Qualcomm Quick Charge for Wireless Power Announced Alongside Qi Interoperability

This announcement was made in MWC 2019, and Qualcomm says the Quick Charge technology for wireless power will help in speeding up the charging procedure of charging pads, provided it meets specified standards. With the help of Quick Charge support, Qualcomm states that charging pads will have the ability to deliver rapid power, in a’consistent and security conscious’ manner. Xiaomi has confirmed that the forthcoming Mi Wireless Charging Pad will come with Quick Charge support.

Qualcomm asserts that wireless charging goods are released previously that assert Quick Charge support, despite the fact that they have not passed through the mandatory Quick Charge compliance procedure. The company has expanded its own Quick Charge compliance programme to include wireless charging pads in reaction to these issues. The compliance programme has been extended to guarantee interoperability, and that charging pad producers meet both speedy Charge and Qi wireless charging standards.

“Wireless charging pads powered by Quick Charge will work with the exact same Quick Charge 2.0, 3.0, 4 and 4+ adapters that millions of users already have in the home, work, and elsewhere,” the company explains in its site . Qualcomm says that Xiaomi will be the first to deploy a Quick Charge compliant wireless power pad shortly.

“We’re eager to present Quick Charge protocol for wireless electricity in Mi Wireless Charging Pad, complementing our current line-up of Quick Charge technology-certified wall and battery chargers, and providing our loyal customers the lowest charge times and maximum power efficiency potential throughout their charging options,” Yanteng Wang, direct of wireless charging, Xiaomi, said.

With wireless charging slowly becoming the standard, Qualcomm’s Quick Charge support for Qi-based products has arrived at the ideal time.
