Forget your annoying cables with the new Qi Wireless Charger
You know what is going to disappear from your chargers gradually? Wires. Yes, charging would become as easy as dropping your smartphone or a smartwatch on a Qi charging pad also known as Qi wireless charger and that too right from the comforts of your home, office or any place that has a power source to charge!
A Qi Wireless charger makes a perfect solution to boost your device especially when your cable is playing hide and seek with you or if the jack doesn’t fit the cable at all.
Wireless chargers don’t make your devices work differently, but it definitely alters the convenience with which you charge them. Now that the price, size, and efficiency have all eased up a little, putting your smartphone or smartwatch on a Qi wireless charger actually makes more sense.
What is Wireless Charging?
Wireless Charging, also popularly known as Inductive Charging, is a safe, convenient and hassle-free way to charge your smartphone or watches. It only requires two stuffs:
- A charger that is commonly in the form of a mat, a puck, or a stand that is connected to a power source.
- A smartwatch, smartphone, or any other electronic device that is compatible with Qi wireless charging.
That’s all it takes to start charging! Simply throw your phone on the charging base and charging starts instantly.
The irony of wireless charging is that you will still need a wire to connect your wireless charger to the socket! The only difference is that the wire is connected to the charging base instead of your smartphone.
Just find the right spot on the rear of your smartphone and the best spot on the base of the charger, and it is good to charge. If the charger has more built-in coils that brings a much wider charging area, then you can place your phone in any place without the need for a perfect alignment to charge.
However, you need to understand that this type of wireless charging is no magic as it uses the electromagnetic fields to transfer power from a transmitter to a receiver application and Voila! Your battery is charged without any physical cable connections.
What are the different types of Wireless Charging?
Technically, Qi isn’t the only wireless charging standard in the market as there are various competing standards for wireless charging like PMA and A4WP. Nevertheless, the science behind them all is the same. The sad part is that they are declining in influence. Hence Qi is the most popular standard right now. Also, Qi wireless charging is supported by all of the major companies including Apple and Samsung. Thus we will be focusing more on the Qi wireless chargers in this blog.
