The Wireless Power Consortium is a non-profit organization with more than 600 member companies from around the world who work together to develop important wireless power standards. These standards, such as Qi, ensure interoperability and safety of wireless-charging products used by millions of people every day.
Every device you use needs power: mobile phone, ear buds, stylus, tablet, watch, and laptop. That’s too many power cords to have to plug in!
Wirelessly charging frees you from the cords: just set your device onto any Qi-certified charger and you’re good to go. It’s a small convenience, but it means one less thing to fiddle with and one less hassle in our complicated lives. Not only does this make it easy to top off the charge in your device throughout the day, you never have to worry about it: Qi is is a common standard throughout the industry – it just works!
THE IMPORTANCE OF STANDARDS
Any electronic product must be designed and manufactured to meet safety and operating standards. The Qi standard has incredible industry support and the WPC’s role has been to create and manage strict certification procedures, ensuring manufacturers deliver products that are safe and effective and that are compatible across the Qi ecosystem. This means if your wireless charger is Qi-certified, then you can be sure that it will charge every Qi-certified phone or other product on the market.
Each product that has been certified to meet the Qi standard can carry the Qi logo, which means you can expect it to perform as expected and to do so safely. Look for the Qi logo, and check products in the database (see below).
FIND YOUR WIRELESS PRODUCT AND VERIFY CERTIFICATION
If you would like to get a new mobile phone or other product that supports wireless charging, look in the WPC Product Database to see which products are Qi-certified. You can also use the WPC Product Database to double-check that a product claiming certification has actually been fully tested and approved as being compliant with the Qi specification.
To look for mobile phones and other products that can be wirelessly charged, look for a Receiver product.
To find wireless chargers, look for a Transmitter product. (Leave the “Automotive Charger” and “Subsystem for integration” fields set to No.)
Smartphones have strict control to battery. Mobile phones will switch to standby mode to avoide absorbing exceeded current power. Any damage to lithium battery life from overnight charging could be negligible
wireless charger can resist unreasonable waste of electricity in charging process. They also automatically recognizes different devices and energy requirements for “personalized work". They could automatically indentify different smartphone model to provide proper power watt supply. When charging is required, the transmitter and receiver chip will start working automatically at the same time. When fully charged, both parties will automatically turn off.
