If you have a modern smart phone you may have noticed that it comes
with built in wireless charging capability called 'Qi charging.' Qi is
a trademark name for a thin and smart inductive charging system. Many
large gadget companies have standardized on Qi, which means it's easy
to find a charging dish and we thought it might be cool if your
Arduino project can recharge itself wirelessly. Thus, we now have a Qi
charging receiver module as seen here here.
This is just the inductive charging Qi receiver. It will work with
any Qi charger base transmitter that will work well with any standard
inductive charger base. Simply solder two wires to the V+ and Gnd pins
on the Qi module and place the item you want charged onto a charging
base. The receiver chip manages the coil so that you'll always get 5V
and 500mA. If the coil is too far it will simply not activate at all.
The driver chip is an integrated receiver called the BQ51013B from
TI. Since its a Qi charger it can only be used with Qi transmitters!
If you want a simpler inductive charger, check out our 5V charger set
- it isn't Qi compatible but used together it works quite well!
To demo it, we wired the module to a Lipo-Charger and a LiPo battery.
Now we have a wirelessly-rechargeable battery! Note that you don't get
the battery or lipo charger in your order, that's just how we're
showing it off. You can even upgrade any device that takes classic USB
5V and up to 500mA. The coil comes on a metallic sticker which is used
to shield the device from the coil. Make sure the coil is facing out
towards the charger when you install it into your project, or it wont
work at all! … more
