Myriad types of mobile electronic devices now provide people with a rich and colorful intelligent lifestyle. At the same time, users long to free themselves from the tyranny of power cables to enjoy the convenience and freedom of going wireless. An all-new charging experience began to take shape in 2012 when major mobile-phone brands such as Nokia, Apple, LG, and Samsung made wireless charging a highlight of their next-generation products. According to the WPC website, over 400 products have now received Qi certification, ranging from components to charging devices.
At the Qingdao WPC global conference, progress was made in regard to the certification of medium-power testing tools. Low-power test items were also extensively discussed by delegates. Existing wireless-charging standards will gradually move from low-power charging to encompass medium- and high-power. Eventually, wireless charging will not be limited to IT products, but will also include heavy-duty products such as kitchen appliances. The continued expansion of wireless-charging applications will bring boundless business opportunities for Qi-certified products.
The "Qi" mark (pronounced "chee," refers to the "energy of life" in Oriental philosophy. This energy has no form, and flows like water. The concept indicates interoperability between power transmission and reception equipment. In other words, receiver devices that have the Qi mark work seamlessly with transmission equipment that has the Qi mark. For the user, this means no more worrying about incompatible receivers and chargers from different brands. This innovative technology paves the way for a convenient, green, and environmentally friendly approach to charging. Qi products can be used in any country and region around the world.
