Contactless recharging from DoCoMo

by Dhiram Shah

NTT DoCoMo announced in cooperation with Panasonic Mobile Communications that they have experimented with contactless recharging. A FOMA phone can be recharged by simply placing it o­n a level-surfaced recharging pad. The system uses electromagnetic induction to send recharging electricity to the handset’s battery. The system accomplishes contactless electricity delivery through a pad that has a coil for transmission, and a reception coil inside of the handset itself. This recharging stand is planned to be o­n display at “WIRELESS JAPAN 2005,” scheduled to take place from July 13th to 15th at Tokyo’s Big Sight.
