Wireless charging is back in style, as just about every recent flagship phone supports it — including the Galaxy S10, Pixel 3, iPhone XR/XS, Note9, and LG G8. If charging speed isn't a high priority, Newegg currently has a Choetech Qi charging pad for $6.99. That's half off the current Amazon price. Read More
If you missed out on the last short-lived Samsung wireless charger sale, today's deal might have been worth the wait. Right now Samsung is selling its first party "Slim" wireless charging pad for a mere $15. That's a $20 discount and less than half the original $35 asking price. Read More
Along with the new hardware announcements at Google's event in New York City, the company also revealed a new accessory for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Appropriated named the Pixel Stand, it's a wireless charging stand that, in typical Google fashion, does more than just recharge your phone. Read More
Usually, we aren't too into Kickstarter stuff here at AP. No small number of crowdfunded endeavors have failed to materialize in the past, and too many of them are merely rebadged OEM goods. But in this brave new dongle-filled world, the HyperDrive has caught our eye. It's a combo USB-C hub, Qi charger, and phone stand all in one. And, unlike many Kickstarter promises, this one has already hit its funding goal. Read More
Not everyone has a car with Android Auto built in. Some of us have to make do with firing up the app when we pile into our car, sorting through a tangle of cables, Bluetooth devices, and clamps with our phones before we head out. If you'd like to streamline that process a bit, or if you've yet to join the Android Auto app-powered ranks, iOttie has four different car mounts that are Deals of the Day over at Amazon and 30% off.

Woot, a daily deals site owned by Amazon, has a special today for a pair of Samsung's Fast Charging Wireless Qi stands for $50. Just last month the site had these for $55, and patience has earned you an extra $5 savings. As before, if you don't need Samsung's "Fast Charge" tech, then you're probably better off with cheaper chargers elsewhere. But, for first party Samsung Fast Chargers, this is a good price. Read More
Woot, one of my favorite places for random good deals, is having a special today on Samsung's wireless chargers. You can pick up a pair of the Fast Charge Qi stands for $55. Given that they usually cost about $50 each when new, two for $55 is a pretty solid deal for almost half off. Keep in mind, if you don't need the Fast Charge tech, then you can pick up regular Qi chargers for less elsewhere. Read More
This isn't really so much news as "I thought this was kind of cool and wanted to share it with all of you." I just received an evaluation unit of Samsung's new wireless fast charge pad for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note 5, and upon opening I noticed immediately that it was quite a bit thicker than Samsung's old Galaxy S6 wireless charging pad. I then spied an array of what looked like (and as it turns out, are) ventilation openings all along the bottom of the charging puck. Could it be? Did Samsung build a phone charger with a fan inside it? Read More
Dude, what is your problem. You have a sweet new phone with wireless charging capabilities and yet you still are wasting whole seconds every day manually plugging in your phone like a neanderthal. Why? Because, you complain, wireless charging plates are just too darn expensive.
Not today they aren't. Amazon has two sweet deals on a pair of different wireless charging plates. One of the two is sure to fit your needs and your budget.
First up we have the hockey puck shaped Anker PowerPort Qi Wireless Charger. It comes with a MicroUSB cable but you will need to provide your own power supply. Read More
I dig my TYLT VU, and it's how I charge my Nexus 5 basically every night. Like most users who get used to never having to plug in their phone, I get slightly annoyed when I have to search for the cable and stab the microUSB port for a dose of juice. Typically, this only happens in the car, because I've been using a standard car charger for what seems like an eternity. Till now, anyway.
Today, TYLT is announcing the VU Car Charger, the company's first Qi-compatible wireless charger for the vehicle. I've been using it for the last week or so, and I already can't see myself going back to a traditional charger. Read More
