    All About Qi

    As far as what the future holds, we can realistically expect more office gadgets and appliances to make good use of wireless charging technologies.
    We just hope that by the time we can realistically replace all wired chargers with wireless versions, the stigma behind wireless waves would have dissipated to some extent.
    Overall, however, there is still plenty that needs ironing out if wireless chargers are to fully replace their wired counterparts. For the time being, they seem like a good investment for anyone who owns a Qi-ready device and wants to switch to a hands-off approach to phone charging.
    Despite the array of tools you’ve prepared for the job, you will be pleased to know that the installation process is actually rather simple.
    Seeing how it would make absolutely no sense whatsoever for chargers to evolve independent of the devices they’re supposed to be charging, you can understand how dependent they are on new designs and technical patterns.
    It is almost certain that a decent wireless charger will not only turn itself off in the event of an overcharge, but it will also show a bright display of flashing red lights if that is the case. 
    When we look at it from a technical standpoint, the pros of using a wireless charger far outweigh the cons, especially given how versatile these things are.
    Although this isn’t the case with 100% of the wireless chargers being sold right now, the overwhelming majority of them are designed to blend into any room décor.
    Although pretty straightforward at the moment, we can expect wireless chargers to branch out in more specific areas in the near future because different Qi-ready devices have different power requirements. 
    This isn’t the case with companies like Apple, Samsung, or LG, who have to first and foremost ensure that their chargers are safe to use with their proprietary devices. As you would expect, this reduces the overall effectiveness of their chargers, to the point where it’s probably not even worth buying them unless all your Qi-ready devices are also made by those companies.
    For starters, you will need to first understand the difference between different types of wireless chargers and how their output capabilities differ from one another. In that regard, output strength is calculated in watts per hour. As you would expect, a higher w/h capacity translates into a faster and more consistent charge.
    You can also find wireless charging technologies in household appliances, each with its own particularities and unique specs. While originally the need for wireless charging was for phones and tablets only, the advent of new Qi-based batteries made it so that they can nowadays be built into all kinds of devices and appliances.
