According to a new report from a Japanese Apple blog, Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat will finally be released next month. And according to earlier reports from multiple sources last year, it’s going to cost $200 when it’s released. Being able to wirelessly charge three different devices at once is cool and all, but is it really worth $200!?
