's also a usb-c in there right?
Thought of getting one.
Ditto on the battery life. Although it makes me feel good about my charging habits to know that my battery life is still at 100% after almost a year
As long as you know what you're doing, and are willing to accept the consequences, everything is fine.
Some people obsess about battery life because...well the phone really isn't cheap. Also some people, myself included, don't upgrade yearly, so maintaining a good charging habit helps to maintain the phone for x number of years. That's a good link to read actually. For those interested, could also look at the articles by battery university. Although the PC Mag one is a good one-stop.
I personally will only use the wireless charger if I'm in attendance when it's charging. Mostly due to the fact that I feel the phone physically warm when I take it off the charger. This is in an air-conditioned room to boot. YMMV of course. Convenience of not having to plug in the cable helps every now and then. Also, the point for having a Qi charger is to make sure your phone is topped up so it never drains below a certain percentage; keeps the phone in the happy range.
EDIT: If you're inclined, would you mind testing the wireless charger? To see if it cuts output when battery is at 100%. Thanks! No worries if it's too much of a hassle. Just curious is allThis post has been edited by marquis: Jul 26 2019, 01:00 PM
