A global coffee giant is rolling out wireless charging stations to 7,000 shops in the United States.
Stores will be equipped with ‘Powermat Spots’ - designated areas on tables and counters where customers can place their compatible device and charge wirelessly.
Starbucks have paired with battery manufacturer Durcell and have plans to install 100,000 charging stations - around 13 per store- in the coming years.
The charging stations, which look like coasters and will be found on tables and bars, will work by magnetic induction.
Customers will be given small reusable rings that they can attach to their mobile devices to enable their use.
Pilot schemes in Europe and Asia are expected later on the year.
