One day, our Apple iDevices will power themselves wirelessly, sucking in power from elements in the air. Until then, we are stuck with wires and being tethered to a traditional power source. But some vendors are making products that bridge the gap.
One such company is BuquTech, with its Magnetyze Charging System with Protective Case ($59.99). The Magentyze line is well designed and currently supports the iPhone 4, 4S, and promises a version for the iPhone 5 in the future.
If you change phones, or if multiple family members have different devices. You can mix and match and preserve your investment.
The Magentyze charger, true to its name, uses magnets to align the case with its charger, so you can mount the case on your windshield or even directly on a wall outlet!
Another point worth making is, the Magnetyze is not just for charging. The device can be connected via USB to your computer for syncing, too! I'm looking forward to trying the iPhone 5 version with support for Apple's Lightning connector.
