The Mobee Magic Feet Adds Inductive Charging To All Your Apple Peripherals [CES 2012]

The Magic Feet from Mobee looks set to become the perfect accompaniment to Apple’s wireless peripherals, by introducing an inductive charging system that wirelessly charges the batteries in your Bluetooth keyboard, Magic Mouse, and Magic Trackpad, without you having to remove them.

It charges three accessories simultaneously, with just 6 hours required for a full charge. It also introduces four more USB ports to your Mac.

The $150 accessory is designed to fit right in alongside your aluminum Apple devices, as a “stylish compliment” to your iMac or Thunderbolt display. It claims to be cost affective and eco friendly, charging up to three devices simultaneously and providing up to ten days of use from a single charge.

    Instead of this, you could probably use Engergizer AA and AAA recharging packs. That is if they supply AAA in rechargeable form. I’m not a fan of buying expensive kits these days.

    If only it had a universal dock built in.

    I got an Energizer charger with 2 rechargable batteries on clearance at Target for $5 bucks.  Think I’ll take the extra $145 here and buy me a new monitor.
