Pi Charging is the world's first contactless, wireless charger for smartphones and tablets. Pi charges devices within a 1ft range in any orientation using magnetic resonance technology.
MashableThe Silicon Valley start-up Pi says they have found a way to charge phones and tablets by simply placing the devices near its cone-like charger. If the company's claims are true, the Pi charger would be the world's first contactless charger.
EngadgetThe device is called, well, Pi, and the company says it's the first-ever contactless wireless charging product to make it to market. It's shaped like a lampshade, or a cone with its tip cut off. It uses resonant induction, which is the same tech that Qi uses, but with a special beam forming algorithm that lets them shape and direct magnetic fields around the… See more
TechCrunchWireless charging isn't new - but with the new iPhones picking it up as a feature, it's about to get a huge boost in visibility. But wireless charging is still pretty limited, particularly in terms of where your device can be while pulling a charge.
Digital TrendsIf you're looking for a truly wireless way to charge your iPhone, the Pi may be your best bet. For the most part, wireless charging standards like Qi are a bit of a misnomer - they aren't "wireless" in the sense that they require a plugged-in charger.
CNET FranceCela fait un moment que les Galaxy S sont compatibles avec la recharge sans fil par induction. Il faut dire que la technologie n'est pas nouvelle. Bien qu'elle tende aujourd'hui à se démocratiser dans la téléphonie ( Apple s'y est enfin mis avec ses derniers iPhone), le grand public la connait surtout pour son utilisation au sein des plaques de cuisson.
Android AuthorityPi can wirelessly charge devices located up to one foot away - so you can use and charge them at the same time.
SlashGearLike with almost anything, Apple's adoption of an existing technology is a sure way to boost said technology (and rewrite history in the process). This year, it's wireless charging, thanks to the iPhone X. But while wireless charging promises the convenience of having no wires, it doesn't exactly deliver complete freedom.
MacrumorsWith the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple added inductive wireless charging support to its mobile devices for the first time. While the feature brought Apple's phones up to speed with existing Qi-compatible charging standards, the announcement fell short of some expectations that this year Apple would introduce technology allowing iPhones to be pow… See more
