I hate wires. No, really, I hate wires. I was one of the first people I knew to get WiFi in my house, I’ve never had a landline, and I used to joke that I cut the cable cord out of principle alone.
All of this said, it’s no surprise that I’m big on wireless charging. I’ve got a Tylt VÜ at work, an official Nexus wireless charger (with magnets!) on my nightstand, and a DiGiYes dual-spot wireless charger in my living room. Now, with the iOttie Easy Flex Wireless Qi Standard Charging Car Mount, I’ve got wireless charging in my car, too.
We first saw the Easy Flex Qi, as I’ve come to call it, and do remember that Qi is pronounced “chee”, at CES 2014, where it won a coveted CEA Innovations Award for its fantastic design and functionality. We’re glad to finally get our hands on one to see how it fairs under review. iOttie isn’t new to me, as I’ve owned a couple of iOttie Easy Flex 2 car mounts for years and adore them for how ridiculously strong the combination of the suction cup and sticky goo is.
