Webinar Overview
The future of wireless charging is here: Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the world’s de facto wireless charging standard for providing 5-15 watts of power to small personal electronics. Though primarily used to charge smartphones, the standard can also apply and easily be used to provide power for a growing number of consumer devices. With more than 6000 Qi-certified products on the market today, Qi delivers a positive and safe wireless charging experience. The WPC and its 500+ member companies are committed to continuing to grow this market by delivering differentiated and affordable products.  Only Qi-Certified products are allowed to carry the Qi logo.

Learn about Qi and other wireless charging standards, underlying technology, compliance testing considerations and more in this webinar.
