Incipio Ghost 220 Qi Wireless Charging Base

Wireless payments have arrived and some are wondering when charging their smartphone sans cables will be the norm. For now, wireless charging is being dominated by the Qi standard and thankfully that technology is being included in many Android and Windows Phone smartphones, cases and external battery packs.

One such offGRID battery pack from Incipio, that comes with 4,000 mAh of backup power, charges wirelessly. Their Ghost 220 Qi charging pad is capable of charging the previously mentioned backup battery and any Qi enabled device simultaneously.

As one of the best designed Qi enabled power banks I have seen or used, Incipio was able to keep the same form factor from their other battery with an equal amount of internal battery capacity. This marvel of form and function at $69.99 is totally worth it.

The battery is small and it packs a 2.1A punch from its singular full sized USB port. That is enough power to charge high drain devices like tablets and phablets. That type of power will also charge smartphones at a faster rate. It will give typical smartphones one and a half to two full charges.

You can say goodbye to the days of wall-hugging at airports, train or bus stations. This battery is so small, it easily fit in my back pocket while traveling in airport terminals during testing.

The offGRID 4,000 mAh battery came with a microUSB cable for charging, but it is also compatible with Incipio’s Ghost 220 $79.99 Qi wireless dual charging pad. They have you covered if you do not have a Qi enabled device. There is a full size USB charging port on the back of the charging pad.

Most companies that offer USB wall chargers only have 1A of output power. The Ghost 220 supplies two Qi charging zones and a 2.4A USB port. That is enough power to charge the newest tablets at what Incipio calls, “maximum charging efficiency.”

Final Verdict

Incipio has created some of the most innovative and design forward wireless Qi charging products for smartphones and tablets on the market. Their quality offGRID backup battery is small enough to keep a smartphone charged multiple times over and faster than others with its 2.1A power punch. The double Qi enabled Ghost 220 keeps multiple devices charged and pesky cables away. Both gadgets worked well together along with some of the other Incipio Qi products available.
