Every single one of my Nokia Qi chargers works with the iPhone 8 Plus. Through the Apple case. It’s good to have standards.

My 8+ will arrive tomorrow, so I am thrilled.
Will a Nokia Fatboy pillow be a good option? It's simply looking gorgeous.
Any recommendations welcome!

To buy a new one is not a good option, if you already have one, than it's ok. If I got it correctly, Apple will update the charging software, so you can charge the iPhone with 7.5 W. So far you can only use 5W. If you 're going to buy a new one, buy one with the ability to charge with 7.5W in the future.

Bought a new sealed one, Nokia DT 900 red. It was a bargain at 12 EUR.Last item in stock. Thanks for the tip, Karl.

Yeah. I was surprised as well, that Apple did not introduce the proprietary iCharge thingy that reinvents wireless charging at twice the price...

...they are trying though. Charging mats coming 2018. I will try not to fall for it. ;)

In a positive way. I ordered the plus. Am looking forward to it.

I bought a cheapo Qi charger for $11 and it’s great! No more daily frustrating fumbling around in the dark struggling to plug my phone in on my nightstand while my wife is sleeping! It charges all night so I don’t care how slow it is. My only problem now is that i can’t put it facedown any more to block the light of incoming notifications but that’s easily solved with a well placed water bottle.

Why don‘t you put it into do not disturb mode at night? This can be automated.

Volker Weber, 2017-09-28

I go to bed at different times so automation wouldn’t work. I like the mute switch better anyway. It’s easier to hit and when I can’t sleep and am using my phone in bed in the middle of the night mute keeps it quiet, which is an absolute requirement for keeping my sleeping wife happy (happy wife, happy life...)

Bill, I see so much potential for improving your life. :-) And it's quite simple: go to bed at the same time every day. Leave your phone and your watch in the kitchen to charge it there. Get up early. It only takes a week and you will sleep much better. Happier wife, happier life. :-)

Thanks, not gonna happen, especially on weekends!
