Toyota Avalon 2013 coming with Wireless Charging Qi

After finding their way into our homes and offices, wireless charging systems for cell phones and other electronic devices are now beginning to make their appearance in automobiles. General Motors has already introduced a wireless cell phone mat and so has Chrysler's Mopar division.

Now, Toyota has joined the initiatives to integrate Qi charging in vehicles for the first time. Perhaps it’s a lesson for the Apple, who claim to be the most innovative smartphone technology company and at the same time fears to bring wireless charging features in its iPhones. It’s noteworthy that a lot of users are anxious to see wireless charging in next generation Apple iPhone 6.

If a mobile phone doesn't come with built-in Qi compatibility (like iPhone 4S), then you will have to purchase a separate accessory such as a sleeve or a special back cover, as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Randy Stephens, chief engineer of Toyota Avalon, commented on the new Qi feature:
Pioneering the ability to charge with no wires or connectors by simply putting devices in the car console is an intuitive innovation which reflects Toyota’s continuing commitment to improve the consumer experience. We see wireless charging as an important feature that helps enhance the high-technology theme and consumer interface offered by Avalon Limited which is already equipped with three TFT color screens and Intellitouch™ controls.

Qi Wireless Charging Technology

Qi is the universal standard for wireless charging technology, which means any device that is Qi enabled can be charged using any third party Qi charger accessory. Other than smartphones Qi wireless charging is also used to charge many other gadgets such as gaming controllers, wireless speakers, battery and more. At present there are 34 smartphone models that can be charged with a Qi wireless charging accessory.

Recently Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Google have brought out smartphone devices that are capable of kinetically induced or Qi Charging, the future standard for wireless charging. Nokia Lumia 920, Google Nexus 4 and Samsung Note 2 are the example of such wireless charging supported smartphones.

By Nokia introducing Qi wireless charging supported Windows Phone 8 smartphone, Lumia 920, wireless charging technology has begin to come in the limelight, with a number of new Witricity charging accessories and more wireless charging enabled devices reaching out in the market.
