“How do you charge your phone?” If someone asks you this in the future, Xiaomi may offer you multiple answers for that. Apart from the usual wired and wireless charging, Xiaomi recently revealed its Mi Air Charge tech. Going forward, you could also add “via sound” to the list. Yes, Xiaomi has figured out a way to charge smartphones by using sound; no reliance on power sockets for this system. Also Read – Redmi Note 10T launches as addition to Note 10 series but brings no real surprise for Xiaomi fans

The company has filed a patent in China for a technology that explains this sound-based charging solution. There’s no proof of concept yet but based on the theory, the system could charge your phone just by using sound around. It seems living in a house full of crying infants and barking dogs would start to make sense. Also Read – Mi 11 Lite sale begins in India today: Is it worth the special price of Rs 18,999?

Make some noise for Xiaomi?

Given that this is still in the patent stage, it could take some years before we could see a working prototype and eventually a commercially finished product. If you want to understand the “whats and hows”, bear with us for the next para. Also Read – Redmi Note 10 price in India increased for the second time in just a week

The system involves a sound charging device, an energy storage device, and an electronic device. The sound charging stage itself includes a “sound collection device, a plurality of energy conversion devices, and a power conversion device” to convert it from environmental to mechanical vibration. The electronic device will convert this mechanical vibration into an alternating current (AC), which will be converted to direct current (DC) using the power conversion device. This will in turn charge the smartphone or whatever device you seek to fill up.

In layman’s English, this will initially be a couple of devices that rely on sound to generate mechanical energy and then pass it through some clever tech to create the magic that is electricity. The prospect of such a system is indeed exciting but it remains to be seen how well can Xiaomi implement it for commercial usage.

Can Xiaomi pull it off? In the past, the company has made great strides in the world of smartphone charging. Its recently announced 200W charging solution drew attention with a promised charging time of 8 minutes for a device with a 4000mAh battery.

  1. […] Nobody knows the affordable smart TV market in India like Xiaomi does. Ever since the first Mi TV in 2018, the company knows what appeals to the Indian buyers: a big display, decent audio, rich features, and, most importantly, a price that’s accessible to all. After catering to the LCD TV segment for a while, the company is now trying to make some space for itself with its first QLED TV. The Mi QLED TV 4K 55 is still a tongue twister for many but it is surely the best TV the company has ever sold in India. Also Read – Xiaomi to now use sound for charging your smartphones without relying on sockets […]
