The best (and the most original) Wireless Chargers of 2017
Here’s a selection of the best wireless chargers on the market. Our choice was based on originality because you don’t want to own another boring accessory!
Tylt – VÜ Wireless Charger ($29.99)ProsA phone stands with minimalistic design, with four colours to choose from and equipped with the three-coil system. It can hold the phone at 45° so you can easily see calls, texts and videos.ConsNot sure about the strength of materials used. It fits smartphones only and is not necessarily designed for other QI-compatible devices.
Woolet – Wireless Charging Mousepad ($120)
Pros Made out of high-quality natural leather; a combination of QI standard wireless charger and a very classy mousepad. Equipped with three inductive coils for the fastest charging speed. Charged phone (or other device) is always within reach. The charger as a whole is designed beautifully and can be considered not only a tech item but also a fashion accessory. Cons Price. Then again, it’s natural leather, so …
IKEA – RIGGAD ($89.99)
Pros The most popular Swedish shop introduced the wireless charging line of items. Our favourite was an LED work lamp with wireless charging. The clear, minimalist design with wooden base will look terrific on any desk or night stand. You can charge two devices at the same time, as there is also a USB port built into the lamp. Cons Price. Only one inductive coil, which makes charging slower.
FoneSalesman – QiStone ($79.99)
Pros Nice rock-like design. Wireless charger and power bank in one device. Possibility to charge two devices at the same time using USB cable. Cons One inductive coil only means slower charging. It’s a power bank too, so you need to make sure it’s charged at all times. Only one colour option.
Montar – Air QI Car Mount ($79.99)
Pros Power up your phone while commuting. The QI-compatible charger can be mounted in the car, either on the dashboard or the windscreen. It rotates through 360 degrees and has rubber protection. Additional car charger is included in the set. Cons Designed for smartphones only. One inductive coil. Comes in one colour only. Also, it would look silly used elsewhere than in the car.
Nokia – Wireless Charging Plate ($39.99)
Pros The simplest wireless charger you can find: small, light and energy efficient. Available in five colours (including neon). The winner of few product rankings. Cons It’s a charger. That’s all. No additional functions.
