Dell figured out how to turn any laptop into a wireless charger for smartphones and gadgets

There's nothing new about wireless chargers -- some smartphones can even charge other devices themselves -- but the ability to charge smartphones and other gadgets with a laptop has not yet been used in their decisions. The first could be the Dell company, which patented the method.

Even the best laptops have a mass of free space on the front panel, where wireless electronic chargers like smartphones can easily be installed — this is what Dell's patent application to USPTO says.

However, application No. 20220239124 does not provide for the integration of charge coils into the laptop ' s body; instead, the wireless charger will be installed on the laptop by magnets, and the power supply to the lining will be supplied through special contact on the computer itself.

It is not yet known what power, even in theory, can provide such a lining, whether it would be convenient to place a smartphone or any other device on the front panel of the laptop, especially during operation, to dial up anything in such a mode unless it is possible to use a mouse and a separate keyboard.

Moreover, there is not yet any indication that Dell intends to introduce patented solutions into new products, and it is known that some patent-registered technologies have been waiting for their hour for years.
