If you're looking to install some wireless charging tech at home, and you fancy IKEA's home furnishing aesthetics, you'll soon be in luck. The Scandinavian company will begin selling its wireless charging collection that's already on shelves in Europe here in the US by "late spring." This means you'll soon be able to purchase nightstands, lamps and standalone pads that can juice up your device just by laying it down -- if it's compatible with the Qi wireless charging standard, of course. If not, IKEA has compatible cases for iPhone (4, 5, 5s, and 6) and Samsung Galaxy (S3, S4 and S5) phones, too. When you stop in to purchase that new lamp, table or pad, be sure to nab the accessory for an additional $15-$25, depending on the model of your phone.

In terms of pricing for the furniture and fixtures, the bedroom tables are priced at $60 and $100, while lamps equipped with the tech range from $70 up to $120. Not into another piece of furniture? A pad that'll charge two devices simultaneously will set you back $28, and a larger "triple pad" capable of handling four gadgets at once is priced at $65. Finally, for the DIY crowd, there's a $30 option that you can install on your counter or desk (drilling accessories are an extra $5, natch).
