About Bezalel

[beh-za-lel]

Bezalel is a term that represents the pursuit of artistry, workmanship and intelligence.

What we are doing

At BEZALEL we’re focused on empowering every mobile device user to ditch the power cord, both at home and on-the-go. We design and manufacture advanced wireless charging technology destined to transform how we use today’s power-hungry mobile devices.

BEZALEL was founded in 2013 to find a solution for what is arguably the foremost problem with today’s mobile, highly-connected lifestyle. It’s a problem just about everyone has experienced -- the batteries that power our smartphones, tablets and wearable gadgets run out of power too quickly. While the problem is simple, the solution has thus far proven to be more complex. As a result, nearly all of our “wireless” devices are still charged by plugging a cord into a power source.

We're on a mission

BEZALEL isn’t just a hardware or technology company; we’re a team of problem solvers devoted to bringing omnipresent wireless charging to everyone. When a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device loses its charge, its user loses his or her ability to stay connected to the world. That’s why our team at BEZALEL is so passionate – we’re focused on solving a real problem and helping people make the most of technology that has become essential to modern life. At BEZALEL, we exist to be different.

And, we stride forward ceaselessly.
