The Truth about Xiaomi "Air Charging"

Xiaomi / Mi has just announced True Wireless / Air Charge Technology. It's both incredible, but also filled with caveats...but it still leads to a very interesting future...For why Rugged Smartphones might be a Scam:

    • 2:33 Wireless charging works via LF magnetic induction, glass and plastic is pretty much transparent and doesn’t not impact, energy is wasted in the metal coils. This is high school physics do some google/wiki before you try to “educate” the public.

  • Finally someone somewhat i acknowledge that ”non-ionizing” does not mean that it cannot ionize, even physicists claim that ”non-ionizing” radiation cannot ionize: it can, the only difference is that the likelihood of it happening depends on the power, because multi-photon ionization is still a thing. That said, I don't know how harmful 5W would be, and I don't care to look it up.

  • At the end I agree small devices like speakers, mouse, keyboard, phone etc. But we take our phones to school, work, mall, trips etc. We need at least current or more🔋 to listen 🎶, youtube, games etc, this is fine at home but what about 8+ hours we are outside.

  • Highly unlikely that we wont need batteries,imagine being in the desert or somewhere that cant be reached by a charger, i mean, i would consider removing the batteries possible when we have some sort of a satellite chargers that are either able to locate phones anywhere on earth and fire charger beams on it, or somesort of an aura charging coverage, if that is even possible. but even so, are you comfortable with a satellite that knows where you are everywhere you go? Probably not. so yea i guess its still a hundred years before we consider battery removal.

  • Dude, just remove the part about explaining how wireless charging works and its losses. And also remove the part about comparing obstacle in 5G transmission and obstacle in wireless charging. Scale, material type, etc makes two different phenomenon. You need proper research and sound theory before claiming something that doesn't make sense.

    arvi veronaarvi verona16 päeva tagasi
  • Dude, again. Study the basics of electromagnetic induction. FUN FACT, That plastic in the wireless charger and glass on your phone is invisible to the wireless charger. The main concern is the distance and position between transmitter coil and receiver coil and how matched it is. Also, 5G signal and air/wireless charging are two different application of induction. Unlike 5G, wireless charging is not concerned of fidelity but mostly just maximum power transfer. P.s. Nicola Tesla theorised air power

    arvi veronaarvi verona16 päeva tagasi
  • Dude, I like your video but your reasoning why wireless charging is inefficient IS SO VERY WRONG. The plastic casing of the wireless pad, the glass back of the phone and even the "conductivity" of the two has nothing to to with inefficiency of wireless charging in general. Good voice recording and accent doesn't make false statements facts. What makes wireless charging inefficient are additional power conversion and transfer losses. Wired charging basically eliminates losses in transferring the energy from brick to phone charge port by using conductive wire a.k.a usb cable. Wireless charging uses extra conversion stages instead of a simple cable (induction circuit, coil to coil induction loss, heat) apart from the usual loss in 230v to 5v conversion loss (powerbricks) and phone to battery charging losses).

And no one funded Tesla died in his hotel room US government made his works and inventions "Top Secret". Since they dont want free energy to all!!!

  • You made a mistake at 2:37, because what is being transferred by the wireless charger IS NOT direct electricity, it is in fact magnet waves that are transformed in electricity by a coil inside the phone. So, the conductivity of the material between the coil and the charger don't influences the charging, because if it was like you saying, the energy would not get in the phone at all

Health is no concern because you can load electric energy in yourself and have no issues but There are limitations and conditions for it . You need more energy and higher frecuency u lose distance lower energy and frecuency u gain distance also thats why 5g is not perfect it gets lost fast and wireless charging.
