Wirelessly Charge Your Devices with Capital One's New Inductive Charging Patent

Are you running out of charge on your phone too quickly? Tired of having to plug it in every time you need to give it some extra juice? Well, Capital One Services has got you covered.

The company recently filed for a patent for a new inductive charging technology that could revolutionize the way we wirelessly charge our devices. This technology could make it easier than ever to keep our phones and other devices fully charged with just the wave of a hand.

The patent, numbered US20230223796A1, is a continuation of a number of previous patents filed by Capital One. This technology was initially filed as “Dynamic Transaction Card Power Management” back in April of 2016. The technology has since been further developed and improved, and the new patent proposes a way to wirelessly charge devices using inductive charging technology.

Inductive charging technology works by using a special coil that is connected to a power source. When the coil is placed near a compatible device, it creates an electromagnetic field that is used to transfer energy to the device. This energy is then used to charge the device’s battery.

What makes this technology unique is that it can be used to wirelessly charge multiple devices at the same time. This means that you don’t have to worry about plugging in each device one-by-one. Instead, you can just wave your hand near the coil and the energy will be transferred to all of your devices at once.

What’s more, the technology can be used to charge devices that don’t have a compatible charging port. This means that you can charge any device, from a phone to a laptop, without having to worry about finding the right cable or adapter.

The patent also includes a feature that prevents devices from being overcharged. This ensures that your device won’t be damaged by too much energy being transferred to it.

This technology could have a huge impact on the way we charge our devices. No longer would we have to worry about finding the right cable or adapter to charge our devices. Instead, we could just wave our hand near a coil and our devices would be charged in no time.

However, it’s important to note that this is just a patent, so there is no guarantee that this technology will ever make it to the market. That said, it’s certainly an exciting development from Capital One that could revolutionize the way we charge our devices.
