Motorola has partnered with GuRu Wireless for wireless charging solutions, according to a report by The Next Web. Motorola isn’t the first company to think about wireless charging equipment how Xiaomi showcased this technology in a concept video showing a phone wirelessly charging in a room.
According to the report, GuRu Wireless has proprietary wireless charging technology that uses millimeter wave (mmWave) integrated circuits, and claims that its RF lens solutions “can charge devices up to 9.14 meters away from a single transmitter. “at a power range of 5W-10W. It’s not very fast charging, but as this is the first time such technology has been implemented, we can hope that charging will be faster after wireless charging becomes consumer friendly.” .
There is no official word from Motorola about the use of wireless charging technology in its future devices. It’s early days for technology to move from concept to adoption for consumer devices. Wireless charging is not like normal charging, where you plug in a phone charger or put your phone over the charger to get the job done. If you move around the room with the device and hope it will charge at the same time, a device tracking mechanism must be in place, and there are regulations that must also be followed when charging a device over the air. The tech feels cool, but would it be safe enough for everyday, regular use? That is an obstacle that must be overcome.
