16 November 2011
Maxell Europe Limited, the technology brand leader is delighted to announce the European release of their new AIR VOLTAGE, Wireless Qi Charging Mat and Qi Charging Sleeve for iPhone 4 (sleeve sold separately).
These new products conform to the Qi Wireless Charging Specifications, a universal technology standard which has now been adopted by many manufacturers to allow for wireless charging with Qi compatible electronic devices.
Hitachi Maxell, Ltd. was the first company in Japan to release this product, with great success, and now Maxell will be making this available to Europe for the first time from October 2011.
With the popularity of smartphones, users frustratingly have to charge multiple digital devices, however with the AIR VOLTAGE range users can now charge their iPhone 4 without having to place it in a docking station or charge off their computer.
Simply insert the iPhone 4 into the Charging Sleeve, place the phone onto the Charging Mat and the phone charges automatically and wirelessly! You can also use the separate Wireless Charging Sleeve as an everyday iPhone 4 protective sleeve too so there is no need to worry about taking your phone in and out. Once your phone is in the sleeve, place it on the Wireless Charging Mat and go…Effortless! Maxell has learnt that as many as 80 different leading electronics manufacturers have started to adopt the Qi technology standard in their product range so this means an exciting future of Qi compatible products over the next year, with Hitachi Maxell, Ltd. already starting to develop additional Qi compatible accessories which can be used with the Wireless Charging mat and with future Qi-enabled devices as well.
