Pure Energy:

Pure Energy is one of several companies presenting wireless charging options. Pure Energy uses conductive rather than inductive charging method. This means the charge is directly sent to the unit that needs to be charged through a series of contacts. I was concerned about having this around little kids (the love to touch things), but placing your hand on the device will cut the charge and result in no shock.

Pure Energy has several different charging pads ranging in power to charge just a few devices all the way up to their latest pad which will support charging laptops, e-readers, batteries, and many other devices. In fact, I'm told that if it will fit on this pad, it can charge it. Assuming of course the right connectors are there.

For some devices there are custom skins, others have a custom back which provides the contacts to the Pure Energy charging mat. If there is no solution, you can always try one of two universal adapters. The first one places an adapter onto the device's charging port, and then a metal disk on the back. An adapter connects these to ensure the power is transferred to the charging port. Another one uses a power charge pad with the conductive points to a dongle which you connect to your devices.

Pure Energy is working to have their charging points integrated into devices. MSI has customized one of their Netbooks to include these charging points. Simply place the Netbook onto a Pure Energy charging pad and it will charge.

There are several other manufacturers of similar devices. Some of these (such as Duracell) license the technology and manufactures their own devices. Thankfully, if that is the case, a power adapter for one should work on the others.
