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.

What it sounds like to me is going back many years to the time when Nikolai Tesla him self was experimenting with wireless power , one of his ideas was using one Tesla coil as a Field generator and many Tesla coils as receivers , it took very specific frequency tuning and was highly inefficient , i saw this personally in a museum live demonstrated and both coils were about half a meter tall and about 4 inches in diameter . and it did manage to light up a 100W incident light bulb outside of the range of the generating Telsa coils , since every tesla coil generates near the Secondary winding a field that can light up mainly fluorescent bulbs . but from the math behind it it is extremely inefficient . you need to generate provide the generator with Kilowatts of electricity to be able to receive 100s of watts

This is stupid because if this was a thing most people would just end up using their phone or device at the same time which will cause it not to charge up.

Did they ever try to make a charger that can wireless charge by just plugging it in then plugging a piece on to your phone and then it charges kinds like bluetooth
just your average human

this technology exists since 1831, its the same principle of an induction cooking hob being sold since the 70s, but even a saucepan sitting right on top of the hop where is at its most efficient place to be its only 75% efficient (roughly), plus, who can actually say anything about health concerns with all those extra waves traveling trough the air unnecessarily?, my gut feeling is to keep on using cables

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

I would buy it if it weren't that expensive, but I'm almost certain it'll be prohibitively expensive to the point that Xiaomi isn't gonna sell a fifth as many as their latest phones

1:25 Who cares? Your phone will always be at 100% thanks to the Air Charge constantly topping it up. It's not meant to charge your phone from 0 to 100, it's meant to keep your battery full so you don't have to worry about charging it anymore.

It wont happen until the devices themself will be much more energy efficent. 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.

Even if we lose the batteries making thousands of charging stations and putting them everywhere like phone booths is a lot worse for the environment, and you didn't factor in how much all that lost power is going to affect not only your electrical bill, but the planet.

I’m so excited about this! Ever since I can remember, I’ve always thought about this. I thought “if our phones can convert raido waves (or something idk the right word) into power, it would be so cool!”. It’s got a long way to go, but eventually it will get there.

I would like to add 5 watts is enough to extend your battery cycle significantly as long as you aren't using high performance apps all day long and it also would work very well for night time charging.

well, Looks like Air Charging is just as Slow & Inefficient as Wireless Charging. Sure sound Cool, But Xiaomi has a Long way to go with figuring out how to Make this type of Charging Effective for all Devices.

There's that same misconception with Tesla. Amazing for his time to try and put this together, but there's still that matter of efficiency. We're a wasteful species already, a little effort to plug in a phone is not worth wasted energy and money.

it 5 watts of charging while its in the room ,, if you want fast charge plug it in... its mind blowing it can be done at all... expecting 120 watts from new tech,, even wireless charging MOSTLY low charge, especially in car wireless chargers.

The only way to charge something through the damn air is by creating incredibly high voltage and very dangerous electricity arcs that are directing to your phone charging port, most likely going to hit your wrist if something goes wrong and shocking you. Unless it makes the lowest energy arcs, which isn't a problem, except it would take, like, two whole days to charge a phone.

the charging speed doesnt matter....because your phone is charging every second so speed doesnt matter since you have more charging time..and if it goes well..and everyone has it in their homes..like you said..there is no need to charge..your phone..everywhere you go..it keeps getting power..so no batteries needed..but..if it was mounted at the ceiling i would believe it..but its hard to believe that objects really dont block..the charging seeing its form..and where it can be placed

Gotta say too, if your device power out put while being used and moving around could out way the air charging power. And you could still drain the battery to 0%. Even surfing the enternet or watching US-first will drain your battery faster than a 10w wall charger keeping up with the usage. Then you have to facto in your phone settings. Screen refresh rate, transmitting and receiving data through blutooth, wifi, cell signal.

Why would you need fast charging if you phone is being charged 24/7. I think once wireless charging gets more efficient this will be the future. I'm sure some day even you car will comes with one of these build in

Wireless charging is inefficient, but the slow charge is actually good for your battery, because of the low heat produced. Also, radiation is basically light. You are exposed to light 24/7, and you are afraid of radiation of lower frequencies?

It is interesting to know is it possible that aircharging can be done using the internet? I mean turning wireless charging into wireless charging through the internet data and with the emergence of 6G in China it is fascinating to think that this is how aircharging is going to be realized by Chinese companies, such as Xiaomi. Air Charging using Wind and Solar energy is also a possibility I believe and I honestly wish major companies make this reality, but I know I am getting ahead of myself.

I'm REALLY not a big fan of this "millimeter wave...untested technology" angle. PLEASE realize that visible light is electromagnetic radiation too, not to mention more energetic and probably more damaging compared to lower frequencies. In terms of wavelengths, starting from couple km in wavelength we have waves we use for AM radios, then in the tens of meters range we have our tv stations, then below that TV stations, then FM radio, then the ScaRy mIlLimeTer WavEs. After that we have our infrared, then visible lights, then ultra violet, x ray, gamma ray, what have you. These are all "radiation". They only differ by frequency. AFAIK, there's nothing special about that specific frequency of light. It's getting to the range where it can't really penetrate structures and whatnot and gets absorbed by the human body, but even higher on the scale we have visible light, (we see around ~half a millimeter), which also can't penetrate structures and gets absorbed by our bodies. I don't really think people consider radiation "damaging" until they get well into ultraviolet. We frequently put ourselves in situations where we absorb so much even higher frequency light that we heat up drastically (say when we sunbath, or just walk in the sun). We know that there are technically downsides to that but nothing is perfectly safe anyways. As far as I know people don't feel so radiated they heat up near 5g towers. Aren't there just bigger concerns?

Wirelesss charging is inefficient, but not because the electricity has 'difficulties' passing through plastic or glass. Wireless charging uses induction, not conduction. Basically using electromagnetic fields to create current in the phone part. Electromagnetism has absolutely no difficulty passing through glass or plastic, but the field strength drops off exponentially with distance, regardless of plastic or glass. That's what makes wireless charging ineffecient.
OnePlus messed up.
