Tech Report: Buzzing In Tech

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Starbucks has started to offer customers a way to wirelessly charge their smartphones while they are inside their café.

They are installing these Powermats into the tables.

Powermats offer wireless charging to compatible smartphones or any smartphone that is wearing the special Powermat case.

The idea is you walk into Starbucks get your coffee and then set your phone down on the Powermat area built into the table and charge your phone, no cables needed.

If you don’t have a power mat case on your phone they will loan you an adapter attachment at the counter to make it work for you.

Bay Area Starbucks will be the first ones in the country to have this.
