Hopping off the beaten path for a second, we heard a quick mention during Samsung’s Unpacked event this year (you know, the one with the Note 5 and S6 edge+) about the company pouring more investment into wireless charging. Of course, what would help the cause out is a bump up in charging rates and more device compatibility for the standard.
