Wireless Charging – It’s That Simple

Posted by on

What is Wireless Charging?

Wireless charging is a new technology that allows charging over (very) short distances without cables.

The advantage of wireless charging is that charging is quicker and easier, as you don’t have to plug and unplug each time – you just place your device on top of your wireless charging pad.

It provides your device with a clean and neat look, even when charging.


There are various competing standards for wireless charging. The most popular is Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), which has been supported by companies like Samsung, Google and Nokia. However, more and more manufacturers are taking advantage of Qi in some form or another.

 

Compatibility

A few phones have wireless charging built right in.

Other phones need a replacement rear cover or case. These are built to fit specific phones, so make sure you choose the right one.

If a wireless charging cover isn’t available for your phone, you can use a special adapter instead, allowing your devices to support wireless charging.

 

Not everyone is aware of the simplicity and effectiveness of wireless charging—so our friends at WPC produced this humorous video to help show how easy it really is.

Enjoy this new Qi video and share it with your friends.
