As demand surges, only Qi Certified wireless charging products can deliver a safe and reliable wireless charging experience.
Products marked as Qi Certified have passed rigorous, independent laboratory tests for safety, interoperability and energy efficiency. Alternative claims like “Qi compliant,” “Qi compatible” or “Works with Qi,” suggests a product has not undergone proper Qi certification testing.
Qi certification ensures that devices (the power receivers) and chargers (the power transmitters) – always worth together for simple and easy charging.
The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) is the standards organization responsible for developing and managing the Qi standard. Here are some simple guidelines to avoid counterfeit products that have not been approved as Qi-Certified.
Only Qi Certified products can legally use the Qi logo.
Although a Qi logo isn’t a guarantee of certification (many products attempt to use the logo illegally), the absence of the logo suggests the product is not certified.
A manufacturer may illegally print a Qi logo on an uncertified product. How can you make sure the product has been tested properly and is not a fake Qi product?
There is one way to make absolutely sure:
The WPC issues an official Qi Certificate of Registration whenever a product is certified. If you’re unsure about a product or brand, just ask the manufacturer to share their certificate. If you are a professional buyer, you can also ask your vendor to provide you with their product's Qi Certificate of Registration.
The Qi certificate is valid when the URL that is printed on the certificate brings you to a page on our website that shows the same product (visually identical, same brand name, product name, and type number).

The WPC website is continually updated with a database listing all Qi- Certified products. This database is fully searchable and can be found at wirelesspowerconsortium.com/products/search.

The Wireless Power Consortium shall not be held responsible for any damage, direct or indirect, that may be caused by the user of any Qi certified product or any uncertified product that claims compliance with the Qi specification. Product manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products meet any applicable product safety regulations. Certification by the Wireless Power Consortium does not guarantee product safety. Qi Certification of a product is not an endorsement of the product.
