Wireless power

Cambridge start up Splashpower hopes to commercialize wireless power technology for recharging all your rechargeable devices, cellphones, mp3 players etc, without having to worry about plugging different chargers into power outlets.

Their approach has two parts: the first is a sub-millimeter thin receiver module that can be customized to just about any size, shape or curve of a device. The second part is a thin pad (less than 6 mm) that acts as a universal wireless charging platform and is plugged into the power outlet. Any device fitted with a SplashModule instantly begins to recharge when placed anywhere on the pad.Several devices can be charged at the same time.

Major benefit cited by the company include:

  1. Contactless, efficient, wire-free power
  2. Fast and safe charging rates
  3. Low-cost technology
  4. Low profile
