We have arrived. It may well be December 2015 but we have finally made it to the 21st century. Mobile charging stands and tables are now on the market. Don’t get too excited just yet. Your phone might not be able to automatically charge through a table surface. The good news is these tables and stands are not expensive. Do you need one when a table takes up more space than a cable? I usually charge my phone in the car as I am driving or on a powerboard with USB outlet. These tables, though, are a big step forward and mean sooner , rather than later, we’ll get office desks which automatically charge our devices. That would streamline a lot of offices and classrooms. It would also be great to have wifi charging surfaces in cafes and the like so you could charge your phone as you eat and drink. Great idea!
