iPhone Gets Qi Wireless Charging with iQi Mobile (Video)

We’ve seen many other smartphones and mobile devices that support the Qi wireless charging standard, but the iPhone has thus far been left out of the wireless charging party. That’s changing with the iQi Mobile.

Compatible with the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S, as well as the 5th-generation iPod touch, the iQi Mobile works in tandem with your favorite soft iPhone case. Basically, it’s a very thin cable that plugs into the Lightning connector on your iPhone and then it wraps around to the back of your phone, held in place by your soft iPhone case.

You don’t have to worry about it adding all that much bulk as it only measures between 0.5 and 1.4mm in thickness. Once attached and held in place, you can then put your iPhone on any Qi compatible wireless charging pad and your iPhone will start getting juice.

The Indiegogo campaign has surpassed its $30,000 funding goal with seven days left. If you want to get an iQi Mobile for yourself, you’ll need to pledge a minimum of $25. The better deal is the $65 iQi Mobile Charging Bundle that also includes a limited edition Koolpuck charger in your choice of 14 colours, as well as the iQi Mobile charging solution itself.
