    Updated to include battery-charging figures below. Samsung’s official Galaxy S III wireless charging kit was announced alongside that 2012 flagship, but it didn’t arrive on the market until long after - and many regions are still waiting to get their hands on it. This year, Samsung appears committed to avoiding a similar situation with the new Galaxy S 4: the company has just sent us a sample Galaxy S4 wireless charger for review, and we've spent a couple days getting to know it. Because we haven't given it the usual weeks-long review treatment -and because accessory reviews are the ...

    The wireless charging space has its nondescript plates, its chopped-in-half spheres, and its invisibly integrated landing zones - but what it's lacking in most cases is a sense of style. With its new Qi-enabled wireless charging dock, accessory maker TYLT looks to shake up that status quo somewhat, and the company was kind enough to send us our very own TYLT Vu for a quick look. This isn't a review per se, as the Vu is not yet in full production and we haven't used it long enough to render a solid opinion or to shake out any bugs (if any exist). Rather, this is a quick, hands-on snapshot ...

    Rarely has the "lull" between trade shows given us so much to talk about. We kicked off the week with an exciting announcement welcoming two new members to the Pocketnow team, and since then we've barely been able to keep news, editorials, and videos on the front page long enough to read them. This feed is on fire. From ever-strengthening rumors about the HTC M7 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, to interviews with newcomers like Jolla, to new looks at old friends with BlackBerry 10, to modding and jailbreaking today's top smartphones, we've gotten a lot done since the last episode of the Weekly, ...

    After almost a solid year of keeping its customers waiting, it looks like Samsung is finally gearing up for a North American release of the wireless charging product it promised way back at the Galaxy S III announcement. That's a good thing, and we're eagerly awaiting some hands-on time with the official inductive-charging pad ... but we're not exactly the patient sort. Fortunately, the popularity of the Galaxy S III, combined with an abundance of old Palm charging accessories, means a wide array of mods are available that allow users to bring inductive charging to their Samsung ...

    We've been taunted and teased with the dream of inductive charging for years, and now it's finally here! Well, it's here for some of us. After more than a few competing standards have been quietly battling it out, the Qi (pronounced "chee") standard seems to be the one that is going to be here to stay. In the early days if you wanted to inductively charge your device you needed to either buy a replacement battery and door with the technology built-in, or a "backpack"-style case that included the necessary induction coil and circuitry to enable chargers to replenish the battery inside your ...

    We've talked about wireless charging in the past and have wondered why it's not more popular. One of the reasons could be the relative scarcity of inductive chargers, another reason is the confusing variety of wireless chargers and varying standards on the market today. We've been hearing about inductive charging for our phones a few years ago, and even saw the charger that we'll go hands-on with today back in September 2010! Now it's time to put the talk behind us and go hands-on with the Energizer Single Inductive Charger. Energizer makes a pair of Qi (pronounced "chee") compatible ...
