Qi charging is becoming more and more popular. The explosion of phones with the native ability to use wireless charging and the ability to buy additional hardware to enable it means that pretty much any phone can have wireless charging if you want it to. So the question is, what’s the best Qi charger for you? We’ve taken a look at several products in the past from Tylt and I personally love the Vu and Vu solo but on my nightstand at home is the Incipio Ghost 220 Qi Charging Dock.
First a bit about Incipio’s Qi chargers and naming scheme. Incipio offers everything up from a single mat charger to the ability to charge three devices at the same time. In the case of the Ghost 220, you get two Qi charging hotspots and a USB port so you can plug in a phone and charge wired. I found this very useful as I have a Moto 360 and I was able to just plug in my dock for that into the Ghost 220 instead of taking up another outlet on my wall. The Ghost 210 gives you the same functionality of the 220 except no USB port (but you save $10). The Ghost 110 is a single charging pad and the 120 is a single charging pad plus one USB port.
The Ghost 220 is a solidly built yet light device. I would have no qualms about throwing it in my bag and taking it on vacation with me. It has non-slip feet on the bottom of the device so it’s not sliding around the table when you’re trying to place your phone in the correct charging position. Getting it into the correct position can be kind of difficult as you basically just have to eyeball and remember it but when you find the sweet spot a blue light lights up on the front of the device letting you know that it’s sending power to your device.
The Incipio Ghost 220 Qi Charging Dock is a solid product. It does exactly what it says it’ll do and makes your life a little easier. It can be a little frustrating trying to find your sweet spot but I’ve literally only used one charger that has ever made it easy so I don’t knock the Ghost 220 too much. It just has a problem that pretty much everyone else has. I love that I can charge two devices at the same time. It’s really convenient to charge up the Offgrid Qi Battery Backup that Incipio also sent over at the same time as my Galaxy S6. If you’re in the market for one of the best Qi chargers money can buy you, start your search with the Ghost 220.
