10,000 more public wireless charging points expected in Japan next year

Around 10,000 new wireless charging points will be installed in public places across Japan within the next six months, according to a new report. The chargers, which use the Qi standard, will enable users to recharge compatible mobile devices without plugging in a cable.

Hiroyuki Yoshida, Vice President of Product Planning at NTT Docomo, made the announcement last week. The mobile network operator has already sold more than 1.8 million Qi-capable mobile phones.

At the moment there are around 3000 Qi public charging points situated in approximately 500 locations across Japan, including coffee shops and airport lounges.
