Wireless Phone Charging in Cars and Trucks

PowerSquare develops in-car charging solutions for Qi-compatible mobile phones and mobile devices. Our cutting-edge technology allows drivers and passengers to simply place their cell phones or tablets wherever the charging pad is installed to power up their devices – no wire required. Our multi-coil, patented technology means there’s no “sweet spot” for the phones – users lay their devices anywhere on the pad and charging begins. The wireless charging pad can be installed in the auto’s console, glove box, tray under the dashboard, or area of your choice.

One of the most common places where consumers use their phone chargers is inside their vehicle. As drivers and consumers use various apps for navigations and in-car entertainment, there is a high risk of the phone battery being drained during the journey. This problem will soon be a thing of the past as in-car wireless charging is being adopted by many car manufacturers.

PowerSquare has developed customized solutions for OEMs and ODMs to embed wireless charging technology in their vehicles. The PowerSquare in-car wireless charging solutions enable drivers and passengers to simply place their Qi-compatible device on the designated space to initiate charging – no messy cords or tangled wires required.
