During step two, we will explore the primary functionalities of your charging product in more detail. We will select the most suitable charging technology, such as Qi technology, radio frequency or infrared. We will identify any problems that may arise and figure out how to solve them. For electric chargers that are primarily used in damp environments, it is essential that they are fully waterproof. Think of e.g. a charger for a shaver or an electric toothbrush. For wireless chargers, it is important that the device “connects” properly to the charger, instead of simply sliding off and ending up outside the charging zone. It may also be necessary for consumers to be able to tell whether their device is being charged by looking at the charging station or the product. That is another factor to include in the product design.
During this phase, our designers will also conduct research into similar products that are already available on the market, for example by visiting stores and trade fairs and searching online.
