‘Streaming’ Wireless Charging Demo’ed At CES

LAS VEGAS — The Alliance For Wireless Power (A4WP) demonstrated to the press its initial flexible charging working spec at a breakfast on Wednesday.

The group, made up of 30 member companies including Samsung, Qualcomm, Powermat and Texas Instruments, showed off charging surfaces that transfer power from a distance of up to 30mm through materials such as tabletops or car consoles.

The spec allows charging of multiple devices simultaneously without physical contact to the charging surface.

The A4WP has established a certification working committee and a branding committee.

A competing spatial wireless charging technology, from WiTricity and Alps Electric, is also being demonstrated at CES, in a suite at the Venetian.
