Tesla released wireless charging for smartphones: Thanks to electric cars and the charismatic Ilona Mask, Tesla earns well on the brand. Such an asset should not vanish, and the company understands this. To earn on the image, Tesla launched the line “Lifestyle” with useful and not so many things: T-shirts, blouses, thermos and even children’s Model S. Now this list has been replenished with Powerbank for 6000 mAh with the function of wireless charging.
This battery is designed according to the same design principles as the Powerwall (a large battery for household users). The case is built-in USB-C, and you can not remove it. This may seem inconvenient since not all smartphones have a new-fashioned port, so the manufacturer added the usual USB input for connecting such devices. The maximum charge power without wires is 5 watts, and through a normal connection – 7.5 watts.
The battery is sold in two colours: black and white. It costs $ 65, and for this money, it is not the most profitable purchase. For example, a battery from Xiaomi with a capacity of 20,000 mAh and a power of 12 W can be bought 3 times cheaper, but it does not support wireless charging. If you really need Qi technology, then for $ 50 there is a RAVPower of 20,000 mAh and a power rating of 10 watts.
However, people buy such products without looking at the price or specifications. The main thing is that there is a Tesla logo on the case, and it looks very nice. This is a good choice for the fans of the brand, but no more.
