Starbucks brings wireless charging to Silicon Valley

Starbucks is extending its trail of the technology which turns desks and tables into huge smartphone and tablet recharging points after promising results in Boston.

Wireless charging is taking another step, albeit a small one, towards the mainstream. From this weekend, consumers with a wireless charging smartphone or tablet will be able to simply put their device down on a table and top up its battery when visiting a Silicon Valley Starbucks. Earlier this year, the coffee shop chain started testing integrated wireless charging technology in its Boston stores and is now rolling out the service to a second area of the US.

At some Starbucks stores, simply set your phone down and let it charge.
