For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Choetech to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 5W or 7.5W Qi-based wireless charger that's compatible with the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and future iPhones with wireless charging support.

Choetech is a company that offers a range of affordable iPhone and iPad accessories on Amazon, including several wireless chargers. Today's giveaway comes just ahead of Mother's Day, and Choetech is offering MacRumors readers a selection of chargers perfect for moms and everyone else.

The company's newest charger is a little bit unique because it features a sweet little panda design on the front. Available in black, Choetech's Panda charger, priced at $19.99, has a silicone panda embossed into the front, which is designed to hold your iPhone in place while it's charging.

Choetech has designed the Panda charger with 7.5W support, so it is able to charge the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus faster than standard 5W chargers. 7.5W is the fast charging option available on iPhones that support wireless charging. For Android devices, 10W quick charging is also available. You do need to pair it with a proper adapter to get quick charging, though.

Choetech says that the charger also includes additional features to prevent overcharging and to keep the iPhone cooler while you're charging.

I tested Choetech's Panda charger ahead of the giveaway, and I can confirm that I saw charging speeds that were a bit quicker than 5W charging speeds, so if you're looking for a charger that's affordable, fast, and a bit out of the ordinary, the Panda charger is worth checking out.

For those who aren't fans of pandas, Choetech also offers a few other Qi-based charging options, but these do not support the faster 7.5W charging specification. Wireless charging speeds are based on a wide range of factors, though, and there's not always much of a difference between 5W and 7.5W charging. Wireless charging is also often used in situations where fast charging is not required, such as overnight, making 5W chargers an adequate choice.

Choetech's 5W Wireless Charger Pad with Anti-Slip Rubber, priced at $12.99, is available in pink, blue, and black. It's a standard square-shaped Qi charger that's affordable, sized right, and that works well thanks to the rubber design in the center that holds the iPhone in place.

Chotech's Aluminum Alloy Wireless Charging Pad, priced at $12.99, is a circular wireless charger that has a built-in smart lighting sensor. The sensor turns off when the room gets dark so it can be used on a night stand, and it is compact in size, approximately the size of a coffee cup coaster. This is an attractive charger that's made from aluminum, and the lights add a touch of style.
