SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21, 2015 /CNW/ -- ConvenientPower today announced the world's first wireless charging transmitter pad designed specifically to charge mobile devices with metal backs. Featuring Qualcomm® WiPower™, a wireless charging technology licensed by Qualcomm Incorporated which enables the wireless charging of devices with metal exteriors, ConvenientPower's "WoWme" pad will charge metal and non-metal devices, allowing phone designers the choice to incorporate metal and wireless charging to optimize the user experience and convenience.
ConvenientPower has also worked closely with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, to advance the state of resonant-based wireless charging of devices. This milestone showcases the advancements taking place within the growing wireless charging industry as wirelessly charging metal smartphones is becoming more important as phone designers previously had to choose between a premium phone incorporating metal or wireless charging.
"Mobile devices which are metal-encased or incorporate metal in their design can now be wirelessly charged - a significant breakthrough for convenient charging from our close collaboration with Qualcomm. This accelerates the range of design and waterproof possibilities for mobile electronics such as wearables, smartphones and computing devices. Greater differentiation in user experience and product feel can be delivered," said Camille Tang, President and Co-Founder, ConvenientPower.
"We appreciate the valuable tools and expertise delivered by ConvenientPower," said Steve Pazol, General Manager of wireless charging, Qualcomm Incorporated. "We never anticipated the level of excitement this would generate. Having ConvenientPower follow up so quickly with a companion solution gets this technology that much closer to consumers."
The new WoWme wireless charging pad maintains all the properties of other Rezence certified transmitters, including the ability to charge multiple devices with various power requirements, simultaneously, through surfaces. This 10 watt wireless charger can charge multiple devices.
WiPower is designed to support flexible wireless power for smartphones, tablets and other consumer electronics devices, allowing OEMs and vertical markets (automotive, furniture, hospitality) to deploy the technology into different surfaces/devices in a way that is efficient and simple to use.
ConvenientPower is a global leader in wireless power technology and innovation. Its proven intellectual property and commercialization expertise has delivered 21 world firsts in wireless power charging including first Apple-certified "Made For iPhone" and "Over-The-Air" wireless charging products, the first in-car wireless charging in Toyota cars and the first integration of compatible wireless charging in furniture, medical and office building applications.
