Qi Resonant wireless charging builds on the benefits of inductive charging by removing the close-contact requirement. The transmitter can detect and charge existing Qi receivers at greater distance (up to 45mm). This spatial freedom makes resonant charging perfect for applications such as mounting a charger under a table, desk or embedding technology deeper into a device.

Tradeshow

Qi encompasses the benefits of both inductive and resonant charging technologies in a versatile standard that eradicates the problem of the dead battery. Because inductive and resonant technologies have unique use cases and benefits, Qi products are incorporating both to offer the innovative services and features in the most energy-efficient and cost-effective possible.
