Good day folks! We’ve had the INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand for over a month now and today, we’re going to share with you our unboxing experience and initial impressions.
Before we do that, some of you might be asking “Do I need a wireless charger when I already have a wired one?” Wired chargers are more efficient and charge devices faster so why do you need a wireless charger? With wireless chargers, you don’t have to fiddle with or worry about plugging & unplugging power cables. You simply place your device on the charging pad or stand and when you need to use it or leave, you just pick it up and go. Another reason is that it reduces the wear and tear on your device, especially the micro USB or USB-C port.
If you have at least one smartphone in your household that supports wireless charging, then you should definitely consider about getting a wireless charger. By the way, wireless chargers typically come in two forms: stands and pads.
We’d like to thank INIU for making this review possible by sending us the 2-pack version of the INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand.

The INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand comes in simple yet well-built packaging.
The outer part of the box contains some of the product information and specifications while the inside contains the wireless charging stands, USB cables, and the welcome guide.
I was expecting some type of insulation inside the box to protect the devices but didn’t find any. It’s a good thing that the units I received were working properly and didn’t have any type of physical damage. I think that’s something that INIU needs to consider and improve on.
DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY
The INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand has a compact and sleek design. It has a slim profile and it doesn’t take up much space which makes it a nice accessory on any bedside, desktop, or workspace.
Although it is made almost entirely from plastic, the product doesn’t look nor feel cheap and flimsy. It is lightweight yet quite sturdy.
I like how the charging area is texturized. Not only does it make the stand look nicer but it also makes the surface less slippery. Another thing I like about it is that the part of the stand where the phone sits is rubberized which keeps it from slipping off easily. The bottom also has a couple of rubber strips that keep that stand from sliding around.
On the back of the charging stand, you will see heat vents that help prevent overheating while it is charging a device. Aside from that, the INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand also has an exclusive NTC Temp Guard Battery Protection feature that smartly and silently controls the temperature in real-time, protecting devices from damage and overheating.
The INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand features a dual coil design that provides a wider charging area and allows the user to charge the device either in landscape or portrait mode. This is a useful feature when you want to use the device to watch videos in landscape mode while the device is charging.
COMPATIBILITY & PERFORMANCE
The INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand is Qi-certified so it will work with any device that is compatible with the Qi standard. The product is easy to set up and it is plug-and-play so it works right out of the box.
To power the wireless charging stand, you can either plug it into the wall, a computer’s USB-A port, or a powerbank. If you read the package contents listed above or watched the unboxing video, you probably noticed that INIU doesn’t provide a block charger so you will have to use a spare from one of your old devices or purchase one.
The INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand provides a maximum output of 15W but that depends on the type of block charger you use. Make sure to use one that has at least 15W capacity in order to take advantage of this feature.
For testing purposes, I used my Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G and my wife’s iPhone 11. Both devices were recognized by the INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand and charged accordingly.
I haven’t encountered any issues with the INIU 15W Qi-Certified Wireless Fast Charging Stand in the past month or so. I’ve read some user reviews on Amazon where customers complained about a chirping sound, charging issues, or the unit stopped working after a few months. So far, I haven’t experienced any of that but I will update this post if I encounter any issues in the future.
By the way, INIU offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, a 3-year warranty, and lifetime technical support. In case you encounter any problems with your unit, make sure to contact INIU right away.
