Although released by Microsoft, the Nokia-branded Nokia Wireless Charging Plate is the latest Lumia-ready accessory for select phones.
It glows when your phone needs a battery top-up, or receives an alert from apps you care about.
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.
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.
Sadly, there are only two Lumia phones that work with the Wireless Charging Plate right now: the Lumia 930 and the 830. Future releases should work as well. Read the full review for more details!
