The three biggest wireless charging standard groups are now down by one, because two of them have decided to join forces. Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and The Alliance For Wireless Power (A4WP) have just made signed a Letter of Intent to merge on the dotted line. The merger, which will operate under a new name, will be finalized by mid-2015, and the two groups hope it can give the technology a boost. "Consumers will gain access to an exciting and enhanced battery charging and power management experience sooner across the full spectrum of devices in daily use," the groups' press release said. "Mobile network operators and commercial and retail brands can commit to the necessary investment confident of stable, long-term evolution and management of innovative wireless charging technologies."
