Remember the IKEA SYMFONISK speakers developed in collaboration with Sonos? Well, not only the lamp speaker has gotten an update. The oblong speaker that can double as a shelf itself also has a gen-2. The IKEA SYMFONISK WiFi Bookshelf Speaker is available now in a choice of black or white for US$119.99.

In addition, IKEA has also quietly introduced a new, super cool accessory for the IKEA SYMFONISK WiFi Bookshelf Speaker: the IKEA SYMFONISK Wireless Charging Shelf.

The IKEA SYMFONISK Wireless Charging Shelf allows to you mount the speaker horizontally on the wall and has an integrated shelf below it that doubles as a wireless charging pad for Qi-compatible gadgets such as your smartphones.

The shelf further boasts a USB-C port for fast wired charging of a device at up to 18 W. Not the fastest, obviously, but should be a lot faster than the wireless route.

It is not clear if the IKEA SYMFONISK Wireless Charging Shelf is compatible with both the original IKEA SYMFONISK WiFi Bookshelf Speaker and the Gen-2. However, we are going to assume that it fits both because the product page just stated it is for IKEA SYMFONISK WiFi Bookshelf Speaker.

Anyhoo, the IKEA SYMFONISK WiFi Bookshelf Speaker and IKEA SYMFONISK Wireless Charging Shelf can easily take the place of a bedside table which I thought is super cool in a high-tech way. Personally, I may consider it but before that, I have to resolve where to get the power supply.
