IMO, this is a pretty decent price for a standing wireless charger, that too from Anker.
Standing wireless chargers tend to be more on the expensive side vs. the lie-flat ones for some reason.
I tend to use the standing ones on my work desk or in the living room or kitchen. The bedroom has a lie-flat combo charger so it stays out of my way when we’re winding down at the end of the day.

Anker is considered a leading brand for mobile power accessories. If you’re not aware of Anker’s reputation, suggest you search through the forum/google to form your opinion.

According to Keepa, the price hasn’t been this low in at least a year.

Customer Reviews:
Regardless of using Anker’s very own 31.5W Dual USB Wall Charger PowerPort 2 with Quick Charge 3.0 – or the stock Samsung Galaxy S8 Adaptive charger, the results were essentially the same. | I was using the centre most port on the Anker charging block (in two separate “wired” tests, I found the charging port furthest from the centre to charge “wired” 12% slower, so I used the faster port to compare with the Samsung charger). All tests were timed, and started when the phone was at 25% charged. The screen was off, and the phone was rebooted prior to charging, to ensure equal running processes. | Scenario 1: Anker wireless base with included cable, and stock Samsung Adaptive charger = charged at 984 mA average. | Scenario 2: Anker wireless base with included cable, and Anker’s 31.5W Dual USB Wall Charger PowerPort 2 with Quick Charge 3.0 (using the slightly faster centre port) = charged at 982 mA average. | The Anker charger yielded no advantage over the stock Samsung Adaptive charger, but confirmed the charging speed of the wireless pad. | By comparison, using Anker’s PowerLine+ USB C to USB 3.0 cable (6ft), High Durability cable with the aforementioned chargers, the resulting “wired” charge rates are as follows: | With Anker charger: 1918 mA average | With Samsung charger: 2164 mA average | The Anker wireless charging pad is a bit less than half as fast as either “wired” solution. Imho that’s not a terrible thing. Fast charging is proven to reduce the lifespan of rechargeable batteries. Plus, there’s the sheer convenience – and no more broken cables to replace! | Footnote: the wireless base may yield faster charge rates by using a better cable than the one Anker provides. I’m skeptical about that, as I believe it is a limitation of the micro USB 2.0 port on the wireless base. Meh, next time… LOL! | Stay awesome!
