Seneo Qi Wireless Charging Stand
I look forward to the day when all phones will just automatically charge themselves over wifi when the phone is connected to it, and the days of finding your charging cord and plugging it in is reserved for only those times when there is no wifi available. Until then we have moved a step forward and Qi wireless charging is available.
Now Qi is not truly wireless because the actual stand needs to be plugged into a computer or wall plug via USB but it is wireless in the sense that you just sit it on the charging stand and there is no plug or port sticking up that your phone must attach to. It is rather nice to be able to just plop your phone down instead of having to make sure it is connected to the stand in any way.
Charging times via this method I have found rival having it plugged in normally, so it’s not like it is going to take your phone longer to charge. I am also a fan of the charging stands because I just like putting my phone on a stand rather than sitting on a table where it can easily get knocked off or a spill of a nearby refreshment could signal the death toll of your phone.
Now lets talk specifically about this Seneo wireless charging pad. I love the flat black texture, the low profile and the angle the phone sits at. I could however do without the Seneo name emblazoned on the front of it, however when the phone is on it you won’t see it and thankfully they didn’t do it in bright white so it’s not that obvious.I am happy with the charging speed but really wish all companies would provide 6ft cords rather than 3ft because you may want to keep your charger away from a computer and in a spot where a wall plug is not directly behind the charger. I also really like the slim blue light that appears along the bottom of the charger to let you know it is on.
One thing you should be aware of is that you either have to put your phone on the charger without a case, or the case can only be a couple mm thick in order for the charging to work. Thin cases are everywhere in so many styles though that this should not be a problem.
Now in order to use this charger your phone needs to be Qi compliant and below I have listed phones that are compliant, however if you don’t have a compliant phone, there are adapters you can purchase for $10-$12 that will allow you to use it.
