Qi Wireless Phone Charger


Charging your phone is one of those essential daily tasks that we can’t escape in the modern world. But it’s not always practical having your phone connected to its charging cable, especially if you need to be picking up your phone while it’s charging. Charging cables can be a nuisance at the best of times.

That’s where a clever bit of wireless technology, and this nifty charging gadget come in handy. Simply place your Qi compatible phone on the wireless charging pad, it’ll charge up your phone in no time and you’re also able to pick it up and put it back down whenever you like. As soon as your phone makes contact it begins charging again. It has a 10w output so charging is fast. Plus there’s no need to navigate charging cables while taking a call or using your phone, which can sometimes prove akward. Each wireless charger is supplied with it’s own micro USB cable.

You’re also able to charge your phone through most smartphone covers and cases – which is a pretty essential function. Provided it’s not too thick (ie less than 8mm), and there’s no metal in the case, it will charge as normal.

Qi charging is compatible with: iPhone 8, 8+, X and Samsung galaxy S7 edge, S8, S8+ phones.
