PowerPic Wireless Charger – Review
Manufacturer: Twelve South
Retail: $ 79.99
Hates a messy nightstand or desk? What about an iPhone that is invisible? PowerPic itself is a handsome photo frame. Plug the phone into the delayed edge, and an induction Qi charger built into the back of the frame starts to charge it magically.
The frame is made of New Zealand pine with a soft semi-gloss white (or black) finish. Simple clips open the back to accept a standard 5 x 7 image. Qi certified charger supplies up to 1
PowerPic includes a USB-C to USB-A cable, so the connection to the phone charger is easy. It's a secure metal leg with a rubber tip that protrudes from the back of the frame. This provides stability if you need to manipulate the phone while it is in the frame. A small LED on the back indicates charging status.
This beautiful frame and charger is not cheap, but like other twelve southern products, it's an innovative concept combined with great design. Building quality is exceptional and a charger like this solves a number of problems – it costs the phone, it eliminates clutter, and with a picture of the family or dear, it is a nice addition to the bedroom or work area.
