Patent suggests Microsoft is still developing a wireless-charged Surface stylus

Although the Magnetic-absorbing Design surface Pen pen has been around for many years, users have had to replace the AAAA battery every six months until now. But a patent has come to light recently, and Microsoft has not given up on developing a surface Pen pen that can be charged wirelessly. Windows United noted that the patent application was filed on October 21, 2019, but was not made public until recently.

Microsoft said in its document description that the patent solves the problem of installing wireless charging coils on the edges of thinner tablets.

Despite the difficulty of designing and manufacturers, inductive charging with wireless charging coils is an ideal way to charge peripherals.

Only as devices like tablets become thinner, consoles need to make traditional wireless charging coils smaller to charge the Surface Pen pen smoothly.

Microsoft’s design provides magnetic adsorption and wireless charging for peripherals around the metal housing of electronic devices. When aligned, the internal coil can take advantage of electromagnetic conversion to wirelessly charge peripherals such as the Surface Pen.

Interestingly, the patent wants to use the tablet’s metal case as part of a wireless charging coil. This allows Microsoft to deliver a more innovative experience than the split wireless charging module.

While officials have not said when it will be introduced on the new product, the Surface Pen is expected to be a big surprise soon, given that the iPad Pro has long introduced the design for the Apple Pen stylus.
