You can now get a benchtop that charges your phone when you place it on the bench. No plugs, no docking station and no wires. It just charges as if by magic.
The Corian Wireless Charging Surface can replace cables and power points to create user-friendly work and living areas. It is a practical and simple to install technology solution for anywhere a smart device may want to be recharged wirelessly. You could use it in multiple locations throughout your home or office.
Enabled by a unit that uses induction technology, the Corian Wireless Charging Surface has a transmitter hidden under the surface, delivering the charge directly through the Corian. Nothing is visible from above the benchtop.
Wireless power, also known as inductive coupling, uses narrow magnetic fields that are a natural part of how electrical current moves through wires. It starts by creating a magnetic field around a hidden electrical coil. The receiving device has a hidden coil that can receive the magnetic energy created, thereby transferring power wirelessly.
The phone charges and stops when your device has reached maximum battery capacity. The phone will charge at about the same speed it would on a wired charger.
So if you are tired of the kids taking you charger, here is your solution!
