Panasonic Starts Wireless Charging Service for smartphones in Japan
Panasonic has started a fit-out of its Chargepad, a wireless charging pad, for seven companies in 90 locations in Japan, which includes 27 stores of Tully’s Coffee Japan. Installation of Panasonic Chargepad began last month and is scheduled to continue until March 2013. The Panasonic Chargepad is a new way of charging mobile terminals and can wirelessly charge Qi compatible terminals such as mobile phones, smartphones, and USB mobile power supplies. The transmission coil of the Chargepad is able to achieve free positioning based charging, automatically detecting and moving in accordance with the position of the device being charged through the use of Panasonic’s unique moving coil technology, which supports Wireless Power Consortium’s (WPC) Qi specifications.
If you have Qi compatible mobile phone or smartphone, you can stop by and experience wireless charging at some of the places within Japan where the Panasonic Chargepad is installed to charge the terminals. Two special attachments (for micro USB and for 3G) are prepared for this campaign so that those who do not have Qi-compatible mobile phone or smartphone can experience wireless charging as an attachment make it Qi-compatible one.
