freescaleWireless charging is convenient in the sense that it does not require users to plug in and pull out cables when they need to charge their devices. Just place it on the wireless charging mat and they’re good to go. However if anything, wireless charging is a bit slower than if you were to connect your phone directly with a cable, so if you’re in need for a quick charge, wireless charging might not be the way to go.

That being said, Freescale has recently announced the world’s first 15 watt Qi-compatible wireless charger. Given that most wireless chargers tend to be of the 5 watt variety, Freescale’s solution will in theory be three times as fast, thus allowing users to wirelessly charge their devices in a much shorter amount of time.

The good news is that this isn’t a pipedream as Freescale’s wireless charging solution is expected to be available in Q1 2015, meaning that manufacturers should be able to get their hands on the company’s reference designs and start creating wireless chargers with Freescale’s technology inside of them.

Even better news is that this technology will also be able to work with the PMA wireless charging standard, so if your device charges via Qi or PMA, you should be able to find chargers with Freescale’s technology that will support it.
