Other members of A4WP are Intel, Samsung, LG, SanDisk and other names, but Dell is the first PC maker to join the group. A4WP's primary goal is standardize Rezence, a wireless power transfer method that uses near-field magnetic tech which has the ability to charge multiple device at the same time.

Its not clear if wireless charging is perfected for devices such as notebooks, let alone to see Dell portable systems with wireless charging. Glen Robson, Dell VP and CTO said,"The development of magnetic resonance technology will improve the customer experience when it comes to wireless charging and bring the capability into more homes and businesses over the next few years. We are excited to work with other industry leaders in the A4WP to deliver on the promise of easy, flexible wireless charging across an array of mobile devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops."
