Overview

When I thought that the uNu Unity Battery Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 couldn’t get any better, it just did. The uNu Wireless Charging Battery Case and Mat takes everything that the Unity case provided and adds the ability to wirelessly charge your device.

Covering the extra battery and performance of this would be going over old ground and was covered in my uNu Unity Battery Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 review, so go and have a read of that to understand just how good these range of cases are.

Design

The design follows the same as that of the Unity Case; they have similar dimensions, button aesthetics, and fit. The only difference is you get a panel on the rear case for the charging points. It’s very minimal and hardly noticeable.

The wireless charging mat is also very minimal and doesn’t look out of place on a bedside table or desk.

Functionality

The uNu Aero Wireless Charging Battery Case and Mat does exactly what it is supposed to do – wirelessly charges your Samsung Galaxy S4. Sure it seems a novelty at first, but it doesn’t get old and soon becomes second nature. The simple task of plugging your device in to charge now seems like a chore and simply laying your device down on the charging mat seems so easy you take it for granted.

The device does take longer to charge and you’ll find around an hour charge on the wireless mat will probably only yield around a 10% battery gain. But remember, you’re charging two batteries wirelessly. Ok, so it’s not really wireless since it’s charging through the two contacts on the back, but it’s still without wires so that counts.

Conclusion

The novelty never gets old and the uNu Aero Wireless Charging Battery Case and Mat is extremely good. It takes all what was good about the unity case and makes it a ton better. I just love being able to charge my Galaxy S4 without having to plug it in – I just wish I had more of these mats laying about the rest of the house.

The uNu Aero Wireless Charging Battery Case and Mat is available for only $89.95 from uNu.
