Energous has introduced a new DA2223 receiver for wireless charging. It differs from its predecessors by its miniature size – almost 2 cm in height and width, and its thickness is only 0.5 cm.
The creators of the chip position it primarily for small devices – wireless headphones, watches and the like. In addition, this technology will help to realize the work of a full-fledged wireless charging, when the device does not need to be put on a charging station, but can be placed anywhere in the room. Modern Qi-charging requires direct contact.
According to rumors, Energous helps Apple in the implementation of wireless charging in the latest smartphones, reports Digital Trends. In addition, the company this year introduced the technology Wireless Charging 2.0 – a special station that charges all devices around at a distance of 5 meters.
Such a charge has not yet reached mass sales. The representative of the company Energous said that the device with the new chip will appear in 2019. Perhaps then real wireless charging will become available to everyone.
