Go ahead and charge your iPhone X on a wireless Pikachu charger

We’ve waited years for the iPhone to support wireless charging. We wanted that convenience, we said. We wanted to be just like our Android brethren, we said. And now, I’m happy to share that we can all unite over a wireless Pikachu charger. A company called TeknFun just announced the Pikachu, which it says should be compatible with Samsung devices and the iPhone 8 and X.

It’s available through GameStop for $ 49.99, although it appears to be unavailable at the moment, even though it’s advertised as an online only product. It features three USB ports and Pikachu’s cheeks should light up when charging.

I love it. Now I need to buy a iPhone X or 8 so I can use it.

Mercedes’ wireless charger doesn’t play nice with the iPhone X

I’m driving a new 2017 Mercedes E300 today, and it comes with a built-in wireless charger, which is a nice feature for a $ 60,000 car. Now, let’s overlook the poor placement of the charger — buried behind the cupholders, for some reason — and get to the main issue.

If you have an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, which come with wireless charging, you can charge your phone on the pad, unlike previous iPhones.

The Grovemade wireless charger imagines a world where charging pucks look good

If you’re looking at a wireless charger — say, for your new iPhone X — there are plenty of good options out there, but from a visual perspective, you’re more or less consigning yourself to a plastic plate that sits on your desk.

But what if wireless chargers didn’t have to be formless slabs of plastic or metal? Then you’d probably have more products like the stylish Grovemade Wireless Charging Pad, which is made from cork and stainless steel and wouldn’t look out of place in a West Elm furniture catalog. The charger itself supports the Qi charging standard, includes a power brick, and comes in either dark gray or natural wood color options.

Unfortunately, while the Grovemade might be the nicest looking Qi wireless charger…
