Ikea reveals phone-charging furniture


Ikea has launched a range of furniture fitted with wireless charging spots for mobile devices.

The ‘Home Smart’ range of products includes tables, desks, and lamps, and will go on sale in the UK and North America on April 15.

Many mobiles already support wireless charging, and this is expected to become a standard feature in the next few years.

Ikea has used the wireless charging standard QI, which is also supported by Samsung in its latest handset, the S6.

The Swedish furniture firm will sell charging covers for incompatible iPhone and Samsung models.
