  • Publication number: 20100207575
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a power transfer system which comprises a power transfer device (10) as well as at least one portable device (20), and to a method of controlling the power transfer system specifically in case of a dead battery condition of a battery (21) of the portable device (20). The power transfer device (10) for wireless charging of the battery (21) arranged in the portable device (20) and the power transfer device (10) each comprise a near field communication functionality for data communication by a data communication link (32) between the devices. The method includes a step of starting to establish the data communication link (32) between the power transfer device (10) and the portable device (20). When the establishment of the data communication link (32) is started, the power transfer device (10) requests the portable device (20) to transmit an identification information via the data communication link (32) to the power transfer device (10).
