Don’t Pack: Intel Charging Bowls (Details on pricing and availability not yet released)

This device is a small bowl where you can drop in your cell phone to charge while it’s stored. While a great concept, right now the bowl is not big enough for other wireless devices and is only paired with Intel’s smart headset. Without a larger compatibility and buying details, the wireless charging bowl does not offer much to the consumer.

Do Pack: Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger (Will release later this month, $100)

This compact portable charging device offers two USB ports with a Wi-Fi router. The charger is compatible with an app that will allow smartphone users to upload, download and send documents with Wi-Fi.
