PowerbyProxi, founded by Fady Mishriki and Greg Cross in 2007, is a spin-off of a University of Auckland project that has gained global recognition for the development of wireless charging systems, based on the Wireless Power Consortium's future Qi wireless standard.
The company's products range includes wireless charging systems for small sensors, robotics systems, drones, and industrial equipment. The Cupertino giant may have just started offering wireless charging feature on its devices beginning this year, but the acquisition is a clear indication of its ambitions in the field of wireless charging in future. Apple SVP Dan Riccio confirmed the acquisition. Neither company has revealed the value of the deal. Apple did not disclose a purchase price, but said the team will remain based in Auckland. "We want to bring truly effortless charging to more places and more customers around the world", he added. Its 100W modular wireless charging system has a power transfer efficiency of 90 percent, according to the firm, and when combined with its wireless data system can be integrated with vehicle control systems, Ethernet networks, and other devices.
