Add a Qi wireless charging cover to your iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

One of my must-have features whenever I’m shopping for a new phone is Qi wireless charging. This feature is becoming more common on Android smartphones, but Apple hasn’t added it to their iPhones yet, even the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus do not have this handy feature. We’ve seen 3rd party covers for iPhones that add Qi charging capability, but they tend to be bulky and unattractive. These new covers from Brando add Qi charging but don’t detract from the iPhone’s slim format. The covers are available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and come in either black or gold versions. The covers snap on the back of the phone and feature a short cable that attaches to the Lightning port on the bottom edge of the phone. You’ll need a Qi charging dock / pad in order to actually charge the phone, so check our related posts links below for some ideas on that. These new Qi wireless charging covers are priced at $22 for the iPhone 6 version and $24 for the iPhone 6 Plus version.

    Cool design. Would need a classy looking charging dock to complete the package.

    The lightning area looks a tad flimsy and dangerous though?

    So far my experience has been “this has tried to burn up my $850 phone.” Absolutely terrible. After 45 minutes it’s way too hot to hold the freaking phone. No way can I approve Qi charging for iDevices in its current state

    Had this for about 2 months before the tiny ribbon cable that connects to the phone cracked and stopped charging. Loved it up until that moment. The only time it would get excessively hot was when I tried charging inside the closed center console of my car. Charging speed was acceptable, convenience factor was awesome.
