Energizer Unveils Wireless Inductive Charger for Blackberry and iPhone

by Shane McGlaun

Wires suck. We all know this to be true. Every time I try and plug my iPhone into the computer to sync or charge the thing, I end up having to dig around behind my computer to find the cable. This is why I typically use a dock to charge my iPhone.

If you want to go wire-free, Energizer has a new inductive charger that is Qi enabled. Qi is the wireless charging standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium, and should eventually make its way into more and more devices. For starters, the charger will work with the iPhone or the Blackberry Curve 8900. The battery door for the Blackberry and the sleeve case for the iPhone 3G/3GS are both sold separately. The device has enough room to charge three devices at the same time.

The charge plate measures 7.270″ wide x 0.93″ to 0.39″ thick x 7.918″ long so it won’t take up to much space on a crowded desk or counter. Once you install the battery door or sleeve onto your smartphone you just sit the thing on the charger to get powered up.

The charger base will sell for $89 (USD) and the sleeve or battery door are $34.99 – each with retail availability in October.

    That’s more than I paid for my brand new $99 iPhone itself.

    No thanks “Energizer Bunny”.

    Is the new Black Berry 9780 already Qi ready or does it need a sleeve?
