In recent times, wireless charging for phones has become common due to massive improvements in the wireless charging protocol to speed up the charging time just like wired charging. Wireless charging technology may soon be available for notebook PCs. Leading PC manufacturer Lenovo has unveiled a new wireless docking station dubbed ThinkBook Wireless Dock.
The new ThinkBook Wireless Dock is capable of providing wireless charging for standard-compliant notebooks such as the ThinkBook 13x Gen 2. The wireless docking station adopts Power-by-Contact technology, which can provide a maximum of 65W wireless charging for compatible notebooks. The charging dock also doubles as a wireless charging pad for smartphones as there is a pad on the side that will provide a maximum of 10W wireless charging for mobile phones.
At the same time, the docking station has an intelligent detection function, which can determine whether the notebook is placed properly on it. This is to ensure that the Power-by-Contact is working at the maximum power. It uses Wi-Fi 6 to ensure that the Power-by-Contact connection is at full strength.
In addition, the device also has an unlimited hub function as it is equipped with three USB Type-A ports, a USB Type-C port, and an HDMI display output port. It supports dual displays at up to 4K/60Hz. There is also the Lenovo Slim-Tip jack to provide power for the wireless dock.
At present, Lenovo has not yet announced the specific price and release date of the ThinkBook Wireless Dock. We expect the product to be available when the ThinkBook 13x Gen 2 is released.
