The WildCharge Wireless Charger tech has been around for a while, but now it looks as though they’re just about to expand the product range out to include Blackberry and iPhone handsets in the roster. The idea is you slap a charger sleeve onto your device and from then on all you have to do is drop it onto their special charging mat to power up. No cables, no mess.
There’s pros and cons of course, and the whole wireless charging sector has been fraught of late, with entrants dropping like flies, but maybe this is the company to win through. It’s a shame they started with the Motorola Razor handset I guess. Ah well, hindsight is 20/20 vision as they say. Priced at around $89.99.
When an enabled electronic device such as a cell phone is placed on the WildCharger pad, electrical contacts on the device’ adapter come in direct contact with the pad’s surface. Power is then transferred from the energized pad’s surface to the cell phone. Such conductive solution provides efficient and safe power transfer (basically, 100% efficiency!) without generating harmful radiation or magnetic fields. The geometries of the surface and device contacts are designed such that in any position the device is placed on the surface a closed electrical circuit can be formed between the surface and the device, powering and charging the device. We call these “free positioning” geometries.
