5 exceptional wireless smartphone chargers
Wireless charging is exploding in a major way. Don’t believe me? Just check out this story from Engadget. Apparently Starbucks is partnering with Powermat to bring the Powermat wireless chargers into their stores, beginning on the west coast.
It’s no surprise why, either. With wireless technology becoming more affordable, wireless chargers have become more commonplace and the Powermat is quite a device. Offering up two wireless charging spaces for iPhones along with a protective case that fits the iPhone 4/4S and a Power-On-The-Go Backup Battery for an instant full charge whenever you need it, the Powermat has all your charging needs covered.
You don’t have to wait until Powermat hits your local Starbucks to try it out, either. The Powermat System is available at RadioShack right now for $99.99. Plus, you’ll get an additional 3 percent Cash Back bonus if you make your purchase through ShopAtHome.com.
If you’d like a wireless iPhone charger that isn’t quite so expensive there’s the Qi-Enabled Charger Sleeve for only $29.99 from TigerDirect.com. Savvy shoppers can get a 4 percent Cash Back bonus, too.
For the added benefit of an alarm clock along with your wireless charger, there’s the Oregon Scientific Time & Wireless Charging Station. It comes with a wireless charging doc plus an alarm clock and a display that shows indoor and outdoor temperature with the push of a button. Oregon Scientific also has a number of coupons for online shoppers.
For LG phones, there’s the LG Electronics WCP-300 Wireless Charging Pad. The LG charges as soon as you start resting your phone on the pad, and a charging indicator lets you know when your LG phone is fully charged. Amazon sells the Charging Pad for $49.99.
For a more generic charger there’s the Guide 10 Plus Battery Pack and Smart Phone Charger. The battery pack can recharge a phone 1 to 3 times per charge. It even has a built-in LED flashlight and it’s only the size of a cell phone itself, so it’s much more compact than other wireless chargers. It’s available from Brookstone for $47.99. Brookstone is also offering up 5 percent Cash Back for online shoppers through ShopAtHome.com.
