Wireless Power

Wow, this is really cool! Take your PDA, cellphone, laptop, or any other device with rechargeable batteries and place it on a mousepad shaped device and it will "wirelessly" charge your devices using an inductive field. No more tripping over your laptop cord or dealing with so many chargers no doubt one will be misplaced.

Splashpower is a wireless power solution that includes the following features/specs:

  • It enables you to power up your mobile phone and other portable devices,
    simply by dropping them on a mouse-mat-sized pad, called a SplashPad
  • No physical connection is required between the SplashPad and the device –
    power is transferred wirelessly
  • Different devices can be charged on a single SplashPad at the same time
  • Splashpower spells an end to hunting for the right charger, finding free
    socket spaces or fiddling with connectors and offers a solution to the charging
    problem of current and next generation portable products

The Splashpower solution comprises two parts: the SplashPad charging base and the SplashModule power receiver.

power to mobile devices. The SplashPad is a portable flat surface powered from

airplane tables.
