Like it or not, smart phones are a fact of life offshore. This, in turn, leads to problem of keeping said phones charged, which typically results in yet more wires running around your boat’s already cluttered nav station. To solve this problem, Scanstrut is now offering its ROKK Wireless system, which it describes as the world’s first IPX6 waterproof 12/24-volt wireless charging station. Created expressly for the marine environment, the ROKK is available in a number of different configurations depending on where the system is to be installed. A “hidden” option, for example, mimics the wood or fiberglass surface into which the charging head is installed, perfect for use in, say, a tabletop in the owner’s stateroom. A gray-toned flush head with an aggressive anti-skid surface, on the other hand, works best either in a pilothouse or even out on deck alongside the helm on a cockpit coaming. No matter what the style, simply lay your phone on the charging head to top off your batteries. A Rokk wireless “receiver patch” can be added to any phone that is not already enabled for wireless charging. From $64. Scanstrut, scanstrut.com
