Wireless charging is convenient, but it’s not exactly quick. A revision to the Qi standard will change that.

The Wireless Power consortium behind Qi has released a new Qi standard that allows devices to draw up to 15 watts of power wirelessly. As we’ve noted previously, that means you’re able to recharge devices much more rapidly.

While the specification is only open to members of the consortium for now, it’s a fair bet that you’d have to invest in a new Qi charger to take advantage of faster charging, however. For more on fast charging, check out our guide to how fast chargers operate.
