I bought one of these of the other half's phone, which uses USB 3.0 cable. It turns out that in order to use QI charging on her phone, USB 3.0 connections are required on both ends!
So I purchased one of these....  in 30-40 minutes it can charge to 80%+ then ramps down the rest. Good solid buy..

Thanks, Parkdale.   I hadnít realised that Qi chargers might need an additional power brick.

Apple actually push a few 3rd party Qi chargers themselves, including one from Morphie at £35, that I think includes its own (non USB) power brick.     Canít help thinking that, unusually for Apple, allowing them a reasonable premium as retailer, that might actually be a reasonable price?

Mission accomplished.  :)

I noticed they were 'available' again in the afternoon, this time didn't dither. As long as I make it home on the train without being mugged, I'll be the proud owner of an '11 Pro.

 Chunker's point about 3 year cycles was a good one that did get me worried.  But I also reasoned, if there is some wondrous new format launched next year,  chances are there will be a wondrous price hike too.  And the price tag of 11 Pro is already stretching credibility imho.
