With the help of UMIDIGI Q1, the UMIDIGI Z2 Pro with its 3550mAh battery capacity can be fully charged within 100 minutes. That’s really quick for wireless charging, while with 18W fast wired (USB type-C) charging, the Z2 Pro needs only 70 minutes to get fully charged.
Additionally the Q1 can even be used as a cosmetic mirror, which is what makes this gadget so fashionable. How would that work? Well, let’s check out the unboxing video from UMIDIGI to learn more.
The UMIDIGI Q1 wireless fast charger utilizes the popular Qi wireless charging standard, and it offers four wireless charging modes: 5W normal charging mode, 7.5W, 10W and up to 15W fast wireless charging mode for UMIDIGI Z2 Pro. The UMIDIGI Q1 works with other phones as well such as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, the Galaxy S series, Xiaomi Mix 2S and so on.
As we saw in the video, the front panel is covered with a 2.5D glass surface, which allows you to use it as a cosmetic mirror, if you really don’t have any alternatives around. The rest of the Q1 is made of aircraft grade aluminum, something we aren’t accustomed to; other brands do indeed prefer cheaper looking and feeling plastic for this kind of device. The material used and the unibody design does, of course, make the Q1 much more durable as well. Finally, on the bottom side there are three rubber pads mounted to ensure a slip free stand.
UMIDIGI’s Q1 has a diameter of 100mm and thickness of 5mm. It is really slim when compared with other wireless chargers.
