Those of us who can enjoy the benefits of Qi wireless charging know the beauty that is never having to use a cable to charge our devices. It may seem like a lazy thing to say, but it really changes your experience. Leave a wireless charger at the office and one next to bed, and you never have to worry about “plugging in” your phone again.
It’s not only saving you precious minutes, but it makes it seem like you are not even charging your phone. It’s simply sitting there and you can pick it up any time. Not to mention, it saves your microUSB port from the usual wear and tear that plugging in a device usually introduces.
You can learn all about our favorite wireless chargers in our dedicated post. Today we are focusing on the LuguLake wireless charger. Can it make it to the list of favorites? Let’s see!
Design and build quality
Let’s start by telling you this charger looks and feels amazing. It is literally the best wireless charger I have used, in terms of aesthetics and build quality.
The LuguLake wireless charger is made of aluminum, with an acrylic surface. This makes it a very solid and slim product. It’s likely to resist a drop or two, though I wouldn’t (and haven’t) put that to the test.
It has no buttons. It also has the benefit of being super slim, which, along with the round shape, helps it blend into any environment seamlessly. Not many wireless chargers look good, and I can say with confidence that this one actually does.
Ultimately, this is simply a charger. It has one and only one job – to charge a phone. With that said, we had to put it to the test and see how well it performs.
LuguLake touts the device’s triple coil set-up, which is said to widen the charging area and speed up the charging process. Does it work well? Is it a fast charger? We have put it against a couple very popular chargers to offer a good comparison. These would be the Tylt Vu and the Nokia DT900 wireless chargers.
We tested charging times with a Motorola Droid Turbo, all starting from 5% and charging all the way up to 100%. Here are our results:
- Tylt Vu: 4:42 hours
- Nokia DT900: 4:16 hours
- LuguLake: 5:31 hours
As you can see, the LuguLake charger did take a bit more. This was using a 2.1A charger, which is what the company recommended for use with this charger. Maybe getting a stronger one would mean faster charges, but those chargers are a bit hard to come by.
By the way, the LuguLake charger doesn’t actually come with a power adapter, so you should factor that into the equation. And get a strong charger if you are looking to get one specifically for this wireless charger.
This charger may be relatively slower, but it still does a good job at charging your device. I mean, taking your device from 5% to a 100% in about 5.5 hours is not really bad. Especially if this will be your bedside charger. You will sleep more than that.
I have to say the looks and build quality are worth that small sacrifice, and this charger happens to be very inexpensive. It’s currently priced at $32.99 on Amazon.
