Battery manufacturer Duracell have revealed their very own wireless charging device, dubbed 'myGrid'.

The myGrid claims to be as fast as standard 'old fashioned' wired charging and can power a variety of gadgets wirelessly, including handsets from Nokia, Motorola, Blackberry and Apple, it can also support a range of MP3 players.

The super thin charge pad knows when a compatible device is placed on it, instantly beginning the charge, the pad will then turn off automatically when nothing is present.

Various sources are speculating that this technology has been licensed from WildCharge, who released their extremely similar wire-free solution earlier in the year. This news comes shortly after the Wireless Power Consortium announced that they were edging closer to finalizing an industry standard for wireless power.

The myGrid is due for release in October, although no price has been announced.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
