Do you remember the AirPower? A charging base that Apple presented in September along with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X and that is making us beg, because almost a year later we haven’t had any news of its launch . In the absence of having the product physically in our hands, today an Apple patent has been made public where lets us see what the interior of this charging base would look like, and it seems that for the moment we will have to settle for a simple outline of what they presented, as according to Mark Gurman it will not reach the market until September.
In the most common charging bases that we can find at Amazon, a charging coil or at most two coils are integrated, which are responsible for generating the magnetic current to be able to charge our devices . This means that we have to position the device very well in the base so that the recharging begins.
The AirPower would not have this problem because according to a patent that has been published today in Patently Apple, the Apple charging base would have a large number of coils distributed over the entire surface of the base as shown in the following diagram.
This distribution of the coils will make the charging power equal over the whole surface of the base so we won’t have to put the mobile right in the middle to start charging efficiently, but the position will be indifferent thanks to this internal structure. This will make it much easier to recharge the Apple Watch and AirPods without having to find the optimal position to have an efficient recharge, something that would make us lose time.
In the Patently Apple website you can find a lot of technical information about this Apple patent that roughly tells us that the architecture of this load base will be insulating, distributing the different coils in several layers.
This information makes us think that the operation of this AirPower will be exceptional leaving the load bases of other brands in a bad place, although obviously we will have to go through the checkout and pay more for this Apple load base than for another one.
Leave us in the comment box what you think of this patent and if you think that the AirPower will reach the market in the coming months.
