Although released by Microsoft, the Nokia-branded Nokia Wireless Charging Plate is the latest Lumia-ready accessory for select phones.
Alert through a light
It glows when your phone needs a battery top-up, or receives an alert from apps you care about.
Tap to pair
NFC pairing is a snap when you tap the phone to the unit to connect the two. From there, Bluetooth takes over the linkup.
The charging plate is about the same shape as an Apple Magic Mouse, but large enough to hold a 5-inch phone.
A long cable and USB plug means you can position the unit the way you want to get that cable out of view. You'll need to plug it into another power source to get the charge going.
Lit from below
How does the Charging Plate get its glow? From a ring of lights positioned on the unit's underside. (The green ring lights up; this unit also comes in white and orange.)
Less than half an inch thick, the unit still rises above the surface to let out the light.
