Building on the success of the Qi standard, the Qi v2.0 standard will unify the world under one global wireless charging standard for handheld and mobile devices. Foremost among the coming Qi v2.0 products is Qi2 with a faster, more efficient charging experience that’s ready for the future.
Qi2 uses a magnetic power profile which creates a perfect alignment between receivers and transmitters. This means more efficient charging with less energy loss and less energy loss means faster charging. And when you charge your Qi2 Certified phone with a Q12 Certified charger you’ll get up to 15W of power for faster charging. Last but not least, the magnetic attachment also eliminates the need to find that “charging sweet spot” between phone and charger. Qi2 finds that for you every time as the magnets lock in place.
Charging cords wear out. Wireless chargers don’t, which means less electronic waste goes to landfill.
More than 100 Qi2 devices are lined up and going through Qi v2.0 certification testing. Qi2 products will begin appearing at retail in time for the yearend holidays. To learn more, read the Qi v2.0 media release.
We’re always working to improve, update and evolve the Qi standard and Qi2 will offer improved wireless charging, a new user experience and pave the way for future features and enhancements.
