NuCurrent was selected for Product Design Of The Year for its patented CoolSkin Technology, which enables the smallest, most efficient, fastest charging wireless charging antennas on the planet. By reducing the Electrical Series Resistance (ESR) of the antenna that is typically caused by skin effects and proximity effects, CoolSkin Technology provides higher Q antennas for the best wireless charging experience. CoolSkin Technology is built using standard PCB and FPCB substrates, making it highly scalable and reliable in mass production environments.

NuCurrent was recently named a 2017 FLEXI Award winner (Product Innovation Award), 2017 ITA CityLIGHTS Awards Finalist (Industry Disrupter), and 2016 IoT Breakthrough Awards’ M2M Embedded Hardware Company of the Year.
