REVIEW – When it comes to wireless chargers, I have a few features that are important to me. I want to be able to use the charger with my phone in portrait or landscape orientation and I want to be able to use my phone while it’s charging. The newest Qi charger that I’ve had the opportunity to test is the Lisen wireless charging stand. Let’s check it out.
What is it?
The Lisen wireless charging stand is a Qi wireless charger that features an adjustable phone holder.
This wireless charger stand supports: 10W Fast Charge Mode for Note10/ Note 10+/S10/S10E/S10+/S9/S9+te9/S8/S8+te8/ S7/S7 Edge/S6 Edge+; 7.5W Fast Charge Mode for iPhone 12/11 /11 Pro/11 Pro Max/XS/MAX/XR/8/8 Plus; 5W Standard Charge Mode for Google Pixel 3/3XL and all other Qi-enabled Cell Phones.
What’s in the box?
- Charging base
- Smartphone holder
- USB-C cable
- Screw and Allen wrench
Design and features
The charger requires some minimal assembly before you can use it. You need to attach the main stand support to the base with the included screw using the included Allen wrench.
You can then slide the phone holder/charger into the support. The holder/charger has curved hooks that hold the phone and are lined with rubber to protect the edge of the phone from scratches.
The phone holder is adjustable both up and down, as well as the angle.
The included micro USB cable plugs into the back of the holder. Note that the Lisen charger does NOT come with an AC adapter. You’ll need to plug the micro USB cable into an AC adapter that you already have or a USB port on your computer.
I had no issues using the Lisen wireless charger to charge my iPhone 12 Pro Max and various other phones with wireless charging capability in portrait orientation and even landscape orientation for the iPhones.
The only real issue I have with this charger is that the phone holder part of the stand is a little wobbly on the post/support. It’s not bad enough that I feared my phone would fall off, but the wobble makes it feel cheap.
What I like
- The base is heavy enough that it doesn’t slide around on your desk
- It has an adjustable height and angle
What I’d change
- Improve the stability so it doesn’t wobble
I prefer a pedestal style wireless charger over a pad style charger. That’s because I like to be able to see the display and/or do FaceTime or Marco Polo chats with my phone while it is charging. The Lisen charger lets you do that and as long as you don’t mind the wobble, this wireless charger is nice because both the angle and height are adjustable.
