Default [Wireless charging] Xperia Z1

Hi guys....

As we all know, Sony is member of Wireless Power Consortiuma*, just like Qualcomm, LG, HTC or IKEA - believe it or not)

So my question is - is there any chance to implement Wireless charging on Z1?

I know there's many solution on ebay (I'm not sure there's for Z1 but still...)

I would like to hear some options from engineers or developer who actually knows something about this subject...

So please don't spam thread if you don't have something smart to say...

Thanks

You can buy an official dock for the Z1 from eBay or Sony, the Z1 has 2 charging pins on the left size

According to UK phone retailer Clove, Sony is implementing Wireless Charging with the WCR12 Wireless Charging Cover for Xperia Z2.

Not sure if they will have something similar for Xperia Z1 or not though.

As I said, there is a dock that wirelessly charges your Z1, TBH, as long as some kind of case was touching those pins, and then the case was conductive, any case would do it

Mate do you even know what's Qi or wireless charging?

That pins you talking about is normal charger, only separate from USB and it's well known for all Z1 users...

I was referring on wireless - Google that and you'll get what I thought

Doesn't that Qi wireless charger require your phone to have a specialised case?

Yes it does.

Sony is releasing a Wireless Charging Cover for Xperia Z2 but not sure if they will have one for Z1 and Z.

It's more cover than case or but yeah...of course.

Base is connected to power source and your device must have other side of that charger/base under battery cover or somewhere else to be able to connect the base.

Only wireless "part" of such charger is connection between device and base.

So you don't need usb or magnetic port for charging anymore...

Sounds far too gimmicky to me, just buy the wireless charging dock, no special cases required
