CHOETECH Circle Qi wireless charger (review)

CHOETECH seriously makes quality accessories for your mobile devices. They recently sent me the Circle Qi wireless charger to review, in addition to the quick charger for my car, and due to my experiences with their products. I even spent my own money buying more of their products for my personal use like their home quick charger. This happened to work out perfectly for me, as I have an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note5 to review which has wireless charging built into the device.

Let’s get into the review.

Design and Usage

Out of the box, the CHOETECH Circle Qi wireless charger feels like every other product they make – premium. The disk is compact but not so compact that it is a pain to find the right spot to charge your device. It is about as wide as the Note5 which makes for easy placement, and it’s not so big that it takes up an unnecessary amount of space on my desk.

The other nice touches CHOETECH put into this charger are silicon rings around the bottom and top of the charger. The rubber provides grip for the phone and the desk, keeping this unit in one place, and prevents your phone from sliding off the top. It’s a simple feature that pays huge dividends when it comes to ease of placement.The rubber grips onto the phone making it super easy to put the phone down in the right spot.

The other nice touch that they built into this charger was a blue light that lights up to show your device is charging.

I’ve owned several other wireless chargers and ended up putting them in a closet and disconnecting them, because their indicators lights were so bright that they kept me awake at night. CHOETECH knew this was a concern and built in an ambient light sensor, so when I turned off my lights so did the charger’s light. It’s a nifty feature that was well thought out and prevents me from putting electrical tape over the light.

Overall, I couldn’t have been happier with this wireless charger.

Summary

Not all products are built equally. I’ve owned many wireless chargers before but never found one that I loved. I actually really enjoyed testing this review unit and purchased another for my office(lab). As much as I love having the ability to swap batteries on my phones, I enjoy not having to plug my phone in to charge it almost as much. CHOETECH converted me into a wireless charger type of user. The CHOETECH Circle Qi wireless charger is only $19.99 on Amazon.com and comes with a micro USB cable. It’s a much cheaper alternative to Samsung’s official wireless charger which retails for $49.99.

CHOETECH builds some of the most high quality accessories you can get your hands on and I trust all of my devices with their products.

This device is compatible with the Galaxy S6/S6 edge/S6 edge+/Note5/Nexus 4,5,6 and all other Qi enabled devices.
