WiTricity wireless charging system builds on Dell Laptops




WiTricity, a company specializing in wireless charging, has at Computex Dell laptops shown that charge wirelessly when placed on a charging pad that purpose. The applied loading technique makes use of a magnetic field.

The fed shown Dell laptops at Computex about 30 watts of wirelessly transmitted energy. Cnet writes that said the CEO of WiTricity WiTricity which uses a technique that allows them to properly focus the magnetic field. Also, it should be possible to integrate the system into marble or wooden surfaces, such as tables and kitchens. This would allow users laptops can recharge by laying them on the table.

The technique with the magnetic field is different than that of the competing standard Qi of the Wireless Power Consortium. Which makes use of electromagnetic induction between two coils. In magnetic resonance, it is not necessary that a device makes direct contact with the loading surface and then the positioning needs to be less precise.

WiTricity is a member of the AirFuel alliance, an alliance formed late last year by the Alliance for Wireless Power and the Power Matters Alliance. The AirFuel alliance consists of 195 companies, and set itself the goal of making the magnetic resonance technique and induction compatible.

WiTricity focuses on more industries, including automotive, military, industrial, medical and consumer electronics. For cars, the company thinks it is useful when wireless loaded can be, a medical device may be useful as something placed deep inside the body, yet can be loaded. In industry think the business to places that are hard to reach places or with conditions that any construction is very difficult with a cable.

For the military, the company has devised a variety of applications, such as wireless charging all kinds of equipment a soldier now carries with him such as night vision. Whether and when Dell laptops with this technology will actually bring out is not known.
