Meet HoverCharge, The World’s Best Wireless Phone Charger That Works in Your Car, Home and Office
HoverCharge is the world’s best phone Qi wireless charger that works in your car, home and office. The 3-in-1 Wireless Phone Charger by Matryx wants to become the only charger you will ever need. HoverCharge is a fast Qi Wireless Charger, 7.5W for Apple & 10W for Android. It’s anti-gravity, requires no magnets and it won’t block NFC.
Qi (from the Chinese word qi, “energy flow”) is an open interface standard that defines wireless power transfer using inductive charging over distances of up to 4 cm (1.6 inches), and is developed by the Wireless Power Consortium. The system uses a charging pad and a compatible device, which is placed on top of the pad, charging via resonant inductive coupling.
With a prototype ready, the startup debuted its Kickstarter campaign on May 24th to raise $5,500 to launch the charger in July. It hit over 400% of its funding goal already. With 3 days to go in its campaign, the HoverCharge claims to be the highest quality & most affordable option in a market flooded with wireless chargers.
The charger uses a special mount, developed by Matryx, to hold your device without any cradles or magnets. “Magnetic wireless chargers, which require metal plates, block your NFC payments and damage your device when the metal plate is removed, HoverCharge uses proprietary epoxy-based rubber mount, your phone sticks to the charger like magic, no magnets or metal plates involved,” Zille said.

- 1 x HoverCharge
- 1 x Long-Arm Suction Mount
- 1 x Vent Mount
- 1 x 3M Mount

HoverCharge is a 3-in-1 Wireless Charger.
For your Car
Designed with multiple mounts in mind, all of which are included in the kit, the HoverCharge can be used flat like a conventional wireless charger or displayed as a stand; in portrait or landscape view. “The goal was to offer solutions to the problems people face with the wireless chargers offered in the market today,” she said, “and what we ended up with was a wireless charger that provides more features than all of them combined.” The Qi wireless charger offers 7.5 Watts for supported iPhones & 10 Watts for supported Android devices, comes with a car and a wall power adapter and works with or without a case.
Supports 7.5W Qi Fast Wireless Charging for the iPhone.
And 10W Qi Fast Wireless Charging for over a dozen Android Phones.
No Magnets. No Metal Plates. No Nano-Suction Tape. No Problem.
Magnets mounts require metal plates on your phone, blocking all NFC payments (Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay), and will damage your device if the metal plate is removed. Nano-Suction tape lose their grip after just a few uses. Our epoxy based mount grips to your phone like a magnet, without the magnet. No metal plates required, NFC payments not blocked. No residue left on your device.
HoverCharge continues to hold its strength again and again. We tested the same prototype for over a year and it holds any phone, no matter what size, bare skin or bulky cases, with the same strong grip.
HoverCharge can Handle any Road or Driver.
Works with or without a Case.
Portrait or Landscape.
We worked on building a design that was minimal, iconic, but invisible when in use. Using the highest quality materials, we housed a Qi Standard wireless charger in a body that doesn’t overheat, with fixed frequency so nothing interferes with your phones touchscreen, compass or Face ID, in one of the most compact form for a wireless charger. The HoverCharge can be tilted 360° with the four separate mounts provided, so you can use your charger practically anywhere!
Long-Arm Suction Mount
Many were skeptical of the ‘anti-gravity’ feature. “When we first developed this technology we never expected it to perform the way it did,” she said. “Our testing lasted over a year, in some of the most harsh driving conditions.” The team took out the HoverCharge off-roading, drifting and to places such as the famous Lombard street in San Francisco. “With 13-months of testing under our belt the whole team was confident that this charger could handle it all,” said Zille. The pre-order prices start at $19. Zille said she plans to ship the product in late-July of this year, at $59.
