Hands-On With The Tylt VU Solo: It's A VU, Only Smaller

One of my favorite innovations that has started to become more mainstream over the past several years is wireless charging.

Freescale's New Qi Wireless Charging Tech Can Pump Out 15W Of Power, Three Times More Than Current Chargers

Don't Panic, The Nexus 6 Will Come With Support For Wireless Charging
