Why oh why do smartphone makers build awesome wireless charging technology into their handsets and then sell them without including a wireless charging pad in the box? Would it really hurt their bottom lines so much? The answer is no.
If JETech can sell a sleek ultra-slim charging pad for $12 shipped on Amazon, there is absolutely no reason why huge companies like Samsung can’t include a similar product in the box, though we doubt it will look anywhere near as cool as the JETech Ultra-Slim Wireless Charging Pad (which, incidentally, looks a whole lot like this the Etekcity digital bathroom scale, but that’s a whole different story).
Here are some key details from the Amazon product page:
- Wireless Charging: simply place down any Qi-enabled device or device equipped with a Qi-compatible cover, no cables or USB interface required
- Equipped with power-efficient idle mode that never overcharges your battery or wastes energy
- Friendly LED Indicator Lights. Input: 5V/2A; Output: 5V/1A
