by Brianna Crandall — March 10, 2017 — Today, technology is intimately connected with life, work, and communication, which is why furniture and technology innovator Kimball Office is making it a more seamless experience. The company says it is continuing its innovative approach to product and technology introductions with Jolt, Kimball Office’s latest technology collection, which includes a USB charger and a wireless power-charging surface that seamlessly integrates technology vital to connection, collaboration and productivity.
The Jolt USB charger has a sleek, low-profile design that can easily be mounted below worksurfaces. Intelligent charge circuitry in the charger is engineered to efficiently deliver the maximum amount of power to devices and includes backlit connectors that help locate charge ports in low-light environments, indicating that the unit is ready for use.
The Jolt wireless power-charging transmitter can be positioned underneath any surface (including glass) to charge multiple IOS, Android or Windows devices at a moment’s notice. Jolt also includes wireless receiving keys that receive the signal from the transmitter.
Products currently on the market have been built around magnetic induction charging techniques, which require that a mobile device be in contact with a charging device, such as a charging pad, points out Kimball Office.
Jolt resonant charging allows for the charger to be concealed, enabling multiple devices to be charged from one unit, at longer distances from the transmitter, and thereby improving aesthetics by reducing clutter, and making cable management easier. The company says it is a true “furniture integrated” solution that enhances the user experience.
