Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger FAQ
WHAT IS WIRELESS CHARGING?
Also known as inductive charging, it’s another way to charge your smartphone, accessory, or other compatible device. Simply place it on a wireless charging device – it eliminates the need for charging cables.
IS WIRELESS CHARGING SAFE?
It doesn’t present any particular risk. Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger has been tested by an independent laboratory and has been CE, FCC, and Qi certified.
IS WIRELESS CHARGING FASTER THAN CHARGING VIA A CABLE?
Wired charging is, and will likely always remain, faster than wireless charging.
WHEN I’M USING DROP CLASSIC LEATHER WIRELESS CHARGER, HOW CAN I TELL IF MY DEVICE IS CHARGING?
Your device should have an indicator or notification to let you know it's charging. If a notification doesn't pop up, check the battery symbol at the top of the screen to see if it indicates that it's charging. In addition, Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger has an LED light on the front that will be on while the device is charging.
WILL IT CHARGE MY PHONE WHILE IT’S IN A CASE?
That depends on the design of the case, but Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger is fully compatible with all of our cases. If your non-Native Union case is simply a protective case, as long as its back panel is no thicker than 3mm, wireless charging should work fine. However, if the back panel is thicker, or if the case contains a battery or other metal (including credit cards), it may prevent the phone from charging wirelessly.
DOES IT INCLUDE A POWER SOURCE?
No, it includes a 6.5-foot stainless steel USB-A to USB-C Cable. You’ll need to plug the charger into a USB-A power source. We highly recommend our Smart Charger PD 18W, or Smart Hub PD 45W for high-speed charging in a complementary style.
DOES IT SUPPORT DATA TRANSFER?
No, wireless charging in general doesn’t support data transfer.
HOW FAST WILL IT CHARGE MY PHONE?
For the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR, iPhone SE (2020), iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, it’ll charge your phone at 7.5 Watts (equivalent to 1.5 Amps). For all non-Apple Qi compatible devices, it’ll charge your device at 10 Watts (equivalent to 2 Amps). Wireless charging is highly impacted by the heat of the charger and temperature of the room.
IS IT MFI CERTIFIED?
Wireless charging doesn’t fall into the category of products that are subject to MFi certification. Therefore, Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger is not MFi certified, but you can rest assured it’ll work with your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR, iPhone SE (2020), iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.
CAN I CHARGE MY APPLE WATCH WITH IT?
WILL IT CHARGE MY AIRPODS OR AIRPODS PRO?
Yes, it will charge your AirPods (with Wireless Charging case) and AirPods Pro at 5W. A full charge takes between 3-5 hours.
THE LED KEEPS BLINKING WHILE CHARGING MY AIRPODS (PRO). SHOULD I BE CONCERNED?
The white status LED may blink or switch off repeatedly while charging, but this does not affect the charging progress. On AirPods Pro, you can check charging status by tapping on the case. If the LED blinks orange, charging is still in progress. If the LED blinks green, charging is complete.
MY SMARTPHONE FEELS A LITTLE WARM AFTER TOUCHING. SHOULD I BE CONCERNED?
Not at all. It’s normal for your phone to get slightly warm when charging wirelessly. Drop Classic Leather Wireless Charger has passed strict safety tests. When using a regular plug-in charger, you’ll notice that the charger warms up a little – it’s the same with wireless charging.
