Today (Friday), Xiaomi unveiled a brand new method of charging called Mi Air Charge Technology that is capable of charging devices “within a radius of several metres.”
Currently, Xiaomi’s remote charging technology is capable of charging a 5-watt remote charge for a single device.
“Mi Air Charge Technology enables users to remotely charge electronic devices without any cables or wireless charging stands. Today, we enter a true wireless charging era,” Xiaomi said in a statement
In addition, several devices can also be charged at the same time (each device supports 5 watts) and even physical barriers do not limit charging efficiency.
In the near future, living room appliances will all be based on a wireless power supply design, fully wireless, making our living rooms truly wireless.
How is the Xiaomi Mi Air Charge going to work?
Remote charging of Xiaomi lies in space positioning and transmission of electricity.
The self-developed isolated charging pile of Xiaomi has built-in five-phase interference antennas that can precisely detect the smartphone’s location.
Via beam formation, a phase control array comprising 144 antennas transmits millimeter-wide waves directly to the handset.
Xiaomi’s self-developed miniaturized antenna array with integrated beacon antenna broadcasts location information with low power consumption on the smartphone side.
In order to transform the sci-fi charging experience into fact, the receiving antenna array consisting of 14 antennas transforms the millimeter wave signal generated by the charging pile into electric energy via the rectifier circuit.
On the smartphone side, Xiaomi has also created a miniaturized antenna array with built-in “beacon antenna” and “receiving antenna array”
Smart watches, bracelets and other wearable devices will also be able to work with Xiaomi’s self-developed space isolation charging technology in the near future.
