Duracell reveals wireless charger
- 22 August, 2009 04:36
Battery manufacturer Duracell have revealed their very own wireless charging device, dubbed 'myGrid'.
The myGrid claims to be as fast as standard 'old fashioned' wired charging and can power a variety of gadgets wirelessly, including handsets from Nokia, Motorola, Blackberry and Apple, it can also support a range of MP3 players.
The super thin charge pad knows when a compatible device is placed on it, instantly beginning the charge, the pad will then turn off automatically when nothing is present.
Various sources are speculating that this technology has been licensed from WildCharge, who released their extremely similar wire-free solution earlier in the year. This news comes shortly after the Wireless Power Consortium announced that they were edging closer to finalizing an industry standard for wireless power.
The myGrid is due for release in October, although no price has been announced.
