Xpad wireless charging pad is the world’s thinnest

It takes a certain amount of cojones to push for a product that can carry a superlative adjective in front, such as the world’s thinnest or lightest. PlusUs is no shrinking violet, having recently introduced the Xpad that it touts to be the world’s thinnest and first-ever flexible wireless charging pad. The Xpad is actually a charging pad that is made entirely from genuine Italian leather, real timber veneer or cork. At first glance, most people would not think of it as a wireless charging pad actually thanks to its beautiful, modern design that was specially handcrafted from eco-friendly materials. As for the Xpad’s compatibility with a bevy of modern day smartphones, do not worry as it has been proportioned to accommodate virtually all different smartphone sizes and is ideal regardless of whether you use it at home or at work.

Using plenty of eco-friendly natural materials as part of the effort to reduce the carbon footprint, the Xpad features a circuit board that is separated from the coil, resulting in a device that ends up being 75% thinner compared to other wireless pads that are in the market and yet managing to remain flexible. The natural textures, tones and durable characteristics of these eco-friendly materials results in the Xpad being a mere 2.2mm thin, which in turn also helps to increase both power and efficiency. The minimalistic, ultra-thin, flat, robust, flexible design would also be aesthetically pleasing on any surface, even being at home on a contoured couch armrest.

The Xpad boasts of adaptive smart chip technology that will automatically detect any Qi compatible device while delivering charge at the fastest speed that was set by device manufacturer. For added convenience, the Xpad can also be used with all kinds of wall chargers, including Power Delivery and Quick Charge fast chargers as well as standard USB chargers. This means you are no longer limited to a single charging protocol, and any home or office with numerous devices from various brands will also be able to take advantage of its versatility.
