I don't have any issues with neither warmth nor device not charging up to a full 100% ....

I'm guessing that's the difference between buying the cheaper ones off of eBay or AliExpress compared to ones where they have used more reliable components maybe ?
Do you have an iPhone too? the seller said Android phones should work fine, sadly I don't own an Android phone with wireless charging to test it.

The light difference could be a revision in hardware components, actually the orange light looks better for BMW cars because that is the default interior color light, so I want to think they only changed that, but maybe they messed up with something and now they released a faulty charger.

I have an iPhone yes, but the charger is based on standard QI charging however it supports fast charging - so if your android is fast charge capable it works with fast charging too regardless of brand .. just needs to be QI supported ...

Hi I posted a link to this one earlier on in the thread as I like the look of it.

May I ask what phone you have? I have an iPhone 11 Prox Max, and want to ensure the phone would fit on the charger before outlaying 100.

Also can you still use the cup holders fine?
