Benefits of Wireless Charging 

Wireless charging is all about convenience. It’s designed to keep your wireless-enabled devices charged without much effort, or change in behavior. Except for not plugging in.

For example, a strategic deployment of wireless chargers allows you to lay your iPhone down at night, wake up to a full charge, top-off while driving to work (if needed), and continue to power up at your office workstation. A late afternoon stop at your local cafe may offer wireless charging while you wait for your order. One could navigate their entire day without ever having to plug in.

Sound refreshing?

While you may sacrifice some charge speed when avoiding the plug, the ease of cordless charging becomes somewhat second nature after only a few days. You’re essentially charging while resting your device wherever you’d normally place it when not in use.

But how exactly does wireless charging work?

How Wireless Chargers Work

First, your device must be wireless charging compatible. Qi-enabled smartphones are one of today’s most common type of wireless devices. Then, you need a compatible charger which is also Qi-certified or certified by another wireless technology manufacturer. Simply position your device on the wireless charger, as instructed, and bam! You’re wirelessly charging. Wireless chargers emit an alternating magnetic field via an internal transmitter coil, which in turn induces an alternating voltage (or current) in the receiver coil, located inside your device. This transferred energy is used to charge up your device.

Have a case on your device? Not to worry. Nimble wireless chargers will still push power through cases up to 3mm thick.

Keep in mind, you’ll need at least a single cable, which runs from an energy source to the charger itself. However, once the pad is connected to power, you’ll never have to fuss with cables or wires again when seeking a charge.

The industry-required LED indicator light on the charger is quite helpful, too. It lets you know when your device is receiving power. It also flashes as a warning if there is interference, a foreign object detected, or the device is not aligned properly on the charger.

Simple. Easy. Second nature.
