With wireless power becoming more and more popular it is no surprise that the QI Standard has been adopted by the wireless power consortium.
I thought that this was some far fetched idea, but then I remembered how my toothbrush is actually using this technology. Duh it has been sitting right in front of me for the last 3 years and has been wireless charging. How cool is that!
As of now there are only a few devices that work with wireless charging and energizer is a big player in the industry. You still have to equip your phone with extra pieces that will charge the device from the power of a power pad. With the new QI Standard more devices should start coming out with built in ways to pull power from a power pad or other charging device which is pretty cool.
How great would it be to just come home drop your phone on a counter and have it charge. I cannot wait. In fact I have been reading that in the futre homes will be built with this technology in the walls and even lamps, tvs etc… will be powered wireless. What a day that will be.
Is there a danger to wireless power? They say there is not and there is a lot of wireless signals buzzing around our heads as we speak, so until the day comes we will just have to wait.
What do you think about wireless power. If you could charge anything wireless what would it be?
