Lets get real. Not everyone has money to drop for furniture that wirelessly charges your gadgets. Similarly, not everyone has the technical skills to DIY a table that does wireless charging. With all that said, it does not mean you are left without a solution. There is and it is called V-Juice. The name itself is not quite obvious, but V-Juice is a super thin (possibly the flattest we have seen) wireless charging pad designed to wirelessly charge compatible smartphones and tablets.
V-Juice comprises of a super thin charging pad that goes onto say, for example, your kitchen countertop, a separate charger module that hides away (in the drawer or underside of the table), and a power supply. I won’t say it will eliminate the eyesore a standard charging pad brings, but at least the thinness makes it a lot more inconspicuous. The charge delivery pad itself adheres to most surfaces and can be easily relocated if required. It has a cable leading to the charging pad, obviously, but it is equally thin too, thus maintaining the discreet look.
It appears that V-Juice only comes in white, which won’t help if you furniture is dark colored. V-Juice is a Germany product and we heard it is patent-pending. V-Juice was born out of the need to integrate wireless charging into a home’s interior design without pricey renovation. It is actually a brilliant idea that I am quite surprise it has not gain as much traction on Kickstarter. If you like to see V-Juice make it to the market, perhaps you may consider backing the campaign and keeping your fingers crossed that it gets funded in the next 25 days or so.
It is not exactly affordable though. Early bird perk offers you 25 euros (about US$29) for one V-Juice charging pad. $29 is not over-the-top pricey, but if you are thinking about dropping a few around the house which this gadget appears to suggest, it can get pretty expensive. But hey, it is probably still way cheaper than getting a pro solution and hacking these and that, right?
