Can we use Ambient WiFi to Charge our cellphones?

with 3 comments

wireless-energyWe all posses smartphones and/or tablets and we are consciously aware of how much of backup each one of them is capable of providing. We are also aware of the new “Qi” standard charging to wirelessly charge our cellphone – although slow but this does get the work done.

However i beg to differ, i still believe that Qi is not true wire-less charging as you still have to plug the charger into the wall and the device has to be stationary and you possibly can’t get any more freedom than you would get with a standard wall charger.

We do know that each one of us, even as you read this are being exposed to multiple signals – WiFi signals,Radio signals,Cellphone signals,etc. and the principle behind all these is that they travel by using charged particles. Using such many more concepts, folks of the Duke university have setup an experiment to see if they can truly making the process of charging gadgets – wireless.

Verizon’s LG G2 to feature exclusive wireless charging capabilities

without comments

lg-g2-wireless-charging

With LG having remained mum on the subject of wireless charging when they launched the LG G2 last week, Verizon has stepped up and claim that the Verizon-branded LG G2 features wireless charging exclusively to them, most likely only in the US.

The LG G2 pre-order page on Verizon’s website shows off their own branded LG G2 and mentions that it features wireless charging exclusively, it also shows a redesigned rear for the Verizon LG G2 which is more than likely a confirmation to their claim. It remains to be seen whether this exclusivity extends only to the US or globally, especially since wireless charging is yet to catch on in the mass market. The LG G2 features a speedy 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 13MP camera with OIS, to name but a few and aims to steal some market share away from the likes of Samsung.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on wireless charging, voice your opinion below!
