Frequently Asked Questions About the Power Idolz Back to the Future Wireless Charger
This charger is a fast charging Qi charger which means that your phone or mobile device must be Qi enabled. If it is, then you will have no problem charging on this stand regardless of your phone being an iPhone or Android.
When you plug in the Back to the Future wireless charger via the included USB cable, a blue LED light will illuminate blue around the base. Simply place your phone on the holder above, and within a couple of seconds, your phone should indicate that it’s charging.
While charging, the lighted base will also change from blue to a yellow-orange color.
If the base of the Back to the Future wireless charger flashes and blinks blue when you add your phone to the holder, it means that there is a problem with the connection and the phone isn’t charging.
This may happen if there is some type of metal or plastic obstruction in the way or if your phone is not Qi compatible with the charger.
Our Overall Ratings of the Back to the Future Wireless Charger
This wireless charger is perfect for geeks, movie buffs, and lovers of the classic 80’s trilogy. The VHS tape is a wonderful added touch, and in an instant, people can recognize that’s Marty McFly!
The actual Qi charger may not be the fastest phone charging device in your house, and I might like to see the hoverboard from BttF 2, but it’s hard to really ding this display piece for much. It’s a really cool display item that also functions to charge your most used piece of technology!
The Back to the Future phone holder and Qi charger is perfect for anyone looking to add some retro movie love to their home. While you definitely won’t need 1.21 gigawatts (or jigowatts if you’re a real movie buff) of electricity to power this, that’s probably a good thing. I imagine a bolt of lightning would fry your phone!
Marty would definitely kick back in 2015 charging his phone and reading Grays Sports Almanac.
