Here’s something new: a Qi wireless charging enabled desk lamp called the Aircharge Koncept. The idea is quite sound; replacing two dedicated devices with a single, beautiful device. And the Koncept is nothing if not gorgeous, with a sleek modern design that fits rather nicely with the smartphone that’ll be nestling on top of it.
The Koncept is made up of three hinges, allowing light to be distributed wherever you like. The LEDs used here provide high-efficiency energy, producing light without much heat or other waste.
The wireless charging follows the Qi standard, meaning you’ll have instant compatibility with a range of phones from Google and Nokia which have wireless charging built in. You can also add wireless charging to most phones, including iPhones, Samsung Galaxy devices, Sony phones and some additional Nokia Lumias. For more information, visit our Wireless Charging Guide.
The Koncept is a pretty cool concept, don’t you think? It’s available for pre-order right now from Mobile Fun.

Wireless chargers are getting increasingly popular, but the vast majority that we see are desk docks. Today, we’re unveiling something different: a Qi wireless dock for your car. The Air Dock combines a wireless charger and a car holder to produce a brilliant two-in-one accessory. Let’s take a closer look.
The Air Dock has a bold streamlined look. Instead of the traditional heavy clasps holding your phone in place, there’s just a simple pad. This micro-suction foam pad holds your phone in place, helped by magnets inside. This means you can just place your phone on the pad, and immediately it will be held into place, without the fuss of squeezing into a clip. Picking up your phone is similarly quick and easy.
Once installed, the Air Dock begins charging your phone immediately. The Qi wireless charger inside is compatible with a wide range of phones from Google and Nokia, and many other phones – including Samsung Galaxy phones and iPhones – can be charged wirelessly using a wireless charging case or cover. For more information on how wireless charging works, check out our guide to wireless charging.
Otherwise, the Air Dock ticks all the boxes that you’d expect. The suction cup mounting allows you to affix the car holder to your dashboard or windscreen, or even your desk at the office. The car holder can also rotate, allowing you to find the perfect angle and position for your phone.
The Air Dock is a solid car charger and car holder, and should prove quite popular with owners of wireless charging capable handsets. For more information and photographs of the Air Dock, please visit the product page linked below:

Wireless charging offers a slightly more convenient way of charging your phone, eliminating the hassle of plugging and unplugging. So far we’ve mostly seen Qi wireless chargers that sit on top of desks, some of which serving as a stand as well. Today, we’ll be looking at something rather more streamlined – a wireless charging pad that sits inside the desk itself.
The ZENS Qi Wireless Charging Pad for Furniture is designed to be installed at the surface of the desk or other piece of furniture, providing you with a clean and totally wireless surface. You just drill a circular hole in your piece of furniture, then slot the ZENS Wireless Charging Pad for Furniture into place. Meanwhile, the wires that connect the charger to the wall socket are kept out of sight below. It’s a clever solution, and one that is a step ahead of previous solutions.
Despite its unique positioning, the ZENS Qi Wireless Charger works like any other. It will charge your Qi-compatible phone or tablet until it is full, then over-charging protection will shut off the power to prevent excess heat buildup.
The Qi standard used here seems the favourite for phones in the future, and is already supported by a wide range of models from Samsung, Google and Nokia, among others. This means that your ZENS Qi wireless charger will remain useful for the foreseeable future. For more information on Qi, see our wireless charging guide.

Better late than never right? The Google Nexus Charging Orb is finally available in the UK. The Charging Orb is probably the nicest wireless charger that’s been released so far, but it’s taken some time between the initial announcement with the debut of the Nexus 4, and its actual availability in the UK this month.
This elegant wireless charger supports the Qi standard, making it ideal for the Nexus 4 and new Nexus 7. It can also be used with a wide range of devices that either come with Qi wireless charging built in (like Lumia 820 and 920 Windows Phones) or have wireless charging accessories available (like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4).
The wireless charger provides 1A of power just by touching your Qi-compatible smartphone to the sloped stand, ensuring rapid charging. There are no wires between the phone and the charger, so you’re able to easily pick up the phone whenever you need to take a phone call, use an app or leave the room. Without the hassle of plugging and unplugging, you’ll be free to use your phone or tablet whenever you need it, without the risk of forgetting to plug it back in when you’re done. Of course, the Charging Orb also has some great safety features – it’ll automatically stop charging when your phone is fully charged.
The Nexus Charging Orb is a great first-party accessory for the Nexus 4 and now for the new Nexus 7, so if you’re still on the hunt for a quality wireless charger then it should be at the top of your list. We wish it was here earlier, but just think of it as just in time for the Nexus 7 2!
Are you still interested in the Nexus Charging Orb – maybe as the perfect charger for the new Nexus 7 2? Let us know what you think in the comments below! Thanks for reading the article and have a great afternoon!

The official LG Nexus 4 wireless charger is coming soon to Mobile Fun. You can order one now for only £59.99 and it will be dispatched as soon as it arrives in stock.
This official LG wireless charger has been designed specifically for the Nexus 4 but it can be used to charge any other Qi compatible device such as the Lumia 920 or a Galaxy S4 with a charging cover.
If you’re looking for a wireless charger with a great design that will also double up as a stand (slanted at a 45° angle) then look no further. The LG orb is not only easy to use (pop device on to charge and the Nexus quickly sticks to the charger) it also has a pretty cool feature: the Orb automatically cuts off the power once your device is fully charged in order to prevent over charging which can decrease battery life and battery life expectancy.
Featuring great design, the LG Wireless Charging Orb is the perfect companion for your LG Nexus 4.
The Orb’s design is a perfect match for the Nexus 4. So it looks great but let’s talk specs. Expected charging time to full is approximately 4 hours and the Orb weighs in at approximately 130, not that you’ll care as its home will be probably be your desk or night stand.
