Wireless charging pad isn’t a new technology, Samsung has got that for its smartphones and wearables already but then Samsung devices doesn’t use all-metal body but glass, also the wireless charging power is low and the distance is short. Deploying such technology on smartphones with all-metal body has been a difficult task but that seems to have been achieved now. The Huawei Mate 9 has been spotted while charging on a wireless charging pad developed by Ningbo Goose electronic technology in China.
This discovery is coming as a bit of a surprise because the Huawei Mate 9 does not feature support for wireless charging. This is only a third party accessory for the Mate 9 that lets users access this function. From the pictures, the Mate 9 can be seen to be charging eve though it is not connected via its charging port.
The accessories comprises a flat wireless charging pad, an ultra-thin USB Type-C interface, a wireless charging receiver and a power adapter for the wireless pad. The device works perfectly as long as the wireless charging receiver is attached to the back of the phone and the Type-C interface is attached to the wireless charging pad.
The wireless charging pad deploys Wi-Po magnetic resonance wireless charging technology and can also charge two devices simultaneously within a range of up to 50mm. Whereas the ordinary wireless charger uses magnetic induction technology with low power transmission and within a maximum range of just around 5mm. The range though might be meaningless since you still have to attach the wireless charging receiver to the back of the phone.
By the way the wireless charging pad can be used to charge mobile phones, smart wearable devices, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and other gadgets.
