About this project
We're Back On Kickstarter!
After more than a year of hard work, we are finally ready to introduce our latest project! Meet the first truly useful smartphone mounting system with extremely fast Qi wireless charging! Mount it, charge it, love it!
Incredibly Fast Charging for iPhone and Android
XVIDA Wireless Chargers are equipped with a next generation US Texas Instruments chip and proprietary electronics that allow for maximum transfer of power from charger to your phone. This allows us to provide a constant charge at an incredible 0.970A current which is almost 50% more than standard Qi chargers and almost identical to the max. possible iPhone wired charging current of 1A. In other words, it provides wireless charging that’s just as fast as an old-school cable, but with all the extra benefits of next-generation wireless charging.
Flawless positioning- 100% Reliability
If you’ve got a wireless charger, you probably know how frustrating it can be to make sure your phone’s charging coil is lined up perfectly with the charger. Move your phone slightly off center, and charging can slow down or simply stop. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Our magnetic locking interface ensures your mobile phone always snaps into optimal charging position, whether it’s in portrait or landscape mode.
Remarkably simple to use
Our unique magnetic mechanism self-aligns and locks the phone to the mounting point with zero effort. A simple tap is enough to mount your phone securely and start charging it. It is as intuitive as the smartphone itself and useful across a range of applications.
Universal Mounting and charging
Already own a Qi- enabled smartphone? Then check out StickyPad, our universal magnetic adapter that allows your device to become compatible with all XVIDA Wireless Charging accessories. Simply apply StickyPad to the back of your phone and you will be able to magnetically connect to and charge your phone with XVIDA Mounts & Wireless chargers.
Designed for every environment
XVIDA Smartphone Mounting System with Qi Wireless Charging is a complete collection of functional accessories, designed for home, office and car.
Our aluminum Desk Stand's design and unique magnetic interface make it easy to attach and secure your device, letting you use it effortlessly during charging, in either portrait or horizontal orientation.
Designed for horizontal or vertical orientation, XVIDA Car Mounts provide effortless and simple solution for hands-free navigation…and keeping your phone charged, too!
The slimmest and lightest iPhone charging case
XVIDA wireless charging cases for iPhone 6/6S, iPhone 6/6S Plus, are the slimmest and lightest inductive charging cases on the market, period. They add zero bulk to your phone, yet offer full all-round protection from scratches and accidental drops.
Do you already have a Qi wireless charger at your home or at the office? Great, XVIDA StickyCase will enable you to use any Qi inductive charger to power your iPhone. You will also be able to use any Qi-compatible wireless charging mat, including the KoolPuck or KoolPad, and wireless charging mats found in such wide-ranging locales as The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf chain stores in the US, integrated into select furniture from IKEA, in major US airports, and more.
Where are we at and why we need your help?
We’ve been working on XVIDA wireless charging for over a year and half now. All the products you have seen in the video are real, working prototypes, that have been tested for months. We started manufacturing the tooling and all it takes for the production to start, is your pledge. Your contribution will help fund:
- Packaging design and tooling
- First production run
With your support, we can finally bring seamless wireless power and effortless magnetic mounting to your home, office or car! We hope you’ll join us!
Engineering & Design Process
We started our mission to solve the problem of empty battery by exploring all the available wireless charging technologies and standards, and in the end decided to go with Qi technology as it is the most reliable and widely used among global smartphone manufacturers (Samsung, Nexus, Apple Watch, etc.). When designing XVIDA Wireless Chargers, there were quite a few challenges. The first was how to achieve fast charging and eliminate overheating, but still keep the charging unit very small and compact. This was problematic, because when the components are packed very closely together to reduce size, the result is overheating. And the second was how to combine our existing magnetic mounting system with inductive charging components, but at the same time prevent the magnetic field to decrease the efficiency of inductive charging.
We solved these problems by developing our very own wireless charging components, and by successfully isolating the magnetic field. The solution was then tested for several months and optimized until we achieved the charging rate, equal to the speed of wired charging and overheating was completely eliminated. The result is a complete system of Qi wireless charging accessories, designed according to the standards, developed by Wireless Power Consortium's specifications. Magnetic locking ensures effortless positioning and ensures your phone always aligns in an optimal horizontal/vertical position that allows for a constant maximum transfer of power to the battery.
Who we are
We're a team of young, driven individuals who believe in constant innovation, European design & craftsmanship, high quality manufacturing and providing a superb customer experience. We are based in beautiful Ljubljana, Slovenia and sunny Los Angeles, California. We started XVIDA because we wanted to be able to do more with our favorite mobile devices, and because we believe mobile accessories should be versatile, easy to use, well made, durable and, above all, beautifully designed.

Risks and challenges
This is XVIDA’s second Kickstarter project. While this does not eliminate all risks automatically, our first Kickstarter project allowed us to gain valuable experience on how to manufacture high-quality products. We learnt some hard lessons the first time around, particularly how to deal with unexpected manufacturing issues. But 4 years later, we are now much better equipped to deal with them and keep our backers happy. As a result, we can confidently say we know what we are doing and we are fully capable of delivering what we promise, without unnecessary delays. And in the event our project is not funded we will deliver the products regardless.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
