Well, it seems that this will not be an issue for long, at least for owners ofQi-compatible handsets. The Wireless Power Consortium has announced that its latest Qi chargers make it possible to deliver 15 W of power to the smartphone’s battery. As a result fast charge-enabled handsets are able to get a 60% charge for as little as 30 minutes, the press release states.
WPC has also made sure that the new chargers will be backwards compatible with older smartphones. As far as when the technology will hit the mainstream – currently, it’s only available to members of the Consortion. It will be made available to the public some time next year.
