The LAX charger is made of solid aluminum and sports a rotating base with an anti-slip bottom. It has a smart folding design which means you can use it at just about angle, including completely flat, which also makes it easy to travel with. The Qi charging supports Fast Charge mode.

Pros

  • Solid aluminum design
  • Rotating base with anti-slip bottom
  • Folding design
  • Qi charging with Fast Charge mode
  • Black or silver

Cons

  • Best for landscape use

Final Verdict

The LAX Qi Wireless Charging Pad Stand looks nice, and is sold in black or silver. There is a notch for use in portrait mode, but it works best for landscape use. Imagine binge-watching movies on your beautiful iPhone X without ever plugging it in!
