How does QIMINI charger work?

What can I do with my Qimini Pocket?

Qimini Pocket is a wireless charger. You can charge your mobile device wirelessly simply by placing it on top of the surface.

Which device does it work with?

Qimini Pocket is supported by Qi technology. It works like magic with any Qi-enabled devices.

Is my phone Qi compatible or Qi-enabled?

Either your phone comes embedded with the Qi technology or you can make it Qi-enabled with an adapted case. To find out if your device is Qi compatible or if it can be upgraded to one, please refer to this compatibility guide.

Is it safe to use any Qi charger?

As demand surges, only Qi Certified wireless charging products can deliver a safe and reliable wireless charging experience.

Look for Qi Certified and Qi logo. The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) is the standards organization responsible for developing and managing the Qi standard. Learn more

What if my phone is not compatible with Qi wireless charging?

There are two components that make it work - 1) a charger that transmits power to the phone; and a receiver that collects the power and charges the battery.

Qimini will need to add a Qi receiver sleeve or a case to your phone to make it work.

I have a case on my phone, does it interfere with my phone’s wireless charging capabilities?

Using a case on your phone shouldn’t interfere with its wireless charging capabilities. In fact, to make your phone wireless charging compatible, we even recommend that you use a case to hold the receiver in place (and using protection is always good). However, if you are using a case drenched in gemstones, or in the shape of a teddy bear; as much as we encourage personal creativity, we can’t guarantee that these cases will always work. Wireless charging works best with slim, flexible cases so that the transmitter and receiver can connect easily.

Can I charge while navigating the phone?

Yes, but not recommended.

Does Qimini Pocket have a "beep" when the phone is on the top or it will only be indicated by the LED light?

The charging status is only indicated with an LED and no sound will be emitted from Qimini. We do not want to wake you up in the middle of the night when the charge status changes.

What color is your QIMINI light?

The steady green light indicates QIMINI is charging your phone.

If the light is blinking green, QIMINI is charging your phone slowly; it is not getting enough power from the USB port. Connect your QIMINI to a USB power source that can provide at least 2A current.

If the light is solid red, check that the device properly placed at the centre of the QIMINI. Make sure the top of QIMINI is clear of any other object (paper clip, coin).

If I use a laptop, the output I get from the USB port will only be 500mA, so, I can only charge the phone at 500mA even though the output power of Qimini Pocket is up to 1A?

The USB standard specify that USB ports should provide 500mAh but these specifications were written more than 10 years ago. Nowadays, USB ports can easily provide 1A and most of the time even more. Qimini Pocket maximizes its charging current, so with a laptop, you should easily be able to charge at 1A. Qimini Pocket can also works with 500mA limited ports. Most of the time, you'll charge your phone as fast as a cable, minus the cable!

Is there by any chance a battery inside the unit?

Not for now.

Where do you ship to?

We'll ship your Qimini Pocket wherever you are. All shipping costs are indicated on the buy page, just select your country and find out.

When will Qimini Pocket will be available in other colors?

All in good times. We are on it.
