Microsoft Exploring Ultrafast Wireless Charging for Its Own Devices

Microsoft may be developing a new so-called “ultrafast” wireless charging system for its devices, if a recently-discovered patent gets the go-ahead for mass production.

Called Smart Battery for Ultrafast Charging, the patent (via WindowsCentral), describes how a wireless charging system can use not one charging coil, as it’s the case of the current implementations, but a different approach relying on a smart battery compromising multiple modules.

All these modules would work together and be connected to an integrated controller to manage the power supply, thus offering faster charging times even when no cable is used.

Technically, this particular system can be used on pretty much any device, starting with Surface devices and ending with activity track... (read more)
