Wireless charging system for Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5 announced by WiTricity
At CES, WiTricity announced a wireless pad and a case for the Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPhone 5. The company says it is basically a reference design, but it does plan on selling the pad in coming months for $99 and the case for $49. Intel is an investor in the company and was involved in a $25 million funding round back in October. At CES, the silicon slinger is using WiTricity's technology to display a recharging bowl for wearables. Drop your wearables in the bowl, like a smartwatch, and it starts recharging.
