Banishing battery life anxiety

We’ve just helped a client launch a mobile phone charger that works on wireless technology.

SupaPowa® enables you to recharge the battery power of your handheld device on-the-go, wherever you are, and without having to plug it into a mains socket.

The product has been developed by QiConnect, the UK’s first wireless charging experts, based at The Portsmouth Technopole. The launch was held at Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower.

The technology is based on two coils: a transmitter and a receiver. An alternating current is passed through the transmitter coil, generating a magnetic field. This in turn induces a voltage in the receiver coil which can be used to power a mobile device or charge a battery.

The technology is already a reality in such devices as electric toothbrushes and surgically implanted devices, like artificial hearts.

Karen Murray, SupaPowa®’s business manager, said: “Battery life anxiety is a very real phenomenon. You can see your smartphone draining, especially if browsing on the internet, but you have no way of charging it up unless you connect to the mains power.

“And if you are away from home, stuck in traffic, or late for that vital appointment or pick-up, this can be extremely stressful.

“We’ve created some game-changing products that not only meet this challenge but could make traditional chargers redundant.

“Once you have wireless charging you’ll wonder how you lived without it.”
