The solution, which offers multi-device charging and full spatial freedom, is also expandable to power tablets up to 15 W, will be demonstrated at Computex 2014 in Taipei this week.
PowerbyProxi’s integrated approach provides improvements compared with the 3.5 W to 5 W systems being offered today, by enabling high-speed wireless charging of multiple mobile devices. The system is designed to deliver up to 15 W of power to a single tablet, or multiple smartphones and phablets. Ultimately this will be backwards compatible with the Wireless Power Consortium’s (WPC) Qi standard and forward compatible to resonant v1.2.
“We continue to drive advances in wireless charging technology,” said Greg Cross, CEO of PowerbyProxi. “Our contributions to the future specification of the Qi 1.2 standard, will enable better performance and more convenient solutions for consumers.”
For the first time, PowerbyProxi will also demo a wireless charging pad for mobile devices that enables vertical height charging of up to 30 mm. The functioning z height distance will enable charging capabilities to be integrated into public locations like restaurants and hotels, as well as furniture and countertops. Charging can occur through materials including wood, plastic and composites along with the ability to charge multiple devices with full spatial freedom.
PowerbyProxi’s new bowl transmitter with 3D charging technology has been designed to charge smaller, personal devices including wearables and devices using AA batteries. Devices can be placed in any position or orientation, even on top of each other. The bowl, which measures 100 mm in diameter, offers a sleek design for office or bedside and complements PowerbyProxi’s larger “family” charging box, which can accommodate multiple larger devices such as gaming controllers, cameras or toys.
