Apple invests in Energous, a company that deals with wireless charging on distance. And the head of this startup managed to hint that the iPhone will receive this technology already in 2017.
And today at iPhones.ru gathered at least five questions about this feature of the smartphone. They remain unanswered. And I think wireless charging will not be useful to iPhone 8 owners at all.
How expensive will the charging equipment be
In the first place in the case of wireless charging at a distance, the expected cost of equipment goes. And the order of numbers today is not indicated from the word at all.
Induction wireless charging for the Galaxy S7 from Samsung today costs about 50 users. I believe the price of the Energous device will be several times higher. 250-500.
And now we multiply this number by the number of charging points that everyone needs. You need a minimum of a couple. for home and office. This is already 500-1000. And if you have to put in every room. from 5 thousand
Will it be difficult to install at home, in cafes and offices
Today, on official Energouss, the process of wirelessly charging devices from a distance looks simple and seamless. But in the real world, things can turn out differently.
And besides the cost of the equipment itself, the complexity of its installation in a room, a car, and so on is also incomprehensible. And it can come out to the fore on the use of technology.
It will be a separate device in the manner of Time Capsule. something universal, codenamed Home. Or, nevertheless, they are built in to the surface with a similarity to the induction charging principle. Question.
Will the standard be compatible with other devices
Today, induction charging, which Apple ignores, uses two coils in the device itself and the dock. Through them, the device’s battery also receives energy.
The manufacturers of Android smartphones have secretly approved this standard. But the same WattUp, if its name does not change after the release, may be proprietary an option for Apple.
This is not much bad, but then we won’t be able to charge non-Apple Bluetooth headphones without wires and so on. Or the company will certify Is it all in the manner of MFi?
How fast will he charge the same iPhone 8
Back to induction wireless charging. Today, the official website of Samsung and other manufacturers does not indicate the efficiency of energy transfer with their help.
But previously, companies boasted even 70% charging efficiency compared to wired connections. This was considered a real technical achievement.
Will “British” scientists find negative for health
In the end, what is the likelihood that wireless charging at a distance will be safe for human health, as many skeptics around the world are talking about today.
Today, a modern user is already 24 hours a day and 7 days a week in the coverage area of Wi-Fi, cellular networks and so on. Will any WattUp survive or will he will be fatal?
And the harm to the body of wireless charging at a distance will be revealed only years after launch. And we will learn the answers to other questions after the release of the commercial product with Energous. But maybe well him?
PhD in ripped jeans. I’m writing a doctorate on Mac, don’t let go of the iPhone, I talk about technology and life.
Acer laptop review. He has less than a centimeter and he does not complex
do not make mountains out of molehills
The next news “Wireless charging in iPhone 8 is needed, and that’s why”
@Pavel Volobuev, I did not plan such material, but thanks for the idea)
He yelled out loud from a from disabled marketers.
In general, the text is about nothing, in the literal sense.
@dontforgettheampersand, Do you have answers to these questions? Or do you have a lot of such exercises? Toothbrush, time. and.
@ AS_999, and I don’t climb with pretentious headlines, saying: “THIS IS WHY.” So tell us. why? Mm?
@dontforgettheampersand, I agree, the was very tight
Good technology, but how safe is it?
@bakeev, this is not yet clear = /
But to grin into the house in the village, turn off all the phones of the access point and live by candlelight, of course, buzz.
No interference to you, no radio waves. but one result. you will still die at 55-60, statistics are mathematics. do not live longer. an obvious fact.
Where is there to live longer, because everyone is busy fighting against Europe, fighting against their own people, crushing food with tractors instead of giving them to shelters, orphanages in dining rooms at hospitals. Do you live long eating cheese products called palm oil cheeses, rotten fish under the guise of fish for rabid grandmothers, despite the fact that the country is washed by all the seas, the lack of normal fruits and vegetables. China and the like quickly replaced Europe, but the shit that they fill it all with, it is simply not possible to lead a healthy lifestyle, and even with the current average salary of average Rosiyans, eating at a level higher than Doshirak will not work in any situation. Up to 50 used to live. So that wireless charging and networks are unlikely to accelerate the end, it will finish the habitat faster)))
@Maria Pilar, thanks for the opinion, one cannot disagree with many
