No one likes having to fiddle with cords to charge their gadgets. There are charging accessories out there that allow you to charge your devices, like smartphones, by simply laying the device on a charge plate. A company called PowerbyProxi is showing off the next generation of wireless charging at Computex.




The company has bowls that you can throw multiple smaller gadgets into charge them at one time. The charging devices the company has shown off in the past were able to provide 3.5 to 5 watts of power. It's important to note that PowerbyProxi is a component firm and these devices are proof of concept.


That means they won't be available to purchase. The company works with firms like Samsung, TI, and others to use its components in products you can buy. PowerbyProxi's latest product is able to deliver 15W of power and will be backwards compatible with Qi devices. The bowl can also charge devices at a vertical height of about 1.25-inches meaning devices can be stacked.
