Wi-Charge: 6 Months of Industry Recognition in Review04 April 2018
Wi-Charge is the first company to deliver long-range wireless power that can effectively charge phones across the room. Over the past 6 months we’ve been demonstrating technology that will change the way we live with our devices. Fortunately, the market has noticed.
Fast-forward to 2018 and Wi-Charge is again being honored, this time at the largest consumer electronics event in the world. At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Wi-Charge’s wireless charging technology won the prestigious CES 2018 Innovation Award in the Smart Energy Product category. The award recognizes cutting-edge tech products and services for their innovative design and engineering.
CES Innovation Award entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, along with how the product directly compares to others in the marketplace. Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect inspired design in some of the most cutting-edge tech products and services coming to market.
Wi-Charge stands out in the wireless power space by utilizing infrared beams (similar to your TV remote) to enable room-scale wireless power coverage that is completely safe. We are the only company to beam wireless power at a distance, in amounts that deliver on the expectation for charging – wired or not. If it takes hours for your phone to charge and it can’t be moved more than a few inches from the charger during the time, where’s the benefit of wireless charging? Wi-Charge allows users to be 10 to 15 feet away from charging sources and will automatically starts charging your devices.
2017 was a big year for our company, and in 2018 Wi-Charge shows no signs of slowing down. We’re going to continue to push the boundaries of wireless charging and to engage new partners to bring this incredible innovation to more people.
