Toyota to put wireless phone chargers in cars
Toyota is going to have a feature in one of its new models that will let you wirelessly charge your phone while you drive.
All the driver (or passenger) will need to do is leave their smartphone on the mat and let it charge.
This saves you from having to fumble around for a charging cord – or battle over the cigarette adaptor socket.
The feature isn’t cheap, however. It’s bundled in the $1,950 “technology package.”
And don’t expect that feature to work with all phones right away. Toyota says it’s only compatible with handsets that use the Qi standard (pronounced chee).
