Following in Chrysler’s footsteps, General Motors has filed for a trademark on the name ‘Dockspot,’ which will adorn the company’s upcoming wireless charging system for hand-held devices.

The system works by electrifying one of the storage bins in a vehicle, allowing properly equipped devices to receive wireless power. A special case must be on the device in question, but this is something that would likely by included by the automaker.

Exactly which car this technology will debut in is still unknown, although a Cadillac or Buick would make the most sense due to the premium nature of each brand. That being said, Chrysler is debuting its wireless charging system in the new Dodge Dart, which suggests that GM could bring it out in a Chevy to compete.
