Mojo Mobility develops Near Field Power method to charge multiple devices at once
How would you like to walk into your living room one day and immediately be able to charge all the drained mobile devices you carry without removing them from your pocket? You’d like that to be possible, now wouldn’t you?
With new technology developed by Silicon Valley-based venture firm Mojo Mobility, Inc., now you still can’t, but rest assured that things are being done to make this new method an option for the future. They’re calling it NFP, or Near Field Power, and intends to make it available for use in mobile phones, headsets and mobile music players.
How does Near Field Power work? Two coils are used in both transmitting and receiving electric power between mobile devices and a sheet-type charger. The first photo shows us that more than one mobile device can be charged at the same time.
Mojo says their currently working prototype produces 2.5W to 4W of electricity, which makes it ideal for use in powering devices such as mobile phones. It is also said the electric power transmission efficiency is higher than 70%.
While it would be a geek’s dream to have such technology embedded inside his bedroom’s wall, it would be much more feasible to have the receiving coils installed in future mobile phones that pair with the sheet-type chargers. Armed with more than 15 patents on related technologies, Mojo plans to take this to mobile device manufacturers and see what they make of it.
