Wireless Charging

4 years ago in Reviews by Wardy Miller | No Comments

CPI know it’s been a while since I have posted anything on the site, but I am going to rectify that today. Today I want to talk about wireless charging. Many phones do have the ability to charge wirelessly built in, however the iPhone does not. In order to leverage wireless charging, you must also by a charging case.
I have been using the QI wireless charging pad (found here), in addition to the Zens QI charging case (found here.) Now my friends have asked me “Why would I spend all this money to wirelessly charge my phone. (Which is a legitimate question). My answer would be convenience, I walk in my room toss my phone on the charging pad and that’s it. Once there is power to it, it will sync to iTunes as if you plugged it into power or via USB. I am using an iPhone 4S, when the 5S (or whatever it’s called) comes out, it may have wireless charging built in meaning that you won’t need a charging case, but as it stands you need to use one. The case I am using is $37.00 USD, which isn’t bad as it preforms 2 functions. Most cases on the market are around the same price and they don’t do wireless charging. While the charging pad is $50.49 USD, bringing the total package to $87.49 USD. While I understand not wanting to spend that kind of money, when you can simply plug it in, and this solution isn’t for everybody.
The bottom line: This one is totally personal preference. Personally, I like the ability to just drop my phone on the charging pad, and forget about it, then just grab it as I am running out the door.
What are your thoughts? Have you used wireless charging? Can you see a reason to do it? Lets hear your thoughts in the comments.
