Energizer’s Qi Wireless Power for iPhone and BlackBerry

Posted by at 10:03 am on September 7, 2010

Energizer today released their  Inductive Charger. The plate uses the Qi standard to charge the BlackBerry Curve 8900 and the iPhone 3G/3GS without wires. Both smartphones need a special add-on, either a battery door for the Curve or a full case for the iPhone. From the photos the,  iPhone case appears to block the Dock Connector, however.

The base plate itself isn’t limited to the two devices and should power up any Qi-capable device that uses 5W of power or less. Energizer hasn’t said how long either of the phones take to reach a complete charge versus a wired link.

Inductive Chargers should reach stores in October with a price of $89 for the core device. The BlackBerry and iPhone cases cost the same $35.
