Energizer Inductive Charger Review
Just out of curiosity, we placed a cloth over the Energizer Inductive Charger to see if it would still work – and rightfully so, it did! And don’t worry, you won’t get zapped or anything if you happen to place your hand or finger on the charging pad itself.
There’s no arguing the convenience factor that the Energizer Inductive Charger brings to the table, but its $89.99 cost for the charging station itself, combined with the average $30 cost for the Qi compatible covers, does make it rather pricey in the end. Regardless of that, we fully adore how it charges our smartphone in the same amount of time it does with using its usual wall charger, but even more when we don’t have to fumble around with wires, although it doesn't really save you the need of having your device positioned statically on a certain spot. Additionally, there's that problem with having to wear a special case for certain devices, which might be too much of an inconvenience for a lot of users.
Ultimately, we would only recommend that you purchase it if you want to be ahead of the curve and happen to own the iPhone 4, 3GS, or the BlackBerry Curve 8900 – seeing those are the only ones that Energizer specifically caters to right now.

Hey everyone, I'm an official rep from Energizer. I just wanted to let you know the Qi standard for wireless, inductive charging is catching on. In fact, since this article was posted in May, Qi-compatible battery covers have arrived for the LG Revolution, HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Droid Charge. Each will work with the Energizer Inductive Charger. More info can be found here:http://energizer.com/inductive and here:

Inductive charging uses the electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. A charging station sends energy through inductive coupling to an electrical device, which stores the energy in the batteries. Because there is a small gap between the two coils, inductive charging is one kind of short-distance wireless energy transfer. Inductive charging carries a far lower risk of electrical shock, when compared with conductive charging, because there are no exposed conductors. The ability to fully enclose the charging connection also makes the approach attractive where water impermeability is required.
