The wireless charger Moshi Otto Q It is one of those products that just open your box make you feel that you have been right to buy it. Although the images that accompany the description are of high quality on the Moshi website, when you have it in your hands it is when you realize that, before even connecting it to see if it fulfills everything it promises, the manufacturer has taken care full details.
The Moshi Otto Q is a wireless charger with Danish furniture inspiration And I would also say that it has some influence of Japanese minimalism. As you can see in the images that accompany this analysis, it is as if it were a round cookie 10.2 centimeters in diameter and 13 millimeters thick, weighing 137 grams.
The first of the successes of its design is the rubber base, which makes it “grip” well on the surface of any table, so that if we stop charging the mobile phone and enter vibration mode when receiving a call, the Moshi Otto Q charger will not move, preventing it from falling so much he accidentally used the smartphone.
Other successes are his non-slip gray silicone ring, which as with the base prevents small accidents with the mobiles that we have left on it, and the LED indicator that has on the edge and that allows us to see at a glance how the charge of our device is going (the LED blinks while it is loading). I also really like its gray fabric finish, which as I said is very inspired by Danish design.
Otto Q, how it works
The Moshi Otto Q wireless charger is one of the best I’ve ever tried, and more so considering it’s being sold by competitive ones 44.95 euros on the Moshi website, which incidentally offers a 10-year global warranty after registering the product on the web, something unusual in the technology sector.
The most important thing is that it is a wireless charger qi certificate, which makes it compatible for a multitude of Android devices and also for iPhone (I have done the tests with an iPhone 11 Pro Max) or even to charge my AirPods Pro.
One of the things that worries me the most about wireless chargers is that they literally “toast” the smartphone you put on them. At Amazon you can find cheaper products than the Moshi Otto Q, but they will almost certainly be a terrible purchase due to the negative consequences they will have for the circuitry and battery of any mobile phone.
The Moshi Otto Q has a multilayer heatsink which improves passive cooling and protects the battery, but also thanks to its patented module Q-coil Featuring a 2.6mm ferrite foil it can charge smartphones with cases up to 5mm thick and is compatible with both Apple (7.5W) and Samsung (9W) fast charge standards. It is also important that whenever it detects a metal object (for example a key) wireless charging is disabled immediately.
As for wireless charging, it is clear that at the moment it cannot compete, at least in speed, with cables, but this Otto Q is compatible with the fast charge to reach 10W with a high-performance USB-C charger such as the Rewind C that Moshi herself has in her product catalog. BTW, though I haven’t commented on it, the Otto Q does come with a USB-C to USB-A cable, but doesn’t include the charger.
Regarding the tests carried out, as I mentioned, I used an iPhone 11 Pro Max and took advantage of a 10W charger from Apple. To give an example of some of the measurements I made, I connected the iPhone at 9:55 am with a 35% battery charge and at 11:49 am the charge was 100% complete.
The Moshi Otto Q is a wireless charger inspired by Danish furniture and influenced by Japanese minimalism.
