Since the QI wireless standard was released many wireless charging cases have come and gone for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. After all, just because there is a wireless standard doesn’t mean that the standard wireless charger is made at a high quality. There are still many factors in play including the materials used, the manufacturing process, and the company’s quality assurance.
The standard has been out long enough that we are ready to crown the Cheotech Wireless charger the best wireless charger for the iPhone 5s.
What Makes this the Best?
One of the awesome things about the QI standard is that companies don’t have to spend millions of dollars on research and development to come up with their own wireless solution an patent. Instead they can use the standard and their own engineers can spend more time on developing a product instead of inventing the technology. This keeps the cost of manufacturing very low which in turn passes the savings on to the customers. So, any QI charger you see with be much cheaper than the predecessors such as the PowerMat which entered the market at will over $100 for the case and base.
So not only is the Cheotech a very affordable wireless charing solution (costing only $40 at the time of this publication for the wireless charging case and base) but it is also well made and has stood the test of time as a reliable solution as well.
It doesn’t get any easier than this. It’s literally plug and play. No instructions necessary. Plug the base into the wall and put the case on your phone. That’s it. Nothing to it.
Easy to Use
Simply place the iPhone on the dock and a blue light illuminates letting you know the phone is charging. It’s as easy as one, blue, three…
The Case is Great
Since this is a charging case it would stand to reason that there would be an expectation of some protection to the phone itself. This case offers that in a minimalistic design that doesn’t add a bunch of bulk like others on the market but still provides a great deal of protection. I’m not saying you should throw your phone into the payment but if you did happen to drop it it would likely survive. With this case there isn’t the feeling of wireless charge first and protection second. Both were clearly on the mind of the designers.
So if you are looking for a wireless charging solution but don’t want to break your wallet for a name brand this is an excellent choice that will both charge wirelessly and protect your phone. At less than $40 this wireless charging case and base costs less than many cases on the market. In fact, this maybe something to consider if you are just in the market for a new case and haven’t ever even considered wireless charging before.
There are many Qi enabled wireless charging cases and bases out there on the market. This base aims to make things simple by its compatibility with all Qi products. If you have purchased or plan to purchase a case that says Qi in the product name then it will likely be compatible with this inductive charging base. It’s time to lose the cord and go wireless! The PowerBot is the way to do it! The device is easy to use. Simply plug it in and set your phone on top and you are charging away.

In our quest to make your tech life easier and less complicated we have developed the RP-WCN7. This remarkable charger eliminates the need for fumbling around with wires and taking 20 attempts to correctly connect the charger to your mobile phone. Simply plug the charger into a wall outlet and lay your phone on the “mat” to begin charging. When your phone is full charged, simple remove it from the “mat”.
QI Inductive Charging Technology is a cutting edge technology, which allows for eliminating charging wire and adapters.
