    All About Qi

    • 3 min read

    As 5G connectivity is becoming available for more and more devices nowadays, questions could be asked about what other areas could use upgrading so as to make better use of available technologies. Seeing how wireless charging has only been around for about a decade or so, it makes perfect sense for it to keep up with emergent connectivity standards.

    Even though the concept of delivering power through the air isn’t exactly new by any means, it wasn’t until just a few years ago that engineers finally settled on a practical way to do it. What we see nowadays with Qi chargers is actually a continuation of a concept demonstrated in the late 19th century.

    That said, we can see why restaurant tables with inbuilt wireless chargers may never equal stand-alone charging stations.
    For instance, the charging beam is generated by a laser emitter configured to produce a focused beam in the near-infrared spectrum.
     In many ways, a unified global wireless charging ecosystem makes it easier for emerging technologies to adhere to a specific set of functional parameters. 
    Many are those who would, for instance, want to charge up power banks, media players, and eBook readers provided that technology allows it. 
    Bear in mind that unlike Qi chargers, devices that incorporate Qi-ready receivers spend a much longer time in their development phase. 
    As you can imagine, this usually comes at some financial cost, albeit a justified one all things considered. 
     From wireless chargers to inductive-based batteries, there certainly is a need for wireless charging and energy-saving technologies.
