Tesla, known for making high-end products running on batteries for cars has launched a ‘Wireless Charger’ for iPhones as well as Android phones. The new Tesla wireless charger was listed on its official website but was later removed after being sold out. It was spotted by 9to5Mac, on the Tesla website.
Yesterday we have reported about the Mi Wireless Charger, which comes supports for the universal Qi wireless charging standard. Now you would say, doesn’t Xiaomi already have a wireless charging pad? Yes, it does, but this one’s different.
Tesla wireless charger comes with the same design and builds that is used in other energy products, like the Powerwall. It is compatible with all those smartphones, which come with Qi certification for wireless charging, and has been priced at $65. It will be available in two colour options-black and white.
Coming to the specifications, the portable charger comes with a battery capacity of 6000mAh along with support for 5W wireless charging as well as 7.5W wired charging for faster charging. The charger includes a type-C USB port and a type-A USB port.
This power bank with a 3350mAh battery capability comes with chords on either side for charging. One side has an Apple lightning port and the other side has a USB port for charging Android devices.
This portable charger is not the first charging option for smartphones from Tesla. Last year, the company had launched the Tesla PowerBank, which was priced at $45 (Rs 3,195 approximately).
Compared to Mi Wireless charger, Tesla charger is costlier. We will have to see what it comes out when the company brings the stock back.
As maximum Smartphone OEM’s are coming with wireless charging option in their flagship smartphones, wireless chargers have huge market potential and e will see many players entering in the market in coming days.
