Choetech T513 3 Coils Qi Wireless Charger Review

Wireless charging at an affordable price

The Choetech T513 3-Coil Wireless Charger for Qi Enabled Devices has received generally good feedback from its users, but there are a few negative aspects to it as well. In this article, we’ll explore the pros and cons of buying this wireless charge, which you can currently find at around $16. The charger is built for standard charging and does not support fast charging. That said, wireless charging technology will be slower than if you use a cable.

Works with Samsung, Google Nexus  and other Android phones

The wireless charger works with Qi-Enabled devices, which includes most Samsung Galaxy models, Google Nexus and many other Android phones. For some phones which don’t have integrated Qi you’ll need to buy an adapter, as one is not included in the box.

It has 3 built-in coils, which gives it a wider charging area that allows you to place the phone in various positions without having to move it around to get to the perfect spot for it to start charging. It has safety features that don’t allow your phone to get too hot during charging. The manufacturer recommends that you take off any case you might have on your used phone, as it may affect charging time and might lead to overheating.

Pros

No Need for Precise Alignment

Thanks to its 3-coil system, the Choetech Wireless Charger doesn’t need you to move your phone around to make sure it’s in the correct place for its sensors to pick up the signal, and the connection is usually done very quickly. You can even rotate your phone and the charger will still recognize it and continue to charge it.

Design

The Choetech T513’s surface has a non-slip coating that prevents the phone from slipping out of its position during the charge as well as fingerprints all over the device. The model is a bit heavier than other wireless chargers, which gives users a sense of stability and, together with its chrome accent line on the sides, the device has a premium, high-end look and feel, while still remaining compact and lightweight. Users also like the small LED indicator that is not as bright as other chargers, which means it won’t disturb your sleep if you use it during the night.

Value for Money

This charger is among the best choices compared to the others available on the market for similar prices, in terms of charging speed, design, size and also the intelligent power saving and heat protection features.

Cons

Slow charging

This is not surprising, as a wireless charger will always be slower than a cable, so you’ll most likely need to leave your phone on this device overnight if you want to get to a full battery. If you want the wireless charger to work a bit quicker, you might want to try turning on Flight Mode on your phone and you might see faster results. It might not be a good purchase if your phone’s battery is very large, but it’s fine for smaller devices.

Overheating

Despite the fact that the charger automatically turns off when it detects a high temperature, some users have complained that their phones still get too hot. To avoid heat damage as much as possible, if you have a case on your phone you’ll need to take it off – this will also ensure that the charging is done properly.

In conclusion, the Choetech T513 Qi Wireless Charger is pretty good for its price and it’s well-designed, but some of its users are disappointed by its weak charging power and a lot of people have had problems with overheating despite the fact that the product promises to help you avoid these issues through its temperature sensor.
