Cell phones have become a necessity in most homes. The problem is, the more cell phones that are in a household, the more cords and chargers there are taking up space on kitchen counters, tables and more. This is something our family can relate to, which is why I was happy to come across the Energizer Inductive Charger!
Through innovative technologies, thoughtful design and consumer insights...Energizer continues to impress us with their variety of quality products ranging from batteries and chargers to portable power and lights. I have used Energizer products over the years and have always been very pleased. That's why I was excited to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review their Inductive Charger.

When the Energizer Inductive Charger arrived, I couldn't have been happier. I am not a fan of clutter, which is why my resolution for the New Year is to get more organized. One of the biggest challenges is definitely the kitchen. The counters are forever covered with papers as well as cords for charging cell phones, etc. I have been looking for a solution to our mess, and I had a feeling this would be perfect.
As I pulled the Charger out of the box, I was already impressed with its sleek, rounded rectangle design. We have found that it's most convenient to charge our cell phones and other devices in our kitchen...as this is a centrally located place in our house and somewhere we spend a lot of our time. I don't want something that is going to be an eyesore sitting out for everyone to see, and appreciate the modern look and design of this inductive charger.
Having never used a product like this, I couldn't help but wonder how easy it would be to use. Thankfully, I found out right away that it is super simple! I first plugged in the Energizer Inductive Charger and then slid the cell phone into the Energizer iPhone 4 Qi Sleeve.
I then placed the cell phone onto the charger. I love that there is a LED charge indicator on each side to let me know it's charging. The phone also showed that it was charging.
One thing that makes the Energizer Inductive Charger to use is that does not contain magnets for alignment so charging doesn't require precise placement. Having freedom to place it within the two inductive charging areas is great. Each space is large and by simply setting down the phone, it begins charging. It's that simple!
It is also compatible with Qi-enabled devices today and in the future (Qi is an open source standard for products defined for 5 watts of power or less) which means it will power up devices like smartphones now and those in the future regardless of the manufacturer. It will work with any Qi-enabled device, whether it is built in or has the Qi accessory. I also like the fact that there's an additional USB charging port along the top side. This is great for a third or non Qi-enabled device.
I have been extremely happy with the Energizer Inductive Charger! It's very easy to use and a convenient way to charge smartphones without cords and cables. Charging is now as easy setting your phone down...it doesn't get any more simple than that. I would highly recommend this product. You can learn more by visiting Energizer.
