Energizer; Qi-Enabled 3-Position Inductive Charger with two LED lights indicates charging activity. With two inductive positions and 1 USB charging port. This unit is designed for future works with any Qi-enabled device through an adapter or an embedded chip and spatial freedom to move devices.
The Energizer Inductive Charger allows for easy charging of up to three devices simultaneously, with two zones for inductive charging and one USB port. The Energizer Inductive Charger will charge any mobile device that has embedded Qi (pronounced "chee") technology, regardless of the manufacturer, or any mobile device that is Qi-enabled with the help of an Energizer Inductive Charging sleeve.
Cordlessly Charge Three Devices At Once
The Energizer Inductive Charger conveniently charges up to three of your devices at one time. Two inductive Qi charging zones are located on the top surface of the pad for simple, easy charging. For both Qi and non-Qi devices, the USB port on the back is ideal for charging additional phones, headsets, mp3 players, cameras, GPS devices, and any other device up to 5 watts.
Qi: The New Universal Standard for Inductive Charging
Qi is the new universal standard for wireless charging, as defined by the WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) which is comprised of many of the major electronics and mobile phone companies. Qi technology allows your mobile device to be charged through induction, without having to actually be pled into anything.
When fitted with the right Qi-enabled sleeve or door,* the Energizer Inductive Charger charges both the AT&T and Verizon version of the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS/3G, and the BlackBerry Curve 8900.
* All Energizer Qi sleeve and door accessories are sold separately.

Qi Inductive Charging is the Future
While Qi Inductive charging currently relies on the use of sleeves and pads to charge devices, more and more Qi-enabled devices are already on the horizon. Many new products are being designed with Qi technology actually built into the device. Because all Qi-enabled products work with each other regardless of manufacturer, the Energizer Inductive Charger offers an excellent charging solution for now and for the future.

Why Qi Inductive Is Better Than Non-Qi Inductive Charging
Qi inductive charging is better than non-Qi inductive charging mainly because it is an agreed-upon standard. Over 80 companies in the WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) are involved with every aspect of making Qi a success. Beyond the big-name device makers, a host of electronics-component companies are designing the coils, chips, controllers, and other parts that will make Qi a standard part of charging 5-watt devices.
