I have been obsessed with wireless charging ever since I got my Galaxy S6 Edge+ phone.  Cutting myself loose from charging cables is a wonderfully freeing experience, and I honestly think that wireless charging is going to be the future and all sorts of surfaces around the house, restaurants, and the office will be wireless [...]

Ever since purchasing my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ I have enjoyed the benefit of rapid charging.  I can charge my phone for 30 min using the rapid charger that came with the phone and get 50% in battery capacity.  The problem is that I have to use the charger that came with the phone to [...]

Whenever I proclaim my love for wireless charging, there are people who make fun of me asking if I am too weak or lazy to plug in a USB cable like the rest of the world. I know that using a cable isn't difficult or a huge hardship, but once you start using wireless chargers [...]

Luxa - 4

There have been many wireless cases, which add the ability to phones or tablets built without a charging system, but the folks at Luxa2 removed the case, and thus, freed up the idea of wireless charging for everything.  I've been interested in wireless charging, just hearing the smack-talk from all the users of non-iPhones here [...]

I recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphone.  I did so for many reasons but one of the main reasons was the rapid charging and wireless charging abilities built into the phone.  I don’t have to buy an extra bulky case to go around the phone to give me the wireless charging ability, it’s [...]

I'm a latecomer to the world of wireless charging. I've been doing just fine plugging in my phone when necessary; however, it has always been in the back of my mind to give wireless charging a try. So when the Choetech 3-Coils Wireless Iron Stand Charger was available to review, I was eager to check [...]

Have I said how much I despise cables? They're everywhere! So any type of device that reduces the number of wires in my life is something that draws my attention, like the Vinsic Qi Wireless Charger & 10400mAh External Battery Power Bank. This is a Qi wireless charger that is also a 10400 mAh battery so [...]

Last month I published a news post making fun of a special wireless charging receiver for PMA style wireless chargers. I didn't see the point of such a device which seemed to offer no benefits over a regular USB cable because the adapter was so bulky and clunky. Then today Brando sent me news about a similar [...]

I love the ease and convenience of wireless charging. I have Qi charging pads and stands strategically placed throughout my world. They all get the job done but none are really all that noteworthy or eye catching. All are made of some sort of plastic varying in size, shape, and quality. Until recently that is. [...]

Last August Kathleen reviewed the TaoTronics Elune Dimmable LED Desk Lamp, a small task lamp that used LEDs instead of traditional light bulbs. LEDs are very energy efficient, last longer than regular light bulbs and don't generate a lot of heat. Fast forward to now and we have the aerelight which features OLEDs instead of regular LEDs. What are [...]

Have you jumped on the Qi wireless charging band wagon yet? If you haven't, what the heck are you waiting for? Once you go wireless, you'll never want to plug in another micro USB cable into your phone again. Trust me. If you're lucky enough to have a smartphone that is Qi capable, the ORICO [...]

Now that Samsung, one of the world's most popular smartphone makers other than Apple, has decided to include Qi wireless charging capability in their new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones, I think this means we're finally going to see Qi charging take off in a big way. I was an early adopter of wireless [...]
