Can't get the Orb? Take a look at this...
Review is up! Click here
*Just a foreword...I am not saying that this QI charger is better (or worse) than the Orb. This is not a comparison of any sort. Rather, I'm raising attention for this charger for those unable to get the Orb (pretty much everyone outside the US) and/or those who personally do not like the Orb. With that said, let me give you my thoughts*
Right, so I stumbled upon this very good looking QI charger for the Nexus 4, and I think it deserves a thread of its own.
to see the product. You will find high quality pics/renders in the listing.
For a start, it looks miles better than those unsightly large ones being sold by fasttech, and the plasticky (is that a word?) "small" ones. This charger looks truly compact and I love the aluminium finish. The charging light is also well placed and not obtrusive. IMO, a beautiful device like the Nexus 4 should be used with equally beautiful hardware.
Another bonus is that this charger is actually from a reputable brand (at least in China) called Metrans
. Again, I find this to be a more promising sign of quality than what the unbranded ones have to show for.
My point being, if for whatever reason you cannot or do not want to buy the Orb (I live in the UK and personally prefer to place my gadgets flat), this charger may be worth considering. I certainly think its worth buying over the massive ones sold by the likes of Energizer.
At $59, it's by no means cheap but I think its a double edged sword. Quality is usually proportional to price (Apple being the exception)
Unfortunately this seems to be a brand new product so I was unable to find any reviews. I have taken the leap however and bought one so I will update you all once it arrives. I expect it to arrive in about a week, so keep an eye on this thread if you're interested
