Like many others, we have several devices that are always needing to be charged. It seems as though they all seem to need to be charged at the same time, but it seems as though we have things plugged in and charging everywhere. When I heard about the new Energizer Qi, I was very excited to learn more about it. I think we have found a solution to having to charge all of our smaller devices at the same time and not having the plugs to do it or having to plug them in, in various places in the house. Here is some info on the new Energizer Qi:
Energizer® Inductive Charger
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 (pronounced chee), 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.
The Energizer® Inductive Charger will be introduced with accessories to enable Qi-compatibility with popular smartphones. Ultimately, doors and sleeves will not be required as manufacturers begin introducing new devices with the Qi standard built in.
Designed in cooperation with Wireless Power Consortium co-founder ConvenientPower, the first generation of the Energizer® Inductive Charger:
• Delivers easy, convenient, cord-free charging for the iPhone® 3GS/3G and BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 via sleeve and door accessories
• Offers two large inductive charging areas with one additional USB charging port
• Is 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)
• Provides freedom of placement within the two large inductive charging areas
• Does not contain magnets for alignment, so charging doesn’t require precise placement
• Features a sleek, rounded rectangle design with two LED charge indicators
• Available November 2010
• MSRP: $89.00
So now that you know about what it is and how it works, you are thinking, I need to get one of these! I know that is what I was thinking when I first hear of the new and totally Awesome Energizer Qi! Qi (pronounced ‘’chee’’) is a brand new technology that brings consumers the freedom to charge their smartphones, MP3 players, cameras – any device 5W or less – on a single charging station, regardless of manufacturer. Energizer is providing one lucky reader with a $25 gift card from a major retailer, which they can use towards the purchase of the brand new Energizer Inductive Charger.
