Scosche is much more than their car accessories. If you’ve been following their CES announcements this week, you know that Scosche has a lot in store for 2019, but you might be really intrigued by how they plan on keeping your home device charging organized with the Scosche BaseLynx Modular Charging System.
We’ve seen an abundance of wireless charging solutions for phones such as the current generation of Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones and similarly Qi-enabled devices but while many work, most look fairly utilitarian. The mophie charge stream desk stand stands out thanks to its style, but it is much more than that. It’s a fast, stylish and flexible wireless charger.
Twelve South makes accessories for Apple devices that are always simple, thoughtful and well-made. I’ve been a fan for years. The latest Twelve South offering is the PowerPic. It’s yet another wireless phone charger, but this one has a rather smart twist that puts it into the category of, “Now why didn’t I think of that.” Let’s take a look.
A few months ago I reviewed the Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge. It is a wireless car charger that holds your phone in place via magnets. I not only love it, but I use it every single day. The same magic is available for your desk thanks to the indoor version of the Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge.
I recently reviewed the Nomad Base Station Hub Edition. I love the sleek design, quality build and materials and the ability to wirelessly charge two phones and wired devices. Sadly, it doesn’t charge my Apple Watch. The new $119.95 Nomad Base Station Apple Watch Edition has the same great design, and it charges my Apple Watch.
We recently reviewed the Ventev wireless chargepad+. It’s a small, round disk covered with fabric that delivers 7.5W of wireless charging to Apple devices and 10W of power to compatible Samsung devices. To charge a device, you simply lay your phone on the chargepad+. If you need something fancier, more powerful and flexible, check out the Ventev wireless chargestand.
Qi Wireless charging is changing the technology landscape, cleaning up the clutter of cables and plugs. Makers of smartphones have been including this – dare I say – revolutionary technology for several years, and even automakers have gotten in on the act. For those who don’t have wireless charging capability in their vehicle, there is the Kenu Airframe Wireless and Airbase Wireless.
One main gripe I have with portable battery chargers is the need to carry a cable as well. While there are some that have internal cables to charge your things, I wanted to take full advantage of the wireless charging features of my iPhone. Now I can do that with the BRICKSPOWER.
As I have mentioned previously, on of the features, I like best about the iPhone X is its ability to charge wirelessly with Qi-enabled wireless chargers. The Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge takes that awesome feature to a new level with wireless, cradleless charging. And while you don’t need it, you’ll also want to pick up a Speck Presidio Mount case.
I’ve made no secret of the fact that the wireless charging on the iPhone X is one of my favorite features of Apple’s current flagship phone. I love having wireless chargers around the house, at my office, and now — thanks to the myCharge UnPlugged 10K — I can have 10,000mAh of wireless charging goodness on the go.
Since getting the iPhone X, I’ve been on a mission to place wireless charging stations in each room of the house. Until now, however, the charging pads were just that, charging pads. The Azpen DockAll D108 Fast Wireless Charging Sound Hub offers wireless fast charging for Qi-enabled phones but, as the name indicates, also doubles as charging and sound hub.
I recently reviewed the AOC 2781PQ 27” Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor. It was ideal as I set up my new home office. (Read the review.) When AOC asked me to also review the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging I was thrilled. I now have an awesome dual-screen setup on my desk at home!
Scosche is launching MagicMount Charge wireless charging magnetic mounts for tangle and cradle-free mounting/charging today at CES. There will be two models including one for the car as well as one for the home or office. Pricing has not been announced, but the two options will be available during Q1 of this year.
This week, along with a number of other auto writers, I attended the national press introduction to the 2017 Kia Cadenza in Middleburg, Virginia. The only things that made the heat and humidity bearable were the beauty of our surroundings and the fun we had while driving Kia’s second-generation four-door sedan.
If you’ve got a wireless charge capable phone, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and you’re not using a wireless charger, you’re missing out on a level of convenience that iPhone users can only dream about. Using the VHbox Vh Qi Wireless Charging Pad means no fumbling with cables — you just lay your phone down and charge it.
Today Mophie has introduced a wireless Juice Pack for iPhone 6/6s , iPhone 6 Plus, and 6s Plus. Starting at $99 and $129, the cases — which include the charging base — allow iPhone users to wirelessly charge their devices without removing them from the case.
iClever is a purveyor of smart USB chargers, Bluetooth accessories, and more which can be purchased on their Amazon shop. They have a large line of AC adapters for mobile device charging, USB adapters for use in cars, as well as Bluetooth speakers and headphones. Read on to hear about my experience with iClever’s BoostCube series and magnetic Bluetooth headphones.
If you happen to own a Quick Charge capable Android phone like the LG G5 or the Samsung Galaxy S7s, you might be wondering which charger you should invest in. I was sent the Choetech T513-S 3-Coils Fast Wireless Charger and the CHOE 18W Fast charger Adaptive Wall Adapter (try saying that five times fast).

One thing that I’ve always wanted as an iPhone user is the ability to charge my device wirelessly. Lets be honest my fellow Apple device users.. we envy certain Android devices that have this capability. That’s where BEZALEL comes into play. The Bezalel Latitude is a one of a kind gadget. if you’re familiar with battery cases, you probably dread having to use a micro-USB cable to charge your device, and always wondered “why not just include a lightning cable…
