An introduction to wireless charging: what you need to know

One of the most useful pieces of technology nowadays is a wireless charging pad. A wireless charger can make charging your electronic devices, especially your iPhone or Android, quite convenient, whether you put it on your desk at work or on your nightstand at home.

Wireless charging allows you to recharge your device's battery without plugging it in. In most cases, a wireless charger will be in the form of a pad or any other surface that you can set your device on to charge.

Putting your phone on a wireless charger, walking away, and coming back to a fully charged device may feel like magic at first. There's, however, nothing magical about wireless charging. And in this guide, we’ll explain in an easy-to- understand way how wireless charging works.

In addition, our collection of top-tier wireless charging accessories and gadgets can help you make the most of this fantastic and convenient technological feature.

What is wireless charging and how does it work?

Many different kinds of phone accessories now have a wireless charging feature. The term "wireless charger" refers to a pad or station that allows you to charge your wireless-enabled devices without having to plug them in. Wireless charging is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, provided they have the necessary hardware and software. This method of charging has become increasingly popular due to its simplicity and efficiency.

The internal structure of a wireless charging accessory or gadget includes an electromagnetic coil. These electromagnetic coils in the charging base function much like an induction coil in a standard charger, producing a magnetic field that acts like an antenna and transfers power to your device. However, how does your device absorb this electromagnetic energy? They do so via a receiver. The energy released by the induction coil is picked up by a smaller electromagnetic coil inside your phone, tablet, or any other compatible device and then stored in the battery.

That's what happens in the background when we set our phones or other devices down on a wireless charger.

Some of the main benefits of wireless charging

Wireless charging is most commonly associated with smartphones, although the technology is also present in other gadgets. This includes tablets, since they are pretty much identical to smartphones. Additionally, many smart watches and other wearables can be charged wirelessly as well.

  • Convenient charging

Not having to connect a cable to charge your device is another perk of wireless charging. Have you ever tried charging your phone only to find it still uncharged hours later because the cable connection wasn't set right? This is no longer an issue thanks to wireless charging. Simply setting your phone down on the pad will initiate the charging process. There will also be less strain on your device's charging port because you won't have to constantly plug and unplug the cable.

  • Less clutter

One of the biggest advantages of wireless charging is right there in its name. Eliminating the need for charging cables is a major benefit of wireless charging. All you need is the power cord to the charging pad. And thanks to high-quality products, such as NYTSTND’s multi-device wireless chargers, you can now enjoy a truly clutter-free lifestyle.

  •  It eliminates compatibility issues
Another benefit of ditching the charging cable is not having to worry about mismatched connectors, which is a constant concern among tech enthusiasts. No longer will the absence of a Lightning, Micro USB, or USB-C cord be cause for alarm.

Any Qi-enabled gadget can be charged from any Qi-enabled charger pad. You also don’t have to go through the stress of purchasing different wireless chargers for multiple devices. The 4-in-1 multi-device wireless charging station from NYTSTND for example, ticks all of the boxes. Providing you with a sleek and convenient way to keep multiple devices charged at the same time.
