Dark Energy Mavrik Pad – Wireless Charging Pad for iOS & Android Devices

Nowadays, more and more Smartphones, tablets, and wireless earbuds are starting to feature support to Qi Wireless Charging as one of their battery-charging methods. This power transfer method works wirelessly by using electromagnetic induction, which makes it much more convenient for charging those said devices in comparison to using your typical charging cables. Now, for charging your personal devices via wireless charging (A.K.A. inductive charging / coupling), all you need is a wireless charging pad. Still, with so many brands of wireless charging pads to choose from these days, you might end up feeling indecisive about which brand of wireless charger fits your needs the best. So, if you’re searching for a wireless charging pad that not only is portable and minimalist, but also reliable for charging all of your Qi-enabled devices, then the Dark Energy Mavrik Pad is a great choice for you to go with.

The Dark Energy Mavrik Pad is an ultra-minimalist wireless charging pad that’s fast charge optimized, featuring a built-in MagSafe Magnet for an accurate alignment of MagSafe-enabled devices, a built-in Light Guide for correctly aligning non-MagSafe devices, and 15W of Wireless Charging Power.

Designed to be used for wireleslly charging both iOS devices (which tend to be MagSafe-enabled – meaning Apple’s newest universal wireless charging technology for their most recently released and to-be-released devices) as well as Android devices (which are non-MagSafe), this sleek wireless charging pad makes for a great addition to any desk-space or nightstand.

Now, let’s have a slightly more detailed look at the Dark Energy Mavrik Pad and check out everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & BASIC SPECS

Starting with it’s size, this wireless charging pad comes at a quite compact size, measuring just 6.125 inches long by 3 inches wide by 0.375 inches tall / thick (155.57 x 76.2 x 9.53 mm).

That said, it doesn’t take up much space, which makes it a great addition to any desk-space, nightstand, or ultimately, to have in your car on long road-trips in order to ensure that your your Smartphone and other devices do not run out of juice.

Then, for its design, the Dark Energy Mavrik Pad features a truly minimalist design throughout its solid Black body, which gives it a simple and very discrete look, allowing it to keep a “low-profile” wherever you decide to have it set up.

At the center of the charger’s body, we also have Dark Energy’s Logo in a bright orange color, which adds a bit more style to the wireless charging pad’s design.

Ultra-Minimalist Design

Regarding its construction, know that this wireless charging pad is crafted in premium black leather, which not only makes its overall structure fairly durable, but also helps to keep all of its components neatly protected.

In addition to its durable construction, this wireless charging pad also comes equipped with a set of four non-slip rubberized pads at its bottom-side, which greatly prevent the unit from sliding on any surface, thus keeping it perfectly stable at all times.

Last but not least, the Mavrik Pad also comes together with a reasonably long 6 ft. reinforced USB-C to USB-C Charging Cable, which is used to keep the unit powered.

Its USB-C Charging Cable’s long cord length is actually a really nice thing to have, as that becomes very handy whenever the outlet you’re looking to connect the wireless charger to is located at a hard-to-access spot (such as behind your bed or somewhat far from your desk). While this is something that some people consider to be a simple “luxury”, this is in fact something you don’t really see in some other brands of wireless chargers, so this is definitely a plus.

Moreover, not only does the pad’s included USB-C Charging Cable features an extremely sturdy construction, but both of its ends are reinforced with a flexible rubberized cover, which is then followed by a hard-plastic head.

Not only that, but just like the wireless charging pad, its dedicated USB-C Charging Cable also features Dark Energy’s Logo in the same bright orange color.

On a side note, know that along with the wireless charging pad, you can also get an optional 20 Watt AC Adapter, in case you require it (for just $10 extra).

CHARGING SPECS & CHARGING COMPATIBILITY

Moving on to the Mavrik Pad’s charging capabilities. First and foremost, it’s important to note that this wireless charging pad is Fast-Charge optimized, and engineered to safely deliver up to 15W of Wireless Charging Power.

As said before, this wireless charging pad is capable of charging both iOS devices (which are MagSafe-enabled devices) as well as Android devices (which are non-MagSafe devices),

To be a little more specific, integrated at the center of the unit, there’s a built-in MagSafe Magnet that always ensures users are able to get an accurate alignment of their MagSafe-enabled (iOS) devices with the Mavrik Pad’s induction coils (which are responsible for powering its wireless charging output power).

Alternatively, for helping users to correctly align any non-MagSafe devices, the Mavrik Pad also comes equipped with a built-in Light Guide.

Once an Android Smartphone is placed correctly on top of the Mavrik Pad’s 15W Wireless Charging surface, its built-in Light Guide will turn from a Red LED Light to a Green LED Light, informing you that you Android phone is correctly aligned with the Mavrik Pad’s induction coils.

Note that while this may get a little tricky when charging larger Smartphones (which might end up covering the whole pad), you’ll quickly get the hang of it after a couple uses, no matter what your Smartphone model is.
