We iPhone users are suffering from a serious case of Qi envy — but, finally, there’s a wireless charging solution that’s practical and looks great. Tylt, which won a 2013 CES Innovation Award earlier this week for its Band car charger, has just launched a wireless charging dock called Vu. With most wireless chargers, the device has to be positioned just right, but Vu has multiple coils that can power Qi-compatible phones in any position.

The Vu is angled at 45 degrees, making for a nice stand to use your smartphone while it’s charging. Its soft, rubberized surface prevents devices from sliding around while powering up. Existing docks are typically very slow, but Tylt claims its wireless charging dock can charge devices as fast as a traditional wall plug.

Available in red, yellow, blue, or black, the Vu dock would make a fitting addition to a minimalist, modern home. Sorry iPhone users, only Qi-compatible phones like the Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S III, and Droid DNA can use the dock, unless you get a charging mat case. Neither the availability nor pricing has been announced yet.

  1. With this statement:

    How do you explain that the Galaxy S3 can use this charger when their isn’t a Charger Back for the S3?????

    • And the Link you have for the iPhone charging Case takes you to a Powermat case which isn’t Qi and will never be Qi ……

    • Try this link… New Egg or I bought it off Ebay. It actually comes from the same Chinese seller. I bought it using paypal and received it in 8 days. I commend them on shipping in a very timely manner. It fits a bit snugly so I’ve learned that it’s easiest to apply to the phone in a sideways manner starting from the right hand side when the phone is face down. It does fit appropriately once applied and works perfectly.
