3.0 out of 5 stars Does a great job of charging my 5S, 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forrader Power Qi i100 Qi Standard Wireless Charger Receiver Case for iPhone 5/5s (Wireless Transmitter Pad Be Required) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Does a great job of charging my 5S, although when fully charged the phone **occasionally** throws up an 'unsupported accessory' message and charging stops, but as the message only appears when charge reaches 100%, this is not a problem for me. Removing the phone from the charger momentarily will restart the charge process.

Very thin, fits well, and doesn't add unnecessary bulk to the phone. The headphone socket at the base will only accomodate plugs of similar diameter to the standard issue Apple headphones, so if you have a larger plug, or right-angle plug for example, they would not be suitable for use with this case fitted.

Charging current is claimed to be 600mA, and in practice I notice no difference in charging speed between this and a regular Lightning cable from a standard USB charger.
Of course your chosen charging pad will play an important role in charging speed.

Should you find yourself away from a charging pad and wish to charge without removing the case, you will need a micro-usb lead, not a standard iPhone 5 Lightning lead, but I'm afraid that my PC doesn't recognize the phone using the Micro-USB, and so is only useful for charging, not syncing with iTunes or downloading photos to a computer.

The aperture for the camera lens and LED flash is uniform and not teardrop shaped, but the white plastic wall of the aperture causes the light from the LED to relect into the lens resulting in a fogging effect when taking photographs using flash, or shooting video with the light on. I also have this case in Black, where no such effect is noticeable.

Overall, as a charging case it works well, but if you take a lot of pics, stick with a black one.
In white I can only award an 'it's OK' 3 stars because it impairs the functionality of the phone when using the camera with flash.
