iQi Mobile sets new standards in smartphone wireless charging.
Their newst product – the iQi Mobile Charging Bundle – is designed to allow you to charge your iPhone without the hassle of plugging and unplugging cables, and, the most important part, without the need of a bulky special case. The iQi works with iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and 5S and iPod Touch 5th Generation – for iPhone4 and 4S please check the Duracell Wireless Charger we featured earlier.
Here’s how it works: place the charging unit under your case (the charging unit is 0.5mm thick and perfectly fits under any case on the market), hook up the rubber cable ending with a Lightning plug into your iPhone charging port (the plug fits perfectly without adding any external parts to your iPhone) and place the phone on the charging unit. That’s it … you just activated wireless charging on your iPhone – check the video for more details and an actual demo of the product.
While there are other iPhone wireless chargers on the market (check an Amazon selection here), iQi stands apart of the pack by it’s low profile and the fact that you can use it with any iPhone case. Simply brilliant!
The iQi is in project mode over at Indiegogo and you can secure a wireless iPhone charging bundle for only $25. The campaign is fully funded, so no fear you’ll not receive the product. Delivery is scheduled for January 2014.
