A4WP announces wireless charging up to 50 watts for mobile devices

The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) has introduced multi device wireless charging solution for mobile devices at the Computex. The company’s Rezence magnetic resonance charging technology is offering wireless charging up to 50 watts for mobile devices like laptop, smartphones and tablets.

The Rezence brand is backed by hundreds of consumer device makers and chip companies like Lenovo, Hon Hai (Foxconn), Fujitso, Logitech, Panasonic and others. A4WP claims that its Rezence technology delivers wireless power solutions in the 1-50W range whereas other wireless charging solutions deliver power in the 10-15 watt range. Moreover, Rezence also supports wireless charging of multiple devices with differing power requirements on the same charging surface which is a unique to magnetic resonance technologies.

As highlighted by A4WP member companies at Computex, wireless power is about more than charging a phone on a pad. Flexibility, in both power and placement, are key to expanding wireless charging beyond a niche. A4WP member companies are driving the expansion of the Rezence specification to enable new usage models. Extending Rezence to include laptops, tablets and peripherals is a necessary step towards a wire-free and universal charging experience for everyone”, said Kamil Grajski, President, Alliance for Wireless Power in an official release.

Intel, Broadcom, MediaTek, PowerWoW and iCirround are other members of A4WP. Last week, Broadcom released multi-standard wireless charging chipset for smartphones. Wireless charging is gradually becoming one of the most important element of the smartphone ecosystem.
