FreePower for Countertops

FreePower, the company setting the new standard for wireless charging, has debuted its latest solution, FreePower for Countertop.

FreePower, the company setting the new standard for wireless charging, is debuting its latest solution, FreePower for Countertop, which turns any surface into a wireless charger. This groundbreaking product debuted at the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas.

From kitchens and bathrooms to hospitality spaces, this solution puts seamless, elegant, and functional power at people’s fingertips in high-use spaces. FreePower for Countertop is purpose-built to make it easy for designers, architects, builders, and showroom owners to add free placement wireless charging to their stone countertop solutions.

FreePower worked closely with the design and fabricator community to think through every aspect of embedding its wireless charging technology into countertops, from the cut-out requirements for the stone to visual cues and customization. Fabricators will need to complete a certification process from FreePower, during which they will learn how to embed the technology into their projects.

To maintain a smooth, sleek, and uninterrupted countertop design, FreePower is embedded into the stone itself. Aside from the glow of its proprietary halo, there is no indication of a wireless charger lying just beneath the surface: no ridges to cause a spill, no bumps to inhibit use of the counter, and no crevices to fill with grime. The halo indicates the charging zone, controlled by an app where users can customize the colors, from subtle white to multicolor “party mode.” It can be dimmed completely, then reactivated with a stealthy feature called “Wave to Wake” – simply wave a smartphone over the charging zone, and it lights up to guide the way.

The product is software upgradeable, ensuring that the investment made in this embedded technology can last for years as smartphones and other devices continue to evolve. And the mounting system was purposefully built so wireless chargers can be replaced in a matter of minutes if ever needed in the future.
