New Wireless Charging Deals Push Technology Forward

05 June 2015

Intel has announced at Computex 2015 in Taipei that it will partner with accessory-maker Targus to develop Rezence standard wireless charging solutions, and also recently announced an agreement with Haier (Chinese consumer electronics and home appliances manufacturer) to roll out wireless charging infrastructure across China later in 2015, including restaurants, hotels, cafés and airports.

Meanwhile, in a joint press release between the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA), it was announced on Monday June 1 that a merger agreement between the two alliances has been signed. This follows the announcement of the intention to merge at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2015. A4WP president Dr. Kamil Grajski and PMA president Ron Resnick will remain in executive positions as chairman and president, respectively.

The newly merged alliance will be focusing on increasing awareness of wireless charging and providing a combined product roadmap for the two technologies—the tightly coupled inductive solution from PMA, and the loosely coupled resonant solution from A4WP (Rezence).
