The Luna charging device is another entry in Aukey’s line of Qi compatible chargers. This new design will not only charge your Qi compliant devices its unique shape will draw attention as an attractive conversation piece as it sits on your desk.
The Luna’s interesting shape sets it apart from other chargers in both size and function. It looks a bit like a small sattelite dish sitting on a stand. This round moon shape is also larger than previous chargers and is particularly useful for those of us with a phablet sized smartphone that needs a bit more support than one of the smaller models.
- Charger dimensions: 6.81″ x 6.81″ x 0.47″
- Charger weight: 9oz

The Luna charger is more than just a pretty face or an ornament for your desktop. With the download of the specially designed Luna App which is available for both Android and iOS you can extend the Luna’s functionality to include some new features not found in other Qi chargers. The Luna App is a free download from the Google Play Store. Just search for Aukey Luna and select download. Once installed, the App adds special custom modes to take the place of a blank screen while your phone charges.
These options include:
- Playing Movies
- Listening to Music
- Viewing a slideshow of your photos
- Displaying an analog clock
Your selection will appear on the screen while the phone is charging and will stop when charging is complete. Just the thing to cure any separation anxiety you might experience when your phone needs to take a time out to charge.
The Luna is a fast and efficient charger. It uses three overlapping planar charging coils for the widest possible charging surface area. This allows for positioning the charging device in the optimum position, vertical or horizontal, for both charging speed and stability on the charger. The Luna offers consistent output of 1.3A (1.5A MAX) and will charge your devices 15-20% faster than an average QI wireless charger.
My Leagoo Lead 1 phablet with an externally applied Qi receiver, charged quickly on the Luna while it displayed a slideshow of the images stored on the phone. The more expansive charging area made it easier to position the larger phone securely so it didn’t slide off as it would on some smaller chargers. It was a nice change.
