    All About Qi

    While no manufacturer explicitly states that their wireless charger may lose its charge when faced with peculiar surfaces, it’s definitely something you have to consider. 

    For instance, your average wireless charger may penetrate most organic surfaces with no issues to speak of, but this all changes when the tabletop is made of metal or thick leather.

    When the proof of concept was first introduced by MIT researchers many years ago, they operated the prototype charger at a range of about 30 cm. Although this range hasn’t really changed that much over time, the consistency of the charge being delivered has most certainly improved to an impressive standard.

    The emergence of new technologies has always been at the forefront of workplace evolution, and wireless technologies have done more to change the modern workplace than any other invention. 
    Technology has come a very long way since and modern Qi-operating wireless chargers like the invisible wireless charger are miles ahead in every meaningful way. For starters, the 10W charge it delivers at distances of up to 20cm or more should speak volumes about the standards these chargers have come to reach.
    Seeing how significantly potent newer wireless chargers have become compared to their earlier counterparts, the investment is well worth the cost as long as you value function over form. In fact, the main goal of an invisible wireless charger is to perform its duties without standing out in the slightest, which isn’t something that first-generation Qi chargers could be expected to do.
    While the furniture itself may not be all that charger-friendly at this point in time, the selection of ingenious wireless chargers that you can repurpose for the task is certainly worth looking at. To be more precise, some wireless chargers like InvisQi can deliver a consistent charge through surfaces up to 30mm thick.
    With more and more of our appliances becoming wireless, it makes perfect sense for our environment to change accordingly, in order to accommodate the many new technologies put forth by what many have so rightfully called ‘the wireless revolution’.
    Seeing how often many of us rely on our phones during the day, it can be quite an inconvenience to constantly have to plug the charger cable in every time you get that low battery notification. With a Qi charger, you can simply lay the phone down on the designated charging spot in one smooth motion
    Although wireless charging as a technology isn't exactly brand new, the concept has to be revisited every time a new Qi-compatible smartphone or tablet hits the market. To that end, every wireless charger needs to be accommodating to not only existing devices but to effectively predict and adapt to how newer models might behave compatibility-wise.
    It may seem like overly modernistic technology for some but long-range wireless charging is constantly evolving and improving every year. The very thought that you could charge a device without plugging it into a socket seemed so foreign just a few years ago, and yet, we nowadays enjoy a full bloom of wireless-charging smart devices and the technology seems to get even better by the minute.
