    Question Qi charging through wood?

    Hey I was wondering if qi charging would work through 2cm of wood and if anyone knew of a good charger that can do this and is 4cm wide (not thick) or thinner?

    Under the Qi specification, "low power" for inductive transfer means a draw of 0 to 5 W. Systems that fall within the scope of this standard are those that use inductive coupling between two planar coils to transfer power from the power transmitter to the power receiver. The distance between the two coils is typically 5 mm. It is possible to extend that range to at least 40 mm.

    How you extend teh range from 5mm to 4cm I don't know. I don't believe wood would block the signal much.

    Thx, I read somewhere about how it could pass through non conductive materials but I wanted to check, I also read about one that could transfer over a few feet

    Do you know of a qi charger with over a 2cm range?
