Qi, pronounced chee, is a wireless charging standard and the only one currently in use by most major phone makers.
Qi wireless charging allows you to charge your smartphone without the use of a cable. A transmitter in a charging pad or stand sends a signal to a receiver in the phone, which then sends a charge to the phone's battery.
Wireless charge pads and stands will only charge phones with this receiver. If your phone is not receiving a charge, most likely it is a phone that is not compatible with wireless charging.
- Apple® began making phones with the Qi receiver starting with the iPhone 8 / 8 Plus.
- Samsung® began making phones with the Qi receiver starting with the Galaxy S6 / S6+ / S6 Edge.
- If you're not seeing the phone begin charging, check the make/model of your phone.
Please note: Many mid-tier Samsung and Android devices were not manufactured with wireless charging capabilities. Please check with your device manufacturer or wireless carrier.
Also make sure your wireless charge pad or stand is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a power strip, extension cord, or power tower, remove any bulky cases and be sure you are putting the back of the phone on the mophie logo.
