I am considering the Taptes Model 3 wireless charger, $49.9 if pre order now, don't plan to pay $99 or $129, also don't like the battery locked inside design, feels dangerous…

Looks exactly like it! Wonder what the story is here

Maybe the Chinese manufacturer made a deal with someone else too and sold the plans :rolleyes:

Don't think I'll bite on this outfit. Sounds too good to be true and probably is. Read their site, they cannot even express themselves in English in their advertising. Be careful, feels scammish.

Maybe you should see what the Tesla S and X owners say about the wireless option from Taptes before you invest your money. I found this in the specs: "

  • After testing the Model X 90D, it takes just eight minutes to fully charge your phone when it has only 1% power left.

As you can imagine, no charger, wireless or not, can meet this number. Color me skeptical.

Good point, Unplugged, I guess they mean get 1% more charging in 8 minutes?? Obviously nobody will believe get 99% in 8 minutes. They are in Hong Kong, not native speaker, but their English really needs to be improved, hope products better than their English.

Hi there, I don't know if everyone is gonna appreciate it but since I discovered it yesterday (and bought one), here is the same thing for $50 instead of $150 (130 currently) from Nomad.

I don't have a Model 3 yet but when I receive it I'll be able to post pictures, measure it etc. to see if it will fit the same or not.
IMO, it comes from the same factory and it is the same internals, but I might be wrong and Nomad could totally justify the $80-$100 price difference.

I ordered the same one from Taptes a couple of weeks ago. Probably won't be here for another 3 weeks since it was only supposed to be available for shipping around 11/15. Then a long time to get here from Hong Kong. Anxious to see if it really is a Nomad clone.

Cannot wait to see your comments about the Taptes charger... really hope it is comparable with the nomad one.

I am also on the fence but considering it. Refuse to pay so much for the other brands. I have a bunch of cheap (<$25) wireless chargers at home and work and they are great. Most of the time I dock my phone up by the screen for Waze though.

Received an email from Taptes about my order last night. They can ship now, or offered to let me wait until November 30 for a generation 2 product that is more anti-slip. Same electronics, just a difference in the surface material. I opted to wait for generation 2, so won't have it until about mid-December. I'll certainly let everyone know what it's like when I get it.

Not sure if anyone has done this yet, so I went ahead and reported this product to Nomad. I hope they have their product protected since this is a blatant rip off.
