” An introduction to wireless charging: changing the way we think about power
Smartphones are changing the way we live our lives, both online and off. With each new model, we are used to getting more processor speed, new features and programs, and entire new ways of using them. Despite increased capabilities, battery life simply hasn’t kept up. For most users, phones are sending out sad bleeps by lunchtime, signaling a low battery.
Wireless charging is set to change this. We want to eradicate the problem of the dead battery.”
“The Wireless Power Consortium created and maintains Qi (pronounced “chee”), the global standard for compatible wireless charging. The Qi standard guarantees that any device carrying the Qi logo will work with any charging surface that carries the Qi logo, regardless of manufacturer or brand.
Qi is backed by over 100 industry-leading companies, who support it because it allows design freedom, product differentiation, and guaranteed wireless charging interoperability .WPC also provides easy access to the essential patents.”
