Wireless charging breezes into the Windy City

With wireless charging already in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City and Boston, you could say the city of Chicago was long overdue (well, not as overdue as the Cubbies, but still).

That’s why, today, we’re pleased to announce that Powermat Charging Spots are available in more than 150 Starbucks locations across Chicagoland— a logical next step in the coffee chain's nationwide rollout of wireless charging stations.

The fine citizens of Chicago, a city renowned for its architecture, will now get to enjoy this state-of-the-art wireless technology, which has been seamlessly built into select tables and countertops.

No longer will Chicagoans have to carry around phone chargers and seek out wall outlets when their smartphone is showing the energy levels of a guy who just polished off three pieces of deep dish pizza. No, now when their device is out of juice, all people will have to do is download the Powermat App and visit the nearest Starbucks location.

While many of today’s most popular smartphones are embedded with wireless charging technology, if your device is not, simply buy a Ring that fits your phone. If you live in Chicago, Boston, NYC, LA or San Fran, you can find your nearest POWERMAT CHARGING SPOT HERE.

Our arrival in the Windy City is an excellent way to start the New Year after a big 2015 that saw Powermat wireless technology added to Corian kitchen countertops and new General Motors' vehicles, as well as university campuses on both coasts.
