Wireless cell charging

12 Jun, 2014

Starbucks and Duracell Powermat announce that they’ve begun a national rollout of wireless phone chargers in Starbucks and Teavana locations, starting in the San Franscisco Bay Area and featuring a special area on tables throughout the store where customers can place their cellular devices to be recharged. Daniel Schreiber, president of Powermat Technologies, said

This move by Starbucks cuts the final cord of our lives — the power cord. It’s changing the way humanity interacts with power.

Over the next three years, more than 100,000 table chargers — built-in Powermat charge pads — will be installed in Starbucks’ 7,500 company-owned stores in the U.S.
