How To Use Wireless Charging
Wireless charging is easy. It allows you to charge your mobile device without having to connect to a power source via cables. More convenient than plugging in and unplugging, it provides the neatness of an untethered device, while powering up fairly quick.
More consumer tech products than ever are wireless charging-enabled including the new Apple AirPods and Samsung Galaxy Buds.
Of course, your smartphone is likely to take up most of your wireless charger’s time, so below is a brief list of the latest devices with wireless charging built in:
- Apple: iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, XR, AirPods 2nd Generation
- Samsung: Galaxy Fold, S10, S10+, S9, S9+, Note 8, S8, S8+, S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6, S6 Edge
- Google: Pixel 3, 3XL
- LG: G8 ThinQ, G8s ThinQ, V50 ThinQ, G7 ThinQ, and V40 ThinQ
- Sony: Xperia XZ3 and Xperia XZ2
- Microsoft Lumia: 1520, 1020, 930, 929, 928, 920
- Huawei: Mate 20 Pro
- Xiaomi: Mi 9, Mi 9 Explorer
- BlackBerry: Priv
Now that you have a wireless charging-enabled device to charge, you’ll still need to purchase a wireless charging pad. It doesn’t need to be from the same manufacturer as your smartphone. For example, Nimble wireless charging pads work seamlessly with any Qi-enabled smartphone, and are designed to deliver the fastest charging speed your mobile device allows.
Using a standard wireless charging pad, simply place your mobile device directly on the pad, and charging begins on contact. Be sure the pad itself is connected to a power source. The speed of charging will depend on the model of the charger.
That’s it. Enjoy your cord-free charging existence.
