Many of us spend hours each week inside of our vehicles. Some of us face long commutes, others are constantly hopping in and out of our cars for meetings and errands. All the while, we are using our phones to make hands-free calls, navigate through town, and listen to music. So why are drivers still left without a convenient way to charge their devices while in the car?
This isn’t to say automakers haven’t tried to create a convenient way to charge. All modern cars have in-vehicle wireless charging options, but they have yet to deliver a reliable experience. Many rely on restrictive rails to hold devices in place, but the rails can’t be one-size-fits all for the largest and smallest of phones.
Wireless alternatives require devices to be precisely aligned with the transmitter, and when things inevitably shift around during the drive, it can easily disconnect and stop charging. Even when these solutions do work properly, they can only charge one device at a time – sorry, earbuds and passengers’ phones. And these aren’t the only issues: phones overheat, receive power slowly, and generally leave the consumer frustrated.
FreePower’s wireless charging technology overcomes these limitations by providing a seamless, convenient, and intuitive experience. It features full-surface charging from corner to corner: as devices are set down, power is delivered to each one, and they will continue to charge no matter how much they bump or slide around.
These flexible, modular surfaces can be integrated into any part of a vehicle, from dashboards and center consoles to any surface that’s conveniently accessible to the passenger. As new devices are released and charging protocols evolve, FreePower’s firmware can be updated over the air to easily accommodate these changes, making for a uniquely future-proof solution.
Thanks to its advanced magnetic design and unique driving architecture, charging at 15W with FreePower is faster than the same rate from other automotive wireless chargers. Not all 15W wireless chargers are created equal: efficiency across the active area can vary greatly and FreePower leads the way.
FreePower is the antidote to every issue automakers have experienced with in-vehicle wireless charging and automotive wireless power in general.
