Bretford Teams with FliCharge on Wireless Charging

Education and office furniture provider Bretford has partnered with fliCharge to integrate the latter's wireless charging technology with its furniture.

Currently in use in a number of vehicles manufactured by Chrysler, Ford and Toyota, "fliCharge technology is the only interoperable wire-free charging solution that can simultaneously charge multiple devices on the same charging pad, no matter their power requirements or position on the pad," according to a news release.

The new partnership will grant Bretford exclusive license to use that technology in commercial furniture.

"We are very impressed with the high-efficiency of the fliCharge technology and its ability to scale up to any power requirement — something not seen with other wire-free products," said Chris Petrick, CEO of Bretford, in a prepared statement. "fliCharge's easy to use solutions for charging multiple tablets, chromebooks, laptops and smartphones opens up several new product applications for integration with our power-enabled tables, desks and charging carts, trays and stations."
