Wireless charging is a good addition to have in furniture. However, I wonder if the current standard of 5v at 1amp for a smartphone and 5v at 2amp for a tablet will remain the same moving into 2016 and beyond. If requirements change then, furniture will need to be replace and the depreciation cycle of furniture is longer than, tech gadgets. Nevertheless, wireless charging is another one of those technologies that needs to advance and it will not advance if firms are not experimenting with the technology.
Currently, I use a 20,000mAh power bank because, it always seems that the wall socket is designed/placed to be just out of reach to charge and at the same time utilize a device.
