Challenge

Cellphone users are increasingly embracing wireless charging technology. However, in order to charge safely and comply with Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and Qi standards, the maximum separation between the transmitter coil (in the charger) and the receiver coil (in the phone) was previously limited to 5mm.

As a result, traditional wireless charging pads and docks are incompatible with PopGrips. Accessories like PopGrips — and even thick phone cases — create additional separation between the phone and charger, making wireless charging ineffective while the accessory is attached. And unfortunately, repeated removal of the PopGrip weakens the adhesive, making it more likely to fall off.

Solution

PopSockets partnered with NuCurrent to design and develop a Qi-certified wireless charger that works with PopGrips. As an extension of the PopSockets R&D team, NuCurrent’s elite team of engineers applied their wireless power expertise to the issue. NuCurrent also introduced the PopSockets team to an electronics manufacturing partner, to ensure the new product would launch as quickly as possible.

POWER:
15W
SOLUTION TYPE:
LOW FREQUENCY (Qi)

Results

The PopPower Home wireless charger launched at CES in January 2020, receiving acclaim from outlets like CNN, TechCrunch, HowToGeek, and many others. The product’s initial run sold out in a matter of days. PopPower Home is the first MP-A17 Qi-certified device to hit the market, making it compatible with all wireless charging-enabled devices. Its innovative donut-like design works with or without a PopGrip, while ensuring stable, continuous alignment with the charging coil. It can also deliver wireless power to phones with a thick protective case, as well as wireless headphones that support Qi. And because it supports extended power profile (EPP) charging, it can deliver up to 15 watts of charging power for lightning-fast charging times.
