I have never really understood or had a reason for using wireless charging. I guess it is kind of neat that you can set your phone down on a pad and not have to worry about plugging the phone in. The only thing is you still have a wire coming from the wall and your phone still has to sit in that one place while it charges. It is only slightly more convenient.
What IKEA has up their sleeves seems much more appealing than a simple QI charge pad. They are gearing up to release some furniture with built in wireless charging! This is awesome. The one piece of furniture that really peaked my interest is a lamp with a built in table that will charge your device. I set my phone down on the end table all the time. It would be pretty awesome if when i did my phone would start to charge! IKEA has been working on this project for some time now. IKEA says it will release the furniture in the Spring. They will also have wireless charging cases for non wireless charging phones. The case will enable your non wireless charging capable phone to work with the furniture.
