Thumbs up $15 Qi Wireless Power Charger Pad Review


I bought this charging pad on a whim having no idea what to expect. I am using it with a LG Nexus 5 with a Spigen Neo Hybrid case on it.
The unit has a very plain flat pad design with 2 LED lights on it. A red light and a green light. A red light is on when the unit is not charging or your phone is not connected/placed right. The light switches to the green light when everything is connected and charging.
The unit comes with a white usb cable to charge with. You need to use your phones outlet adapter.
I have used mine for several days and it has worked great so far. In fact I placed an order for a second to use at home today. I may even rig one up for a car mount soon as well.

It may be white (not my first choice) but for $15.39 with free shipping it cannot be beat. Great unit for a great price.

Find more info here:More info on the charger and where to get it

I bought amazon.com/gp/product/B00F5STIUK/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
this one and it was about 18$ when I ordered it. I believe it is the same thing but they are great. I got one and it charges to 100% and stays at 100% in the morning when I charge it at night time. This thing charges pretty quick too. Phone never gets hot when it is charging and I'm using a Spigen Neo Hybrid case as well

Had it for a month without any issues and it's cheap lol

I got one of these on eBay for 10 dollars. It looks like a premium quality product. Even the box that it came in was super nice. I love this charger especially for the price.

Got the black one, unfortunately i spent around 30$ for it. I also ordered some magnets which i intend to put inside it to transform the charger in a nice desktop stand.

What i don't like about it, it's glossy, fingerprints and smudges are extremely visible on the black version. The plastic around the LED could've been more opaque. Functionality wise, it's a good cheap qi charger!

I've got the black version of this charger. It works well with my N5 in a Spigen Slim Armor case and seems to output 700mA at its peak. Been afraid that a cheap QI charger might not have a very good regulator and would overheat the QI and battery circuitry but so far that has not been the case. I've used the charger for about 2 weeks now and according to Battery Monitor Widget the phone has never exceeded 38 degrees centigrade.

Definitely recommend it considering the ridiculously low price and satisfactory performance. Paid $15.35 for mine on ebay from siqi_etech on November 2nd.

I love these. I have a couple around my house now. I also cut one up to add wireless charging to my 350z:

Oh and FYI amazon stocks them now (as in fulfilled by Amazon, not 3rd party). My first 2 were from a 3rd party on amazon so it got shipped from china. Now you can get them w/ free shipping direct from amazon.
