Milestone represents strong momentum for expanding ecosystem and commitment to Qi Certified products.
One of the things we hear the most after consumers use Qi wireless charging for the first time is, “it’s so simple” or “how did I go without wireless charging before?” Most people don’t realize the convenience of wireless charging until they use it throughout their daily life.
“Today marks a pivotal day for wireless charging, and those that stand to benefit are consumers. With Apple’s announcement to include Qi wireless charging in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, we expect to see rapid acceleration in consumer adoption and an increase in category innovation. We’re closer to the day of ubiquitous access to wireless charging, giving people a convenient, always-charged experience."
Wireless chargers are sophisticated, high-tech products – safe, efficient, and easy to use. More than 150 million wireless chargers are used safely every day, and that number is growing fast. The vast majority of these 150 million wireless chargers use our Qi standard. We are proud of Qi’s safety record.
Will that far-field dream come true? Or is too much of a nightmare?
In early May, the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) held a meeting for members in addition to a tradeshow and Qi developer forum that were open to the public in Shenzhen for the first time. With more than 400 global experts attending, the event was the perfect opportunity to be in the same room as some of the biggest names in the industry.
