    Ohhh I like, but I want to hear if it works with the Teric. I would hope it would because their standalone one works with the Teric.

    Anker wireless chargers don't seem to work with the Teric.

    So our Terics were recently serviced by Shearwater, the service rep said the batteries were Samsung Note 7 levels of bad. He highly recommended against using flat chargers with the Terics, while they are "supported" some provide too much juice for the Terics and wreak havoc on the battery apparently. Supposedly Shearwater is going to release a list of approved/recommened flat chargers.

    So the flat Choetech charger recommended by Shearwater is in fact not ok? The larger "two-bay" Chietech linked a fer posts above does NOT work, unfortunately.

    If they recommend it then I’d assume it’s okay. The tech I talked to said some don’t over charge the battery but many do. So if it’s one they explicitly recommend I’d assume they know it’s one that is safer for the Teric.

    Modern chargers aren't like the battery chargers of old, they are simply a device to convert wall power to something that the device's charging circuit to handle. The device's charging circuit then takes that and charges the battery. So if something is overcharging the battery it isn't the charger but the device itself.

    I believe you for wired chargers. Is it still true for the fast-charge hi-power wireless chargers?

    Same idea, as a wired charger, but you have a conversion process before it is fed into the charging circuit.

    Here is a new player in the wireless pad space... does anyone know the wattage that the Teric needs for charging. It looks like it can charge the Apple iPhone flat or upright — maybe? I’ll see if Teric Support will/can comment on this particular pad.

    Anyone have any updates on dual chargers? Looking for something that does both the phone and the teric at the same time.

    Thanks!
