Qi wireless charging pad from Samsung drops by the FCC for a teardown


Samsung looks to be attempting to retain dominance in the tech industry and this time it’s in the area of wireless charging. As you might remember from CES, Qualcomm is a big partner with the Alliance For Wireless Power (A4WP), which hopes to debut a newer wireless technology utilizing Bluetooth. Surprisingly, this new device doesn’t utilize it, but instead it uses one of the current standards Qi.  Speculated as a preparation for a wide release, Samsung has brought this charging plate to the FCC where they have torn down the device. Underneath the top plate lies powerful technology including an electromagnet powering the device. The FCC provided teardown images of which you can find after the break.
