ASUS PW100 WIRELESS CHARGING STAND $99.99 asus.com
This “pyramid” shaped inductive charging dock allows you to charge compatible phones and tablets wirelessly. It uses the “Qi” standard of wireless charging, so will work with Samsung and Nokia smartphones as well as a host of tablets, including Asus’s own products. All you have to do is plug the stand to the wall outlet and drop your device into the groove at the front to start charging – you don’t even have to remove it from its protective case. A built-in, easy-to-see, LED will let you know when your phone or tablet is charging and when it is fully juiced up and ready to go. The handy stand also allows you to use your device as a bedside clock while you charge it at night. It seems the death knell for cables has sounded.
