PowerKiss wireless charging, a cool new way of charging mobile phones, will be tested in a

limited number of McDonald’s restaurants in Europe in 2013 in partnership with Finland

based Powerkiss Ltd.

The technology will be first tested in a limited number of McDonald’s restaurants in some

selected countries. The wireless charging solution is based on the Qi technology standard,

which is currently supported by more than 130 companies across the world, with an installed

base of more than 15 million units worldwide.

A user can charge his/her phone conveniently by placing it on the dining table while enjoying

a meal or break. The technology is fully integrated into the table and completely invisible.

Customers with a Qi wireless charging enabled device can simply place it on the table to

charge. Customers who do not have the Qi readiness yet, there is the PowerKiss Ring, which

plugs into any phone and makes it immediately ready for wireless charging.

”Wireless charging will be seamlessly integrated into selected table tops of the pilot

restaurants. It is hygienic, safe and unobtrusive, but at the same also functional, aesthetic

and innovative. Therefore it follows McDonald’s Europe interior philosophy very well”, says

Eric Bourgeois, ERDDS (European Restaurant Development and Design Studio), Senior

Director, McDonald's Europe. “It’s always important for us to create premium value for our

mobile customers. The PowerKiss wireless charging solution fits very well into this thinking”.

“Wireless charging is a rapidly growing technology, which significantly enhances the mobile

user experience within all customer groups, from teenagers to families and businessmen. We

are excited to enter the wireless world together with the industry leader McDonald’s Europe”,

says PowerKiss CEO Mats Wolontis.
