Battery manufacturer Duracell have revealed their very own wireless charging device, dubbed 'myGrid'.

The myGrid claims to be as fast as standard 'old fashioned' wired charging and can power a variety of gadgets wirelessly, including handsets from Nokia, Motorola, Blackberry and Apple, it can also support a range of MP3 players.

The super thin charge pad knows when a compatible device is placed on it, instantly beginning the charge, the pad will then turn off automatically when nothing is present.

Various sources are speculating that this technology has been licensed from WildCharge, who released their extremely similar wire-free solution earlier in the year. This news comes shortly after the Wireless Power Consortium announced that they were edging closer to finalizing an industry standard for wireless power.

The myGrid is due for release in October, although no price has been announced.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
