The Phantom’s sloped base provides Qi wireless charging, allowing compatible phones to be recharged just by placing them on the base. If your phone doesn’t support Qi out of the box, it’s quite possible that you can get a wireless charging cover to add that capability. Failing that, the Phantom also includes a regular USB port that will also charge your phone, tablet or accessories.

The Phantom’s form is largely down to its function as a light. The Phantom uses modern LED lighting, which provides a bright and warm light that uses very little energy. The lamp features simple brightness controls, allowing you to adjust the intensity of the light to suit your situation. With a 300 lumen maximum brightness, you’ll always have more than enough light to see easily.

A conversation starter

Samsung have always been good at crafting accessories, but their latest effort is quite spectacular. The Korean company have unveiled their Qi Wireless Charging Car Holder, an all-in one solution for wireless-enabled Samsung smartphones.

Wireless charging for the win

Samsung are well known for releasing wireless charging covers for their upper-tier smartphones, allowing interested early adopters to make use of Qi-standard wireless charging while keeping their phone prices low. They’re producing the Wireless Charging Car Holder in order to satisfy these early adopters, letting them conveniently charge their smartphones on the go.

The advantage of wireless charging is that it’s so simple; just place your phone in the car holder and take it away again when you’re done, without the hassle of plugging and unplugging wires. Wireless charging is worthwhile enough on a desk or nightstand, but in the car it makes even more sense.

A sleek but secure car holder

Of course, charging is only one half of the solution. You’ll also need a steady platform to hold your phone while you’re driving, and the Samsung Wireless Charging Car Holder provides that as well. The car holder supports your phone with two arms on the sides, and two on the bottom. Whether in landscape or portrait mode, your phone will be held tightly and you’ll feel at ease.

This car charger also looks good. Wireless charging ensures that are no unsightly wires here, and the curved lines and svelte dimensions of the car holder add to this effect. This car charger is definitely one of the better looking options on the market.

Compatible with a wide range of Samsung smartphones

The Samsung Wireless Charging Car Holder is compatible with many recent Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S4 and S5; Galaxy Note 2, 3, 4 and Edge; and the Galaxy Alpha. Remember that you’ll need a wireless charging cover installed on your phone in order to use the wireless charging provided here.

This case adds Qi wireless charging to your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus

Qi Charging iPhone 6 Case - BlackQi Charging iPhone 6 Plus Case - Gold

Wireless charging is pretty cool and convenient, but so far Apple haven’t brought the technology to their iPhones – so accessory manufacturers have stepped in to fill the gap. Last month we showed you a standalone Qi wireless charging receiver that you could add to your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus; today we’re showing another option for those of you that want to add Qi wireless charging to your new iPhones. The new option is the Qi Charging Case, which combines a Qi charging coil with a protective iPhone case, a single piece solution. Let’s take a closer look.

The Qi Charging Case is a simple plastic case which adds good scratch protection and a bit of impact protection as well. Of course, the real magic is inside – there’s a Qi charging coil that will work with a wide range of Qi charging pads. This is joined up with a Lightning connector that can be plugged or unplugged without taking the case off. That’s quite useful if you need to charge your phone using a wired connection or connect it to your PC to sync media and apps.

How to add wireless charging to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Apple embraced NFC with their contactless payment system on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but there’s one wireless standard that they’re still refusing to support: Qi wireless charging. If you’re looking for an easy way to add this helpful ability to your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, then we have just the thing for you: a Qi Wireless Charging Receiver.

No more messy cables

The advantage of wireless charging is that you avoid the hassle and clutter of cables.  Instead of needing to plug a cable every time you want to charge and remove it when you’re done, all you need to do is place your iPhone on your Qi wireless charging pad and everything will happen automatically.

Easy to install

The Wireless Charging Receiver is easy to install and works well with any case. All you need to do is plug one end into the Lightning cable, then fold the charging receiver behind your iPhone. Next, place your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus into its case, with the wireless charging coil inside. The best iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus cases are those with an opaque back, so the wireless charging receiver is hidden from view.

You’ll get the convenience of wireless charging, without any modifications to the internals of your iPhone. If you want to switch to traditional wired charging at any time, just unplug the charging coil to free up your Lightning port.

Add Qi wireless charging to the OnePlus One and other Android phones

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

There are two types of phones in the world: phones with Qi wireless charging built in, and those without. Thankfully though, you can add wireless charging pretty easily. Just pick up a Qi wireless adapter that’ll sit behind your phone, inside your case, and you’ll get the benefits of wireless charging without needing a special case.

There are two different kinds of wireless charging adapters available, depending on the orientation of your phone’s microUSB port. If your microUSB port has the wide side at the bottom and the narrow side at the top, you’ll need the standard version. If it’s the opposite – wide top, narrow bottom – then you’ll need the inverted version.

Standard orientation

Inverted orientation

The OnePlus One requires an inverted connector. Other phones compatible with the Type B include the Google Nexus 5, the HTC One M7 and M8, and almost every other HTC smartphone. For a full list, see the compatibility tab on the inverted version product page.

Almost all other phones use a standard orientation microUSB port, including nearly all Samsung, Sony, Motorola and LG phones. For the full list (and it’s a long one!) see the compatibility tab on the Standard version product page.
