Wireless Charging

2016-01-08, 7:17 AM

Ok so this is a big question - does any of the new Lenovo laptops/devices support Wireless charging?

 

It seems that in a leaked release dates document that was leaked two months ago, it mentioned a new Lenovo device supporting wireless charging.

 

At CES this year, Witricity demoed wireless charging support in new devices for the 2016 year, but didn't specify which PC OEMs would support. However, in their demo video at the 1:20 mark, they place down a Lenovo laptop on their wireless charging pad.


See here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3019437/ces/hands-on-with-witricitys-wireless-charging-for-laptops.html

 

Is this true? And if so, which devices?

None of the new Lenovo laptops support wireless charging. We were told that while the technology is advancing, and is close to providing enough power quickly for a good user experience, it's not quite there yet. They are definitely working on this.

 

On the charging pad side, they released a QI-based charging mat for the ThinkPad Stack, and there is an optional base A4WP Wireless Charging Stand for the ThinkVision Pro 24 monitor. Good for smartphone and wearable charging.
