This series of tabletop and freestanding wireless induction chargers are based on the Qi standard as found in devices like the LG Nexus 4, Nokia Lumina 920 and Samsung Galaxy S4, as well as various cases and dongles widely available for other iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.
Programmable NFC tags are incorporated into the tops which can be used to change ring profiles or perform other tasks such as launch an alram app when the NFC-enabled device is laid on the charger on a nightstand.
