wireless chargingAfter fits and starts, the wireless charging market appears to be finally ready for takeoff. Momentum started last year, when Starbucks announced it would roll out Powermat wireless charging first in the San Francisco Bay Area and then on a national scale. Then, at the CES Show in January, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich used his keynote to highlight new wireless charging collaborations, including with Jaguar Land Rover. Then at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, Samsung revealed its flagship Galaxy S6 would include two embedded wireless charging technologies, setting the bar for other smartphone makers. Around the same time, furniture maker IKEA said it would include Qi (pronounced: chee) wireless charging in tables and other furniture products.
