Charge Your Smartphone or Tablet Wirelessly With Choe Qi Wireless Charger

April 1, 2015

I last updated my smartphone a full three years ago. My HTC Evo 4G LTE has served me very well in that time. Since that update, screens and memory have gotten bigger and processors have added speed. So I’ve pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S6 and I’m excited for its arrival in ten days.

One of the features touted in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and other newer models is the ability to charge the phone wirelessly. Is it a big deal to not have to plug in your phone or tablet? Probably not. Though I have to admit the idea of simply setting down the phone and having it charge is very intriguing to me.

I’ve included a photo of a phone sitting on top of the Choe Qi Wireless Charging Pad. Yes, you’ll see a wire in the photo. It is connected to the charging pad as the pad does have to get electricity from somewhere.

There are other charging pads available, though this one seemed the most elegant to me. It is available in four different colors and strangely enough there is a slight price difference depending on the color chosen. All of them are currently selling on Amazon between $21-24. All in all, that’s not a bad price to pay for a little extra inconvenience.

Does it work with your device? The best suggestion I can give you to is look at the product page as compatible devices are listed. If your device is not directly compatible, you may be able to get a wireless receiver so that it would work with the pad. The “Qi” standard is gaining in popularity so I won’t be surprised to see the list of supported devices grow quite a bit in the next year. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to get one, but I think the geek in me will win out and I’ll soon have one under my new phone.
