In the near future, sitting all the way on one side of the sofa so you can use your phone while it’s awkwardly attached to a charger will soon be a thing of the past, as you can finally be able to charge away swimmingly without worrying about pulling away from your not so favorite cable charger.
Many companies, like HYVE, are working on bringing today’s generation over-the-air wireless charging to many of our beloved modern devices. And you know what that means? Your next phone, fitness band, laptop and/or tablet could get a serious dose of energy charge just by passively resting on the shelf as a paired device that is within range and in dire need of juicing up to bring your a-game on.
Keep in mind that the farther the things are placed from the power source, the slower they’ll hit 100%. Certain gadgets will charge faster when they’re closer, but with other devices — like keyboards or temperature sensors — they can surely absorb power at greater distances.
Soon, wireless charging pad speeds will double, maybe even triple, and over-the-air chargers will be available in the market.
Not only that, environmentally friendly cars, known as electrically powered ones, will be getting an upgrade as well. With the growing demand for smartphones and other computing devices in the 21st century, the market is also being driven by the scope of the technology for the field of wireless charging for many electric vehicles. From what our current sources say, the wireless charging market for electric vehicles in Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% by 2023.
