Inductive Charger vs. Humavox Wireless Power Technology

June 20th, 2014

Inductive charging is one of the methods used for wireless charging of mobile devices. Other methods include solar charging and wireless charging using  Radio Frequency (RF)  energy harvesting which Humavox’s wireless charging solution is based on. Humavox wireless charging method aims to provide wireless charging solutions for various electronic devices, including hearing aids, smartphones, smartwatches, wearables and Internet of Things devices.

Inductive chargers work with two magnetic coils, one located inside a charging station and the other in the device. To transfer energy between the two coils and charge the device, it should be placed directly on the charging device, because an electromagnetic field is created only when the coils are proximate. As a result, the device cannot be used or even moved on the charging device while it is being charged.

Humavox’s wireless charging solution includes a transmitter and a tiny receiver. The transmitter is placed in the charging station NEST and the receiver in the device itself.  The device doesn’t need to be placed directly on the charging station, and the latter doesn’t have to be flat and can support curved and flexible devices.

One of the main disadvantages of inductive chargers is their low efficient rates, which range from 50to 70 percent, much lower than with a USB cord. On the other hand, Humavox’s wireless charging solution’s efficiency is more than 90 percent!

Inductive chargers are currently available for several mobile devices, but they still fail to fulfill the promise of wireless charging. Check out Humavox solution for intuitive and efficient wireless charging.
