Wireless Charger Powers Mobile Devices Using Bluetooth And Wifi

Wireless Charger Powers Mobile Devices Using Bluetooth And Wifi

Cota by Ossia provides juice for your devices with absolutely no cords needed.

With over a decades’ worth of perseverance, physicist Hatem Zeine might have found a way to recharge a mobile device completely wirelessly – without coming into any physical contact with a charging base. The Cota by Ossia is a breakthrough technology that can transmit wireless power for industrial usage, as well as consumer applications.

After debuting the Cota wireless charging prototype and revealing his company Ossia for the first time at Disrupt, Zeine is confident that his wireless power technology will change the way power is transferred. Devices that are Cota-enabled can receive power within a 10 foot radius. The device employs the same frequencies used by Wifi and Bluetooth to send magnetic charges to designated devices or hotspots.

During his presentation, Zeine was able to remotely charge an iPhone 5 with one of his prototype wireless transmitters. Zeine believes the Cota is “the only wireless power technology that can deliver one watt of power at a distance of 30ft safely.”

Currently, this technology is already in the final stages of FCC approval. Ossia has hopes to incorporate Cota into consumer devices as early as 2015.

Zeine foresees an end to our battery dependency within the next ten years. He imagines a world in which there’s a Cota charger everywhere you look.
