Forget chargers, recharge phones the wireless way

London: How often have you forgotten your mobile chargers and been in trouble unable to charge your mobile at crucial moments? Now disregard the need to remember your chargers, Japanese technology company Fujitsu has developed a system capable of charging multiple portable electronic devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras and laptop computers without the need for cable connections simultaneously.The new prototype system unveiled by Fujitsu at an Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers conference at Osaka Prefecture University will also enable electric car users to charge their vehicles with the help of this technology. Fujitsu’s technology, averted to be the first of its kind works on the foundation of the transmission of electricity using magnetic fields between the charger and the electronic device and will support wireless charging at distances of up to several meters and aims at installing public "charging spots" on the streets in order to enable easy charging around the clock.
Products incorporating the new wireless charging system will be commercially available by early 2012 as stated by scientists at Fujitsu Laboratories though they did not mention anything about its cost. "This technology paves the way to integrating compact wireless charging functions into mobile phones and enabling multiple portable devices to be charged simultaneously without any restrictions on their position with respect to the charger," as the company was quoted by the Telegraph in a statement.
