Logitech Charger Review: Does This Wireless Charger Have What It Takes to Stand Out from the Crowd?

Wireless chargers are plentiful, so how do you stand apart and earn a spot on my bedside nightstand? The folks at Logitech believe they've figured out a way  and they sent me the POWERED for iPhone ($69.99) to try. It's a stylish, rounded-edge, Apple-esque phone stand that holds any modern iPhone in both portrait and landscape mode while charging using the 7.5 watt Qi charger. It even accommodates the iPhone XS Max in a non-metal case up to 3 mm thick.

There is a ledge that holds the phone in place horizontally, ensuring it is positioned well for charging using the substantially-powered Qi charging coil. The stand has a rubber base, so your phone is likely to stay put even throughout numerous vibrating notifications. 

In order to deliver the full power required, the POWERED wireless charger does use a proprietary wall charger, which is included. It is only sold in white, which looks great, but I'd like to see a black option. There's a small LED on the back to indicate charging, which is reassuring and not annoying at night like some charging indicators are.

Pros

  • Substantial base
  • 7.5 watts
  • Works in portrait and landscape mode
  • Attractive rounded design
  • Accommodates large iPhones and cases

Cons

  • Requires proprietary wall charger (included)
  • Only sold in white

Final Verdict

The Logitech POWERED for iPhone charging stand does stand out from the pack!
