Qimini available to order in black, listed for $79.95
The Qimini is now available to order. Available in black for the time being (more colours on the way), the wireless charger supports smartphones that utilise the Qi standard of charging. This includes a handful of Lumia Windows Phones (and a lone Verizon HTC 8x). We last looked at the product back in February and noted that while consumers were able to place orders, pricing was not listed at the time.
Tektos, the company behind the Qimini, has created something special for those who enjoy travelling and / or use laptops. Instead of carrying around a bulky charger, the Qimini is a slim, sleek and portable wireless charger that plugs into a USB port and provides juice for any device requiring some energy.
If you're interested in the product, be sure to head on over to the Qimini website to place an order. Note that only black is available at this time, with other colours coming soon. Price is $79.95.

Its pricy no doubt. I could afford it but if there are less expensive alternatives in the market, I get to those first.
Edit: I didn't notice the jockstrap the iphone was in to make wireless charging work. Carry on.
It seems a lot if it's just a standard charger with a USB port instead of a power cord.
Er... so does the phone, directly. What's the point of plugging a wireless charger into a USB port rather than just plugging the phone in instead, using a far more portable single cable?
