Testronic to Test Wireless Recharging System

Testronic Labs has been chosen by the Wireless Power Consortium as the testing center for a wireless recharging system for mobile devices. Burbank-based Testronic will test new devices using the Qi charging system to make sure they are operable with previously certified Qi devices. The Qi (pronounced chee) system works by placing a mobile device on a charging surface without having to connect with wires or cords. In October, consumer manufacturers introduced 60 new Qi-enabled products, including mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers, clocks, and battery packs, at the 2011 Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, Japan’s largest IT and electronics exhibition and conference held in Tokyo. “We see the implementation of Qi as one of the most impactful developments for the users of mobile devices, such as cell phones, tablets, and other devices that are part of all of our personal and professional lives,” said Testronic Labs Chief Technology Officer Johan Craeybeckx in a prepared statement. The Wireless Power Consortium is a cooperative of independent companies that sets international standards for wireless charging.
