DuPont bringing wireless charging to kitchen countertops
Thursday, June 27, 2013 @ 3:57pm

DuPont Building Innovations has joined the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and is working with other PMA members on wireless charging solutions for smartphones and tablets that can be effectively integrated into worktops made with DuPont Corian solid surface, such as that found in the kitchen and bathroom.



“The next phase in wireless power is seeing it embedded into surfaces used for furnishing solutions,” said Ron Resnick, President of PMA. “The collaboration between PMA and DuPont Building Innovations marks another step forward in the PMA’s vision to make smart wireless power a ubiquitous part of our lives.” PMA was founded by Powermat Technologies and Procter & Gamble in 2012.  A wide array of PMA-compliant products are available at leading retailers, and compatible "wireless charging spots" have been installed at airports, stadiums, restaurants, gyms, and other public locations.
