Ever wondered about recharging your mobile device battery on a piece of furniture? Well, this may soon be a reality with IKEA furniture. The Swedish furniture giant plans to incorporate Qi technology to bring wireless charging to its appliances. This surely will be a breather for people who hate cable mess!
The company will launch a range of Qi charging pads and insert modules that can be easily drilled into your current desk or table. So take your pick from the wide range of IKEA’s hi-tech furniture that integrates wireless charging into home furnishing, from bedside tables to desks to lamps.
The build-your-own furniture store plans to go a step further with Qi charging technology, offering standalone Qi-friendly chargers for those customers that don’t want to buy full furniture sets yet dream to add wireless charging to their lives. With Qi furniture, you can keep your mobile devices powered without requiring those messy charging cables!
IKEA is committed to providing better life solutions for its customers. Built in collaboration with Qi – the global certification standard – the technology will turn bedside tables and table lamps into charging spots.
The new technology, developed by the furniture giant, is designed to meet people’s needs of chargers and outlets, enabling you to place mobile devices on the surface of selected IKEA furniture to replenish batteries, without the need for charging stations.
The innovative Qi technology enables IKEA to integrate Qi wireless chargers into its furniture items. According to the mass-market furniture retailer, the furniture comes with a power source that will facilitate energy transfer to mobile devices.
The smart wireless charging technology is already found in a few Windows and Android phones, which are powered by wireless charging technology. Undoubtedly, the latest innovation in the field of hi-tech furniture is a blessing for people who have always wanted to get rid of the cable mess.
IKEA will launch its new Qi furniture collection in Europe and North America starting in April and gradually offer the facility to its global audience. With a commitment to make home life more convenient, simpler, and easier, IKEA is offering this innovative new design collection that integrates wireless technology into its attractive and functional home furnishing units!
