Wireless charging has come to stay with most of our high-grade smartphones just like how smartphone manufacturers took off the headphone jack space. But wireless charging has more features we are yet to see. Did you ever think about NFC Wireless Charging?
The NFC Forum made an announcement about the introduction of wireless charging into its standard which is expected to improve the user experience of two billion consumers and businesses using smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices.
How would this new NFC charging option work?
After the adoption of Wireless Charging Specification (WLC) that makes it possible to wirelessly charge small, battery-powered consumer and IoT devices with a smartphone or other NFC charging device at a very low power transfer rate of 1 watt.
“The WLC enables a single antenna in an NFC-enabled device to manage both communications and charging. This solution makes it easier and more convenient to charge low-power IoT devices such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, wireless earbuds, digital pens, and other consumer devices.”
Thought the WLC has been adopted, these new changes would take time for smartphone manufactures to make the necessary changes to adopt it.
