IKEA is finally all set to officially launch a wireless charging shelf component dedicated to the SYMFONISK Shelf Wi-Fi speaker.
Earlier this year, IKEA released the second-generation SYMFONISK Shelf Wi-Fi gen.2 Speakers. Designed in partnership with Sonos, the SYMFONISK Gen 2 speaker allows you a smooth and quick pairing of your device with other music accessories from the brand.
Along with providing additional storage space to the device, it will also have an 18 W USB-C port which supports both wired and wireless charging. It will also provide a thunderbolt lightning speed for charging smartphones and other Qi-compatible gadgets wirelessly. Also, an integrated custom AC-adapter for the Gen.2 SYMFONISK Bookshelf Wi-Fi Speaker is also available.
It can be controlled wirelessly via the IKEA or Sonos mobile app. It is also compatible with IKEA Home smart ecosystem. The SYMFONISK also works well with Spotify Connect and supports Apple AirPlay2, letting you stream music directly from Apple devices with an iOS version 11.4 or later.
You may also combine the gadgets with other Sonos speakers to create a more immersive home theater experience.
The SYMFONISK speaker also offers you the privilege to mount it either horizontally or vertically depending on your needs. It can be placed horizontally on the wall and used as a shelf. The upper arms have screw holes for the Sonos-branded SYMFONISK Bookshelf Speaker, while the bottom half can wirelessly charge gadgets up to the size of a smartphone. That segment can also be used as a storage place.
One major snag is that the shelf is only compatible with the SYMFONISK bookshelf Wi-Fi Speaker.
Initially set to release in Europe, the Symfonisk shelf with charging function costs €40 ($43). There’s no word when it will be released in the US and the UK. The IKEA SYMFONISK Gen 2 Shelf Wi-Fi Speaker is available for €129 (~US$140); the device measures 10 x 15 x 31 cm (~3.9 x 5.9 x 12.2-in) and is available in black and white in IKEA’s online store.
