The Sticker That Can Free You from Power Cables and Give Any Gadget Wireless Charging

Wireless Charging

Energysquare – Wireless charging Sticker

Though some of the gadgets tend to provide wireless charging, several of the products of Apple do not do so. However, there is a new smart sticker known as energysquare which tends to use wireless charging sticker that sticks towards the back of a smartphone, charging numerous devices on a single charging pad. The device, developed by a French company tends to charge various phone of any make simultaneously and at the same speed like a traditional wall charger.

The adhesive and thin stickers have been designed with two conductive dots which tend to directly connect to the battery carrying two conductive electrodes together with a connector that can be plugged in the charging socket of the devices needed to be charged. The charging pad comprise of conductive square which are controlled independently by the unique embedded system of the company.

When the users place their smartphone on the pad, the conductive dots of the stickers connect with two different conductive squares on the pad and the charging tends to start once the physical contact is sensed.The complete charging system is said to be water resistant and does not emit electromagnetic waves, which is compatible with most of the smartphones, inclusive of tablets. It is designed to resist the daily use by being smash proof.

Two Sizes – Square One/Square Two

The charging pads are made available in two sizes, namely Square One and Square Two, featuring `smart sleep mode’ in order to overcome any power waste when not in use. The company on its Kickstarter campaign had stated that `energysquare is a new generation of wireless chargers which will enable you to charge various devices at the same speed as classic chargers by just placing it on an ultra-tin pad.

No induction, or electromagnetic waves, we are using our own patented conductive charging technology’. Energysquare is on the lookout for $33,630 through the online campaign where $73,539 has been raised from 758 backers with 20 days remaining for the campaign. Consumers would be receiving one charging pad together with five stickers with a $44 pledge and the retails price is said to be $91 to $106.

No Loss of Energy

It is said the energysquare can charge any type of smartphone having a micro-USB, USB kind C or lightning connector. The energysquare team have stated that unlike the induction charging, there is no loss of energy and several of the devices can be charged on wide surfaces at the same time’. If one prefers to keep utilising a classic charger, you could just unplug the sticker temporally and then plug it back when done with. The energysquare has stated that the charging smartphones as well as the tablets is said to be only the beginning, and the more compatible objects tend to exist, the more value for you.

It adds that as their objective was to enable any connected device be energysquare compatible, they had created an open source standard which permitted any device manufacturer or technology enthusiastic to make energysquare compatible products. The project is said to be in its pre-industrialization stage where many working beta prototypes have been dispersed to real people, offices and families.

Intel Wireless Charging In a Bowl Expected Soon

Intel Wireless Charging Bowl
Everybody’s got attracted to the fact the vendors were announcing long battery life and various strategies for the electronics gadgets. This interested can be easily attributed to the fact that the customers are looking for easiest and less time consuming to keep their mobile gadgets and other smartphones up and running. Intel is looking to be the leader in technology giants and give the customers with the best solutions.

According to Intel Corporation's CEO, Brian Krzanich, the wireless charging bowl of Intel targeted for devices like smartphones is expected to be available in the market around end of 2014. This was stated in the MakerCon conference in New York. Brian Krzanich was selected as the CEO for the chipmaker in 2013.

Even though this announcement of the charging bowl was around January, this was among the first few ideas of the CEO which was introduced at International Consumer Electronics Show. According to the CEO, the idea of the charging bowl has received overwhelming response from the customers and tech shows and they are being constantly contacted by the customers to get more information about the device release date.

Although the price of the device has not been revealed, but according to the CEO the device will be expected to be launched by the holiday season. Brian also indicated that the company is currently working on number of projects and also gave road maps for the same.

As per the reports many products are at the final stages or have been revealed and some of them already hitting the retail stores.

Brian also disclosed that the concept behind the charging bowl is classic. He stated that he saw some of the employees of Intel sitting at a table and discussing the currently available wearable in the market and how it becomes irritating for them to put a plug to keep the device working and powered up. This led to the basic concept of developing something which can be used to charge the wearable devices without plugging or by throwing it on something.

Earlier this year, it was absolutely clear that Intel was working on something in the coming days which will make the people of the PC environment to enjoy charging as a wireless experience. Intel's senior vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group, Kirk Skaugen was able to demonstrate the process in which the wireless technology can be incorporated in a table which will have the capability to charge a number of devices at the same time. The wireless charging bowl is similar to any normal bowl one can find at home to put keys, loose coins and some other items.

According to Brian, one of the team member stated that she throws her jewelry in bowl once she reaches home. This gave them the idea to convert the chip bowl and make it into a charger. The team went to a nearby Wal-Mart, picked up a chip bowl and manipulated it to make a charger. This idea actually worked.

Intel joined A4WP on Wireless Charging!

Recently Intel had indicated that he had joined with Samsung and Qualcomm in the A4WP, one of three consortia manufacturers who develop featured wireless charging. The arrival of Intel is likely to weigh in the balance strong, and then Intel may indeed push its partners from the PC world to join. Even though the wireless charging is already present in terminals like the Nexus 4 at Google or the Lumia 820 and Nokia 920, the fact remains that it is still in status at least embryo. Indeed, every manufacturer wants to develop their own technology. Today, three consortia exist: the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and the Alliance For Wireless Power (A4WP). Each of the three has many members, as can be seen below. Popular Brands are present in two or three associations the example for it is LG or Samsung.
 WPC: 143 members
 PMA: 84 members
A4WP: 48 members

The first one works around the "Qi" technology, found for example on Nokia Lumia, but also on the Nexus 4 LG / Google. The second is developing the "Power 2.0". But both use the same principle while being incompatible that is charging by induction. The third one: The "Wireless Power Transfer" to charge multiple devices in parallel. Now Intel has in its ranks, goes a step further as it is a matter of charging operating induction and magnetic resonance. This technology has the soft name "Wireless Power Transfer" and permits charging several terminals simultaneously. But it is also about spreading more power: Max 20 W side of the transmitter, 6 W for the receiver. Intel had already demonstrated this principle at the last IDF in San Francisco where a Smartphone can be recharged wirelessly. But also a security software layer was necessary and operator Bluetooth, to avoid any phone starts approaching the principle of charging. The arrival of Intel, Will it make a difference? We are not so sure.

So far Intel has not given the direction he wishes to take, but the demonstrations so far during his IDF showed to where he is planning to go. We have to wait and see, whether his arrival in the A4WP will weigh in the balance or not. The giant Santa Clara often accustomed us to take time to impose his ideas. We remember the Ultrabook, the WiDi or before that Wi-Fi this was truly democratized when the demands made in its Centrino mobile stamped. In addition, Intel may well invite the many partners who gravitate around him to join him, which might have some weight in the balance. But we can also see the advance of the Wireless Power Consortium, which already has nearly 235 certified as a real leader to follow under the leadership of Nokia products. Ultimately, the technology seems much simpler and allows fewer things that developed by Intel and its partners.
