Samsung is working with the Qi standard on its phones, but has a proprietary fast wireless charging method that’s about 40 percent quicker than the standard 5W rate.
Well, it turns out that LG has a Qi Extended Power Profile receiver in the all-new V30, provided by IDT. The phone is compatible with standard 5W pads, but step it up to just above 8W for EPP-compliant pads. The chaebol claims that this is the first phone that works with EPP.
Nothing close to the 15W promised, which is already a decent rate with, say, wired charging. But it’s faster than 5 watts, right?
