WiTricity's technology boasts an efficiency of over 90 percent, and you can charge up multiple devices with a single transmitter. In terms of power output, WiTricity already has solutions providing as little power as 10W for portable devices, all the way up to 6kW for cars; and it's prepping for 20kW support for even bigger applications.
"At Intel, we have a vision to eliminate all wires from all of our platforms. This agreement is a major step in the right direction enabling our companies to work together to deliver the next generation of devices that eliminate the need for power cords," said Intel Vice President and General Manager of User Experience.
The A4WP's Rezence near-field resonant technology offers benefits including simultaneous charging of multiple devices with differing power requirements, 'spatial freedom' for additional reach in the z-direction, and eliminating the hassle of accurate coil alignment - all on a single charging surface or in a charging region.
With Rezence coming into shape and Intel partnering with WiTricity, we can expect the first WiTricity-powered laptops and tablets to arrive by as early as end of this year.
