Choetech T535-S 5 Coil Wireless Charger Review

REVIEW – Ever since Apple decided to wander into the wireless charging club, I haven’t looked back to corded chargers. This time, I’m looking at a wireless charger with a whopping 5 coils, big enough for two phones at once.

What is it?

The Choetech T535-S is a wireless charging pad with 5 coils, and is fast-charge compatible (10W for certain Samsung phones, 7.5W for certain iPhones).

What’s in the box?

  • Charging pad
  • User manual
  • USB-C cable
  • Note: No charging “brick”.

Hardware specs

From the Choetech website:

【Premium & Stylish Design】Designed with anti-slip PU leather surface, not only provides sleek and modern style but also prevents your smartphone from sliding. The anti-slip pads on the bottom help keep your pad in place.

Design and features

This is probably the biggest charging pad I’ve ever seen. Even with a case on, it is slightly taller and wider than my iPhone XS. I measured 170mm long by 80mm wide.
The bottom of the charger features four rubbery feet and some ventilation slots. The wired charging port is on the long side, and is USB-C. Don’t have a USB-C cable? No worries, Choetech supplies one.  I almost missed it, but there is an LED indicator that glows green when charging your device. It’s just bright enough so it’s not terribly distracting at night. I don’t know if it changes color when your phone is full, because Apple doesn’t support that feature yet.

Setup

Choetech does not supply a power supply. If you want to take advantage of the fast charging feature, you’ll need your own Quick Charge 3.0 compatible charger. A “normal” one works fine, albeit slower.

Performance

Works great charging one phone, or even two at a time! Here’s an iPhone XS (left) and the slightly smaller iPhone 8 (right). Both charging simultaneously.

What I like

  • Fairly low profile without too much branding
  • Big enough for two phones
  • USB-C cable included
  • Green LED isn’t super bright, keeping you awake at night.

What needs to be improved

  • No charging brick included.

Final thoughts

If you’ve got your own QC 3.0 charger, this is the wireless charger to get if you’d like to charge two phones at once.
