Everyone, and whoever denies it is lying, we have wanted our smartphone’s battery to last for days and days like our old mobile phones did. To this day, we are still far from these wishes coming true, but in return, charging technologies are changing dramatically.
At the beginning of the year several companies, with Xiaomi and Motorola in the lead, presented their new wireless charging systems and without contact, the most practical solution to avoid having to connect our smartphone to the current because, even if we have the phone in our pocket, it could be recharging in the background.
Motorola’s option bet on a remote charge higher than the current one, which requires a mobile and charging terminal to be in contact as it is based on Qi technology. The commitment of the technology brand promotes simultaneous charging of several mobile phones, a greater degree of freedom and, above all, a convenience for the user.

Improving the system
The problem with this technology is that its operation is not spatial since it bases its functionality on keeping the two devices facing each other in a straight line and, if something is introduced between the two devices, it is interrupted charging.
This is why Motorola has now partnered with GuRu, a company that specializes in charging devices in watts per meter, using a series of proprietary miniature modules that make it easy for phones to be powered at long range through precision power transfer. Motorola and GuRu They will work together to meet Motorola’s rigorous quality, energy efficiency and safety requirements to bring this new functionality to their new phones.
This is how Florian Bohn, CEO and Co-Founder of GuRu, celebrated the partnership with the mobile device brand:
“Innovation has always been part of Motorola’s DNA. The company has long improved our lives with its ecosystem of smart devices and solutions.. We are excited to join forces with an industry leader whose goal is to enhance the consumer experience. Together, we will introduce true mobility for wearable smart devices and IoT sensors«.
It is to be imagined that the first devices compatible with this technology will not see the light soon, as the association between brands is taking its first steps. Most likely, at the next CES in Las Vegas in 2022 Motorola advance your first terminals capable of recharging a meter or more away.
