Sony WCH10 Qi Wireless ChargerIf you cast your mind back to March, we reported that Sony would launch some products to wirelessly charge the Xperia Z2 during the summer. This included the Sony WCR12 Wireless Charging Cover and Sony WCH10 Wireless Charging Plate.

Well the latter of these two accessories, the WCH10 Wireless Charger (FCC ID: PY7-AC0010) has just passed through the FCC. The FCC documents confirm that Sony is using the Qi inductive power standard and in some of the tests it used a Nokia 920 to see how well it worked.

The device is listed as having an input of 12V ~1A, but no further information could be gleaned from the documents. The charger and wireless Xperia Z2 cover are rumoured to launch in June 2014.

    So to use it I need to connect something to my phone every time or use a second back panel ? Sorry but this doesn’t make any sense, why would I want to buy that ?

    It is not wireless charging if you have to connect anything to the exterior of your phone to charge it…

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Exactly. Its really stupid.

    Dock already does an amazing job.

  • Vector Teh

    It is wireless charging, considering if the back cover has no wires at all lol

  • spatch

    This is just Sony testing the waters to see if any Xperia fans really want wireless charging in future devices. I say yes — build it in!

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    I want a wiyerless charger that i can stand 10feet away from the charging dock playing with my device while it wiyerless charging.. That will be awesome. But if it just wiyerless charge and i need to put my device on top of the docking plate, I rather used normal charging docking.

  • Colby Leong

    Then they could get rid of the charging ports on the left hand side of their phones.

  • Tjaldid

    you mean the Pins? or the USB connector? QI doesn’t charge as fast as USB/pins and the pins are handy so you don’t have to open the Flap however you require a specifically designed dock where with QI any charger works but it is as I said at a slower speed.

  • Lunkz

    No. The Z1 does not have a wireless charge.

  • Lunkz

    10 feet would a waste of energy, maybe in 30 years.
