Does this charger have any LEDs 17 Jun 2014
Yes, it has a low powered red light for when it's not charging and a green one when it is. They are on the lower top third of the upper flat charging surface. I use mine to charge my Nexus 5 phone and can either have them covered or uncovered by the phone. If you are charging a larger item, like the Nexus 7 then you can't see them at all, although you can lift the tablet up slightly to see if the green light is on for charging. I do not use it by my bed so haven't noticed if the light would disturb me but as I said they are quite dim and you could either cover it with your phone or a small piece of cloth (handkerchief) or cardboard. I have found it an excellent charger and would recommend it.
Hi therei use it all the time for power and its so convenient. Never use the the USB port any more.
what is Qi 6 Jul 2014
Qi, pronounced "chee", comes from the Chinese symbol meaning energy flow and is designed to provide energy to devices through magnetic induction. This is a similar solution to the system that charges electric toothbrushes. (It's also a valuable and legal two-letter word in Scrabble.) In simple terms, the base station includes an induction coil that creates an alternating electromagnetic field. Meanwhile, a similar coil within the device is able to pick up this field, convert the energy into current and use it to charge the battery.
Does this charger make any noise (Beeps?) when the phone is placed on it? I plan to use it in a quiet office. 24 Apr 2014
The charger itself makes no beeps however your device may (my nexus does)
Should lights be blue or green when charging? can only get red or blue and it isnt charging 2 Dec 2014
Blue means charging. Make sure you have a decent power supply, one that can deliver current at the full 2 Amps. Some are not up to the job.
Has this been tried and tested with the Nexus6? I've pre-ordered one and would like to order a couple of these but I need to make sure that they work 21 Nov 2014
I've had now problem with mine, I use mine all the time.
Does this one have a strong magnet in it like the official Google QI charger (that I'd otherwise buy if I could) for vertical orientation of charging? 18 Jun 2015
Probably not! I find that with my nexus 5 if I don't line it up perfectly then it won't charge. I've woken up several time to find my phone didn't charge overnight because it was maybe an inch out.... When charging my nexus 7 I need to remove the case to ensure I get a charge...... To be honest I just plug everything in directly. I wish I had bought a better one 😟
Hi i have just received Expower R and tried to power up but no lights show and neither my Nexus 7 nor my iphone 6x show charging is it faulty or is i 25 Feb 2015
Firstly, your iPhone 6+ won't charge as it doesn't have NFC charging. No current Apple product has that. If there are no lights showing on your Expower then it's likely it's faulty. You should see a flickering between different colour lights when you plug in the charger to the power and then it should show red and then occasionally rapidly flicker between red, green and blue. If it isn't doing that, check your USB cable, the mains converter for the USB and the pad. If the charger and cable work then it's a faulty Expower
