The Future of Wireless Power
Mary Branscombe, Tech Radar
The surprise hit of this year's CES was wireless charging - and the technology is set for a major boost during the remainder of 2013. Nokia, LG, HTC, Motorola and Samsung have already put Qi standard wireless power receivers into recent phones like the Lumia 920 as well as Bluetooth headsets. Nokia promised last year that US coffee chain Coffee Bean would offer wireless charging points in its tables and the Las Vegas store marks the fifth US city to get them. You can borrow a charging case or micro USB adapter if your phone doesn't have Qi built in.
