Chargers, chargers, chargers. We all need them in today’s world for various things and we all prefer various types of chargers or even need various types of chargers for whatever reason. With my recent upgrade from the iPhone 7 Plus to the iPhone 8 Plus, it was time for me to get back into the wireless charging game. I hadn’t used any devices in quite some time that did wireless charging and the folks at HyperGear reached out to me and asked me if I was interested in their new HyperGear UFO Wireless Charging Pad that lights up, well, just like a UFO might light up.

About The Product

The HyperGear UFO Wireless Charging Pad is no larger than the size of a coaster that you would have on your desk or table to place a drink or drink cup on to keep it from sweating and ruining the wood of the table or anything similar. The HyperGear wireless charging pad is super light weight and only requires a micro USB to USB cable to give it power.

Once it’s plugged up and powered, you’ll see a little red dot on the top of the charging pad to let you know it’s got power. The ring will also be lit up red a little bit when there’s no device in place being charged. Once you place a device onto the pad, you’ll hear your device make a noise that it’s charging(with the iPhone 8 Plus at least) and the ring will light up blue to easily let you know the device is charging. When in a dark room, this actually looks pretty damn cool and in some ways I guess it certainly resembles what a UFO might look like if we were ever to see one.

The good thing about the HyperGear UFO Wireless Charging pad is there isn’t much to say about it as it’s a product that just simply works, works very well and is very compact and therefore not something that really takes up much space. It’s one of those products that you can place on your work desktop, personal desktop at home or even your nightstand. Then place your Qi enabled device right onto it and forget about it while it charges the battery. If you need to look at the device while it’s on the charger, that’s quite simple too since it’s laying face up and easily accessible.

Final Thoughts

If you own a device that has Qi wireless charging capabilities then I definitely recommend the HyperGear UFO Wireless Charging Pad as the device to own. You can pick one up from Amazon by hitting the link below for only $19.99 which is a superb price. You’re getting a product that just works out of the box with little to no interaction. It will keep your device charged throughout the day while you’re at work or at night while you’re sleeping and still allow you to easily grab your device to use it if need be. Plus you get the really cool lighting effects which just adds to the awesomeness of the product.

It’s very portable so you can take it most anywhere you want and use it as long as you have a way to power it. It fits easily into a purse, backpack or anything similar and is durable enough that you don’t have to worry about it breaking or snapping in half.
