With wireless charging being a cool feature on some of the newer Windows Phones, the Energizer Qi Inductive charger is the perfect accessory for you. When we unboxed the Energizer wireless charger, we found that the device was simple to setup with just finding a location for the charge plate and plugging it in. After placing our Nokia Lumia 920 on the plate, it instantly started to charge making it function as well as we had hoped.

The technology

A Qi charger essentially charges a device by using an electromagnetic field to generate the energy. The phone has a receiver to get the charge while the plate, usually called a base station, has the power transmitter. The Energizer charger has an area where the phone has to be to get the charge and a blue light on the charger lets you know you hit it.

The Energizer Qi charger now sits in the TV room which allows us both to charge our phones while watching TV.

Conclusion

This device is pretty straight forward as you plug it in and place your Qi enabled phone on top of it. When the phone finishes charging you can move it or anytime in between. With the added benefit of being able to grab your phone when you need it and just place it back down to continue the charge the Energizer Qi inductive charger is the perfect accessory for your Windows Phone.
