A magnetic charging and stand system for smartphones. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. A company called BuQuTech is out with a version of its Magnetyze charging and stand system for Samsung’s Galaxy S III. It also makes the Magnetyze for the iPhone 4 and 4S. What makes it cool? CEO Ophir Marish…
“The unique thing about it is it does what no other protective case can do. It has built in charging and data synchronization through magnetics. So once your phone is inside the Magnetyze protective case, you can wirelessly charge or data sync the phone through the power of magnetics.”
There are desk and car charging holders that work using magnetics. Keep in mind, however, there isn’t a standard pass through port, if you should want or need to use a standard micro USB cable. Priciing for the nicely designed Galaxy S3 Magnetyze system starts at about 70 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
