WildCharge plates to provide cordless charging

WildCharge Energy Plate

Startup company WildCharge today revealed that it will use the CES expo in January to introduce what it hopes will be a revolutionary new method of recharging most personal electronics. In place of individual and often proprietary plugs, the currently unnamed technology uses a thin plate that transmits the electricity through the devices themselves, reaching the power input through absorption. Such a technique eliminates the necessity for wires and even works across different power requirements, the company claims; multiple devices can be revitalized on the same conductive surface regardless of their exact needs. The only special requirement is a base plate underneath each item. No price has been given, but WildCharge fully anticipates shipping the power source in early 2007.
