Power supply unit of the future may have a different shape than the one that powers your mobile phone
When it comes to mobile phone power supply, most users have been in a state of confusion.
It is not clear how exactly the transformer that powers a mobile phone should be made, or whether the transformer should be shaped in a certain way, to match the shape of the phone.
The Australian Financial Press contacted various mobile phone manufacturers to get their take on the issue, and the results were disappointing.
In its first response, the manufacturer of the mobile phone, ZTE, said the transformer was made to conform to the shape that the phone is used to and that it was designed to be made of a metal that would withstand the heat of mobile phones, while still retaining its flexibility and resilience.
ZTE also said that it had “developed a flexible, self-lubricating plastic resin” for its mobile phone transformer.
This plastic is called an aluminum film, and it is a material that has been widely used in the production of mobile phone transformers in the past.
It is generally made of aluminum foil or a metal such as copper, brass, or nickel.ZTE’s response is surprising, as it is not the first time the company has made an inaccurate statement about the nature of the transformer.
In 2013, ZTOE’s Chief Technology Officer, Tom Fenton, told the Federal Government that the transformer “can be used to provide the mobile device with more than 1 kilowatt hour of power”.
In 2017, ZTI’s Chief Scientist, Matthew Fenton was asked by the Australian Securities Exchange if he was able to produce a “mobile phone transformer”.
He responded: “We have not been able to provide any information to you on how to use it.
It would appear that you may be referring to the [ZTE] Power supply Unit.”
In October 2018, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) received a complaint from an energy efficiency company that ZTE’s transformer was being used to produce “waste heat” in a mobile heaters that were being used by consumers in Queensland.
As part of the investigation, the ACCC was able, through a freedom of information request, to find out more about the transformer used by ZTE.
The company told the ACCCC that its transformer was designed for use in the mobile heat units in the “Waste Heat” program.
According to the company, it uses the same aluminum film as the transformer for the “wasteful heat” that is produced in mobile heat systems.
ZTE told the ACCC that the company “has not been in the business of manufacturing mobile heat system heaters and is not in the market to manufacture these systems.”
The ACCC told ZTE that it is required by law to provide information to the ACCCs Consumer Action Committee, so that consumers can be able to make informed choices about the products that they buy.
However, the company told ZTOEO that it does not provide any consumer information on its mobile heat equipment.
ZTOEC is a company that produces energy efficient mobile heat for use by consumers.
When contacted by The Australian Financial Post, ZTW, the mobile telephone manufacturer, said that the ZTE Power Supply Unit is “made to meet a wide range of mobile heat requirements, including high-efficiency, high-quality and efficient mobile phone heaters”.ZTE did not respond to a request for further comment.
A spokesman for the Australian Industry Group, which represents mobile phone companies, said: “Mobile phone companies are the most regulated industry in Australia, so we know they have to follow best practice, and are continually working on making sure that our equipment meets the latest standards of the industry.”
The fact that ZTI and ZTE are misrepresenting the nature and size of their mobile phone supply, and misrepresenting their use of aluminium film, should put all mobile phone suppliers and manufacturers on notice.
