Recharge any device, without plugging into any cable!

Recharge any device, without plugging into any cable!
SplashPower showed the SplashPad in the last CeBIT, in Germany. The SplashPad is a universal wireless charging platform which delivers power to mobile devices. The SplashPad is a portable flat surface less than 6mm thick powered from any electric outlet. Put as many devices as you can fit on it and charge up in a truly intuitive fashion. It can even be built into cars, desks and airplane tables!

Splashpower is based on inductive power transfer. Its key features are:

  • Multiple devices can be placed anywhere on the pad and charge up simultaneously
  • Efficient power transfer
  • Very low cost and hassle-free implementation
  • Intrinsic self-limiting receiver module with over-voltage protection

    This is really a neat idea. This kind of charger already exists for some devices (check the Braun/Oral B electric toothbrushes!) but using this technology for charging mobile devices is a very good idea. No more problems with different connectors, voltage, plugs. Just drop the mobile or pda on the pad, and wait until it's charged.
