Review: CANDI Wireless Charging Station Works in Landscape & Portrait Orientation

WITTI, makers of cool and cute iPhone accessories, has the answer with another attractive and whimsically-named product. The CANDI Wireless Charging Station ($29.99) is an angled disc that accommodates (and fast charges) Qi-based phones in either portrait or landscape modes. I liked the non-slip surface and sturdy legs and support provided.

CANDI

The CANDI is available in basic black, but also in two colors that are suggestive of candy, naturally. Those colors are soft pink and Tiffany Blue. I hear that those colors might be in limited supply, so I would encourage you to order soon, if interested.
