IKEA's furniture with built-in wireless charging is coming to the U.S. in late spring
We recently rounded up some of the best wireless chargers you could purchase for your brand new Samsung Galaxy S6. But if you’re looking for something a little more futuristic, Samsung and IKEA have you covered. Announced at MWC 2015, IKEA and Samsung revealed their plans to bring wireless charging to living rooms and kitchens in Europe and North America sometime in the near future. And today, IKEA has finally given us some pricing and availability information on the new furniture items.
In the PDF attached below, you’ll find nightstands and lamps with wireless charging capabilities built-in. And while there aren’t any fully compatible office desks, IKEA has created a versatile wireless charger called the JYSSEN that can fit into the company’s MICKE or STUVA desks. If you want to take it one step further and integrate the JYSSEN into your own desk, IKEA is even selling a hole saw bit called the FIXA, which will cut the perfect whole for your wireless charger. If you aren’t in the market to buy any furniture at the moment, there are a few nice-looking wireless charging pads available in the catalog, as well.
Pricing is surprisingly on the inexpensive side, ranging from $27.99 for a wireless charging pad to $118.99 for a nice lamp. There are a ton of new products being offered, so you’ll definitely want to take a look at the source link below. You can expect to see the first wireless charging-compatible furniture items become available in the United States sometime in “late spring”.
