Xiaomi to now use sound for charging your smartphones
“How does your phone get charged?”Xiaomi may provide you with multiple responses to that question in the future if someone asks you this.Xiaomi recently revealed alternatives to the standard wired and wireless charging options.
“How does your phone get charged?”Xiaomi may provide you with multiple responses to that question in the future if someone asks you this.Xiaomi recently unveiled its Mi Air Charge technology, in addition to the usual wired and wireless charging options.You could also include “via sound” in the future.Yes, Xiaomi has developed a sound-based method for smartphone charging;This system does not rely on power outlets.
This sound-based charging solution is explained by a technology for which the company has applied for a patent in China.Although there is currently no proof of concept, the system could theoretically charge your phone by using ambient sound.It might start to make sense to live in a house with screaming dogs and crying infants.
Make some noise for Xiaomi?
Since this is still in the patent stage, it could be years before we see a functional prototype and eventually a finished product that can be sold.Please bear with us through the following para if you want to comprehend the “whats and hows.”
A sound charging device, an energy storage device, and an electronic device make up the system.In order to transform the sound from environmental vibration into mechanical vibration, the sound charging stage itself includes a “sound collection device, a plurality of energy conversion devices, and a power conversion device.”Using the power conversion device, the electronic device will transform this mechanical vibration into alternating current (AC), which will then be transformed into direct current (DC).This will thus charge the cell phone or anything gadget you look to top off.
In layman’s terms, this will initially consist of two or three devices that use sound to generate mechanical energy and then pass it through clever technology to produce electricity.Although the idea of such a system is indeed exciting, Xiaomi’s ability to implement it for commercial use remains to be seen.
Can Xiaomi accomplish this?The company has made significant progress in the charging of smartphones in the past.Its recently announced 200W charging solution caught people’s attention because it promised to charge a 4000mAh device in 8 minutes.
