Many of Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones support wireless charging, but only if you are prepared to buy an optional wireless charging back panel. But the South Korean company has vowed to accelerate the technology’s growth in 2015 with greater support in its new Galaxy smartphones.

In a new blog post, Samsung hints at the possibility of support for multiple wireless charging technologies inside the upcoming Galaxy S6.

Got a Galaxy S5 that just cannot keep up? Forget sitting by a charger all day or having to swap out its battery — got the MOTA dual-purpose charging case and increase your Galaxy S5’s battery life by 125% in an instant. Thanks to Cult of Android Deals, it’s just $35 for a limited time.

OnePlus-One-charging

Researchers in the U.K. have developed a cellphone that is charged by ambient sound, eliminating the need for a charger. Filled with energy-harvesting “nanogenerators,” the device uses a principal called the piezoelectric effect to turn the sound vibrations in the atmosphere around it into energy.

Moto-36-charging

Motorola has been keeping the Moto 360’s charging method a secret since its first unveiling earlier this year, but new photos of the device reveal its unique wireless charging dock for the first time. Unlike the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live, the Moto 360 doesn’t appear to have any external connectors on its back, and it’s a great bedside clock while it’s charging.

You know about Magnetyze, right? It’s a system that lets you charge an iPhone 4/S or Galaxy S3 without the need for a cord. Pop your iPhone into the provided case, then drop the case on the magnetic charging base and your iPhone will charge (and sync) — it works kind of like the MagSafe power adapter on a MacBook. It’s really cool on the S3, because the Magnetyze case replaces the S3’s original back, so there’s almost zero extra bulk. Neat.
