For all the benefits smartphones have brought to our lives, battery life has suffered. The frustration of low battery power is something Starbucks is now addressing by beginning a US-wide roll-out of wireless charging mats called Powermat.
How does it work?
The wireless Powermats are built into the tables, where patrons can charge their phones by simply placing them in a special charging case on top of the magnetic induction technology.
“Wireless charging enhances the customer experience by providing a solution to a very real problem: The inability to stay powered and connected throughout the day,” says Starbucks’ Maggie Jantzen.
