ENERGIZER® Introduces New Inductive Charger
Leads the way with one of the first universal Qi (pronounce “chee”) technology products to market
“The Energizer® Inductive Charger will be introduced with a Qi Sleeve for the iPhone® 3GS/3G and a one-time replacement Qi Door for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900, so consumers can enjoy the convenience of Qi right away. Soon, consumers can expect to have Qi built right into many of their devices.
“As one of the first to market with a Qi device, we want to make it easy for consumers to experience how easy and convenient it is to charge their devices using this new universal standard,” added Olsen. “We focused on accessories for popular smartphones, but anticipate that it will not be long before manufacturers roll-out devices with Qi built right in.”
The Energizer® Inductive Charger will be available at retail this November
. Suggested retail price is $89. The removable Qi sleeve for the iPhone® 3GS/3G and the Qi door for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 will be sold separately for $34.99 each.

Energizer is a well known brand in the technology field and I would bet this is going to be an awesome product. As you I’ve mentioned a few times before I’m a tech geek/junkie and am always looking for the greatest and lastest. This my friends is the new charging system of the future.
The future is Qi-enabled
“Inductive charging with Qi is the simple way to charge today, but it will get even easier in the future. Right now, all you have to do is make sure your device is Qi-enabled and set it on a Qi inductive charger. But in the future, you won’t even have to put a Qi-enabled accessory on your device because Qi will already be built into many devices. As the future standard, it won’t be long until members of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) put Qi directly into their phones, cameras, mp3 players and every other device that requires up to 5W of power.
There’s no doubt that Qi is the future. It might start slowly at first as Qi is built into a phone here or a camera there. But with the steady growth of the WPC, it’s sure to snowball. When that happens, 5W devices with Qi wireless charging capabilities will be everywhere. And they’ll all work with the Energizer® Inductive Charger. It may be a few years off, but one day we’ll see Qi stations all around us—offices, hotels, coffee shops and even airline tray tables. It will be incredible because you’ll never be without power.
Inductive charging is already starting to bring about the end of cords. Qi will mean the end of sleeves and doors.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Below are all the Qi-enabled devices that aren’t made by Energizer®, but because they have Qi, they all will work with the Energizer® Inductive Charger.”
