HOW WIRELESS CHARGING WORKS

When I first head the word “wireless charging” I had lot of thoughts flowing through my head. Electric current flying in the air unseen which possibly might shock someone if there’s an issue with the charger”.

Many might think like me as well, I know is a dumb thinking but don’t judge me. Nevertheless, in this little post I’ll through light on how wireless charging works. And you can get it to work on any pretty android device as well but that will be later at the end of this post.

Now the question how dose wireless charging work? If you did not miss physics class in school, your really going to get a clear picture of how it works from this given explanation. Wireless chargers uses magnetic induction. The charger use magnetism to transmit energy. First, when you place a smartphone on the wireless charger.

The Current coming from the wall power outlet moves through the wire in the wireless charger, creating a magnetic field. The field creates a current in the coil inside the device placed on the wireless charger. This magnetic energy produce is then converted to electrical energy, that is then used to charge the battery of your device. Note that Device must have the appropriate hardware in them to support wireless charging- any device without the necessary coil can’t charge wirelessly.

To me I really prefer the Qi ( pronounced chee) standard of wireless charging as it supports magnetic resonance which means the device can be up to 45MM away from the wireless charger’s surface rather then touching it directly. Although it is not as efficient as magnetic induction, more over there some given advantages, you can place the wireless charger under a table surface and then place your device on top to charge it. It also allow you charge multiple devices with just a single charging pad, and have it all charge at once.

Well I really find it hard to understand why most Android OEMs have been moving  away from wireless charging and Samsung just kept it on their high end smart phones I think is because of production cost.  couple of phones that support wireless charging

Now How to get wireless charging to work on your phone. Just in case you don’t have any of the devices mentioned above, there lots of methods to apply to achieve this objective but the easiest way is by using a stick-on wireless charging adapter.

Stick-on adapters offer a more universal solution. If your phone doesn’t have the circular RF induction coil that’s the core of any wireless charging device, just add one on. It a very flexible solution that only  needs a few basic models to cover almost any phone.

The good thing about stick-on adapters is availability. All you have to do is just to place one of these external pads up to your device charging port (USB- C, Apple Lightning,or micro USB),stick it right at the back of your device and your good to go. They’re also very cheap compare to the wireless charging cases, and there very slim enough to fit underneath the plastic of a standard, non -charging phone case.Buy wireless charging case
