A new nanotech wireless mobile phone charger is expected to enter Malaysia market by mid-2021


A Nanotech wireless mobile phone charger? How does that work? Before we get into the details, it was reported that both Enhance Track Sdn Bhd and NanoMalaysia Bhd will both commercialize a nanotech wireless mobile phone charger, also known as Malaysia Energy Transmission Technology (METT). If the schedule is on time, it will be Malaysia's first and the companies are expecting a sales target of up to RM1.9 billion in five years.

According to the NanoMalaysia CEO, Dr Rezal Khairi Ahmad told the reporters that there is great potential for the METT to be utilized in a wide range of sectors, particularly the digital economy. In case you're wondering how it works, METT is said to be capable of charging at a distance wirelessly (several metres) for 5V power-based mobile devices and tablets. The technology also operates on radio frequency wave range.

Of course, METT is to be manufactured in Malaysia through Enhance Track and NanoMalaysia's partners. The technology should be ready for the market by mid-2021 and could be priced between RM300 - RM500 (not finalized). On top of that, this could also create up to new 2800 jobs, including those involved in technical, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) knowledge.

METT could actually encourage further development of other nano-related technology solutions, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
