I'd love to know if power efficiency testing is going to standardized and published for wireless charging. I've seen numbers from 50% to 90% efficiency and nothing definitive. I can't see using a wireless charger if it's only 50% efficient.

They had better hurry up on defining some standards for 3-D before the question becomes moot. I think that the bloom is wearing off that rose pretty quickly. The only way to salvage the technology might be to drive the cost down very quickly. Between this and the adoption curve for Blu-Ray one would think that consumers are finally getting smarter about waiting a bit instead of sheepishly plunking down big bucks for the latest shiny thing.

Eric Giler demos wireless electricity. MIT and WiTricity have been developing a commercial product that charges your cell phone wirelessly. Nokia is currently integrating this technology into some of their mobile phone models. You can watch the video on the technology and see a demonstration of it: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/eric_giler_demos_wireless_electricity.html -Keith Schaub

I will hang out during some of the CEA sessions this week. If anyone has specific questions you'd like me to explore, let me know.

I saw some wireless charging products whereby users need to put the phone onto a holder. Maybe it is more useful when users can carry & use while charging at the same time?

Wireless charging (aka inductive charging) provides convenience to the users. It as well keeps users away from electric shock. I wonder what the efficiency is like. Has the efficiency been improved?

Hopefully they can settle some of the issues in advance so that we don't see another "VHS vs Beta" or "Blu-Ray vs HD DVD" debacle. Of course, some of these are probably already well on their way so it may be too little, too late.

Wireless charging? what effective and convenient is it?
