The world of wireless charging is littered with many, many pucks and pads that do the job, but don’t do it with any panache. We like something to be a little better than the norm, and that’s where the Twelve South PowerPic Qi charger comes into play.

Normally selling for around $80, this charger has all of the features you’d expect. It supports 10W wireless charging so no matter whether you own an iPhone or Android phone, you’ll be able to charge super-quickly. That’s not this charger’s party piece, though.

That party piece is, of course, the fact that this charger is a photo frame, too. You place your phone on the glass and it charges, but when there’s no phone there, you get to look at a great photo instead. If you’re feeling creative, you can even set your phone’s wallpaper to match, too.

All of this is pretty great, and makes for a wireless charger that’s a cut above the rest. And right now, it’s a bargain, too.

Features include:

  • Place phone against the glass to begin charging. Doubles as a modern 5×7 picture frame crafted from new Zealand pine when not in use
  • Qi-certified fast charger delivers up to 10W of wireless charging power. Plugs into any powered USB port – from your computer at your desk, a USB wall outlet, or any spare USB charger that may have come with your phone or other device.
  • Wirelessly charges through most phone cases up to 3mm thick. Not compatible with thicker rugged cases or devices more than 6.5 inches (165mm) tall

If you need a wireless charger, why not get something a little different to the norm?
