Sony’s CP-W5 Wireless Charger Also Comes With A 5,000mAh Battery

Sony_CP-W5_NewsWireless chargers are something of a novelty since they’re not really wireless as for the most part, they require to be tethered to a power source in order to provide enough juice to charge your device. However Sony is hoping to change that with the CP-W5, a portable wireless charger that should work with Qi-compatible devices.

What makes this device particularly interesting is the fact that it comes with a 5,000mAh battery built into it. This means that you won’t have to plug it into a power outlet if you wish to juice your phone or tablet while on the go. It also helps to eliminate the need for extra cables which you could lose or forget to bring with you.

However when the CP-W5 is connected to a power source, it will charge both the internal battery and the device at the same time which we guess would save you time from having to charge either device separately.

Of course there is an option of charging your device via micro USB if that is the method you prefer. According to Sony, the CP-W5 has an output of 1.0A when used to charge wirelessly, but will go up to 1.5A when used with a cable which should make it faster as well.

Sony also claims that the charger will incorporate the company’s Hybrid-Gel Technology that will allow the battery to retain more than 90% of its capacity even after 1,000 charges. Pricing was not mentioned but it is expected to be made available in April.
