It won't be long until you no longer have to choose between the convenience of a wireless charger and the speed of a quick charger, as the Wireless Power Consortium has just rolled out a new version of its Qi standard that supports 15W wireless charging, similar to wired Quick Chargers currently available.

This update will bring wireless charging in line with Quick Charge compatible devices that are capable of charging a phone from 0 to 60 percent in around 30 minutes.

“With a deployed base of well over 50 million units, hundreds of registered products and users all around the world, we understand the importance of a specification that supports innovation,” said Menno Treffers, chairman of the WPC. “This release marks an important milestone for Qi, introducing the first higher power class and paving the way for our members to address more demanding applications with products that work seamlessly with the installed base of Qi-compatible products.”
