CUTTING THE CORD FOR ALL PORTABLE DEVICES

In today's fast-paced world, we are heavily reliant on portable devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables. These devices have become an integral part of our lives, but they all share one common drawback: the need for multiple chargers and tangled cords. Thankfully, the European Commission has taken a significant step towards simplifying our lives with the introduction of the One Charger Rule.

In this blog, we will explore how Wi-Charge, the leader in commercially deployed far-field wireless technology, takes this initiative to the next level, eliminating the need for charging cords altogether.


The European Commission's One Charger Rule: A Step in the Right Direction


It’s quite common today that devices need their own special charger. Either USB, USB C, 3.5mm round jack, rectangular jack for a laptop, proprietary cables for your smartwatch and the list goes on. Ever wondered if this is really needed or maybe just another way to monetize on chargers as well?


Recognizing the widespread inconvenience caused by incompatible charging cables, which are different in shape, size, voltage etc. the European Commission has made a bold move to introduce a standardized charging solution for portable devices. The One Charger Rule aims to establish a universal charging system that can be used across various brands and device types. This initiative is set to reduce electronic waste, improve consumer convenience, and enhance energy efficiency.


Wi-Charge: Revolutionizing the Charging Experience


Wi-Charge, a pioneer in wireless power transfer technology, has been at the forefront of revolutionizing the way we charge our devices. With AirCord cutting-edge technology, Wi-Charge enables users to break free from the limitations of traditional charging methods. Let's delve into how Wi-Charge eliminates the need for charging cords and simplifies our lives.


1. Wireless Power Transfer


Wi-Charge employs advanced wireless power transfer technology to charge devices seamlessly, without the need for physical cords, cables, or going through the hassle of replacing batteries. By harnessing the power of infrared electromagnetic waves, Wi-Charge transmits energy over-the-air to compatible devices at distances of 30 ft or more.


This means your smartphone, tablet, or other portable devices will be charged by simply being in the same room as the charging source. No action is needed by you. The transmitter automatically locates the presence of all devices in the room that have compatible receivers mounted in them, and the receiver reports to the transmitter on the current state of its device’s battery charge. Meaning the level of charge relative to its full capacity. Following that, the transmitter charges the device as per a pre-set pattern.


2. Convenience and Simplicity


Imagine a world where you no longer need to hunt for specific charging cables or untangle a web of cords. With Wi-Charge, charging becomes effortless and hassle-free. You can place your devices anywhere within the charging range, and they will receive a steady stream of power without any physical connections. It's as simple as placing your device on a desk or nightstand and letting it charge wirelessly.


3. Versatility and Compatibility


Wi-Charge technology is designed to be universally compatible with a wide range of devices. Whether you have an electric toothbrush, smart door lock, digital display, smartphone, smartwatch, tablet or any other Wi-Charge enabled device, as long as it supports far-field wireless charging, Wi-Charge has got you covered. You can bid farewell to the clutter of different chargers for different devices and enjoy the convenience of a single charging solution for all your electronics.


4. Safe and Certified


Wi-Charge’s AirCord technology is certified safe by the FDA, FCC, and other regulatory approvals worldwide for consumers in all usage scenarios. Power is delivered only to the target device and does not bathe the environment with unwanted radiation. Furthermore, Wi-Charge powered devices are safer to use in wet environments since they are naturally made more waterproof without cables or outlets.


5. Future-Proof and Scalable


Wi-Charge's wireless charging technology is future-proof and scalable. As new devices and technologies emerge, Wi-Charge can adapt to support them seamlessly. This means you won't have to worry about your charging solution becoming outdated with each new device release. Wi-Charge is committed to staying ahead of the curve and ensuring that their technology meets the evolving needs of consumers.


Conclusion


The European Commission's One Charger Rule has set the stage for a more streamlined and efficient charging experience for portable devices. Wi-Charge takes this initiative to new heights with its innovative wireless power transfer technology. By eliminating the need for charging cords altogether, Wi-Charge offers unparalleled convenience, simplicity, and compatibility for all your devices. With Wi-Charge, you can bid farewell to the tangled mess of cords and embrace a wire-free charging future.


Embrace the wireless revolution with Wi-Charge and liberate your devices from the confines of charging cords. Say goodbye to cable clutter and enjoy the freedom of charging your devices effortlessly and efficiently.


AirCord™ wireless technology: The ultimate in far-field wireless power


Regardless of the device, Wi-Charge wants to make it compatible with AirCord™ wireless technology so that all devices can charge seamlessly without user intervention. Doing so will greatly reduce much e-waste from the world, by eliminating wall plugs, wires, and batteries dying prematurely.
