The Edge+ is Motorola's first flagship phone to have wireless charging. Now, a matching accessory from this brand is available on the US market. It can charge the Edge+ at 15 watts (W) and boasts the "thermal management" necessary to do so safely.

Motorola has elected to make a comeback to the flagship phone arena in 2020 with the Edge+. The brand has also jumped on several of the bandwagons associated with this device tier in so doing, wireless charging support included. To this end, it has also announced an accessory for fans who want to power their new phones in a fully-branded manner.

These consumers will get a rate of 15W out of this Motorola TurboPower wireless pad, which, as the company points out, exceeds that of standard Qi wireless charging by a good bit. It also apparently dissipates heat while charging in a fan-independent manner, with a breathing LED light to indicate operability and correct device placement. Then again, it is potentially outshone by some other in-house cable-less standards that have been developed for this year. 

The Motorola alternative - made by a brand-partner called Salom Limited - costs US$59.99 and will be shipped from May 14, 2020 on Amazon.com. By contrast, the 30W Warp Wireless Charger made by OnePlus costs $69.99 and is available now. Then again, the "TurboPower" does come with a generous 6.6-foot (~2-meter) USB type C to type C cable and the same 27W power brick that comes in the box with the Edge+.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
