What are you looking for in a wireless charging pad? The product category is mature enough that you now have your pick: small and discreet, fabric-covered, even triple-coil multidevice pads for charging a whole family’s worth of phones. But what if you want a light show? Then consider RapidX’s Prismo, an RGB charging pad with nine color profiles. Right now I’ve gotten an exclusive 20% off for CNET readers — it’s usually $30, but you can now get thewhen you apply promo code CNET20 at checkout.
For the most part, the Prismo looks like a typical charger: It’s a 4-inch diameter puck that stands about a half-inch thick. It’s equipped with a USB-C port (and comes with its own USB-C cable). But it also has an LED ring that encircles the entire pad. The ring is on the underside where the glow can easily reflect off your desktop.
The nine color options include a few standard rotation and pulsing modes along with a solid and steady red, green, purple, blue and yellow. A small button on the underside lets you switch among the color modes — no desktop software install is needed to control it.
As for actual charging, this Qi-certified pad pushes out 10 watts for fast-charging any compatible phone, including QC 2.0 and QC 3.0 devices.
