According to the patent filings, sound charging technology may charge smartphones and other gadgets without using power outlets.
Xiaomi is working on a new charging method, according to reports. According to patents submitted by the Chinese tech firm, which claims to be India’s top smartphone brand, the forthcoming charging solution would utilise sound to recharge smartphones and other devices’ batteries.
The China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) patent pictures show some crucial facts about Xiaomi’s sound charging patent. The documents, which were discovered by MySmartPrice, indicate that it would utilize a sound charging device, an energy storage device, and an electronic gadget. These gadgets will gather sound and transform vibrations in the surroundings into mechanical vibrations. Xiaomi will also include an electrical gadget that will convert the mechanical device to an alternating current. Finally, the power converter will convert AC to DC (Direct Current).
How will sound technology be beneficial?
This technology, according to the business, can charge cellphones and other gadgets without the use of power outlets. However, for the time being, the technology appears to be too good to be true for a realistic use case.
The business recently unveiled its 200W HyperCharge technology, which can fully charge a 4000 mAh battery in only eight minutes. It also demonstrated Mi Air Charge, which recharges the device’s battery without the use of a charging cable or supports. Xiaomi says that its new Mi Air Charge Technology can charge several smartphones wirelessly at the same time. For the Mi Air Charge Technology, Xiaomi presently holds 17 patents. One can charge smartwatches and other wearable devices by using the new wireless charging technology. The firm stated that it is trying to improve the technology so that it can charge additional smart devices, such as smart speakers, desk lights, and other smart home devices. At this time, there is no information on when the Mi Air Charging technology will be officially out.
