We are delighted to announce a strategic partnership with Gill Electronics.
Press Release January 5th 2015
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. and LONDON, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gill Electronics, Inc. and Chargifi Ltd. today announced an agreement for Gill to provide its wireless power transmitters and receivers to Chargifi. Chargifi will be installing and distributing these products along with its smart wireless charging network solution globally, with installations beginning in January of 2015. It is expected that this rapid deployment of next generation wireless power technology will set the standard for how wireless charging should be experienced in public places.
Gill Electronics is a market leader in resonant wireless charging products. Gill recently introduced the first commercially available resonant wireless charging applications for mobile devices based on the Rezence™ standard. Resonant products allow users to charge their mobile phone, tablets, laptops and other devices without the need for plugging into an outlet with an enhanced user experience. The products allow for charging of multiple devices on the same charge area, spatial freedom for flexibility in placement, and the ability to charge devices with different power requirements on the same area (i.e. a smart phone and laptop).
"We are excited to be working with a progressive company like Chargifi and provide them with the wireless power products that enhance their world class networking solution," said Brad Miller, Gill Electronics Chief Technology Officer. "Our Rezence certified products provide the ease of installation and the great user experience needed to charge not only smart phones, but tablets and laptops, which are key in driving the global ecosystem."
With Rezence, Chargifi plans to do for power what Wi-Fi has done for data, by creating an international network of Chargifi 'spots' to power people through their day. Chargifi 'spots' form an intelligent network providing an opportunity for venues and brands to discover more about their customers' needs and introduce a platform for real-time communication. Chargifi has a global base including Europe,India, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and China, for distribution and installation of the systems.
"Gill provides the perfect complement with its leading edge technology and products to go with our best-in-class smart network solution," said Dan Bladen, Chargifi Founder and CEO. "We plan to install 100,000 charging spots by the end of 2015, with installations in North America, Europe, and Asia."
Products and demonstrations can be seen at CES 2015, January 6-9, in the A4WP booth #30364 in the South Hall.
