How does QI Charging Lamp Work?
The sleek, stylish and wider round design of the Wasserstein QI charging lamps is simply lovable. These lamps bear the stamp of quality and offer a solid feel at the base and matte surface at the bottom. The lamp comes as ready to use and the user only needs to plug it into the power socket.
Wasserstein lamp is equipped with a flexible arm allowing rotation within a certain limit. The arm at the base offers a screw that needs be tightened to fix the position. Unlike many other desks lamps the flexible arm can maintain rigid position without bending frequently as happens commonly with cheap lamps.
The lamp base has the power button used for turning the lights on. The lamp base is also equipped with 5 little touch-enabled buttons to adjust the intensity level of the light. The top level is too much bright and in most of the times you need not switch to that level. The lamp base also offers a tiny pointed light that automatically glows red as soon as the lamp is plugged into the electric socket in the wall.
The Charging Feature
Wireless charging is the principal feature of the Wasserstein QI charging lamp. The charging pad built into the lamp base offers nothing spectacular but a regular wireless charging pad. The only tradeoff is that being built-in inside the lamp base it saves enough desk space compared to other wireless charging pads. With a bigger stylish desk lamp accompanying the wireless charging pad, the product seems quite interesting. The charging power offered by the pad of the lamp is the common 5W / 1A type. With this type of charging a two and a half hours of charge is needed to fully charge a device.
