Today, we still rely on wired charging for our phones, tablets, and laptops. Wi-Charge is working on a long-range wireless charging system that will send power to your device wherever it is in the room, no cords or careful placement on a charging mat needed.
Excitingly, the company has taken a crucial step toward making that future a reality. Long range wireless charging system have the Wi-charge system that charges you device virtually from anywhere in the room.
It is the same concept as Wi-Fi but it is mainly restricted for charging. This means, a user needs to no more a charger panic and no cords. It charges at a rate of up to 10 metres indoors. Infrared technology makes the device or technology works.
Although the charging is slower, it happens while you are busy doing other things. The charging system will happen 24/7 without you even knowing that it is. Wi-Charge has been demonstrating its technology for years, progressively increasing the power delivered and reducing the cost of the hardware.
The technology operates in what’s called line-of-sight, so there’s no need to place a Wi-Charge compatible device on or near a special pad, it just needs to be out of your pocket or drawer and visible to the transmitter.
At first, Wi-Charge will rely on dongles or special cases attached to your device to receive a charge, which comes from charging stations that double as lamps. In the future, Wi-Charge wants light fixtures in buildings to have the system already installed. Similarly, Wi-Charge receivers will be fitted inside devices, so no external parts will be needed to charge wirelessly.
