REVIEW – I’m spoiled with the ability to wireless charge my favorite gadgets like my phone and even earbuds that have a battery case that charges wirelessly. All wireless charging pads are not equal as some chargers don’t have enough power for fast charging. That’s not true for the Logitech POWERED Pad Wireless Charger that I’m going to tell you about today.
What is it?
The Logitech POWERED Pad Wireless Charger is a Qi wireless charger that has 10 watts of power for up to 2 times faster charging.
What’s in the box?
- Logitech POWERED Pad wireless charger
- Proprietary AC adapter
Design and features
The Logitech POWERED Pad wireless charger is not flashy and I like it that way. It’s available in plain white like the one that was sent to me, as well as black, blue sage, and lilac. It’s a 3.35 x 3.35 x 0.51 inch square plastic slab with rounded corners and the Logitech logo stamped in the center.
The front edge has a small status LED that glows white when it’s charging a device and is off when it’s not. On the opposite side is the power port. Note that this wireless charger doesn’t use a micro or USB-C cable. It comes with its own proprietary AC power adapter with a 5ft cable.
I tested the Logitech POWERED Pad with an iPhone X and Huawei P30 Pro, both with cases, and I had no issues charging either phone quickly and effortlessly. I currently do not have any earbuds that can charge wirelessly like the AirPods and AirPods Pro, but this charger can share them too or any other Qi-enabled device that you might have stowed in your gadget drawer.
The only thing I noticed is that like other wireless charging pads, you have to slide the device around a bit to learn where the sweet spot is for charging. But once you eyeball the right way to position it on the POWERED Pad, you’ll be good to go from then on.
What I like
- Minimalist design
- Fast charging
What I’d change
There’s really not a whole lot to say about the Logitech POWERED Pad wireless charger other than it charges your Qi-enabled devices without needing to plug in a physical cable. It can also charge them at 7.5 – 9W instead of only 5W which is used by many chargers. That means that it can offer fast wireless charging for phones from Apple and Samsung. If you’re in the market for a nice looking compact wireless charger that’s available in some unique colors, check out the Logitech POWERED Pad.
