The Apple iPhone 12 Pro can be easily charged wirelessly using the magnetic based Apple MagSafe Charger charger but if you need faster charging performance or test two devices at the same time, the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger is another option.

Using the GRL-C2 USB PD Tester and GRL-PSP Power Analyzer software from Granite River Labs, we can see that the Apple iPhone 12 Pro (with display kept on) uses the most power under 10% battery, uses a reduced power level from 10% to 64% battery, and gradually reduces power after 64% battery, taking about 3.8 hours to charge the phone to 100%.  Note that the iPhone 12 Pro still continues to charge the phone for some time even after reporting 100% battery.  The iPhone 12 Pro maximum external temperature stays around 40 degrees C.

We see that below 10% battery, the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger draws a max 12W from its USB-C port over USB Power Delivery, meaning the iPhone 12 Pro is getting about 7-8W over Qi wireless testing.  From 10% to 64% battery, the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger draws about 8W over USB-C, with the iPhone 12 Pro receiving about 5-6W over Qi.

Compared to the Apple MagSafe Charger, the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger charges the iPhone 12 Pro a lot faster.  While the iPhone 12 Pro starts reducing power draw with both chargers at 64% to reduce temperature, the iPhone 12 Pro reaches 64% battery in about 2 hours using the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger vs about 4.2 hours using the MagSafe Charger.

The iPhone 12 Pro can also charge fully to 100% battery with the Verizon Dual Wireless Charging Pad with Fast Charger but gets stuck at 69% battery with the MagSafe Charger.
