Wireless charging standard – Qi

Qi aims to do to wireless charging what Wi-Fi did to wireless networks: one global standard that guarantees that your device can be charged wirelessly, wherever you are.

Qi takes its name from the traditional Chinese concept of intangible flow of power; the word literally means “vital energy”. The idea behind Qi is simple: all devices with the Qi logo will work with all Qi chargers. That’s it. No need for separate chargers, no need for cables, and no need for adapters when traveling. Qi is a global standard – this means that your device can be charged wirelessly wherever you are.

With Qi you no longer have to carry separate chargers for each of your devices. Take your Qi-enabled devices with you, and simply find your closest charging station when you’re low on power – you’ll find them in offices, hotels, airports, railway stations and coffee shops. Qi charging stations are set to become as ubiquitous as Wi-Fi hotspots, and soon the Qi logo will become a major consideration for consumers looking to buy a new device.
