Moto 360 gets Wireless Charging
The Motorola Moto 360 is about to launch any time this week with speculations that Google I/O will see the launch of all the Android Wear touting smartwatches. However, that doesn’t stop the leaks from coming.
The latest information on the Moto 360, Motorola’s highly anticipated Android Wear contender, is coming directly from the Federal Communciations Commission (FCC). It appears that Motorola has decided to dump wired charging for is upcoming wearable Moto 360 and is going full steam ahead with wireless Qi charging. The charger noted here as the Motorola SPN5845A Wireless Charger and is classified by the FCC as a Part 15 Low Power tramsmitter below 1705 kHz and has supposedly been through the certification process sometime last month. The device is supposed to work between 112-205 kHz range.
The document states that the device is named “Motorola Wireless Charger” and was tested exclusively with the Moto 360. However, the document also hints at a wired option for charging with microUSB.
