The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and Power Matters Alliance (PMA), industry leaders in wireless charging technology, have recently announced a new combined organization and brand identity – AirFuel Alliance. The new body is formed with the aim to work on a common wireless charging standard that will help accelerate adoption and availability of wireless charging enabled products. Certified products will carry the AirFuel name and logo, which will become synonymous with fast, convenient, and readily available wireless charging. 

More than 190 leading technology and consumer electronics companies have joined the alliance, including major stakeholders such as AT&T, Broadcom, Duracell, Flextronics, Intel, MediaTek, ON Semiconductor, Powermat Technologies, Qualcomm and Samsung.

AirFuel Alliance, operating as a unified organization since July, has fully integrated its teams and committees. In October, the alliance hosted the world’s first joint inductive and resonant plugfest, where 14 companies tested over 40 receivers and transmitters to gauge compliance and commercial acceptance.

Ron Resnick, President of AirFuel Alliance
AirFuel technology is the next step in fast-tracking the commercialization of wirelessly charged products. We embrace a new, inclusive ideal of wireless charging and those member companies within AirFuel Alliance are energized towards bringing wireless power products to consumers globally.
