The wait is almost over and we're already starting to see companies claiming to release iPhone 5 compatible accessories. Wireless charging is still a bit of a gimmick with Powermat being the first to get everyone excited about its wireless inductive charging products for mobile gadgets. Getpowerpad's own inductive chargers put a much more modern spin on wireless charging with its latest Qi wireless charger. The Qi is a single, portable gadget charging platform at an affordable price that with Getpowerpad receiver cases, is compatible with any future mobile phone Getpowerpad decides on supporting including the iPhone 5.
Currently the Qi will be able to start wirelessly charging any mobile phone that supports the international Qi battery technology standard. Samsung, LG, HTC, Nokia and Blackberry are those who currently support the Qi standard that is built right into the battery itself and will not require the addition of case receivers like the ones for the iPhone. The Getpowerpad Qi wireless charger will light up a blue LED strip letting you know your phone is charging coupled with a sound indicator. The Getpowerpad Qi will also be compatible with both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G/S and is expected to be released at the end of the year.
