Lenovo has announced a new portable product called the “Go” Wireless Charging Kit, which allow you retrofit wireless charging functionality which can work together nicely with wide variety of laptops. It makes use of “Power by Contact” technology from Energy Square, rather than the more common Qi standard.
The kit consists of a 3.2mm-thick brushed metal charging mat that you plug into the wall and leave at your desk, as well as a long wireless charging receiver that attaches to the base of your laptop and connects over USB-C. Once set up, Lenovo says it should charge most 13-inch to 14-inch “non-touch notebooks of up to 65W” with efficiency of 93 percent, and it’ll work with both Windows and macOS devices.
Lenovo will release the Go Wireless Charging Kit in October for $139.99. It’s part of a new range of Go-branded mobile accessories including a Qi-equipped power bank, wireless mice, headphones, and keyboards.
