The relatively freely configurable Qi charging will be replaced by the standardized Qi2 technology in the future. The technology can only be implemented if it fully and in all respects meets the requirements set by the Wireless Power Consortium, so the chargers will be able to work with all compatible devices, and on the other hand, the new technology guarantees greater efficiency and more convenient use.
Apple MagSafe Duo
Thanks to the Magnetic Power Profile based on Apple’s MagSafe technology, Qi2 compatible devices are in contact with magnets, so they fit stably, which means higher wireless charging speed and lower loss. The new technology can only be used according to the standard, which is certified by the Wireless Power Consortium for each device, ensuring full interoperability with this, and in the future, Qi2 standard chargers will be used with all subsequent Qi2 certified devices. The first devices and chargers according to the Qi2 standard are expected towards the end of this year.
