The NFC Forum has announced a new standard for low-power wireless charging using the NFC hardware in phones. Called Wireless Charging Specification (WLC), the spec calls for wireless charging up to 1 watt, suitable for a phone to charge a smaller device such as a smartwatch, fitness tracker, earbuds case, or advanced stylus. This new standard is separate from the Qi standard currently used by phones with wireless charging. WLC would enable phones with NFC to offer "reverse" wireless charging only; it does not enables phones to use wireless chargers.

New Standard Enables Wireless Charging Using NFC Coil

Rick, Does this mean this new standard of wireless charging will be like a WIFI Signal ? If one of these future enabled phones goes into a Restaurant or a Shopping Mall will it automatically start charging off of area wide infrastructure hardware ? Am I miss-understanding this news release ?
The range of NFC is only an inch or two.
