The Quest for Universal Compatibility

The Quest for Universal Compatibility

Those of you who have paid attention to how wireless chargers have evolved over the years should know that the quest to refine a perfect QI compatible wireless charger has been long and strenuous. 

Before there was an ENERQi or any other high-end wireless chargers for that matter, the question wasn't so much 'how to make wireless charging work' but rather how to do it consistently and without limitations.

In this regard, let us point out that the journey wasn't easy and that the technology is still evolving to this day. We say this with the knowledge that wireless charging is constantly changing to fit the engineering of modern smart devices, which in turn, evolve to meet the expectations of the general public.

Although wireless charging as a technology isn't exactly brand new, the concept has to be revisited every time a new Qi-compatible smartphone or tablet hits the market. To that end, every wireless charger needs to be accommodating to not only existing devices but to effectively predict and adapt to how newer models might behave compatibility-wise.

Smartphones and Wireless Chargers - the Long Road to Universal Compatibility

The main concern with wireless chargers has always been how accommodating they are, especially in regards to their iPhone compatibility for a few reasons. We say this because it used to be that Apple would only guarantee that their Qi-compatible iPhones and iPads would only charge effectively by employing their proprietary wireless chargers.

Now, this has changed in recent years for both Apple and Android devices, many thanks to the Wireless Power Consortium and their efforts to make Qi charging the de facto industry standard. Before this, there were several wireless charging technologies for manufacturers to choose from, each with its faults and limitations.

With a state of the art charger like ENERQi, you get an impressive wireless charger compatibility standard; the kind of standard that allows you to charge both Android and Apple devices with virtually no issues whatsoever. 

Then again, this is the result of a very long journey of research and development, one that has enabled the charger to build upon the faults of earlier versions in order to create a modern, universally compatible wireless charger.

The Qi Ecosystem

You will undoubtedly notice after some basic research that not all wireless chargers perform well on a consistent basis. This is especially the case with Qi-compatible devices that require specific charging standards or routines.

A quick search query will tell you that some chargers simply cannot meet their ideal output if the device in question uses a case that interferes with the charging process. This leads people to look for wireless charging compatible case solutions outside the market itself, simply because many chargers fail to deliver case-friendly charging.

With a charger like ENERQi, you can rest assured that you will get a consistent charge regardless of your device's case. As long as the device isn't using a metal case, the charge will be as consistent as your device allows it to be; provided, of course, that all the physical requirements are fully met.

Last but not least, bear in mind that within the Qi ecosystem, some devices are easier to charge than others. With certain smartphones, for example, you might even need to employ a separate wireless charging adapter to get an optimal charge. This only tends to happen with low-end phones and tablets but it does happen ever so often.
