Can I charge my smart­phone wire­lessly?

Australian T3 - - HORIZON -

ATrust Ap­ple to get peo­ple ex­cited about a tech­nol­ogy that’s been around ages. The Qi charg­ing cir­cuit in the iPhone X isn’t a new thing, but Guru’s bun­dle of ru­ined charg­ing cords is tes­ta­ment to its use­ful­ness.

Short an­swer: yes. If your phone has Qi charg­ing built in, you just need a charg­ing pad – Anker does one for around $45. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to add it on. On iPhones, tuck the rib­bon-ca­bled iQi Mo­bile Qi Re­ceiver ($50) into a suit­able case (or, in­deed, buy iQi’s Qi­in­te­grated case). Sim­i­lar re­ceivers are avail­able for An­droid.
