Last week I travelled to Taipei for Computex 2013 to demonstrate our latest Qi compatible wireless charging technology. What we presented was a wireless receiver that can be charged on multiple Qi transmitters, including our next generation wireless charging pad enabling multi-device charging and full spatial freedom with full Qi interoperability.
You can see the demo itself in this video which highlights our intention for it to become integrated directly into smartphones – as we have demonstrated in our Proxi Integrated Smartphone Solution previously.
However, what the demo and the underlying technology essentially shows is not only a pathway towards a better, more advanced Qi standard – but more importantly, the first step towards what everybody ultimately wants from wireless charging – interoperability.
It is something our customers have requested from us and we have set on the path to deliver – while maintaining the advantages that our Dynamic Harmonization Control technology provides.
Interoperability means that consumers have the ability and confidence to use multiple smartphones on any (Qi) compatible charging pad with the knowledge that it will not only charge, but do so efficiently and reliably. Unlike wired chargers, wireless by nature provides the opportunity to break free from model-specific charging connectors – people want to buy one pad which will charge all their phones, anywhere, without discrimination.
PowerbyProxi made a conscious choice to join the WPC in May to push the advancement of what we considered to be the leading wireless charging standard in the market (Qi) so that consumers can experience fully functional, flexible, convenient, and ultimately superior wireless charging sooner. We have only been a member for a few weeks but have already started demonstrating results that show how our multi-device and spatially free charging systems are interoperable with Qi.
You can be sure that as a member of the WPC we will continue to work with it’s members extend the specifications and the functionality of the current Qi standard while ensuring greater compatibility within the Qi ecosystem. Ultimately keeping the consumer our number 1 priority.
