We've looked at the Galaxy S4 case and charging stand, the magnetic cable and more, so here's the next instalment - the magnetic charging pad. This product also provides a 360-degree magnetic wireless charging capability rated at 99.5% of the speed of a direct micro-USB connection.
You've already received a charging stand bundled with the Patriot FUEL iON case, so why buy the charging pad? Read on to find out our thoughts on the matter.
Compatible with any of Patriot's FUEL iON series charging cases, this charging pad sits flat on your bedside table, dresser, kitchen bench, or computer table.
Thanks to the magnetic connection, this device will be able to charge your phone at any angle within a 360 degree spectrum, as long as a connection is continued. This means that you'll remove any niggling issues of a micro-USB cable hanging out the bottom of your phone. The device itself is provided power through a micro-USB connection and there aren't any listed limitations to charging speed. You can assume that it's the same as the dock, allowing whatever you put into it to be transferred to the device.
Pricing & Availability
Setting you back $29.99 plus shipping from Amazon, this product is the cheapest of the bunch so far, but still a little pricey. I understand we're paying for the research and development here alongside a little for the brand name, but every accessory adds more money to the investment and makes it a little harder to justify.
What's in the box?
There's the charging pad and there's the cable - that's it.
The included USB cable is of adequate length, but it can always be longer. It's also quite thick, around 1mm thicker than every other cable I've used and something that's a common trend in this FUEL iON series.
