ARK Portable Wireless Charger

Qi wireless charging pad isn’t really entirely wireless cos’ it still has to be plugged into a power outlet in order for it to charge your Qi-enabled devices, which also means portability is never in the equation. with the ARK Portable Wireless Charger, that kind of changed. as the name implies, it is a wireless charging pad that you know and at the same time, it encourages portability by packing a 5,200 mAh battery pack within which, according to its creator, offers up to three full charges for smartphones. now, this is what we call truly wireless, well, that’s until it ran out of juice and you have to plug it in to stock up the juice for the next round of outing.

iQi Mobile Wireless Charging for iPhone

we were surprised that Apple has gone to length to introduce fingerprint security feature and not the current hyped wireless charging. if we were to choose between those two features, we’d go for wireless charging as a more ‘practical approach’. i mean, i have never, in my smartphone using career thus far, thought keying a few numbers is a hassle at all. fortunately, you can now equip your latest iPhone 5s, or any iOS device with Lightning connector, with wireless charging capability without bulking up the device and the accessory to do just that would be the iQi Mobile Wireless Charging for iPhone. i am sure most of you have read about third-party wireless charging accessories for iPhone, but the iQi Mobile stands out as one that is ridiculously thin, at 0.5mm to be specific, and plugs directly to your device’s Lightning port.

behold. the future of seamlessly integrated wireless charging is going to start from your kitchen countertop. thanks to the collaboration between DuPont and Power Matters Alliance (PMA), in future we can expect Powermat’s place and charge technology to be implemented within DuPont Corian solid surface, a synthetic granite alternative commonly used for kitchen countertops, making your kitchen a place where you could charge your wireless charging-equipped devices without the clutter. if realized, which we hope soon, the DuPont Corian Powermat Wireless Charging solution would be a perfect companion to the Harman Kardon music kitchen cabinet that we saw two years ago. boy, are we excited. probably we are pretty tired of the clutter that cables have bring about in our daily lives. as you might have expected, the DuPont Corian Powermat Wireless Charging is not a reality just yet and hence, pricing and availability info are not available at this point. assuming price ain’t a hurdle, would you adopt such a technology? let us know in the comment below.

CherryCharger Wireless Induction Charger

no. that’s not a modified Mac mini, though it does have an uncanny resemblance to the Apple’s mini desktop computer. it is the CherryCharger wireless induction charger from the same dude who brought to you the weighty ConcreteCharger and this one is for the wood lovers. crafted out of old reclaimed black cherry planks sourced just outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania, the CherryCharger features the same technology like its concrete counterpart, but now with a soft top made out of wool felt instead of the cork top. sandwiched between the beautiful black cherry base and the wool felt top is a cool polycarbonate “light blade” that’s design to emit light indicating the charging status. the example you see here is a single device charger and it also uses the widely adopted Qi wireless standard, which means any devices equipped with the same wireless charging standard such as the Nexus 4 and the Nokia Lumia 920, or devices fitted with Qi wireless standard cases and dongles, will work with the CherryCharger.

Concrete Wireless Induction Charger

there is wireless induction charger and then there is the Concrete Wireless Induction Charger (officially, Concrete Charger). it may sounds pretty out-of-this-world, but we have already seen concrete-cast speaker and concrete USB flash drive, why not a concrete charging device? as the name implies, this particularly alluring wireless charging contraption is casted from concrete, forming a rounded triangular contemporary art piece that doubles as a wireless induction charger using the Qi wireless standard. though concrete, it is given a soft cork top so that it will be a scratch-free experience for your tech devices and an uber cool acrylic “light blade”, sandwiched between that cork top and the concrete base, keeps you in the know of the charging status.

Samsung GALAXY S4 Wireless Charging Kit

if you are looking for convenience in charging your S4 without having to deal with cables, Sammy’s GALAXY S4 Wireless Charging Kit might be an accessory of choice (for original accessories obsessed folks). out-of-the-box, the S4 is not wireless charging-ready, so in order to go the wireless charging route, you will need a wireless charging cover and a wireless charging pad. the charging kit uses Qi wireless charging standard as certified by WPC (Wireless Power Consortium), so if you already have a Qi-certified charger, you can just get the back cover for $39.99. if not, you will have grab the charging pad for $49.99 as well. charging time for the kit takes between 3-4 hours and the back cover will inevitably add a slight bulk to your slim S4, thus limiting the possibility of using it with protective cases.
