While it’s great to have so many gadgets, charging them can not only be a hassle, but the chargers and wires can be a real eyesore. But if you get the Twelve South PowerPic Picture Frame and Qi Charger, it will fulfill a dual purpose and provide you with a beautiful piece for your desktop, kitchen counter, nightstand, or mantle.
While this looks at first glance like a contemporary photo frame, it does double duty as a Qi-certified fast charger that delivers 10W of wireless charging power. It plugs into any USB port, whether that’s on a computer or wall outlet.
Empty, the Twelve South PowerPic Picture Frame and Qi Charger holds your favorite 5×7 photo. But you can also lay your wireless-charging phone, either iPhone or Android, against the glass to begin charging. It’s so much more attractive than a standard Qi charger.
Phones with cases up to 3mm thick work in this frame, though it is not compatible with thicker, more rugged cases or phones that are more than 6.5″ tall. It has foreign object detection if something slips between your phone and the glass. The status light will blink to let you know.
This dual frame/Qi charger, available in both black and white pine, ships with a USB-C to USB-A cable. You can save $40 on it for a final price of just $49.99.
