If you have a modern smart phone you may have noticed that it comes with built in wireless charging capability called ‘Qi charging.’ Qi is a trademark name for a thin and smart inductive charging system. Many large gadget companies have standardized on Qi, which means it’s easy to find a charging dish and we thought it might be cool if your electronics project or phone with a microUSB port can recharge itself wirelessly. Thus, we now have four different MicroUSB Modules for different phone/device orientations.
This is the 20mm Forward version of our different Qi MicroUSB Modules. We also have a 20mm Reverse, 85mm Forward, and an 85mm Reverse.
You do need a Qi transmitter to go along with the receivers — which we now carry in the Adafruit store.
