BELLEVUE, Wash. and LISLE, Ill., Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossia, maker of the revolutionary Cota™ wireless power technology, today announced a strategic investment by Molex, LLC, a leading global manufacturer of electronic solutions. The investment will help expand market access to the groundbreaking Cota technology by facilitating development of new products for consumers and businesses.
Cota's game-changing wireless power technology, currently on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016, provides a consumer-ready way to charge devices without plugging them in or placing devices on a charging pad. Cota's Real Wireless Power Platform includes a compact tabletop transmitter/charger, mobile phone and IoT receivers as well as the world's first battery that can be wirelessly charged from a distance — this allows for an AA-size battery that never runs out of power.
A forward-thinking company that is committed to helping customers develop next-generation products and technologies, Molex brings extensive engineering expertise to the new relationship. The company maintains a global footprint comprising manufacturing capabilities worldwide as well as broad sales reach, enabling Molex to assist customers as they bring innovative new products from concept to market launch and making it an ideal fit for Ossia.

By working with strategic investors, Ossia will bring the benefits of wireless power transmission to a broader audience of consumers and industries.
