Charge your Devices Wirelessly with the First Wireless Portable Charger from Sony

Users with Qi-compatible devices can now enjoy cable-free charging of their devices


(SINGAPORE, 27th March 2014) – To meet the demands of the latest generation of smartphones and smartphone users for wireless charging utilizing Qi-technology, Sony has announced the CP-W5, a new USB Portable charger that is able to wirelessly charge[1] Qi-compatible devices using an electromagnetic field. This inductive charging technology presents extra convenience for gadget-savvy consumers who are always out and about. The CP-W5 is also able to charge portable devices the conventional way, via a charging cable. It provides users with the convenience of fast-charging, at a high output of 1.0A if the device is charged wirelessly and 1.5A when used with a Micro USB cable.

The CP-W5 has a broad range of charging options. Its main strength lies in the fact that it can charge devices wirelessly or via a charging cable while on the go. It also serves as a charging plate when connected to an AC power supply. Simply place the Qi-compatible device on top of the CP-W5 and both your device and CP-W5 will be charged at the same time.

The CP-W5 comes with Sony's Li-ion Polymer rechargeable battery that has a capacity of 5,000mAh, and is ready to be used out of the package immediately to charge your smartphone.

Containing a Sony-made Lithium-ion battery that can be recharged 1,000 times, the CP-W5 leverages on Sony's Hybrid-Gel Technology, allowing it to retain more than 90 percent of its capacity at 1,000 charges.

The new CP-W5 USB Portable Charger from Sony comes in white, and will be available in Singapore from April 2014 onwards.
