Holiday Gift Idea: Energizer Inductive Charger (Giveaway!)

For many of us, the holiday season can make you feel like you belong in an insane asylum. ;) There's the church pageants, school and work parties, gifts to give and receive, places to be - and most of us won't breathe a sigh of relief until January 2nd. ;)

Your cameras, laptops, iPhones, toys etc will be in high demand too, right? Now my new camera doesn't take rechargeable AA's like the old one did, but we seem to be accumulating more and more toys that use batteries, so my battery charger gets a work out. It only charges AA's though, and we obviously need to upgrade to a new one - fast, before I go anymore insane when gifts arrive from the in-laws. (I swear my MIL picks out talking toys just to irritate me... lol) Every night there's a pile of things on our charge strip, from our phones to the laptop, the camera, etc - we actually had to place the strip along the floor, because we were running out of room on the counter, lol.

Hot off the press, Energizer has just hit the market with their new Energizer Inductive Charger. It's the gift every parent wants to see under the tree - seriously - because it charges any new device that contains Qi (pronounced ‘’chee’’) 5W or less on a single charging station, regardless of manufacturer. Yes, all your (new) smartphones, MP3 players, cameras, etc can be charged on this! No more searching for chargers, no more stocking up on several different kinds of chargers for the same product, no more stumbling to plug in during the middle of the night in a panicked state because you forget to charge. ;)


Qi is advanced technology - it's actually the new universal standard for inductive charging. The Energizer Inductive Charger is designed to work with Qi-enabled devices, whether Qi is built into the device or the device has a Qi accessory. It features two large charging zones that don’t require locking the device into a precise position, so you’ll be sure to have your phone charged and ready to go when you need it even if you just toss it down when you come in the door. It also features a USB port to meet additional charging needs. The suggested retail price seems a little steep at first - $89.00, but it does charge several devices at once, and for convenience, I'm not sure it can be beat. Plus, you only have to purchase one charger, and it will work for years to come - in my house, I'm pretty sure it will outlast the phones the way we are going. lol

There are also sleeves for several different (older) phones that can be purchased that have the Qi technology already built in, so they will work with this new device.

Win it! The folks over at Energizer are offering one reader a $25 gift card that they could use towards the purchase of a Qi! To enter, tell us if this solves a need for you, and which items you think you'll be charging the most on a Qi.

As always, you can receive extra entries for:

-Subscribing to my feed OR publicly following my blog
-Blogging about this giveaway with a link back
-Tweeting about this giveaway 1X (leave the link in your comment below or @psychotichouse) example:
Win a GC Thx to Energizer http://goo.gl/fb/nWBio ends 11/27 @psychotichouse

That's four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends November 27th at 11:59 PM PST, and please leave your email address in your entry or have it available in your profile. US only, sorry :( Good luck everyone!! :)

I didn't receive anything for this post, but one reader will win the prize stated above, as fulfilled by the giveaway sponsor.

Thanks for the giveaway...a Qi (Energizer Inductive Charger) could certainly solve our current charging situation: a section of our kitchen counter is a tangle of chargers/charger cords for several iPods, an iPhone, a blackBerry, and a few Nokia cell phones as well...not a very efficient use of space.
