The market for wireless charging devices is increasing as people continue to look more and more for the convenience of keeping their smartphones powered up without carrying cords everywhere they go.
Stocking stuffers and small surprises are smart to store away for last minute gifts so take a look at some of the gadgets below to see what's on the market as the gift-giving season begins to roll around.
1. Samsung Wireless Charging Pad $49.99- With alerts that let you know when your mobile has begun charging and when it is finishing, this charging pad has several convenient features that users might be interested in, such as its ability to immediately begin charging your phone as soon as it is placed on the device. The one real hang-up about this charger is that it's technically not "wireless" because the charger does have a cord that must be plugged into a power source. It doesn't have an internal battery either, so it can't be charged and used elsewhere.
2. WoodPuck Wireless Charger $59.99- For the stylish and environmentally conscious friends on your list this year, take a look at the WoodPuck Wireless Charger available at fonesalesman. Made of natural bamboo, this accessory monitors to ensure that it doesn't become excessively hot while charging using Poor Sync Detection and gives an audible alert to let the user know his or her device is not properly placed. It works with any QI compliant device and looks great on your coffee or bedside table.
3. Apple Watch Wireless Charger $79 - Okay, okay, so this product has been catching some flack since it's release due to the fact that it is the only wireless charger that is compatible with the Apple Watch. The big improvement here for Apple product users who know that it's the little things that count is that the watch can now be placed upright on its side on the charger. Finally, watch wearers can use the device as an alarm clock, that's progress people!
