At Fulton Innovation’s booth at the 2013 CES, we received a tech demo of the new eCoupled two-way wireless charging solution between tablets and smartphones. Essentially, a tablet that’s being charged wirelessly can actually be used to wirelessly charge a Qi-enabled mobile phone. By placing the two devices back-to-back, the power transfers wirelessly between them. In the video above, the technology is demonstrated using a Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet and Droid Charge Android handset. Recent smartphones, like the Google Nexus 4, HTC Droid DNA, Nokia Lumia 920 and 820, are Qi-enabled, so perhaps we’ll see this become a reality for them in the future. Check out more videos from our 2013 Consumer Electronics Show playlist.
