NuCurrent Develops New Standard for Wireless Power Consortium, Bringing New PopSockets Device to Mass Production

Utilizing proprietary software, NuCurrent's MP-A24 design specification simplifies and reduces size and cost of Qi EPP transmitter hardware

CHICAGO and BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NuCurrent, the global leader in wireless power technology, announced today that it developed a new wireless transmitter architecture, the MP-A24 Qi design specification. The new standard utilizes proprietary software to significantly reduce cost, simplify design and improve thermal efficiencies. PopPower 2, the second-generation of PopSockets' flagship wireless charger, is the world's first to be mass-produced with this technology and hits shelves today.

"With MP-A24, we're addressing the utmost challenges facing extended-range Qi charging – namely: component size and cost," said Rob Diebold, NuCurrent VP of Global Sales. "By addressing these challenges, we'll bring high-performance Qi to more devices, ultimately increasing consumer adoption of this technology worldwide."

The first-generation PopPower device utilized NuCurrent's MP-A17 Qi design specification, the industry's first Qi-certified,15-Watt wireless charger design with an extended charging distance of up to 12mm (which was over 3 times the distance of the previous standard at the time), to charge through PopGrips and other thick phone accessories. The hardware required for MP-A24-based designs is 82% smaller than MP-A17, while still delivering 15W at up to 12mm of separation due to NuCurrent's proprietary software. MP-A24 is also reconfigurable, allowing it to be integrated into custom product dsigns with unique or challenging size constraints. For PopSockets, MP-A24 has resulted in a slimmer second-generation PopPower 2 without compromising the superior performance of the first-generation PopPower.

"Through our technology partnership, PopSockets and NuCurrent have developed wireless power products that have been first-in-industry solutions with each launch," said Altan Nahum, PopSockets VP of Product. "When you step back, you realize these accomplishments are monumental and drive real value for the business."
