Very soon it may not take you all night to charge your phone with a wireless charger.
On Monday, Qualcomm said its Quick Charge technology will reach Qi wireless chargers, allowing them to quickly fill depleted batteries.
Wireless charging, while convenient, has tended to be slow. At this time, it takes much longer to charge a device wirelessly than it would take to connect it with a cable.

The Quick Charge wireless charging pads will work with the Quick Charge 2.0, 3.0, 4 and 4+ adapters that millions of people already use. Devices currently using Quick Charge include the LG G7 ThinQ and the Razer Phone 2.
Qualcomm also said that there have been wireless chargers on the market claiming they had the fast charging technology, without actually being certified.
Xiaomi, the Chinese manufacturer of mobile phones and scooters,is the first company to manufacture a wireless charging pad with fast charging capabilities, the Mi Wireless Charging Pad.
The news was part of a wave of Qualcomm announcements at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. The world's largest mobile trade fair also saw the announcement of companies working with Qualcomm on 5G and other technologies. Along with the fast-charging news, Qualcomm said its first processor to integrate its 5G modem with its application processor will arrive later this year.
