Wireless Charging in the NIO ES8
28 mars 2018 by NIO
No wires. More freedom.
Cables are a messy part of modern life. Wireless charging is beginning to eliminate this daily annoyance, and the NIO ES8 is leading the way.
All ES8 models feature a generous wireless charging pad mounted in the center console that supports Qi-enable devices. Phones, small tablets, and even the ES8 key fob are wirelessly charged on the slip-free surface.
Automotive-Grade Wireless Charging
The charging pad in the ES8 is made of automotive-grade components, ensuring consistent power delivery no matter the environment.
The charging system works at temperatures as high as 85-degrees Celsius (185-degrees Fahrenheit) and as low as -45-degrees Celsius (-49 Fahrenheit).
The pad delivers a safe and reliable output of 5 watts, while also meeting IP67 and IPX9K water- and dust-resistance standards.
Multi-Coil Design and NFC Authentication
The charging pad in the ES8 utilizes a multi-coil design that expands the charging area to a spacious 70mm by 20mm. The system manages to achieve a 75-percent power transfer efficiency, and detects debris, monitors for overheating, and protects against excessive power draw.
The wireless charging pad also supports NFC peer-to-peer mode, allowing it to connect to a WiFi or Bluetooth network with one click.
Charging At Home
Every ES8 comes with a wireless charging pad for the home, allowing users to conveniently charge their phone, device, or NIO key fob when they are away from the ES8.
