The iOttie Wireless Plus is the most stylish charging pad you can buy!

Wireless charging has been around long enough now that we've long surpassed the utilitarian design of those early wireless chargers. You've seen the ones that looked like miniaturized UFOs and stood out like a bizarre plug-in coaster on your desk.

iOttie has been one brand leading the way on innovative new designs for wireless chargers — whether for in your car (opens in new tab) or around the home or office (opens in new tab). This year, the iON Wireless charging pad got a trendy makeover to include a stylish heather fabric finish as you would find on smart speakers such as the Google Home Mini (opens in new tab) or the latest Amazon Echo (opens in new tab).

In the same way that Amazon and Google are trying to design smart speakers that don't look as out of place among your home decor, the iOttie hopes to do the same with iON Wireless Plus Fast Charger. It's Qi certified, of course, and compatible to deliver the best fast charging speeds for whichever device your drop onto it. Due to the 18W USB-C input, you can simultaneously charge a Galaxy S8, Note 8, or S9 at fast charging speeds while also using the included USB-A port to charge a second device.

It's thoughtfully designed with an internal air vent structure to prevent overheating and maximize charging efficiency, and the LED status light is easy to see at a glance without being distractingly bright if you like to charge your phone on your bedside table.

You can snag yourself a stylish new wireless charger for just $50, available in Ruby red, Ash gray, or Ivory white so you can get the one that best fits into your office or home decor.

  • I want a plaid one. Not grey, ivory, or red. Plaid.
  • I want an Oompa Loompa now!
  • Is it me, or is it a tad bulky? At first I thought it doubles down as a power bank.
  • Looks thicker than my Fatboy Pillow for the old Nokia qi charging pad.
  • I was thinking the same thing. My Fatboy Pillow is still working great, but this looks pretty cool too! And fast charging--I like it.
  • likey. will buy one
  • Can it charge through a wallet case ?
  • I bought one and ended up returning it because I have Spigen Tough Armor on all my phones and it would not charge through that case.
  • It looks kind of huge to me. There are better looking pads out there that don't cost $50. This one is only $32
