TYLT Vu Qi Wireless Charger Review

TYLT Vu Qi Wireless Charger Side View

The TYLT Vu Qi Wireless Charger (via Amazon) is one of the more interesting chargers you will find with its unique shape and bright colors.  Initially I almost skipped over it because I thought it was too flashy and didn't seem like a serious option.  Eventually I took the plunge and grabbed it regardless of the slightly more expensive price and I'm pretty happy that I did. … [Read more...]
