Starbucks to have wireless charging through Duracell Powermat

Coffee shops are more than just about drinking coffee nowadays. It’s a place to talk and hang-out with friends, read a book on your own, and yes, to kill time while charging your gadgets. That will get even easier as Starbucks announced a national roll-out at their stores the ability to wirelessly charge their phones through the technology of Duracell Powermats, making the race to find a wall socket in the store a thing of the past.

When it comes to charging wires really suck. I think we can all agree that it's much more convenient after a long day to just flop your smartphone onto a charge plate and walk off than having to dig around for your cable and plug your phone it. Powermat has been offering systems for a long time now that allow you to put a new case or battery door in some instances on your smartphone and then charge your phone using a mat and no wires.
