Soon enough, that tiny coffee shop table turns into a tangled mess you simply can’t decipher and you wish you could reduce the amount of cables you use. What to do? That mousepad doesn’t need to be yet another thing you carry in your bag to serve a single (and not too significant) purpose. What if it could also charge your phone?
That is exactly what Takieso Graft Design did with the MousePad+. This is not just a surface to drag your mouse over. You will notice a wire extends out of the top and can be plugged into your computer’s USB port. This gives power to the Qi wireless charger build right into the leather pad.

It is by no means a lackluster charger, either. This unit supports Quick Charge 2.0 fast charge, boasting 5W, 7.5W, 10W, and even 15W high speed wireless charging support. Because of the natural positioning of mousepads, your phone will be handy while charging.
But hey, if you are a fan of mousepads, the team is not slacking in the design department, either. The MousePad+ is a vintage-looking product with an elegant touch that should look great over any working space. Aside from its leather accents, the product is built with wool fiber and a felt base. It sure is pretty.
Interested? It won’t cost too much to get your hand over one of these if you back the Kickstarter campaign. You can put your mouse on one for as little as $29, and shipping begins in July 2018. It’s not a bad deal, if you ask us. Most other wireless charger will cost the same or more, yet they don’t offer this level of design and functionality.
