View the results of 2,000 consumers from U.S., Europe and Asia regions on their perceptions, interest and experiences with wireless charging.
Consumers say wireless charging is the must-have feature for smartphones and there is significant value of using wireless chargers wherever they live, work and travel.
A recent global survey conducted by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) revealed the significant value consumers place on wireless charging, indicating a high degree of satisfaction with available products and the near-term potential for faster consumer adoption.
WPC surveyed 2,000 consumers1 from U.S., Europe and Asia regions to gauge their perceptions, interest and experiences with wireless charging. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the prevailing global standard and the only pervasive wireless power technology already designed into the vast majority of smartphones, automobiles, furniture, laptops, power tools and countless accessories (Android and iPhone covers and wireless charging pads and stands).
The detailed survey results will be made available to all WPC members. This is just one of the many benefits of WPC membership. Other benefits include:
This survey reinforces why top brands -- from BMW to Toyota, from IKEA to Verizon Wireless, Samsung to LG -- have chosen to include Qi wireless charging in their products or at places where people need to remain always charged.
There are now more than 60 models of cars, 4,000 public locations (including McDonald’s in Europe, Starbucks in Germany), 80 models of smartphones and 900+ certified and tested wireless charging accessories (for iPhone and Android) now available.
