Mophie has added a new, higher-power wireless charging pad to its line-up

Mophie today announced the launch of a new Qi wireless charger for Apple’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, the Mophie Charge Stream Pad+ at mobile technology conference.

Mophie says the Charge Stream Pad+ is its first universal high-speed wireless charging accessory, compatible with the fast charging capabilities of both Apple and Samsung devices.

As before, Mophie is using the Qi wireless power standard. However, while the old Wireless Charging Base supports 7.5W fast charge, the new Charge Stream Pad+ delivers up to 10W. If you have a compatible device that could make a significant difference in how long it takes to fully charge your phone.

Exactly how much difference depends on your particular device. The iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, for example, support 7.5 Watt fast charging. The Galaxy S9, meanwhile, bumps that up even more, to 9W fast charging. As you’d expect, the charger will automatically adjust how much power it’s delivering in order to get the quickest recharge while still being safe.

Made from fail-safe, temperature-controlling circuitry covered in a 360-degree thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating, the Charge Stream Pad+ comes in your choice of matte black or white so it looks fantastic on your desk or nightstand, no matter your decor. The rubberized, non-slip exterior grips and protects your smartphone from scratches and unintended slipping and sliding as it charges, meaning you can just drop your device on the pad and go about your business worry-free. And when you aren’t charging anything, you don’t have to fret about wasting energy — the pad maintains a low standby current when it’s idle.

Functionally, the pad works with all Qi-enabled devices including the iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X, and the Galaxy S9/S9+ as well as mophie’s Juice Pack cases for earlier iPhones. It also supports fast charging, powering up your tech using its 10W of power — that’s 2.5W more than the original Wireless Charging Base — and will optimize the output for whatever device you use, making sure you get the quickest charge possible. In addition, it charges through most lightweight cases up to 3mm thick, so you’ll never have to mess around with removing your case prior to dropping it on the pad.

Mophie ChargeStream Plus 10W Wireless Charging Pad Price

The Wireless Charging Base remains on sale at $49.95. As for the new Mophie Charge Stream Pad+, that’s available now, priced at $59.95.
