Furniture store chain IKEA recently started selling wireless chargers that can turn any piece of furniture into a wireless charging station.
The charging unit retails for $30 and is made by Jyssen.
IKEA also offers a $5 drill saw add-on to create the perfect hole for the charger.
The wireless charger is compatible with most smartphones as long as you buy the right charging cover that costs $25.
Although it’s convenient, Gizmodo points out that the downside to having a wireless charging station is that it’s not good for your device’s battery due to the excess heat it generates.
