There are two types of wireless charging standards for consumer electronics: the Qi standard managed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and the AirFuel standard established by the Duracell-Powermat joint venture. The Qi certification is backed by more than 600 companies, including Apple, Qualcomm, LG, Google, and HTC, and has long been seen as the dominant charging standard for cell phones and tablets. WPC's lead over the AirFuel standard was reinforced when Powermat put out a software update in September 2017 to allow Qi-certified iPhones to charge using its Starbucks chargers, and was finally solidified when Powermat announced in January 2018 that it was joining the WPC.
