ZENS Qi Wireless Car Charger review: spruce up your car’s cup holder

Advertisement

Of all the places wireless charging can actually be useful, we can’t think of a better place than in the car. Messing with wires in the car can be tricky and, of course, dangerous.

The ability to drop your phone in a slot and have it charge sounds awesome, right?

Fortunately, that’s not fiction. It’s possible, thanks to the ZENS Qi Wireless Car Charger. Simply plug the the cup-shaped charger’s power adapter into the 12V socket in your car, drop the charger in the cup holder, and toss a Qi-enabled smartphone into the slot on the top. The device plays a subtle chirp, and your phone charges. Easy peasy.

Just note, the convenience of wireless charging in-car comes at a pretty steep cost. This specific charger from ZENS will set you back $91.69. Is it worth the high buy-in price? Does it work as intended?
