Here’s a brief look at how the Qi standard is evolving:
- Medium Power Wireless Charging (30-200W). The Wireless Power Consortium is developing an extension of the Qi specification that delivers 30-65 W in the power receiver, with future extension to 200W.
- Wireless Power in Kitchens. Appliances without cables and connectors will deliver a safer, more flexible and convenient cooking environment. Powering this new way of cooking will be wireless power delivering up to 2,000 watts.
