Sony Launches Wireless Charging Accessories for Xperia Z2 Owners

Sony announced two wireless charging accessories for the Xperia Z2 this morning, a charging cover and a charging plate. Both incorporate Qi technology, which utilizes electromagnetic induction to send juice to your phone’s battery without the help of cords and wires. 

The WCR12 charging cover snaps around your Xperia Z2, much like a smart cover would on any other device. To use it, you will need the WCH10 charging plate, which allows you to just place the phone down for it to begin to charge. And if the cover interests you already, you will be happy to hear that it doubles as its own phone stand, too.

Both accessories are listed on Sony’s site, but neither show a price or US availability dates. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, though, as the Xperia Z2 is not available through any US carriers.

However, if you are interested in buying either accessory for your imported smartphone, UK’s Clove retailer has both of them here.

    Atleast LG has had this wireless charging done right. Have it come included with the phone and no extra accessory to buy,

    • Ray

      Well you still need the charging pad but I get your point. This is the first phone with a removable back that I can think of that’s had it included.

    I love seeing devices we may not be able to ever purchase

      It’s pretty easy to buy the Z2 even in the US. Clove, Handtec, and some eBay sellers are all good choices. We even get it much cheaper than the Europeans because we don’t have to pay their sales tax.

    Please bring the Z2 to Verizon, Sony.

      I’m losing hope that the Z2 will make it to the U.S. (to Verizon) However, with Sony’s commitment to work with U.S. carriers in 2015, we might see a Z3.

      • M3D1T8R

        Yeah, I hope so. With my DNA recently rooted/rommed, I may be able to hold off until next year. Maybe..

        Tell me more about this commitment to work with U.S. carriers please? Have not heard of this and am interested.

      Z2 tablet is coming to Verizon.

      • M3D1T8R

        Yeah, that’s nice and hopefully a slight sign the actual Z2 might still come, rather than what they settled for instead.
