Wireless Power Consortium to showcase 60 new Qi wireless charging products

The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) announced that it
will be exhibiting and demonstrating over 60 new Qi-enabled products from
October 4 through 8 during CEATEC 2011, in the Makuhari Messe convention center
in Tokyo, Japan.

The exhibits will be housed in the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC),
within the “Home and Personal Zone” in Hall 3. Products on display
will include Qi-enabled furniture, car consoles, mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers,
clocks, battery packs, and more.

Qi, the global standard for wireless charging, allows
devices to be charged just by placing them on any Qi charging surface without
connecting cords or wires. Qi offers simplicity, convenience, and flexibility
by ensuring wireless charging interoperability between any Qi-enabled device
and any Qi charger, regardless of manufacturer or brand.

Just like Bluetooth set the standard for exchanging data
over short distances or Wi-Fi set the standard for wireless networking, Qi sets
the standard for wireless charging. Compatibility between all Qi products is
assured when you see the Qi logo.

“Consumers want the freedom to charge their devices
without cords and the flexibility to charge different types of devices without
having to buy separate chargers for each,” said Menno Treffers, chairman,

“The wide range and number of new Qi products at
CEATEC is a direct result of that consumer demand. With industry support from
more than 90 of the most influential companies, Qi is rapidly expanding into
consumer electronics, cars, furniture, and appliances, with more innovative Qi
products coming to market all the time,” Treffers added.
