Mophie Wireless Charging Suite
Our digital world has rapidly gone wireless before our eyes, ushering in a new era of our mobility. To keep up, shedding wires on everything from phones to computers to headphones has been all but necessary, and the next step is wireless charging.
The charge stream wireless suite from mophie lets you conveniently charge your device wherever you go. Optimized for both Apple and Samsung Qi-compatible wireless smartphones, each of mophie’s charge stream tools transfers power inductively across a magnetic field between a coiled wire inside the Qi-enabled device and one inside the wireless charging accessory. The mophie charge stream products ensure you always have access to easy, fast wireless charging anywhere: at home, the office, in the car, out with friends or even traveling.
