WCH10Rumours have been around for months that Sony Mobile would launch a wireless charging kit for the Xperia Z2 and today the company has formally unveiled its products. This includes the WCR12 Wireless Charging Cover, designed specifically for the Xperia Z2, and the WCH10 Wireless Charging Plate.

Sony is using the Qi wireless charging standard, so any Qi charger can be used to charge up the Wireless Charging Cover WCR12. Qi technology allows power to transfer from a transmission pad to a compatible receiver using electromagnetic induction. No official pricing details have been announced for either product, but to get an idea, see our previous post.

The design of the Wireless Charging Cover WCR12 is very similar to the Style Cover Stand SCR10 for the Xperia Z2. The Qi certified cover acts as a protective case and desk stand and will be available in black and white colours. The case itself weighs 66 grams and the dimensions (with the Xperia Z2 inside) are 149 x 78 x 14 mm.

Sony Wireless Charging Plate WCH10

The Wireless Charging Plate WCH10 is a stylish charging pad with black top and metal sides. The WCH10 Wireless Charging Plate produces 5W of power (1A output), which will charge your Xperia Z2 (using the WCR12 cover) or any other Qi compatible device. The plate has a diameter of 78mm and a reasonably long cable length of 1.8m. It also has a white LED which pulsates whilst the device is charging and moves to a solid light when fully charged.
