Energy efficient wireless: convenient for people, good for the planet
More power with less wasted energy allows Eggtronic to build smaller devices in every application where efficiency and size matter: from chargers for smartphones, to laptops, to converters for electric and hybrid vehicles.
Because of their high energy efficiency, Eggtronic devices have a much smaller carbon footprint. “As an example, if the power supply unit that we developed for TV panels will be the new standard, we will save more than 40 million tons of CO2, equivalent to almost 600 million trees every year,” says Spinella, “and we can use our technology in every device to cut CO2 emissions further”.
Eggtronic is also a leader in wireless power. Wireless power technologies from Eggtronic are thin, capable of charging and supplying every device with total position freedom and are extremely efficient. For example, Eggtronic wireless chargers are up to 95% efficient against 70% of traditional wired chargers.
Hard paddling for energy efficient electronics
Like a swan on water, behind every patent there is a lot of paddling underneath. When Spinella started his business from his garage, he did everything by himself, from cleaning to sales. Three years later he was setting up a warehouse, hiring 15 people and filing the first patents. He also had to defy the disbelief of many potential investors, because his inventions seemed far-fetched. A young man from a garage in Modena couldn’t possibly come up with such leading-edge technologies.
Spinella’s inventions have revolutionised power electronics, however. So in 2019 Rinkelberg Capital, the investment office of the founders of Dutch multinational TomTom, invested in the company. Eggtronic was ready to boost its presence in the consumer electronics market, when COVID-19 ravaged the world.
“We managed to hold the helm steady,” says Spinella, “The EIB loan is helping us to look forward to the future again”.
