What is Inductive Charging?

Inductive charging is a means of creating an alternating electromagnetic field to safely and efficiently transfer energy between a transmitter unit and a receiver unit, both of which contain an induction coil. When placed in close proximity to the transmitter, the receiver unit receives the electromagnetic field and converts into power. Using in-band signalling to communicate, the two units are able to regulate power levels and manage the charging.

SmartInductive™ Technology

SmartInductive™ technology enables magnetic induction fields to be transferred over greater distances, while maintaining compatibility with existing wireless charging technologies on the market.

Using a unique coil structure and advanced signal processing, SmartInductive™ technology enables highly efficient and safe transfer of up to 40W of power (expandable to 90W on future designs) through surfaces up to 1.5 inches thick. With higher power capabilities, the SmartInductive™ technology is built to power a wide range of devices, from headsets to laptops.
