Mophie wants in on the game as well as an accessory manufacturer, hence the reveal of the wireless charging base for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. This is a universal wireless charging pad that is able to deliver a quick and easy charging experience for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, as well as high-speed wireless charging up to 7.5W for compatible devices. The new iterations promise some pretty sweet features like wireless charging, better cameras and an all-glass design with a 5.8-inch Super Retina display and facial recognition software specifically on the X. It also comes with a pretty hefty price tag.

Do I need to use wireless charging? Each standard differed according to whether they used the 'induction' method, which requires a device to be placed on a charging plate, others worked over short distance and allows the charging of multiple devices or cars.
One way to keep partners, friends and other assorted loved ones happy is to make them feel good about themselves.
