About

Welcome to the art of convenient Wireless Charging!

Convenicharge is a commercial & domestic product which can be mounted flush with your work surface / bedside table / desk or placed on top of the surface. Business' within a range of industries can incorporate our Charging Pads into their furniture & fittings to allow a convenient charging solution to their customers. 

Convenicharge will revolutionise the way we charge our mobile devices. The constant battle to keep enough charge in my phone to last even the shortest of trips eventually lead to a light bulb moment!

Do you ever leave the house with less than 10% charge & spend the remainder of the day commentating to your friends what % you have left waiting for the inevitable death of your phone? We do too!!

Let's set the scene.....

You're in your local bar/restaurant waiting for a friend to arrive & he/she has no sense of direction & is giving you the play by play on their location & how lost they are while they make their way to you.. All whilst you're phone is dwindling down from 10% to 1%. You get desperate, you start to think maybe the bar staff would have a spare charger cable you could use to quickly inject some juice into your phone, how safe is that though?! You leave it. You start to worry that you might have to just sit and hope they turn up to bar at all whilst your phone has completely died on you ( We've all been there ) - WHAT IF..... You're sat in that bar with no battery but on the table in front you of you see a shiny black circle embedded into the table stating ' Recharge here ' - No cables, no fuss, no stress, just charge!

Does that sound like a better solution to you?.....

How does it work?

Our technology is based around the industry standard QI technology which is already built into numerous Samsung, Nokia, Motorola & many more devices enabling you to charge your phone conveniently, effortlessly & and by simply placing your phone over our Charging Pads. 

HOW DOES IT WORK

Our Charging Pads & Keyring Dongles have specially designed coils built into them which enables them to communicate with your wireless device or our Keyring Dongle when connected to your non wireless device. 

Keyring Dongle - Powered when connected 

Charging Pad - Charges with any USB wall plug or via laptop. 

The internal workings of the Charging Pad & Keyring Dongle are based on magnets, a transmitter in our Charging Pad & a receiver coil in our Keyring Dongle. When placed near each other the signal becomes modulated & inductive charging begins. 

QI wireless charging is certainly not a new technology but it is a technology that hasn't been adapter into the areas we need....until NOW! 

What if I have a wirelessly enabled mobile device?

Great, simply place your mobile device onto any Covnvenicharge Charging Pad & you're charging!

I have an iPhone, how does it work for me?

We have designed a specific Keyring Dongle which has the Apple 8pin connector fitted. You simply insert this into your iPhone, place the Keyring Dongle over your Charging Pad & you're connected!

Detachable Keyring Dongle

Each Keyring Dongle has attached a detachable keyring - Made from Aluminium & built from two sections with Neodymium Magnets. 

Walk into your local coffee shop where a Convenicharge Charging Pad is fitted, de-attach your Keying Dongle, place into your mobile device & charge away!! When you're finished, simply reconnect your Keyring Dongle to your keys.

Place & integrate

Place our Charging Pad on top of your home desk, kitchen work top or integrate & build into your coffee table or work surface for an ultra clean & modern alternative.

Tech Specs

What's been accomplished so far 

- Adapted the QI wireless technology into our casing & design

- Adding the Keyring element to our Dongle which proved to be very popular in our pole ran from a pool of 1000 people. 

- Developing a casing which offers semi waterproofing to allow for a safe commercial application in bars, coffee shops etc.

- Applied for trademark

- Design ran through pole for feedback on ease of use & to ensure the design demonstrated where the charging areas of the pad are located. 

Whats next

Next we will be looking to add further trademarks to our branding, design work, colour schemes & especially on the Keyring Dongle. 

We will also be going into full production & installing into local restaurants & coffee shops.
