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 […]
I have just recently upgraded my phone to one that supports wireless charging and was excited to try it for the first time. I was going to purchase a five watt wireless charger until I came across a press release from Freescale Semiconductor about their 15 watt wireless charging solution. Their design will support faster,
The QiStone+ charger is described as the only truly wireless power bank. The charger has a 4000mAh battery that can keep your phone or other Qi-chargeable device powered up during your day.

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 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.
iPad stands are a dime a dozen right? Not the iPort line of iPad stands. They combine a special all-in-one charging case with a magnetic stand to offer convenient wireless charging.
