Of course, the distance is only a millimeter or so but still...Shades of Nikola Tesla .
Got the new Qi compatible charger and adapter for my cell phone a few days ago.
No plugging and unplugging. My phone has a small cover over the USB/charging port that makes it "waterproof"....(for some standard of waterproof I suppose?). But it is a pain in the ass to open and close when I want to charge my phone.
I bought a wireless charging pad like these, and an insert for my phone like one of these or these
No more cables. So far, I like it.Toss your phone on the charging mat and walk away. Pick it up when it is done.
If ya got a cell phone and they make an adapter for it, (even I-Phones!!) spend the 30 bucks or so and make it truly wireless....
I guarantee my next new cell phone will have this built in.
Don Channing and the boys at Venus Equilateral would be impressed....
