Qi2 vs. MagSafe: The Quest for 15W Wireless Charging Speed

Qi2 vs. MagSafe: The Quest for 15W Wireless Charging Speed

The world is embracing wireless technology from smartphones to charging. But the iPhone 15’s MagSafe wireless charging technology maxes in at 7.5W.

That could change as Qi2 becomes a brand new standard open for use called Qi2. It’s based on Apple’s MagSafe all the way to those halo-like magnet rings which snap chargers into place.

Faster Wireless Charging

Wireless charging is a useful technology that makes it easy to use your phone or tablet without a cable. Also, it can be quicker than conventional wireless charging, particularly if you are using a quick-charging pad or stand. The devices typically charge at a rate of 50 percent or more in 30 minutes, and a complete charge in 90 minutes.

But, you must be aware that the wireless chargers you choose are not made equal. You’ll need to look for ones with the highest watts for a better idea of whether it’ll be able to charge your device with the speed you need.

Apple’s new iPhone 15 phones will support high-speed wireless charging, up to 15W, but only MagSafe as well as MFi (Made for the iPhone) accessories are able to reach this speed. According to a new article from ChargerLab an energy specialist site with an impressive background, this is an important change for Apple, which previously limited the openness of wireless charging to 7.5W and only offered its proprietary MagSafe technology with 15W.

Battery Health Management

A new feature found in the latest iPhone 15 series might help maintain the health of your battery. This option, expected to be nestled within the settings menu for battery, enables users to set the highest charge limit for their smartphone’s battery. Should the set threshold be to 90% for example then the device will cease charging after it hits that level. Apple already has an equivalent option, known as Optimized Battery Charging, which detects the patterns of users and stops charging at 80% around the time that users usually disconnect their phone.

Another report by 9to5Mac indicates that the iOS 17 RC code suggests a possible new feature for managing the health of your battery. It will allow users to know when the battery was manufactured and when it was first employed, and also the cycle count of their battery. It will make a great supplement to the section on battery information in the Settings app. The new feature could be limited to the iPhone 15 range as it requires MagSafe compatibility for its implementation.

Compatibility via MagSafe accessories

The iPhone 15 is equipped with certain upgrades that are hard to miss, but there’s an additional option that might prove more compelling. The latest Pro models are compatible with Qi2 as an open wireless charging technology that makes use of magnets instead induction.

Qi2 opens up MagSafe to manufacturers from third parties which means that you’ll see MagSafe accessories appearing on the market at budget-friendly prices. Additionally, Qi2 is expected to enable charging for latest iPhones with up to 15W, significantly more than Apple’s 7.5W standard.

Make sure you keep the iPhone 15 safe and stylish by using this stylish MagSafe case by PITAKA. It’s built from lightweight but robust aramid fiber and utilizes 3D Injection Molding Labeling technology that allows you to apply MagSafe markings without adding bulk. In addition, it comes with the MagEZ Car Mount Pro to permit you to place your phone in any orientation while driving, and an extra cable strap in the rear that keeps your cord within the reach of your phone.

Eco friendly wireless charging

Over the years, a lot of us had wondered when the devices would eventually remove the wire, and wireless charging is a major advancement in that direction. The iPhone 15 series allows users to power up their phones with an electrical cable. However, it also has the potential to change the way we use other items, including cordless televisions, durable medical implants, and factories that are battery-free.

Using a charger that uses wireless induction to charge your phone or another device cuts down on the usage of power and inefficient wires. This helps to reduce the environmental footprint. This also reduces the burden that comes with plugging and unplugging cables that can end up wearing out ports and cables in time.

Certain companies are making the most of the chance to develop ecologically friendly wireless charging stations. For example, Reveal’s Nature Tech collection features minimalist natural-inspired designs that limit the amount of waste produced and is made from cork or wood, which is an environmentally friendly material. Reveal’s charging stations offer up to 15W of wireless charging on iPhones and other Qi-enabled devices.
