Turn Your Car's Cupholders Into a Wireless Smartphone Charger

Your car's cupholders were originally designed to hold beverages, but odds are most of us have repurposed them to hold our smartphones instead. So Zens has created a simple slotted insert that turns cupholders into chargers if your smartphone supports wireless charging.

Available mid-April for around $97, the ZENS Qi Wireless Car Charger connects to your vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter and, once plugged in, you no longer have to worry about wrangling additional cables. You just insert a Qi-compatible smartphone (with a 5-inch or smaller display) into the slot and it will start charging.

It's inevitable that at some point cars will come with wireless charging slots or pads as a standard feature, but until that time this seems like a really easy way to upgrade your vehicle with those capabilities. [Zens]
