A wireless charge for your iPhone

The WildCharger wireless charging pad now supports the iPhone.

The WildCharger is one of those products that creates a problem that you didn't know you had. Though the product is certainly innovative and it succeeds at charging your cell phone without a wired connection, we never really thought that we needed to do so. What's more, unless you're charging more than one handset at a time, we don't consider it a practical purchase.

Yet, WildCharge (the device's manufacturer) continues to surprise us. In April, it greatly expanded its list of supported phones beyond the now ancient Motorola Razr V3. And on Tuesday, the company expanded that list even more when it announced a charging "skin" for the iPhone.

The skins, which will be available in July, are $34.99 each. You'll also need to buy the WildCharger pad ($49.99), but if you ever wanted a cell phone charger with "wow" factor, you can't go wrong.
