Denso Corp. of Japan is proud to announce that they believe they are first out of the blocks when it comes to the inaugural wireless smartphone charger designed for use in a vehicle worldwide. This charger is tipped for a rollout this coming spring, and will be available for those who have set their eyes and hearts on the “Toyota Avalon Limited” which will be sold to folks living in North America. At the moment, if you want to charge your exhausted smartphone’s battery when driving, you will need to hook up a charger and the smartphone via a cable, but with the new charger from Denso, all you need to do is place your device on the charging pad, and drive away cheerfully.
This wireless charging pad will play nice with smartphones that are compatible with the “Qi” wireless charging standard, but fret not if your smartphone fails to fall under such a criteria, as there is always a Qi-compatible cover to remedy that situation. Now, you just got to make sure that your smartphone does not go flying all over the place on the wireless charging pad especially if you tend to tackle those corners at high speeds.
