Smartphone in gold, check. Headphones in gold, check. Now, what else do you need to make this a complete set? Chargers, of course! You could get yourself one that is crafted in the most luxurious materials: 18k yellow gold and vicuna wool. 

Vicuna wool has been touted to be the “Golden Fleece of the Andes” and is worshipped by the Inca civilisation. Only a mere 0.5kg of the wool is produced every year and a yard of this precious wool could command a price tag amounting to thousands of dollars. And now, it wraps around this limited edition Valet 3 wireless charger from Volonic.

On the interior, the Valet 3 is powered by Aira’s FreePower technology that uses an 18 coil matrix, allowing you to place your device anywhere on the surface to charge—you can have up to three devices charging simultaneously.

Getting this extravagant piece of technology will set you back about US$250,000. For more information or if you are intending to buying one for yourself or as a gift, you can visit the official Volonic website here.
