WIRELESS CHARGING | THE FUTURE IS HERE!

An analysis of the technology, customer benefits, and how Datalogic has implemented the state of the art in Joya Touch

The life of every mobile device depends on its battery and every battery depends on its charging system.
Users typically don’t consider these characteristics, they simply demand long battery autonomy, long battery life cycles and short charging times. However there is also another very important step in this process: the charging method. Traditionally devices have been charged slowly by conduction using slow charging through copper contacts. Today, wireless charging, fast charging, and boost charging represent new charging methods that minimize charge times while providing other benefits.

Wireless charging technology was introduced in the consumer market by Nokia in 2012 with 2 Lumia models. Since then Samsung, Blackberry, Motorola, and now even Apple have introduced wireless charging devices. Retailers are using wireless charging to help keep consumers charged. Ikea for example is producing home furniture with an embedded charging mat and Starbucks has featured a number of stores with charging mats embedded into tables for customer use.

With wireless charging becoming more popular and common every day, this white paper will look at the various charging methods to show why wireless charging was selected for the Joya Touch and what the benefits of this new charging method are for the industrial user.
