The worst feeling is having a phone on low battery when you need it the most but also knowing that you could've charged it earlier.
Trying to get home on a late night out, I pulled out my phone to call an Uber only to see it was on 1%. I knew this would be the end of me.
Needless to say, the Uber couldn't locate me and I had to find some other way home. I thought to myself: "I was at my desk the whole day, why didn't I just charge my phone"
Well after taking a few trains and a bus, I made it home. I knew what my desk setup was missing. It was a wireless charger that I could use on and off. Getting one should be easy, at least that's what I thought.
I did find heaps on amazon, but the aesthetics wasn't quite right. I eventually found something that was good enough, it wasn't cheap though.
It arrived, but after plugging it in was in dreadfully disappointed. It took an hour to charge 5%, I later learnt, it was a 5W Wireless charger using ancient wireless charging technology.
So that's how it started - I was commited to designing a wireless charger that looked good, but also performed charged as fast as practicably possible.
