Later today, Starbucks and Duracell Powermat will announce they've begun a national rollout of wireless phone chargers in Starbucks locations. Starting in San Francisco, customers will be able to set their cellphones down on designated spots on their tabletop, and their batteries will charge as they eat, drink, read or chat. No plugs. No cables. No cost. Over the next three years, more than 100,000 table chargers — built-in Powermat charge pads — will be installed in Starbucks' 7,500 company-owned stores in the U.S. To use the system, you've got to either have a wireless charging-capable cellphone — few are right now — or a phone accessory with the capability.
