Greg Fackrell from Air Dock has created an Indiegogo campaign for a wireless car charger he has developed.  You can also safely view your phone to use navigation or easily play your favorite music.  The Air Dock is a mount which holds onto any smooth surface, such as your windshield, with a strong suction and has an innovative adhesive that will grip your phone strongly but will not leave any adhesive residue.  You will need to make your phone wireless charging compatible and will need to make sure that you have a smooth back surface so it will stick to the charging pad correctly.

Compatible phones:

  • Nexus 4 & 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4
  • Samsung Note 2 & 3
  • LG G2 (Verizon version only)
  • iPhone 4 & 5

With after-market hardware, you can make your Samsung Galaxy, Note, or iPhone devices wireless charging compatible.

 

1. Wireless charging kit: You place the kit right in between your device battery and the back cover.  An advantage of this option is that it will not add any thickness to your device.  This will work for Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4, and Note 2 & 3.

2. Replacement back cover: You can purchase a Samsung brand replacement back cover which comes with wireless charging capability.  The downfall of using the replacement back cover is that it will add thickness to your phone making it difficult to fit it into hard cases.  This option will work for the Galaxy S4 and Verizon versions of the S3.

3. Wireless charging capable phone case: For the iPhone, you have the option of buying a compatible phone case.  Built directly into the case is the wireless charging hardware, it plugs into your phone’s power port making it easy to charge on the go.  Another benefit is that your iPhone will also be protected because it has a case on it to keep it safe.

With just about a month left, you can still contribute and receive the Early Bird Perk.  For $45 you will receive the Air Dock one month after funding.  If you want to purchase the additional wireless charging hardware, add $25 for iPhone and for Samsung add $20.  You must specify which device for either option so that he can send the correct hardware.
