LUXA2, a Taiwan-based designer and manufacturer of portable accessories, best known for its accessories for Apple products, unveiled a series of wireless charging stations, in addition to phone cases and portable power banks at Computex Taipei. However, due to certification issues, the wireless charging stations currently only apply to mobile phones operating on Android system; iPhone-compatible charging stations have yet to be produced.
The charging devices introduced by LUXA2 were in accordance with the Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi standard; hence, many mobile phones on the market can work with the charging stations, without any cables or adapters. For mobile devices that have been fixed with a receiver, LUXA2 also introduced wireless charging receivers to work with the devices.
LUXA2 said that in order to expand product diversity, the company is also focusing on applications for new generation charging products, in addition to its existing accessories for iPhone and power banks. LUXA2 and Apple had previously signed an MFi (made for iPhone/iPad) cooperation agreement. LUXA2 currently does not have plans to produce such charging stations for Apple products because MFi has not yet certified wireless charging products, LUXA2 said when asked why the company did not design wireless charging stations compatible with iPhone, which enjoys high market share globally.
With regards to the first picture with a charging station that can serve eight devices simultaneously, LUXA2 said the charging device was only for display and the Taiwanese company currently does not plan to mass produce the design. Maybe after Qi technology becomes popularly available to the general public, heavy users of electronic gadgets will try to get their hands on a large-sized charging station to charge all their mobile devices at once.
