The new ElevationLab NightPad Wireless Charger is a minimalist Qi charging pad intended for bed-side. Just for AppleInsider readers, we also have an exclusive discount code down below.

Of all the different talking points for NightPad, ElevationLab is primarily touting the lack of any external LEDs. This is a problem that they, and many others, have had issues with for some time as almost all other chargers out there opt for a fairly bright status light that sticks out in a bedroom environment.

The iPhone does provide charging feedback including an audio tone and a visual demarcation, though this does remove the easily glanceable status to know when iPhone has finished charging.

ElevationLab's NightPad is capable of charging iPhone at 7.5W, the maximum that the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X will allow.

Similar to ElevationLab's other products, NightPad is simply designed, void of any markings or logos that usually plague other chargers. It also looks to have a fairly compact size, much larger than the bulky model that Belkin debuted alongside the latest iPhones.

It has a silicone ring around the top to keep devices in place while charging, and a soft-touch finish that gives it a more "premium" feel.

For those using Android handsets, if you're into that sort of thing, NightPad can handle charging up to 10W fast-charging.

Similar to the nicely-braided cable of their recently-launched CordDock, NightPad has a six-foot braided able to go along with, and an optional 15W QuickCharge 3.0 power supply.

If you'd like to pick one up, the charger by itself will run you $39.95, or you can grab a power supply at the same time for $49.95 for the pair.

We are also able to offer our readers an exclusive 25-percent off discount code, just for this week. During check out, use code AINP25 over at ElevationLab's website.

    “ElevationLab is primarily touting the lack of any external LEDs.”

    It is comprised, however, entirely of internal LEDs.

    $50 is "minimalistic". I'd hate to see the price tag if they come out with a "full featured" model.

    This is now the fifth “exclusive” 25% discount code I’ve seen today. Is there no shame left in the Apple media world? You’re all becoming product shills and commission whores.

    2 things:

    1. Discount coupons are good for customers, as they can pick up stuff cheaper. If AI does get a commission on it, how does it matter?

    2. AI have not reviewed the product and given it a 5 on 5 rating here. They just supplied details on what the product is. AI has never carried a paid review.

    There is a clear demarcation on offers from partners and on the reviews.


    You are just being unreasonably harsh.

    And you are just being unreasonably diplomatic. That guy is a 2-post troll, plain and simple.

    How about a product shot where you can actually see the product?  Not digging the whole black product against black backdrop look -- it may be minimalistic but very hard to see.

    At last, a bedside charger without an LED. I’ve passed up literally every single option so far because it makes absolutely no sense to put a LAMP on a product designed to be used at NIGHT. 

    The article says it has no logo, which is not the case as it does have one (right across the top, can’t miss it) but despite that I might give this a serious look as it does look fairly neat and compact.
