Wireless charging has yet to take off, but that doesn’t mean it won’t become commonplace in the future. Nikkei is reporting that Sony will commercialise wireless charging during the second half of 2014. It says that Sony has developed technology that drastically reduces the time taken to wirelessly charge a smartphone or tablet.
The device uses 10-15 watts, supplying twice the electricity of older chargers, cutting the charging time by half. It is apparently based on specifications under the Qi international standard.
