WildCharge Inc. plans to release a charging pad on July 7th that will charge gadgets like iPods and cell phones without the use of cables. I know that I'm sick and tired of trying to find roomfor allmy power cordswhen my gadgetsneed a good charging. Such a device could solve this problem,along with my fears of burning down my house by shorting out thosespider-legged outlets. 老域名购买

According to Gizmodo, the WildCharge "uses inductive charging—the type you see in Sonicare toothbrushes—that will charge your gadget just by placing it on the sheet." The company's web site, however, says that the pad "does not use any electromagnetic or other kinds of radiation." I tried calling the company to get some more information on exactly how this product works, but I was left with an answering machine, so I'm still not sure.

Just the thought of being able to walk into my house and place my cell phone on the counter or my desk to charge without worrying about wires really gets me pumped about this device. WildCharge Inc. says the WildCharge will come in two flavors, a small pad and a large pad, and the chargers will require that you apply a special clip or case to your gadget in order for it to charge. Still, with prices in the area of $39 and $100 for the small and larger models respectively, it's a pretty nice bargain.

I suppose it all comes down to how badly you want to ditch your cords and move on to a charging pad. Personally, I'm ready for the switch—just think, you'll only need to carry around one charging device in your laptop bag in order to power all your gadgets on the road (that is, if you're willing to carry around a plate instead of multiple charging cords). Judging by the picture and common sense, you'll still need to have an outlet to plug the charging pad into.

I wonder if there will ever be a day when we can walk into our homes and place our iPods down on entire counter tops that charge our most-used devices. With technology like the WildCharge, it seems that day might not be so far off.
