ADATA unveils Elite CE700, a morphing Qi-enabled charging stand
ADATA Technology, a Taiwanese DRAM and USB drive manufacturer, just announced its upcoming charging dock – the Qi-enabled ADATA Elite CE700.

Like common Qi wireless chargers, the gadget can wirelessly charge compatible devices. But that's not its most prominent feature – in fact, the ADATA Elite CE700 is a morphing charging stand. The device itself consists of two brushed aluminum plates, which can be transformed into either a flat charging dock or an upright charging stand. The angle of the stand is adjustable and one of the plates is partly rubberized in order to prevent your smartphone from slipping while getting charged in an upright position.

The Elite CE700 charger stand also comes with several built-in protective mechanisms. The gadget comes with FOD (Foreign Object Detection) on board, which cuts off the electric current if a metallic object is detected between the charger and the charged smartphone. The overvoltage protection, on the other hand, will automatically power off the charging stand if the "voltage exceeds a safe level" in order to prevent any damage to the CE700. The overheat protection, as its name suggests, will turn off the charging stand if the temperature rises too high. When not in use, the device will enter into power-saving mode. The ADATA Elite CE700 also comes with a LED indicator, which shows the current status of the charging stand.

The charging dock has dimensions of 5.5 x 3.0 x 0.5 inches and weighs 3.5 oz. The price of the device is still unknown, however a list of the retailers, which will be selling it once it gets released, is available here.
