Has anyone used one of the magnetic charging plug ins for their iPhone? The older I get the harder it is to find that little charging hole...

I've seen/heard of these before, but never used one. Here's a link and review of one that looks good. What Bob suggested (wireless charger) works for charging, of course, but not for syncing/data transfer (unless you use wi-fi syncing, which is slower)...also won't work away from your desk, unless you want to take a wireless charging pad everywhere with you...it's great for home/office, though.

I'd go with Bob's idea of the wireless charger if you have anything past iPhone 8. I use an Anker tabletop charger and it's been working really well for the past couple of years.

Ever since I got my Apple Watch I've wanted a Qi charger for my iPhone. Of course this is now possible with my new iPhone SE2. I have seen a few that can charge both the watch and the iPhone but I'm still searching for one I like.

Thread moved to better area (iPhone hardware)...not an iOS and Apps topic.

Thanks,

I have the Anker (mentioned before) charger for my iPhone and a basic rubber holder for the Apple watch charge that came with it. For my daughter's phone and watch, I went with this stand that charges both devices and its been working well.
