Nokia Details Wireless Charging

October 1, 2012 1 Comment

Nokia published a really interesting article today about Wireless Charging on their Lumia line for Windows Phone 8.

Nokia:

 transmitter coil is positioned at the bottom (L1) and the receiver coil (L2) is situated at the top and these coils are embedded into different electrical devices. L1 would be the Nokia Wireless Charging Plate and L2 would be the Nokia Lumia 920, for example.

An alternating current in the transmitter coil generates a magnetic field, which includes a voltage in the receiver coil. This voltage is then used to charge up the device.

Nokia has adopted the Qi (pronounced chi) standard in their wireless charging devices. Qi was created by the Wireless Power Consortium and is used by over 100 different companies around the world, and is the only globally adopted interface. Plus, because it’s used globally, you’ll be able to charge up wirelessly in different places around the world.

The article is pretty interesting and can be found here. If you really want to dig into Wireless Charging however, you should visit the Wireless Power Consortium
