I have had you can charge the iPad2 wirelessly .How can I do this?
Wireless charging for the iPad2 uses a method called Inductive Charging. This method uses an electromagnetic field to” wirelessly charge” or transfer energy between two objects without a cord. Energy can be sent to an electrical device through inductive coupling, that energy can then be used to charge the device’s batteries. A product called PowerShuttle by LaunchPort which is specifically made for the iPad to uses the same said method. PowerShuttle is a sleeve for the iPad to which can either be mounted to a tabletop BaseStation or a WallStation. Rumors about the product says that charging the product through this method is the same as charging using an AC adapter but whether that is true or not remains to be seen.
iPad 2, Apple’s popular tablet can now be charged wirelessly. The first time I knew about wireless charging I was amazed. This technology of charging batteries without using any cables does not exist before but now it is already possible. Inductive charging is the technology behind wireless charging using LaunchPort.
The LaunchPort system works by enclosing an iPad 2 in a sleeve called PowerShuttle that can be mounted on a tabletop BaseStation or a WallStation. The system uses induction -- the production of an electric current across a conductor moving through a magnetic field. Which means as soon as a PowerShuttle is magnetically mounted to a station, wireless charging begins without a 30-pin cable connection. Both stations, BaseStation and WallStation, let you rotate the tablet 360 degrees. The LaunchPort system costs $350 if you’re quite interested on purchasing it.
