Is wireless charging safe?

This is the reason the WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) have introduced and developed the global Qi Wireless Charging Standard. In addition, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) has declared that there are no known hazards around Qi wireless charging.

In many ways, the technology is actually safer than traditional cable charging. With no need for contact with cable connectors, and the ability to encase the charger in hard, splash proof plastic, there is less chance of electric shocks, and fires. Inductive wireless charging has been used in toothbrushes, and in medical devices for years, as it is safer to be used in more environments than traditional methods.

Why does my business need wireless charging?

Now that there is a universally recognized standard for wireless charging, and all of the top smartphone manufacturers have committed to Qi, it’s only a matter of time before almost all of your customers or guests will have a device capable of wireless charging.

At the moment, wireless charging is an unexpected convenience for your customers which boosts customer experience, one which you can use to drive footfall and brand appeal. Soon, it will be another necessity. However, Chargifi’s solution doesn’t stop with industry grade wireless charging hardware. Why not boost your guest’s experience while also gathering actionable insights about your customers? Chargifi’s Wireless Charging Spots gather usage data from your customers, which can be combined with data from your existing CRM to inform business decisions, and as a touch point to trigger customer experience-boosting events to boost brand loyalty and revenue.

What is the Wireless Power Consortium?

Chargifi is a member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Founded in 2008, it is the Qi standard development group comprising of 600+ companies, and Chargifi is proud to be a driving force in working to design and evolve the world’s most useful, safe and efficient standard for wireless power. With companies such as Sony, Apple, Google, Panasonic, LG, and Toshiba on the Board of Management, the WPC is leading the world of consumer electronics to a universally accepted standard of wireless charging with the top electronic innovators and influencers in support.

How does wireless charging work?

Qi wireless charging uses an inductive method of charging where charging happens by placing a Qi-enabled device on a transmitter coil. The mobile device doesn’t receive power through a traditional cable but through an inductive electromagnetic field that is generated by coils in the charging device (transmitter) and then picked up by coils in the receiving device (receiver).
