Size and Aesthetics
As expected the mophie Charge Stream Pad Mini is one of the smallest Qi charging pads we’ve seen so far at only a few inches wide and ¾ of an inch thick. Mophie markets the product as the ideal travel companion for those looking for a convenient way to easily plug in and charge without the hassle of a big charger. At only 24 inches long you can easily pack this charger in your pocket or in a bag whenever you need.
However, not only is the Charge Stream Pad Mini small but it has a unique aesthetic that resembles a folded rectangle, this creates a nice square platform for your phone on the small charger but it also has a slight slant which makes your phone screen a bit more visible than on standard pads. The pad only comes in a dark black but it uses different shades to give it a distinctive style.
This mophie wireless charger functions like a standard wireless charging pad but is unusually small for extra portability. Unlike the Charge Force series Charge Stream products can be used with all Qi enabled devices.
Unlike the Charge Force range Charge Stream products do not contain magnets, however just like most other mophie chargers there is a non-slip TPU coating on the base and the front panels to prevent sliding of both the phone and the charger and to prevent scratches.
The mophie Wireless Charging Base contains only one transmitter coil and is generally a small charger so securing the phone in position may take a bit of fiddling.
Due to the miniature nature of this product that is designed for on-the-go charging there is no LED indicator built into the pad.
Whilst this product is certainly cheap as far as wireless chargers go, it does offer slightly less convenience due to its miniature nature. However, the design is ideal for those who are looking for a smaller, more portable charger and this would be a recommended purchase for those people.
