Wirelessly charge your phone, while making that video call
Bangalore, November 4 2019: In this business of computing accessories, we have seen some strange combos -- but a portable mouse pad that is also a wireless charger. That is a new one on us! William Penn best known as distributors of premium writing instruments have brought the Pennline Deskmo wireless charging mousepad to India.
In its core function this is a leather covered lightweight mouse pad for laptop users who are not comfortable with the built-in track-pad. The pad has a hinged upright portion resting on a magnetic stand that is the real deal breaker for this device. Encased with dual inductive coils, it functions as a wireless charger for your phone which can lean on it any way you like, upright or sideways. Most high end phones are ready for wireless charging. If yours is an older or cheaper model, you can still exploit the charging feature by buying separately and pasting a Qi charging receiver on the back of your phone.
The Deskmo offers a 10 Watt charger so it will make short shrift of the charging time for most phones. And yes, the phone's position is convenient to make a video call, while it is charging -- a bonus feature of this cool tool that is available for Rs 2200 from the Williampenn.net site.
