THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WIRELESS CHARGING
What it is, how it works and why you want it.
Wireless Charging, also known as Inductive Charging, is a convenient and cable-free way to charge your electronic devices. It requires two things:
- A charger, usually in the form of a puck, a mat or a stand that connects to a power source.
- A smartphone, smartwatch or other electronic device that is compatible with wireless charging.
Now you’re ready to charge! Simply place your phone onto the charging base and charging starts immediately.
WHY WIRELESS CHARGING?
Connecting to a wireless charger is faster and easier than plugging in cables. Just set your phone down onto the charger, and it starts charging immediately - no need to free up your other hand to find and connect a cable. Wireless chargers also protect your phone from damage caused by repeated connecting and disconnecting, and are more robust than charging cables which may end up showing signs of wear and tear.
Imagine giving your iPhone or Samsung phone a little battery boost every time you put it down. With wireless charging, you can. Wireless chargers come in all shapes and sizes. With one on your nightstand, on your desk, even in your car, it’s easy to keep even the hardest working device charged all day.
Wireless charging is just as fast as using conventional chargers. A 5-watt charging pad will charge your smartphone just as quickly as a 5-watt/1 Amp wall charger – which is usually the kind supplied with your smartphone.
