A quick look at an expensive but capable Qi charger
The short, short version? It's a pretty cool stand/charger, but it's expensive. And it only charges the Nexus 7 (2013) horizontally, not vertically. It does, however, work just fine with the Nexus 5, or Nexus 4, or other Qi-compatible devices you've got laying around. And you can charge through cases, which is always good.
A few other quick thoughts on the ASUS PW100:
- There's no magnet or anything in this charger, so you'll need to not bump things unless you want them to go flying. That's especially true if you're using something other than the Nexus 7 on it.
- There is a little lip on the front edge, so that helps. But, still, be careful.
- The PW100 comes with a 2A charger that has the biggest suppression core we've ever seen.
- The rubber foot does a good job of holding things down on the desk.
And, well, that's that. The ASUS PW100 is a perfectly capable charging stand. But $90? That's definitely a bit much.
