On the face of it, LXORY’s new wireless charging pad is a milestone of sorts: It’s the first wireless charging pad powered by a Lightning cable, which for the vast majority of iPhone owners, means it’s the first wireless charging pad you can buy without also having to pick up a new charging cable and wall wart.
A Lightning-powered charging pad has sure been a long time coming (Hi, Apple’s accessories department!), but maybe there’s a reason for that. LXORY’s new pad has some truly gaping flaws that mean you shouldn’t even consider buying it, convenience be damned.
