Qi Wireless chargers have been around for a while. But now that Samsung has added Qi charging into their Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge – which are expected to ship about 50 million this year – more and more manufacturers are making Qi Wireless Charging pads. Incipio has a number of them available, and today we’re looking at the Ghost 110. Which is their cheapest charging pad. When it comes to Qi Wireless Charging pads, there’s not a whole lot of features that are needed. Basically you just need a surface to set your phone down on that will charge it. So here we have a square charging pad, with a light on the front, that lights up blue when it’s charging. If it’s red, that means that the device is not charging properly. Usually that means two things, either your device doesn’t support Qi, or your device needs to be moved around.
Unlike some of the other Wireless Chargers that Incipio has, the Ghost 110 does now have a USB port on the back. The Ghost 120 model does however. We’ve been using the Ghost 110 with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge for a few days now and it works pretty well. The only real issue we’ve had with it is the fact that the devices do like to slide off of the charger. However, that is not Incipio’s fault, that’s more Samsung’s fault. Having a glass back means it’s going to slide off of many surfaces. This happens quite often with the Sony Xperia Z3, which is my daily driver.
Qi Wireless charging is still quite slow, especially if you are used to Quick Charge from Samsung or Qualcomm, but it gets the job done, and is pretty neat. The Ghost 110 is available from Incipio for just $49.99. Yes it’s a bit more expensive than some of the others out there. But Incipio’s products are pretty high-end, and are also pretty durable. So what you’re paying for is what you get. And in this case, you’re getting a great Qi Wireless charger for your new smartphone.
