Colour: Rebel black or Titanium Grey
Elevator Pitch: The most powerful Qi charger you can get
County of manufacture: China
Fiora has been making telecommunications accessories for over 15 years. It appears to be Canadian based and has a 1-888 toll-free number.
Let’s do the Fiora 15W Qi desktop first
A small 80mm square and 8mm thick. It has four little rubber feet and a USB-C PD 3.0 charge port.
It intelligently outputs 15W (Samsung Galaxy), 10W (most Qi-enabled phones), 7.5W (Apple) or 5W (older devices or buds).
Mains power is from any USB-C PD 3.0 charger. It comes with a QC certified 5V/3A, 9V/2A and 12V/1.25A (18W) charger. The only problem is that it has a US plug (I did request AU). Never mind you can get a low-cost pin adapter.
We also tested it with our favourite Moshi ProGeo USB-C 65W charger as well – no issues. We could test the power draw via a Power-Z dongle, and it gave the pad exactly what it needed.
Output Test – EXCEED
We tested with a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (15W), and it showed as fast charge. The LG Velvet is 10W and shows fast charge. A pair of Galaxy Buds Live using 5W was also fine.
We also tested with thick cases to 5mm but don’t use metal cases – PASS
We did not have an iPhone handy, but Fiora provided this graph. It shows a very efficient charge algorithm.
Fiora Car 15W charger
Imagine the charge circuit in a windscreen (using suction cups) or dash mount (vent clip) and instead of a 240V QC 3.0 charger it has a 12V cigarette lighter QC 3.0 charger.
Not a lot more to say except that Fiora has included 1.5m USB-A to USB-C cable to suit most car setups.
