Magnetyze Cordless Charger Now in Car and Travel Versions
You know about Magnetyze, right? It’s a system that lets you charge an iPhone 4/S or Galaxy S3 without the need for a cord. Pop your iPhone into the provided case, then drop the case on the magnetic charging base and your iPhone will charge (and sync) — it works kind of like the MagSafe power adapter on a MacBook. It’s really cool on the S3, because the Magnetyze case replaces the S3’s original back, so there’s almost zero extra bulk. Neat.
The car charger looks the most intriguing, because it both acts as a dash mount and a charger; no more cords getting in the way of the shifter or dash. The travel charger also includes an extra USB port for a second phone.
Both of the new gadgets are available for pre-order right now, with no clear delivery date. The Magnetyze AC Wall Charger (that’s the travel charger) is $45, while the Magnetyze Car Charging Stand is $55.
The main Magnetyze system (required for the accessories) for the iPhone is $70 or, if you want a backup battery in the case, $100. The Galaxy S3 model also comes in to versions: $80 with the ability to sync as well as charge, $70 for just charging.
