ADA — March 22, 2011 — Fulton Innovation (www.fultoninnovation.com), the creator and exclusive licensor of eCoupled™ intelligent wireless power, is pleased to be working with Texas Instruments (TI) and device manufacturers to bring wireless power technology to recently announced HTC (http://bit.ly/gzmK6N) and LG (http://prn.to/hRfTwb) devices on the Verizon Wireless network. The new devices include an eCoupled-integrated option and change the way users interact with mobile technology.
Fulton’s eCoupled technology provides the convenience and benefits of complete wireless power integration, without the need for after-market solutions.

"Our objective is to bring wireless power to every element of life so some of our next achievements will be in expanding spatial freedom, and creative applications through advances in design."
The wireless technology being used in the newly announced mobile devices meet the Qi global standard from the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) for low powered devices, making it fully interoperable with any Qi charging device worldwide. Qi opens the door for mass commercialization of wireless power by ensuring the interoperability of compliant products for both manufacturers and consumers. As a leader in wireless power, with over 600 patents, Fulton Innovation has been at the forefront of advancing the Qi standard as a founding member of the WPC and developer of eCoupled technology.
