In a press release detailing a number of Lenovo Go accessories, the company also has revealed that its releasing a laptop wireless charger—dubbed the Lenovo Go USB-C Wireless Charging Kit.

The Lenovo Go USB-C Wireless Charging Kit includes a receiver base that plugs into the laptop, and a charging mat that can be plugged into a wall socket or a 45- to 65-Watt charger. Plug in the mat, hook the receiver up to a USB Type-C port on your laptop, then place the laptop and receiver on top of the mat to begin charging.

As the Wireless Charging Kit uses PbC charging, it won't work with standard Qi-based chargers—it uses conduction rather than Qi's induction technology. This means you'll have to use a PbC-compatible transmitter in order for the kit's receiver to begin to charge.

However, PbC boasts charging times as fast as wired charging, does not require precise mat positioning to charge, and can charge multiple devices at once on the same surface.

"Providing freedom of frequent movement between workspace and other locations, the wireless charging kit eliminates the need to disconnect and reconnect a power cord," Lenovo stated in the press release, "Lenovo Go accessories help users achieve their potential by reducing technology barriers to productivity."
