WiQiQi, a designer of wireless chargers for Samsung Galaxy phones, is introducing the i5 thin wireless receiver for Apple iPhone 5/5S/5C, and iPod touch.
It’s a more powerful (700 mAh) version of the WiQiQi Samsung receiver, with a thin ribbon and iPhone 5 compatible connector at the end. It attaches to the outside of the iPhone 5 and purportedly takes only seconds to plug the i5 to the charging port. It’s smaller and thinner than a credit card and will fit under any soft case.
You place the phone on top of any Qi standard compatible charging pad, and it will wirelessly connect and start charging. The WiQiQi i5 wireless receiver will be available in late February at a suggested retail price of US$30.
WiQiQi is offering discounted prices for “early bird” orders placed directly on www.wiqiqi.com before Feb, 29. The i5 wireless receiver will cost $5 when ordered with any WiQiQi charging pad, or $15 by itself.
