Audi Phone Box gets Qi wireless charging

Audi accessory now supports wireless phone charging on the go

During CES 2014 Audi was one of the car manufacturers that turned up at the show showing off its technology. One of the cool features that Audi was talking up was a new trick for its Phone Box. The Phone box originally was intended a as place for the driver to put their phone.

When the device is placed into the Phone Box, it can connect automatically to an antenna on top of the car to improve reception. Audi announced at CES 2014 that the Phone Box now supports wireless charging. That wireless charging is supported vi the Qi charging standard.

There are cases on the market for a number of popular smartphones that support Qi charging standards. That means the driver will need nothing but a new case for their smartphone to support wireless charging while they drive.

“The automotive industry has embraced Qi,” said John Perzow, Vice President of Market Development for the Wireless Power Consortium. “Audi joins Daimler, Toyota, Jeep and others who have already implemented Qi wireless charging in current and future car models. Cars are a natural fit for wireless charging – putting Qi everywhere the consumer needs it.”
