Sony has apparently developed wireless charging technology that uses 10-15 watts of electricity supplied at twice the rate of current chargers. This in turn would allow users to fully charge their next Sony smartphone in just one hour.
The usual problem with fast-charging technologies is that it makes battery too hot. Sony found a way to solve this by using control chips (to be incorporated into Qi-compatible chargers and smartphones), which feature enhanced control circuitry capable of keeping heat generation down.
It is said that the Japanese company will start implementing this tech in its devices released late 2014. So we’re guessing it would end-up in Sony’s flagship smartphone unveiled in the second half of next year. Can’t wait…
