The TYLT VÜ Wireless Charger that Dave reviewed earlier this year is still my favorite Qi charger. I ended up buying one after reading his review and have been happily using it with my LG G3 on my night stand next to my bed every night. I'm happy to report that TYLT has just announced [...]

I have a fascination with activity trackers. I'm definitely not an athlete, but I still enjoy tracking my steps and other fitness information as a way to monitor how active I am or usually how active I'm not. I've reviewed so many trackers that I've lost count and it seems that there's an announcement for [...]

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 [...]

Ever since I bought a Qi wireless charger for my Samsung Galaxy S3, I've become a Qi snob. I even hacked my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to add that capability to it. Now if a smartphone doesn't have the ability to charge wirelessly, I'm not interested in using it as my primary device. Qi charging is so [...]

While sitting in Starbucks over the weekend, I noticed the gorgeous white phone and case belonging to the lady sitting at the next table.  It was so beautiful that I wanted to ask her what phone she had.  The case and phone were incredibly thin, and the cover had a window that showed the top [...]

I recently upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to a LG G3 smartphone. Having reviewing the LG G2 last year, I was expecting the G3 to have Qi charging capability right out of the box. I was really disappointed when I found out that this would not be the case with the US versions [...]

I am definitely a fan of wireless charging and worthy Kickstarter projects. In this case, the folks at Lutman Design have created the Swich, a very unique and innovative Qi charging stand that is currently seeking backing in its Kickstarter campaign that ends later this month. The Swich is constructed of a ceramic base and mount platform with [...]

Last week I posted an article about two of my Cummins Inc. co-workers who had integrated a Nexus 7 tablet into the dash of their vehicles. Since posting that article, I've become a little obsessed with figuring out a solution for my MINI Cooper that doesn't involve replacing the stock radio or any other extreme mods [...]

If you are a frequent visitor of The Gadgeteer, you'll already know that I'm slightly obsessed with Qi wireless charging gadgets. I started using Qi a year ago with my Samsung Galaxy S3. I ended up testing a couple different docks and Qi patches until I ended up buying the Samsung OEM charging cover. Since [...]

Some people will scoff, but I love wireless charging. Not having to plug a micro USB cable into my phone every time I need to top off the battery is a hassle, when wireless charging is an alternative. Once you've experienced the luxury of simply placing your device on a flat charging pad or a [...]

I hate cable-clutter, and oh how I do love wireless charging. It is a shame Apple has not led the way in this technology, and it is one of the many reasons I have recently switched from the iPhone 5 to the Galaxy Note 3 w/Qi-enabled back cover. I have tried the Nokia 901 Fatboy [...]

I have had the opportunity to try many of the variety of Qi charging stands currently available - from the no-name flat plastic slab to the Brando stand to the Nokia 901 Fatboy pillow. While all get the job done and are nice enough, they are not very polished. The engineers at TYLT have taken [...]

I believe wireless is the future of charging our power hungry smart-devices. For those of us who already embrace this near hassle-free way of juicing up our devices, our choices of charger design is a bit limited. A majority of the chargers currently available are flat slabs of plastic that you lay your Qi-enabled device on. [...]

I recently switched over to a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 so that I could work on a review of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch (review coming soon). In the past when I had tried to use phablets like the Note 2 and 3 as my primary device, I quickly gave up due to their size. [...]

I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to see how the other side lived. I was a bit bored and tired of my iPhone 5, and after reading Julie's review of the Note 3, I decided I wanted more screen real estate and to give Android a try. One of the features the iOS [...]
