Review: Nokia Wireless Charger stand by Gibbage

Many will remember the name Gibbage from the 3D printed cases the designer offers for various Windows Phones. Well, Kevin "Gibbage" Miller hasn't put away his three-dimensional drawing board just yet and has come out with a stand for the Nokia DT-900 wireless charger.

As with the Gibbage cases, the stand is printed by and comes in a variety of colors. The plastic construction feels solid with just a bit of flex to allow for easy placement and removal of the charger.

If you're looking to convert your DT-900 into a night stand or just have grown tired of your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone laying flat, the Gibbage stand is worth a look.

There's really not much to the Gibbage stand. It's skeleton design has a base pad to support your Windows Phone while it is on the charger, two side clips that wrap around the edges of the DT-900 to hold it in place and a few clips to keep your power cord out of the way.

The DT-900 sits nicely in the stand with the power cord connecting up top. The power cord does stick up a bit but the design really doesn't allow for the power connection to be placed at the bottom.  It may stick out like a sore thumb at first but it doesn't get in the way and when your Windows Phone is on the charger, you can barely notice it.

The base of the stand sticks out about a half inch to provide support for the Windows Phone.  There's a slight lip to this base which helps keep the Windows Phone in place nicely.  In using the stand with the Lumia 920, it works like a charm. In using the stand with the Lumia 1020, it works like a charm as well but the Lumia 1020 (with charging cover) is a little temperamental.

But that's the case with the DT-900 charger laying flat as well. I found that if you set the Lumia 1020 on the base of the stand and lean it back on to the charger, that wireless connection clicks a little better (really wish the 1020 has wireless charging built in).

All totaled, I like the Gibbage wireless charging stand. With the Glance screen on our Windows Phones, it's a simple way to charge your Nokia Lumia and have it double as a desktop or night stand clock.

Color options include white, black, coral red, hot pink, royal blue and violet purple. Prices range from $30 to slightly over $35. You can find all the ordering information here at the Gibbage Shapeway website.
