Motorola Air Charging: the contactless wireless charging that promises to charge up to four devices at the same time
While wireless charging reaches remarkable heights such as 50 watts in the case of Realme’s MagDart, contactless wireless charging (or, as it is sometimes called, “true”) is being seen as small advertisements that at the moment are not they offer as solutions for sale. It is the case of Motorola Air Charging, the new proprietary wireless charging technology without the need to support the device on a base.
Previously to Motorola we have seen examples such as Xiaomi Mi Air Charge and OPPO Wireless Air Charging. Motorola made an advance by way of teaser in which he called his technology “Motorola One Hyper”, but precisely this coincides with one of his mobiles (the Moto One Hyper and also does not allow us to intuit what the technology is about like the other examples we have seen, so with that change by name the brand has presented it today in China.
A range of 3 meters and automatic blocking on detection of human beings
The Lenovo subsidiary has presented Motorola Air Charging through Weibo, despite the fact that the first today has presented news at a global level (new Yoga Slim and new tablets), through a poster that explains some of the characteristics. One of the striking is that it is capable of charging four devices at once. Something that did advance in the case of Xiaomi (without specifying how many) but not in the case of OPPO.
It works in a range of 3 meters and 100 degrees and a total of 1,600 antennas, which far exceeds the 144 antennas that Xiaomi’s theoretically required. These antennas, a proprietary chipset, an algorithm and the configuration of the network would be sufficient for the contactless load to work when entering the field of action.
According to the company, Motorola Air Changing is capable of charging even through paper, leather and similar materials. Although for safety they say they have incorporated a “biological monitoring technology” so that the load stops if there is a human presence. They have not given details in this regard, with which perhaps the antennas also have a temperature and / or movement sensor, although what is strange is that the load stops with the presence of a human being as there is no scientific evidence that the field created for loading is a hazard in some sense.
In an interview we conducted with José Gandica, Motorola’s Product Manager, he already told us about his work in this field with GuRu, a company that is also behind this development. But even so, Motorola is the third mobile brand to present its own technology, but also the third in do not say date of commercialization. So we will have to wait to know something else.
