I have countless wireless chargers here in the house but still I find the uptake rather slow here in Ireland, It is convenient yet a slower charge but no messing with cables and saving wearing your port down what have you to lose with your phone charging overnight??

Presentation to begin with here is the best I have seen in such an accessory in a long time and that alone for me is a great start with any product this comes in a quality material box and also comes with some branded stickers inside and we get USB-C out of the gate.


Like I say this is premium and there is a difference between such and cheap wireless chargers and for me having a good look is worth every penny and in this case this you get quality materials on top and no cheap plastic housing or anything like it.

This is made with Leather and Chrome and it has some weight to it which is a good thing you can feel the quality throughout. This is an upright charger so you cant have your device in landscape mode to consume media but you can still do all the things you need to do in portrait mode so no loss there, the phone will not move or budge once placed on the unit and look good doing so.

There is a nice trick up this units sleeve too with the removable oval piece which can be place flat on any surface giving you some flexibility too and not only that you can charge your Airpods or any other QI enabled device. The charge rate is up to 10-Watts but this is the norm however like I said most cheaper alternatives give you just 5-Watts and you can of course leave your case on your smartphone too which is ideal.

The question here is it worth the price, For me it is and owning multiple wireless chargers most of which are cheap and cheerful or ones that came with devices of old this will stand out and look good at any office desk or bedside locker unlike others on the market, After that it is up to you but this looks good has got a superb build and is multi functional and portable.

  1. Hi Jim, The big thing to keep an eye out for is the power rating, i bought one last year for isobelle cheap with low power, took forever to charge, then bought another one , higher power faster charging,
