When wireless charging
becomes the law of the land, Denso will be ready with an in-car solution for everybody. The company revealed its workings on a Qi standard
compatible charger for vehicles, and the first batch went into this year's Toyota Avalon Limited model.
The charger is just a pad tray you throw your handset on while in the car, called the eBin
, and it charges the phone while you are driving. Done in collaboration with Philips and Lite-On, the Qi wireless charger is currently produced in Denso's Vista, California facility,
“As smartphones become more widely-used in vehicle connectivity, this new product provides a convenient charging solution that is needless of cords and connections
,” commented Hiroyuki Wakabayashi, Executive Director responsible for DENSO's Information & Safety Systems Business Group.
