Powermat Concedes, Declares Qi the Dominant Wireless Charging Standard
09 January, 2018, 03:46 | Author: Sammy Rose
Powermat, the only contender to the dominant format Qi, has joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and now backs its rival.
It's likely that Powermat and Qi joining forces in large part because of the iPhone's adoption of the Qi standard previous year. The WPC is an open, collaborative standards development group of more than 360 companies. These companies - large and small competitors and ecosystem partners, from all parts of the industry and all parts of the globe - collaborate for a single objective: to design and evolve the world´s most useful, safe and efficient standard for wireless power.
That had itself absorbed the Alliance for Wireless Power back in early 2014, bringing the main wireless charging candidates down from three to two. Rather than pushing individual charging solutions, it built out a network of chargers, with more than 12,000 spewed across the world. Samsung's Galaxy series, for example, long included both Powermat and Qi support, with the promise that no matter what the standard of pad you came across, it would probably be able to recharge your phone. While the SE is by no means a budget phone, it is significantly more affordable than current flagships - and it's likely that the new model will be a more accessible option when compared to the $1000 price tag of the iPhone X, even if the iPhone SE 2 rumor regarding the aesthetic revamp is to be believed. Rather than splitting its attentions between two standards, Apple made a decision to pick Qi wholeheartedly.

This year, especially with the league being out of contention, it's a chance for us to win a competition. I think it's good to learn against the best, but you do stand more of a chance if they don't play.
That, it seems, was the straw that broke Powermat's back.
By joining WPC, it further unifies the wireless charging ecosystem behind the Qi global standard, which will accelerate wireless charging adoption and make it more convenient for consumers to use wireless charging wherever they go.
When wireless charging first arrived for mobile devices there was Powermat and Qi charging standards, with them not being compatible with each other.
