Wednesday 20 October 2021 | 15:33 CET | News
The NFC Forum approved and adopted the Wireless Charging Specification (WLC) 2.0. The WLC 2.0 makes it easier and more convenient to charge low-power devices such as wireless earbuds, smart watches, digital stylus pens, headsets, fitness trackers and other consumer products using smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices at a power transfer rate of up to one watt. It allows for wireless charging by enabling a single antenna in an NFC-enabled device to manage both communications and charging.
