Get wireless charging on the move with HoverCharge

Many smartphone mounts are quite cumbersome. But this new wireless charging mount provides a safe resting spot for your device, without the need for magnets.

  • What is Qi? It’s a wireless charging standard that is supported by most top phone makers, including Apple, Samsung, LG, and Motorola.

  • Is wireless charging as fast as regular charging? Nearly. The gap has closed massively over the past couple of years.

  • Can I use a wireless charging mount in my car? Yes, you can. HoverCharge is a Qi-compatible charger that hooks on to your dash to provide power on the go.

Most new smartphones now support wireless charging. It might seem like a minor upgrade, but swapping your regular cable for a charging pad can save you a significant frustration.

The only problem with most Qi chargers is that your phone needs to rest on a horizontal surface. This might be perfectly fine on your desk, but it doesn’t really work in your car.

HoverCharge offers a neat solution to this quandary. This 3-in-1 wireless charging mount has a rubber surface that holds your phone like glue. As a result, you can easily charge your phone while viewing GPS directions or checking your voicemail.

Why should I upgrade to wireless charging?

Simply put, wireless charging is more convenient. Instead of poking and prodding with a connector, in search of the charging port, you just put your phone down.

While some wireless chargers struggle to deliver fast power, HoverCharge overcomes this barrier. This nifty charging pad offers 7.5 watts of charging power for iPhones, and up to 10 watts with Android devices.

It works with numerous Qi devices, and you don’t need a special phone case to make it work.

Aside from speed, HoverCharge’s best feature is the epoxy-based rubber surface. This material is so grippy that your phone will stay mounted even when the charger is vertical. There are no magnets or clips involved — you simply place your phone on the pad.

Super grippy

You can use HoverCharge anywhere, but it works particularly well as an in-car wireless charger. The supplied vent mount lets you attach the charger to your dash, and you get a car power adapter.

You also get a long-arm mount, which elevates your phone. This could be useful when you want to look up recipes in the kitchen, for instance.

“Charge your devices in any setting with the HoverCharge 3-in-1 Fast Qi Wireless Charger. It uses an anti-gravity epoxy-based rubber mount that holds your phone with or without a case. No magnets or metal plates required, so it doesn’t damage your phone or block NFC payments. ” — HoverCharge on IndieGoGo

This versatile device helps you use your charging phone with ease. It’s also compatible with a long list of devices, including recent iPhones, Samsung Galaxy devices, and Google phones.

Looking forward

The makers of HoverCharge say that the rubber stays sticky for a long time. However, it will be interesting to see if early reviews back up this claim.
