Today, Amazon is offering the PowerBot PB1020 Qi Wireless Charging pad for just $21.99 and also offering free shipping (With Amazon Prime). It's available in a slew of colors as well including black, black on white, blue on black, yellow on black, red on black, white on black, and white. This wireless charger is compatible with just about every device that has wireless charging. That includes the Nexus 4, 5, and 7 (2013) as well as the HTC Droid DNA and some Samsung devices, if you've picked up the new back cover that brings in wireless charging. As far as power goes, we're looking at a 500-2100mA with USB port with micro USB cable. You can even plug it into a TV. The Input is going to be 5V / 500mAh to 1500mAh. Output is 5V, 1A max. It is 2.5 inches in diameter as well. It also has an LED display charging status and is designed with an energy efficient idle mode.
Typically, wireless chargers like this normally over $100, so it's great to see one for around $20. And that makes it nicer to pick up, and also makes it a bit easier for adoption. At around $50-70 per charger, it's hard for a lot of people to adopt qi wireless charging. But at just $22, it seems like it'll definitely help adopt qi wireless charging. I'm sure many of us have a qi enabled device that can use wireless charging. Even if you don't, it sure seems like the future, and I love wireless charging. I have one on my desk that I just place my Nexus 7 down on the charger and charge quickly. Normally, you'd need to go ahead and use a microUSB cable to charge your device. Wireless charging is much nicer, in my opinion.
So how many of you are going to pick one of these up from Amazon? Let us know in the comments below.
