Innex To Demonstrate First-Ever Wireless Charger for Six Items
The electroHUB to premiere at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas
Unlike traditional AC chargers, the electroHUB uses wireless induction technology to charge electronic accessories—
“People need to charge more than one or two items at a time,” said Titi Ngoy, president of Innex. Citing recent studies by CTIA and the NPD Group, Ngoy points out that that 91% of American households use cell phones and over 72% play video games. “That’s a lot of batteries,” continued Ngoy. “Mobile phones, game controllers, e-readers…the electroHUB can charge them all simultaneously. Simply lay your device on the surface and you’ll get a full charge with no extra cords needed. Finally, wireless means wireless.”
Previously, the number of simultaneous charges was limited to the number of charging coils within the induction device. Innex spent months developing electroHUB’s new “broad coil” technology, allowing multiple items to share a single coil, despite different batteries and voltage requirements.
The electroHUB utilizes custom batteries that can “absorb” an electrical current from the charging surface. The batteries, which are available for devices ranging from cell phones to video game accessories, can be purchased separately or included in an electroHUB bundle. Unique adapters also allow Apple® users to recharge their iProducts without the need to replace the interior battery.
With an MSRP of $39.99, the electroHUB will be available for live demonstrations at the Innex booth, #5212 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
