Xiaomi has launched a remote charging technology called the Mi Air Charge which can simultaneously charge multiple devices while being used when walking around.
The Chinese technology giant said the remote charging technology can charge multiple devices with a 5W current within a range of “several meters” in its current state.
Xiaomi further states that the charging performance of physical objects does not decrease, although this must have some caveats.
In a blog post, the organization explains how the technology operates:
“The transmitter looks very huge, as big as maybe a side-table in the living room next to a couch. A 5W charge can be delivered wirelessly to a smartphone by the transmitter.
The self-developed isolated charging pile of Xiaomi has built-in five phase interference antennas that can accurately detect the smartphone’s location.
By beamforming, a phase control array composed of 144 antennas transmits millimeter-wide waves directly to the handset.”
Xiaomi stated that other devices like smartwatches, fitness bands and other wearables will ultimately be compliant with its Mi Air Charge tech.
The organisation further said that living room equipment will soon be based on a wireless power supply design, totally free of wires, making our living rooms fully wireless, like speakers, desk lamps, and other tiny smart home items
However for the Mi Air Charge device, no release date has been given and it is not known whether such a technology will ever make it to the consumer market.
