Currently there are a few different wireless charging standards, but it appears as if Qi has started to go mainstream over its competition. We’re seeing more and more companies adding Qi to their smartphones as well as other companies creating Qi Wireless accessories. Not to mention, Ikea has some furniture with Qi inside. Let’s take a look at some of the best Qi Wireless chargers for the month of September.
GMYLE Mini Qi Charging Pad
GMYLE has a few different designs for the Qi Wireless charging pad here. This one is just a generic looking Qi Wireless pad, but it does its purpose and does it well. Which is to wirelessly charge your smartphone. It’ll work with many of the smartphones out there including the Galaxy Note 5, Droid Turbo and others that feature Qi.
EC Technology Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad
EC Technology’s Qi pad here is pretty slim. The company touts it as being just 6mm thin, but it still packs enough juice to charge up your smartphone wirelessly, which is the reason we are looking to buy it. It’s a round black charger here, and it doesn’t make glass-backed smartphones like the Galaxy S6 Edge+ slide off.
Raynic Orchid II Qi wireless charger
This Qi charger here is a bit different, and also interesting. It’s partially clear, and when your phone is on the charger, the entire thing lights up. It looks really nice and will add a bit of flair to your desk or even your side-table in the living room. Otherwise, it works the same as these others, in providing juice to your smartphone wirelessly.
Samsung Wireless Charging Pad
Now that Samsung is making Qi charging standard in their smartphones, largely because you can’t replace the back any more. It’s time to look at their Wireless Charging pad. Now this one is a bit thicker than the others, but provides about the same amount of power. It is compatible with the faster Qi charging on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ however.
WoodPuck: Bamboo Edition Qi Wireless Charging Pad
We got hands on with these WoodPucks at IFA last week in Berlin. It’s a Qi Wireless Charger but made of Bamboo. So it looks extra stylish, and something we can all appreciate. These are from Fonesalesman, and are available in a few different designs as well.
RAVPower Mini Wireless Charging Pad
Small Qi Wireless chargers seem to be a popular thing these days. Seeing as we all want to use Qi but don’t want the charger taking up a huge spot on our desk or table. RAVPower has a mini wireless charger here, that’s really good at doing just that.
GMYLE Mini Qi Charging Pad
This charging pad from GMYLE is in wood, and boy does it look good! It would go great with a wood table at anyone’s house, I think. GMYLE has a nice LED on the front so you can see when the device is charging. of course the port for plugging in the wireless charger still sits in the back.
Qi Wireless Charging Pad Made of Solid Wood by Wasserstein
Here’s another wood offering, this time from Wasserstein. This Qi charger is made of solid wood, and has a rubber ring on the top. This is here to keep your phone or tablet from sliding off of the charger, which actually happens quite often with these Qi chargers.
TYLT VU 3 Coil Qi Wireless Charger
This is one of my favorite wireless chargers, actually. This is the TYLT VU, and I love it because it sits at an angle. That’s great for keeping your device from sliding off, but you can also sit your phone or tablet on the VU and watch a video while it’s charging. And since it’s at an angle, it’s a much more comfortable position.
Incipio Ghost 220 Qi Wireless Charging Base
This Qi charger from Incipio is another one of my favorites. Mostly because it can handle two smartphones or tablets at the same time. The Ghost 220 isn’t cheap though. But if you have many smartphones that use Qi and need to be charged, this is a great accessory to pick up.
