Sony to introduce one hour wireless phone charging? | T3

New charging technology could be available by late 2014, just in time for the Xperia Z2

Sony has developed a new charging pad that is capable of charging phones at twice the rate of current chargers, reports Japanese financial paper Nikkei.

According to the paper, the technology could make it to market by late 2014. That could be just in time for the next generation of Xperia smartphones.

The charger reportedly uses 10–15 watts of electricity to charge devices wirelessly. That is twice the rate of current wired chargers. At that rate, it is theoretically possible to charge a smartphone in less than an hour.

Nikkei reported on the technology as the specifications were being finalised by the Wireless Power Consortium. That means it won’t just be Sony smartphones that could benefit from the technology.
