In-Flight Charging

Commercial airlines carry a lot of wires to the seats. Passengers expect LCD screens, USB ports for charging and electrical outlets. As convenient as these are, a significant number of power lines lead to each passenger seat, from the head to the tail end of the plane. These add to the overall weight of the plane and thus to its fuel consumption?

Is there a better way?

The current trend is to eliminate the LCD screens and provide WiFi and entertainment directly to smartphones and tablets. Now, there is a need to charge them. Installing Wi-Charge transmitters above the seats could deliver several benefits:

  • Eliminate wires to the seats
  • Reduce weight and fuel consumption of the plane
  • Simplify the installation of new seats
  • Provide flexible charging solutions to customers.
