GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Wouldn't it be nice to charge your phone at the lunch table? If you're eating at Kitchen 67 in Grand Rapids, you can, no cords required.


It looks like a coaster on the booth tables of Kitchen 67, but it's actually a wireless charging pad. Grand Rapids based Gill Electronics recently installed them, giving customers a chance to charge up during meals.

"The customers love it," says Kitchen 67 owner, Johnny Brann Jr., "It's really well received. They come in here and they're just excited to see that they can get a charge on their phone while they're here. Otherwise they were coming in and they would ask, do you have an outlet, do you have a port, is there a way I could charge my phone. So now it's right here at the table with the newest, latest, greatest technology."


If your phone doesn't have wireless charging capabilities, there are adapters on the table that plug right into your phone's port.
