The concept of wireless charging has been quite in vogue in recent times. Products like wireless couplers and chargers were out by the bounty in 2012. However that was 2012. In 2013 the next thing to look out for in wireless charging is here, via Fulton innovation. Fulton Innovation is a long standing and old player in the wireless charging devices market. At CES 2013 Fulton Innovation has displayed a technology that enables charging your device with wireless technology and without any power source. How? Well using another device is how this feat is possible.
Fulton Innovation displayed the ecoupled technology to power up your device by transferring charge from another device. The only catch line is that the corresponding devices must be Qi enabled. Qi is the international standard for wireless charging that has been developed by an international consortium of companies.
One of the most time changing technologies is what I would like to brand any wireless charging technologies as. Times have indeed changed from the days when chargers used to be stocky plugins and coiled wires to wireless charging via docks and couplers in 2012. In this rush of next generation technologies that will govern our lives next, wireless technology even without power sources is something that is definitely going to touch a chord. Especially with people like me who use their devices so extensively as to discharge them off very fast. In cases where we donot have power sockets or outlets transferring charges between devices, as far as the average consumer is concerned will be a revolution. This section with reference to CES 2013 which is currently ongoing and is the world’s largest consumer electronics show, therefore unravels this technology with the potential and definitive assurance to be one of the technologies to accessorize all our electronic devices soon.
How e-coupled Works?
eCoupled is an intelligent wireless power. It removes the age-old constraints of inductive coupling (magnetically induced flow of current). It has an intelligent control system. eCoupled can adapt to meet the specific needs of each device it powers by communicating with it in real time. eCoupled assesses and determines not only power needs but also factors in battery or device age and charging lifecycles. It provides only the power that is required to maintain optimal safety and efficiency.
According to Fulton Innovation the advantages of eCoupled are far-reaching. It is: Convenient, Safe, Efficient and Green. eCoupled is also universal. Wherever you are in the world and whatever electronic device you have, eCoupled will speak the same universal language too via the Qi standard.
Where It Would Work Out?
This feature presentation is all about showing how wireless device to device charging is one of the revolutions that our lives will revolve around in the future. Let me therefore list out the areas where this technology is definite to have an impact. These areas have been well explained by ecoupled technology in the following words:
Curated from ecoupled:
eCoupled will one day integrate into the walls and surfaces of your home. If you’re watching the big game, the TV won’t need to be plugged in. Power will be delivered wirelessly via the eCoupled-enabled wall. In the kitchen, a multipurpose countertop will allow you to mix, chop, blend and boil all on the same powered surface. There will be no cords to plug in, or outlets to worry about. An eCoupled-enabled home is just plain safe.
Soon your vehicle, train, or bus ride will have eCoupled on board. While you’re going places, eCoupled will power and charge your mobile device, laptop, or MP3 player. eCoupled is intelligent power. So devices utilizing it only draw power on an as-needed basis. eCoupled is remarkably efficient.
eCoupled intelligent wireless power streamlines the workplace by never requiring you to plug in for power. eCoupled is so smart that, when no devices are detected, it automatically stops the supply of electricity to the charging area. Most traditional power sources continue to supply electricity whether devices are plugged in or not. With eCoupled, it’s easy being green.
With eCoupled in our lives, laptops won’t shutdown halfway over the Atlantic Ocean. Seat trays will be integrated with our wireless charging technology. You won’t need to search for an outlet, or lug around an assortment of chargers and adaptors for your laptop, mobile phone, digital camera and other devices. And during your hotel stay, the furniture in your room will be eCoupled-enabled. Place a device on one and it will power up or recharge. Plus, no matter where you travel, eCoupled speaks the universal language of wireless power. eCoupled supports a universal standard.
When I started writing about ecoupled technology it was because it is one of the coolest technologies that have been unveiled at CES 2013 till now. But by the time I end this feature, the reason I am going to be following this technology is because it promises to change the future, a future wherein devices charge other devices without cables and without any couplers.
