    I have a 10.1 inch tablet that I charge through the micro USB plugged into the wall. It's a very slow charge. I saw where wireless chargers create a very fast charge in a smart phone. Would that work the same way on a tablet?

    In order for a tablet to support wireless quick charging it needs the following things internally.
    • Quick charge induction coil.
    • Firmware that supports quick charging technology.
    If you remove the element of wireless from the equation, your tablet has to have on board chip support for quick charging. Just having a charger with sufficient amperage to handle a rapid charge is not enough.
