Battery packs are dime a dozen, and some even include Qi wireless charging, but finding one you like enough to carry on a daily basis is a challenge. QiPack hopes to stand out from the crowded OEM battery pack field with a iPhone-aping design and a slick aluminium case.
QiPack combines a 3000mAh battery with the ability to charge wirelessly utilizing the Qi standard. Some phones and tablets, such as Google’s Nexus 7 or Nokia’s Lumia 1520, support Qi wireless charging natively. To recharge, simply place your Qi-enabled device on top of the QiPack. Unfortunately, inductive charging does take longer: a Nexus 4 or iPhone 5 will take just over three hours to fully charge, which is similar to other Qi mats.
Although the QiPack’s chamfered edges are a dead ringer for the iPhone 5, Apple handsets will require either a case or an accessory like the iQi. If you prefer your iPhone to remain stock, the QiPack can charge handsets through its USB port.
