Congratulations to Stephanie J. of La Vergne, Tenn., for winning a Braven Lux portable Bluetooth speaker in last week's giveaway. This week we have another gadget for the mobile lifestyle -- a QiStone+ portable wireless charger from Fonesalesman, a UK company's that's expanding its US presence.
The grippy little stone-shaped gadget uses the Qi charging standard to charge Qi-compatible gadgets such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge ; Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 7; and Nokia Lumia 830 and 930 .
For devices that aren't set up for wireless charging, an included iQi receiver will do the trick.
The QiStone+ contains a 4,000mAh battery, which itself can be charged via Micro-USB (or wirelessly, if you happen to have another Qi-based charger lying around). It can also be used as a power bank to charge any USB device. The palm-size QiStone+ weighs just under 5 ounces and measures about 5 inches by 2.8 inches by less than an inch.
So what do you have to do to win a QiStone+ and iQi receiver worth a total of around $100? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
