Malaysia’s 1st Nanotech Wireless Charger Coming Soon In Mid 2021
One of NanoMalaysia’s tech partners Enhance Track has announced they have completed the very first prototype of Radio Frequency Wireless Mobile Phone Charger or better known as METT (Malaysian Energy Transmission Technology). It could be the very first nanotech wireless charger with the “Buatan Malaysia” tag too.
It lets you charge 5V-based mobile devices (which means pretty much all smartphones) without any cords through remote contactless non-inductive charging within few meters from the blaster. You can literally just walk into a supported WiFi zone and your phone would be charged automatically. No amperage is stated, by the way. It might charge our phones ever so slightly only.
This mind-blowing patent was developed under the National Graphene Action Plan (NGAP) of NanoMalaysia, which focuses on developing graphene-based technology by collaborating with Malaysian industries and universities. It was initially revealed by Dr. Rezal Khairi Ahmad during the NanoSummit Malaysia Conference & Expo 2019 that aims to commercialize such technology for the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Spokespersons from both parties are excited about the release of this product as well.
Everyone today has a cellular phone and whether for business or personal purposes, they need an efficient way of charging their devices without being tethered to a wall. Now, there is a system where you will have true wireless cellular phone charging that can provide you with pure mobility and the market demand has been incredible

NanoMalaysia had pre-identified a remote wireless charger as one of few near-term game changers. Using our unique venture-builder model, the technology was co-ideated and developed with Enhance Track via product development and scale-up projects funding. The wireless charger, with wide potential applications in the digital economy sector, is an excellent success story for the country’s nanotechnology commercialisation agenda.

Currently, METT is undergoing final optimization and improvement before it is expected the enter the market by mid-2021 and is forecasted to generate a revenue of close to RM1.9 billion and create up to 2,800 job opportunities to move forward and stimulate the economy.

As an electronics graduate majoring in nanotechnology, this is certainly interesting. However, there are still lots of missing information here and there – which I understand. Though, I still wish to know more about its amperage, number of devices that can be connected at once, its maximum power output, and also its efficiency.
