Mi Air Charge technology was launched by Xiaomi, a remote charging technology that can charge multiple devices simultaneously, according to the company, and can recharge a smartphone that is being used when walking around.
In a blog post, the organization explains how the technology operates. The transmitter looks very huge, as big as maybe a side-table in the living room next to a couch. A 5W charge can be delivered wirelessly to a smartphone by the transmitter.
The self-developed isolated charging pile of Xiaomi has built-in five phase interference antennas that can accurately detect the smartphone’s location.
By beamforming, a phase control array composed of 144 antennas transmits millimeter-wide waves directly to the handset.
Xiaomi’s remote charging technology can charge multiple devices with a 5W current within a range of “several meters” in its current state. Xiaomi states that the charging performance of physical objects does not decrease, although this must have some caveats.
Xiaomi stated that smartwatches, fitness bands and other wearables will ultimately be compliant with its Mi Air Charge tech.
Our living room equipment will soon be based on a wireless power supply design, totally free of wires, making our living rooms fully wireless, like speakers, desk lamps, and other tiny smart home items.
