The cutest wireless charger award at CES 2018 goes to... iOttie

The cutest wireless charger award at CES 2018 goes to... iOttie
Buoyed by Apple's adoption of the Qi wireless charging standard, accessory makers big and small have inundated CES 2018 with their pads, stands and sans-cable paraphernalia. Belkin introduced a few hockey pucks in different colors, for instance, but the cutest charger at the expo must be iOttie's new iON Wireless Fast Charging Pad that is coming our way this quarter. 

Clad in cloth, it is as inconspicuous and stylish as a wireless charging pad can be, and will look great on your desk available in five different colors to mix and match. The design doesn't take much space, and iOttie's creation sports a modern USB-C port for topping up, an extra USB output port and silicon pads for extra traction, but no distracting LED lights to speak of.

Moreover, the Qi charger can output up to 15W, so it can charge all popular phones that support the standard, like the Galaxy S8 or iPhone X, at full speed. IOttie is still mum on the pricing, but it shouldn't be long before we know the final tags. Do you like what you see here?

Wireless charging is cool....but you can't use it while charging.

You can use it, just limited. I used to use wireless charging quite a lot and making a call on speaker works perfectly. Playing a game can be done (just as I sometimes play a game when it's on my desk). Controlling your music is no problem whatsoever. Just no usage where you have to pick up the phone.

Use it regularly while it sits in my Qi Samsung car cradle.

I use wireless charger almost exclusively in the last 3-4 years, and I place it in charger whenever I didn't use it, so it's cool for me

Design is very nice. Wish they would have went with a foldable stand design.

Looks too bulky and the sensor area seems very small needing tight alignment.
