Nexus Wireless Charger

Google started selling the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) through their Play Store in India and Hong Kong few hours back. It has also started selling the Nexus Wireless Charger in the US and Canada. It is compatible with the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the latest Nexus 7 tablet, since all these have Wireless charging based on Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) ’s Qi standard, the global standard for wireless power. Looks like Google has stopped selling the Google Nexus 4 Wireless Charger released earlier this year.

Since the Nexus Wireless Charger is larger, it is suitable for the new Nexus 7 that supports wireless charging. Since it also has a magnetic face, it holds the tablet in face. It also adheres securely to any surface. It comes with a 9W 1.8A AC Adaptor and a micro USB cable that connects the adaptor to the charger. It weighs 105 grams, lighter than the Nexus 4 Wireless Charger.

The Nexus Wireless Charger comes in Black color and is priced at $49.99 (~Rs. 3120) . It is available from the Play Store in the U.S. and Canada. It is not clear when we can expect it to go on sale in other markets such as India.
