These days, wireless chargers come in all shapes and sizes and now they’re becoming more invisible. Well, not completely invisible, but this new company called InvisQi has something they’re calling a “wireless charger, not visible to the eye.”
I’ve been using the InvisQi wireless charger for a few weeks and so far it’s been pretty good.
The main selling point of the InvisQi is to be able to charge most surfaces. Meaning, you’ll be mounting this charger under a flat surface like a desk or nightstand.
The device is able to charge through most materials (wood, glass, plastic, marble etc,) that are up to 30mm/1.18-inches. It won’t work with metal surfaces. I tried using the InvisQi attached to my IKEA desk and it was just a bit too thick for it to work.
But when I mounted the InvisQi to my nightstand, it worked great, even with a case on my phone.
Inside the box, you’ll get the InvisQi charger which is a large grey puck. There’s also a power supply that uses a barrel connection along with a phone placement sticker, mounting hardware (3M strips and screws) and a circuit board with LEDs to help you test the placement of the charger.
I wish that the charger came with a USB-C charger and cable instead of this proprietary barrel connection.
The InvisQi works with most Qi-enabled phones, earbuds out there including both Android phones and iPhones.
It supports up to 10W fast charging on Samsung phones and 7.5W for iPhones. The company says the charger will automatically turn off when it detects your device is fully charged.
Using the InvisQi worked well, for the most part, the other times depending on your phone, you need to place it precisely over the charging spot to get it to start charging your phone.
Overall, the InvisQi is a cool wireless charging solution that works most of the time but can be a bit finicky.
The InvisQi is available now from the company’s website for $114 CAD ($89 USD).
