I’m a bit of a tech geek and I’m always interested in new products that I think will make life easier, so I’m pretty excited about trying out the Energizer Qi Inductive Charger!
According to their press release, “Next generation charging technology for smartphones has arrived with the Energizer® Inductive Charger. It offers an easy and convenient way to charge smartphones without cords and cables. This advanced technology features Qi… the new universal standard for inductive charging, so it will power up devices like smartphones now and in the future regardless of manufacturer. The Energizer® Inductive Charger is designed to work with Qi-enabled devices, whether Qi is built into the device or the device has a Qi accessory. It features two large charging zones that don’t require locking the device into a precise position, so you’ll be sure to have your phone charged and ready to go when you need it. It also features a USB port to meet additional charging needs.”
From what I have read, the benefits I see to this first generation of Energizer Qi Inductive Chargers are that they allow for “cord-free charging for the iPhone® 3GS/3G and BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 via sleeve and door accessories”, are “compatible with Qi-enabled devices today and in the future; Qi is an open source standard for products defined for 5 watts of power or less (e.g., phones, mp3 player, cameras)” and that it “Offers two large inductive charging areas with one additional USB charging port”. If that wasn’t enough, it also is great because it is a wireless charger!
I can’t wait to try out the Energizer Qi Inductive Charger and share what I’ve learned with you!
