A new workgroup has been made by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) called the Infrastructure Applications Group (IAG) with the purpose of having Qi become available to a number of different kinds of public locations. The charter members of the IAG consists of Nokia, HTC, IKEA, TDK, Verizon Wireless, Texas Instruments, ConvenientPower, ChargeSpot, Leggett & Platt, and Devant.
This movement is being carried through for the future-proofing of the establishments’ services to future devices. One of the ways for future-proofing is to employ the current Qi wireless charging standard to these public places for consumers to enjoy their services.
The Qi wireless charging standard is currently the leading standard for wireless charging, and is projected to be the future of charging our devices. This is why different kinds of establishments are adopting wireless charging for their consumers as an investment for the near future of wireless charging.
With the number of Qi-enabled devices growing steadily, it’s only a matter of time that this becomes the standard way of charging, replacing the current wired chargers most still use today.
