Tesla did what Apple could not! Wireless charging now a reality
What Apple could not achieve, Tesla achieved. AirPower, a wireless charging platform that can charge numerous devices simultaneously, was already introduced by Apple in 2017. Due to various technical challenges, the firm decided to discontinue the product.
Tesla has officially unveiled the Tesla Wireless Charging Technology, a Qi-based wireless charging technology that took inspiration from its future Cybertruck. A maximum of three devices can be powered wirelessly at the same time, and each device can get up to 15W of energy.
The Tesla wireless charging system appears to have taken some influence from AirPower, as it offers ‘FreePower’ functionality, which allows a smartphone or gadget to be charged wirelessly without exact alignment with the charging station.
A small Tesla logo is placed on the front of the charging pad, which contains a combination of 30 coils. According to the wide variety of product photos, the item appears to be created for Apple users and appears to be suitable for recharging Apple Watch, AirPods and iPhones wirelessly.
The Tesla wireless battery charger is a high-quality device with an Alcantara cover that prevents damage. Similar to that, it also includes a replaceable magnetized holder that helps users place the smartphone flat or at an angle. A 65W interface is also provided with the gadget to charge the wireless charging pad.
For $300, which is roughly Rs 25,000, the Tesla wireless charging station is currently available for pre-order on the company’s website. This is an unusually high price for a wireless charging pad. The device will start shipping in February 2023, according to the business.
Apple Inc. was busy with the AirPower wireless charging station. It can charge up to three devices at once and works with two Qi electronic devices, such as an iPhone and AirPods, in addition to an Apple Watch. The announcement was made on September 12, 2017. AirPower, which was initially planned to launch in early 2018, ended in failure, creating numerous concerns about the product’s fate until Apple revealed on March 29, 2019 that the release had been delayed.
