Dusan Belik of Serbia writes about his passion for all things techno as if they were alive and natural. He thinks that by using a smart phone to organise your life, you demonstrate how much you care about the way that you use your precious time on Earth. Fair enough… whatever turns you on? He also refers to the new Tylt VU charger is “sexy”… Sexy…? You need to get yourself a partner mate!
Whilst wireless phone chargers are surely not sexy, they can be extremely useful, for the simple reason, like all wireless technology, no wires are required. Given the obvious advantages of these devices, an increasing splurge of wireless phone chargers is arriving on the market.
Take a look at the top five…
The Tylt VU Wireless Charger is designed for Qi compatible smartphones and it has to be said that this novel charger looks like a mini sun-lounger and could well indeed look sexy if a totally naked miniature nicely rounded type was sunbathing on top of it!
A vibrant appearance is at the heart of the Tylt VU, although the red, blue and yellow ones perhaps aren’t going to light everybody’s fire. One of the features of this charger is that it works both horizontally or vertically, meaning that you can charge your phone at a 45 degree angle and still see its screen.
This colourful wireless mobile charger will shipped in June 2013 and will cost approximately £46.
