Will the in-car charging mat replace the cigarette lighter socket?

Market research company IHS iSuppli has been looking at the trend of incorporating ‘wireless charging’ cradles or mats in vehicles. It says proprietary solutions are now giving way to industry standards that are compatible with a variety of devices.

The company notes that Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles could include Powermat inductive charging from next year, while VW and Audi are working with Qualcomm on a wireless charging solution.

It also notes that the Qi standard from the Wireless Power Consortium is being favoured by electronics manufacturers in China. However, much of the future development of wireless power depends on what technology - if any - is built into mobile phones and their batteries.
