Wireless charger coming this quarter

Comments

WildChargerRemember WildCharge, the guys who were working on the wireless charging platform? Well, they’ve announced the launch of their product at CES, and it should be on shelves this quarter. The iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry 8800 and BlackBerry 8100 should all work just dandy with it, and considering I got an iPod touch for Christmas and use a Pearl, it sounds like a sure bet for me. I’ve never been especially happy that I’ve got to boot up my computer to charge the iPod, which the WildCharger will fix nicely. One thing we missed was that you need to attach an adapter to your device in order for the WildCharger to work, so you’ll have to be okay with a bit of extra bulk and be willing to pay another $34.99 on top of the $59.99 for the pad itself.

    Quite frankly this is ridiculous. Wait to purchase this obviously excellent tech until the manufacturers implement the required native handset or device engineering. Anything else is a potential for nightmares down the road (how about capricious FAA/TSA bans on wireless charger adapters like lithium batteries?). Furthermore, you can also charge your iPod from a USB Wall Wart, or an external battery based charger, without the utilization of a computer.
