With so many techno-terms flying about these days, it can sometimes feel a bit daunting when choosing a new product. One of the newest areas to get your head around is ‘Wireless Charging’. In a nutshell, it is technology that allows charging smart devices without cables over a short distance.
It can also be known as Inductive Charging. “Qi Charging”, a standard of Wireless Charging, has almost become a synonymous term, such as Bluetooth has to Wireless Connectivity.
What do Wireless Chargers even look like?
Wireless Chargers normally come in the form of a pad, plate, or even a small stand, which your device can be placed onto for charging. Most new devices are now compatible with Wireless Charging and it is becoming ever more popular as a way of charging your phone, watch, or tablet.
What’s so good about Wireless Chargers?
It’s easier to charge wirelessly, especially on a convenient pad that your device can be placed on. You also don’t have to hunt around for a socket, and it looks much neater than wires draped everywhere!
Will my phone work with Wireless Charging?
Some phones have Wireless Charging built in, something that is becoming more common. But if your phone has not, you may need to get a replacement rear cover or case in order for you to use Wireless Charging. If one is not available for your phone, then it may be that you need an internal or external adaptor instead.
