7 must-have wireless charging gadgets

Al Sacco | Nov. 17, 2015
These seven wireless charging devices can make powering up much less painful. Most are relatively affordable and they're great gifts for your loved ones — or for you.

QiStone+ is also the only gadget featured here that is truly wireless. You need to connect it to a power outlet via a cord to fill the internal battery. However, when the battery is charged, you can power up other Qi-compatible devices without using any wires, which is tres chic.

The device also has a micro USB port so you can charge two devices at once, though you will need to use a cord for the second one. Four status lights on top show you battery capacity. And it also looks like a perfectly shaped rock. Why? I have absolutely no idea, but I kind of like it.

Most of today's wireless chargers look more than a little like those silly old UFOs in 50s B movies. These modern wireless chargers are generally designed to stand out, to grab your attention, but wireless chargers of the future will be much more inconspicuous.

Case in point: Fonesalesman's FurniQi wireless charging bamboo side table. Made of bamboo, FurniQi's modern, minimalist design is perfect for your connected home. Its tan-colored power cord blends in well with the bamboo, and you have to look closely at the table's surface to even notice its built-in charge spot.

FurniQi is available on Indiegogo at a starting price of $119.
