When it comes to charging the Nexus 4, Google has a new way for users to do so in style.

The Mountain View, Calif., company began selling a $59.99 wireless charger for its flagship phone this week that also doubles as a stand.

The charger looks like a tilted, black hemisphere. In the back, the charger has an outlet port, and at the top of the device is a charging pad, which is labeled with the "Nexus" brand.

QUIZ: How much do you know about Google?

"Its angled surface provides easy visibility of your phone while charging," the device description reads.

When a user lays a Nexus 4 phone face up on the device, it will fully recharge the phone in about four hours. And because the device uses a Qi inductive charger, it'll also work with other popular phones that share the technology, including the HTC Droid DNA and Nokia Lumia 920.

The charger can be purchased now on Google Play and will ship within a week.
