Operation is very simple although the phone needs to be almost perfectly centered on top of it. Once attached it doesn't slip off very easily even without a case on but it is possible to knock it out of its ideal charging position. Charging is about the same speed (maybe a little faster) as compared to the standard AC adapter included with the iPhone 8.
All in a nice product, simple to use, and a great way to charge your phone without having to plug anything in.
The charging pad is a round disc shape. There is a rubber-like ring on the top surface so the phone does not easily slide off. The ring also helps to identify the charging coil's location so the phone can be placed for the best charging efficiency. The bottom also has a similar rubber-like texture so the charging pad itself does not move around on the table. There is an LED that lights up green when the phone is recognized and being charged.
The power supply is a 15V 1.5A custom wall wart. It does not look like it can take an aftermarket or universal charger as the power supply like some other Qi charging pads do. Not sure why the power supply is rated with so much power - that's 22.5W of power for a charger that delivers 7.5W to the phone. Hopefully it is designed this way so the power supply has plenty of headroom for better reliability, and not because of low charging efficiency (Update: comments below indicates that this large power supply is needed in order to support the 7.5W charging power, since wireless charging has lower efficiency than wired charging).
UPDATE Oct-10-2017: Charging an iPhone 8 from empty battery to full took roughly 2.5 hours. This is about the same speed as charging using the 5V 1A wired AC adapter that comes with the iPhone. I read that Apple has not enabled 7.5W wireless charging yet on the iPhone 8. An iOS update is expected to enable the faster wireless charging mode. Charging an old Google Nexus 6 phone from empty to full took roughly 4 hours. Again this is consistent with charging the phone with a 5W adapter.
Anyway, yes, this charger actually works and works very well. Amazing. But more than that, it's a nicely thought-out and designed charger.. For one, there is a rubber ring that holds my iPhone 8 in place far better than I would have thought and you can tilt it at quite an angle (though there's no reason why you would, lol) before it starts to slip. There's also a non-slip rubber pad on the base to keep the charger from sliding around, but I keep it plugged in on a deep counter so it's unlikely to go anywhere anyway. The phone is kind of cool looking laying on the counter, but truth be told I'm a little afraid a cat will sit on it one of these days (which I'm not sure would be harmful to either of them, but who knows).
Also, a tiny (and I mean tiny) green light on the surface lets you know when you have a good charge going. The phone has to be centered to get it charging, but it's got a bit of play in the placement. Also, this charges at 7.5W which I have read is about three times faster than other chargers. Belkin says the charger will work with cases up to around 3MM thick and to be honest I don't know who thick the case is that I'm using (a gift), but it is working. I'm not thrilled with the big adapter plug that goes into the wall (or strip) but I know it's a necessity. It's amazing though how I have to fight for plug space on the rat's nest of outlets and bricks on my office floor. OK, so I guess that means wireless isn't quite wireless, but we're getting there.
Using the charger is simple, just drop the phone on and you're charging--one less cord to find and one less tiny thing for me to plug in. I think considering the convenience and the relatively modest price, this is an accessory worth owning.
The charger took my iPhone 8 Plus from 13% to 50% in one hour, and to 100% in about 2-1/2 hours.
I found that this charger worked fine on my iPhone 8 Plus through my case, the Speck Presidio Clear Case. You do need to place your phone (face up) in exactly the right spot on the charger to be sure it’s charging, but the green light lets you know when you’ve hit that sweet spot. Just be sure to leave it in a place where it won’t be jostled.
About the only significant drawback to this charger is the size of the AC adapter plug. Chances are that in addition to its own receptacle it will block another one.
