A fundamental shift in the way we recharge our mobile devices is underway and most of us aren’t really aware of it. But over the last few years, wireless charging technology has been making huge strides and it’s now reaching the point where it might become ubiquitous. Here’s what you need to know.

Much like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi are standard transmission protocols that allow connected devices from any manufacturers who use the technology to communicate with one another, there is now a new transmission protocol for wireless inductive charging called Qi (pronounced “chee”) which allows consumers to conveniently power smartphones and other devices today and in the future, regardless of manufacturer.

Developed with the latest in LED technology, the collection uses advanced circuitry and optics to create an integrated lighting system that enhances your environment, creating just the right ambiance. What is really cool is that you never have to replace the LEDs.
