Android Holiday Gift Ideas Day #16: RAVPower Wireless Charging Pad

December 17, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

For those with a wireless charging enabled phone or tablet like the Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 5, Nexus 4, HTC DROID DNA and the Lumia 920, this charging pad is a great gift idea this holiday season. I know a lot of people think “wireless charging? But it still has to be plugged in”. Well that is true. But it’s much better to put your phone down on the pad and have it charging, then have to worry about plugging it in every night. Or maybe that’s just me. I actually have a couple or wireless chargers laying around the house, and I use them all the time for my Nexus 7 (2013).

This one works with any Qi-enabled device, or a device with a Qi-compatible cover, like the Galaxy S4 or Note 3. There’s also a LED light display charging indicator which shows you if your phone is charging and if it’s completely charged. As far as input goes it’s DC 5V, 1.5A and output is 5V, 1A max. The dimensions of this charging pad is 5.7-inches x 3.11-inches x 0.31-inches. It also weighs about 4.5 ounces. So it’s pretty light. It’s also pretty portable, but I’m not sure it’s more portable than having a regular microUSB charger, since those are so small and light.

RAVPower also has many other products like external batteries and more. This wireless charging pad is on sale now for $35. It’s normal price is $99.99. So that’s quite the discount. Additionally, it is available for Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping. So if you’re an Amazon Prime member you could get this delivered as early as Thursday. Or you could pay $3.99 to get it tomorrow! Not bad, right?
