How to make a Qi wireless charging bedside table

Friday, June 28th, 2013

It’s useful to be able to put your phone on a wireless charger and have it topped up without a cable, but what if you could just put your phone on your bedside table and just have it charge there?

lobbamobba on YouTube has answered that question in style, showing a cool way of integrating a Nokia DT wireless charging plate into a common Ikea Hemnes bedside table with just an hour or two of work.

Once completed, you get a magic spot on your bedside table that you can just place your Qi-enabled phone to charge. It’ll work with the Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920, 820, 720 (as well as the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 with the appropriate wireless charging covers).

While it’s a bit harder to find that spot without seeing the pad itself, it definitely looks a lot better. Have a look at the video yourself and let me know what you think!

Nokia wireless charging NFC car holder is compatible with Nexus 4 and Galaxy S4

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Introducing the CR-200 wireless charging car holder featuring NFC technology.

Nokia Wireless Charging NFC Car Holder - CR-200

As can be seen above, this sturdy, high-quality, wireless charger can charge any Qi enabled phone such as the Nexus 4 or the Galaxy S4; the S4 needs to be fitted with a wireless charging cover.

The CR-200 features NFC technology which you can use to automatically launch programs or apps such as the Music player or Navigation software. These can be pre-defined and start when the handset is placed in the car holder.

The car dock supports both landscape and portrait orientations so you can twist and turn it left and right until you’re happy with the viewing position. It can be mounted on the dashboard or windscreen.

This original Nokia accessory is a very versatile tool. Not only can it be used to wirelessly charge other Qi compatible smartphones but it also has an extra USB output which you can use in conjunction with a cable of your choice to charge another mobile device.

All in all this is a very handy and well built official Nokia car holder that works just as well with handsets from other manufacturers such as Samsung and LG. Together with its versatility, the built-in Near Field Communications technology and extra USB port make it well worth the price.

The CR-200 is the first wireless charging car holder for Windows Phone on the market, and it’s compatible with the Lumia 720, 820 and 920.

The Nokia car holder is a beautifully simple device – just place it on your dashboard and plug it into your cigarette lighter, then place your phone inside. Your Lumia will automatically start charging wirelessly.

We’re happy to announce that we’ll soon have some first party Nokia Lumia 920 accessories in stock at Mobile Fun – including those amazing wireless Nokia Lumia 920 chargers and charging shells for the Nokia Lumia 820. Let’s take a closer look.

1. Nokia Lumia 820 / 920 Wireless Charging Stand (DT-910WH)

This wireless charging stand does exactly what it says on the tin – it wirelessly charges the Nokia Lumia 920 or charging-shell equipped Lumia 820 while keeping your phone in an upright position so it’s easy to keep an eye on incoming notifications.

The wireless stand even includes an NFC chip, allowing you to choose applications to launch and settings to toggle when you put your phone on the stand. That means it’s easier than ever before to remember to set that alarm before bed or open up your appointments when you get into the office.

The wireless charging stand comes in a choice of white or black, which should complement the bold colours of the Nokia Lumia handsets nicely.

2. Nokia Lumia 820 / 920 Wireless Charging Fatboy Pillow (DT-901RD)

If you’re looking for a more relaxed wireless charging option, then this should be at the top of your list. This Fatboy charging pillow offers a safe and comfortable place for your phone to recline, keeping it topped up without the hassle of plugging in your phone each time.

The pillow is small and stylish, measuring just 190 x 140 x 30 mm. It also comes in a choice of two bright colours – red or cyan. This way you can easily find a nice shade to match your phone.

3. Nokia Original Lumia 820 Wireless Charging Shell (CC-3041BK)

This wireless charging shell adds Qi-standard charging support to the Nokia Lumia 820. This means you’ll be able to use the accessories listed above and below to wirelessly charge your Lumia 820.

The inexpensive charging shell also provides excellent protection, wrapping your Lumia 820 in a protective layer that resists scratches and other damage. If you’re looking to get a case for your Lumia 820 anyway, why not get one that supports wireless charging too?

The case is built by Nokia themselves, so it fits the phone perfectly. It’s also available in all the right colours – white, black, cyan, red and yellow, so you can get one that perfectly matches your phone or choose a contrasting colour for a unique look.

4. Nokia JBL Powerup Wireless Charging Speaker (MD-100WBK)

This is the biggest Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 accessory ever – a full JBL speaker dock, augmented with Nokia’s Qi-standard charging technology for the perfect integrated solution. There’s also an embedded NFC chip, so you can easily launch the music player whenever your Nokia smartphone is charging.

You can just place your Lumia 820 or 920 on the top to charge it, and then play music through Bluetooth or using the 3.5 mm auxiliary cable. Of course, the speaker also is compatible with any music producing gadget, from MP3 players to smartphones to tablets, that support either Bluetooth or have a 3.5 mm stereo jack.

For a beautiful sound and a clever wireless charging solution, you can’t get any better than the Nokia JBL Powerup Wireless Charging Speaker – it’s the ultimate musical accessory for the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920. The speaker even comes in a choice of three colours – black, white or cyan.
