IKEA is to launch a wireless Qi charging pad that can be mounted under a desk to create a wireless charging hotspot.
Next month, IKEA will launch a new wireless charging pad unit to go under any desk in your home or office. The upcoming Sjömärke wireless Qi charging pad will be available for $39.99 and is made to work with any furniture in your surrounding space, so long as the thickness of the surface is between 8mm and 22mm.

The Sjömärke charging pad is made of aluminum and plastic and works through plastic or wood. To set it up and use it on a desk, all you need is a double-sided tape to attach the pad underneath the surface that you’d like to transform into a charging hotspot – i.e., under a bedside table or shelf.
The device will then safely send an electric charge to your phone on the other side of the surface.
The Sjömärke will be “perfect to mount on a desk, side table or bedside table when you want chargers and cables to blend into the decor to keep the room neat and tidy,” according to IKEA’s manual. The package also contains sticky tape, a six-foot power cable, and stickers to mark the location of your new charging spot.
The device is also equipped with a LED light to indicate when it is charging and has temperature and power monitoring for safety. It’s compatible with the latest Qi 1.2.4 baseline power profile and is expected to perform within the range of standard 5W charging.
The Sjömärke will be available in-stores and online in the US and other countries in October.
