Starbucks teams up with Duracell to place iPhone-compatible wireless chargers in coffee shops


Mike Beasley:

The program will place 100,000 of the Duracell chargers at specially-marked tables in each Starbucks location. Users would then be able to charge any phone using a compatible wireless charging system.

So far the program has only rolled out in a few stores, but it’s scheduled to reach more markets by next year. There’s not a timetable yet for when the rollout will be complete.

While the program is only available in a few stores right now, a page on the website for the initiative lists locations where the service is currently offered.

Seems like a smart idea – it will be interesting to see how the rollout is received 6 months down the line.
