In early 2016, an idea the purpose of which was to make phones and tablets charging in public places more available was conceived. Many of us face with the problem of phones discharging at the most inopportune moment. In such situation search for power outlets and cords is very annoying and time consuming. In current times measures are put in place to find solutions to this problem.
In public places modules with a set of wires and sockets are appearing. This is the easiest solution but with its own shortcomings, as cords and wires are requiring constant maintenance to be working and complete.
There are also modules resembling ATMs and paid storage rooms where there is a similar maintenance problem.
We offer our solution. Our task was to provide a charging area for the phones being affordable, effective, aesthetic, attention attracting and simple-to-use. It is an innovative product that offers effective interaction with a person and the surrounding space. The device image was inspired by the upcoming World Cup 2018 in soccer.
Thus the Project «Synergy». was created. Specialists of the factory “EXPROMT” together with the company “Schwabe-Design” have elaborated a station for wireless charging of mobile phones using DuPont™ Corian® materials based on DuPont™ Corian® Charging Unit technology.
The station is designated for wireless charge of mobile devices in public places, stadiums, lounge zones, airport lounges, hotels and offices.
Energy is transferred via individual wireless charger, which is a dual-mode transmitter compatible with the requirements of PMA and WPC Qi standards and integrated into the body of table surface. The transmitter is configured for conductivity through Corian® solid surfaces. The charging process starts immediately after the mobile device touches the table surface at the designated place. This is the first public access charging station in Russia made using wireless technology.
The prospect and competitive advantage makes more and more producers of cell phones and tablet PCs integrate the receiver for wireless charging in their new models. Relatively soon wireless charging will replace the wires everywhere like Wi-Fi. But before it happens, we offer removable receivers in the form of rings with micro USB ports, Apple 30-pin and Apple Lightning® for such phones and tablets that do not have integrated receivers. Thanks to the availability of charging adapters, the device can be used with any phone model.
The design includes outward personification. Due to Corian® material structure the factory “EXPROMT” can brand the Station for any company in accordance with the corporate style and fit the object harmoniously into the required place.
The project “Synergy” was presented at the largest International Exhibition INNOPROM in July 11-14, 2016 in Yekaterinburg. Every participant of the exhibition could appreciate the innovative functionality of the product. The immeasurable interest to “Synergy” Station confirmed the need and demand on this product in public places. The station attracted the attention of visitors of the exhibition both by its appearance and functionality of DuPont™ Corian® Charging Unittechnology. Nearly all 6 places of charging were constantly filled. It is worth to mention charging speed which was comparable to the wired one.
