Mobile phone manufacturer Motorola has released a teaser for its new charging technology, which will be revealed soon at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in Las Vegas, USA, this week.
The technology, as per Motorola, will rid users of wall chargers and a bunch of cables that keep tangling our lives. The teaser video, which shows a wall charger crying because it isn’t being used, surely points at a much more efficient charging technology than we have seen in the past.
Wireless chargers are not new as products like Power Mat have been around for quite a long time now. Power Mat uses induction based charging technology, or electromagnetic waves that transmit current to recharge batteries. Although not very efficient, this technology lives up to its reputation in terms of wirelessly charging devices like mobile phones.
Another form of wireless charging or current transfer was invented by a company called WiTricity, which managed to overcome the limitations of inductive charging by making electricity available over greater, wire-free distances. Both Intel and Toyota have showed keen interest in this technology and it hence proves its technical prowess over existing technologies.
What Motorola will come up with in this regard still remains a big mystery but it will soon be unveiled at the Motorola press conference during CES.
