What is a wireless charger?
A wireless charger is a device that enables inductive charging, i.e., wireless charging, and transmits electrical energy via electromagnetic fields to compatible devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches or headphones.
How does a wireless charger or inductive charger work?
The wireless charger contains a primary coil that is connected to a power source. When current is applied, it generates an electromagnetic field. The device to be charged contains a receiver coil (secondary coil) that absorbs the energy from the electromagnetic field and converts it into electrical current to charge the battery. For energy transfer to work, the coils must oscillate at similar frequencies and be in spatial alignment with each other.
The advantage of Qi-compatible chargers is that they work universally with a wide range of devices that also support the Qi standard. This means that one wireless charger can be used to charge a variety of Qi-enabled devices such as smartphones, smartwatches, and headphones, regardless of brand or manufacturer.
Are wireless also always Qi Charger?
Yes, Qi Charger refers to a type of wireless charger that uses the Qi standard. Qi (pronounced "chee") is a global standard for wireless charging developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Qi-compatible chargers and devices use inductive charging to wirelessly transfer power and charge devices.
Is a Qi Charger or inductive charger completely cable-free?
A Qi Charger or inductive charger does not come completely without a cable, as the charging station itself still needs a connection to the power source. As a rule, the charging station is connected to a power socket or a USB port via a power cable to obtain the necessary energy for the charging process. The term "wireless" in this context refers to the absence of cables between the charging station and the device to be charged.
What should I look for when buying a wireless charger?
There are different types and power levels of wireless chargers. These differences can be in the transmission technology, the maximum power (in watts) and additional functions. However, the two main criteria are the supported transmission technology and the power.
Transmission technology: Some wireless chargers are based on the Qi standard, while others use proprietary technologies. Qi chargers are the most widely used and offer universal compatibility for Qi-enabled devices.
Power (watts): The power of wireless chargers varies and affects the charging speed. Common power levels are 5 watts, 7.5 watts, 10 watts, 15 watts and 20 watts. Devices with a higher wattage usually charge faster, provided the device being charged supports the higher wattage.
Some additional features found on various wireless chargers include:
Integrated cooling systems: to prevent overheating during charging.
Multiple charging pads: These allow multiple devices to be charged at the same time.
Vertical stands: To keep the smartphone upright during charging so it can continue to be used.
Adjustable charging power: To ensure that the charger delivers the optimal power for the device in question.
When buying a wireless charger, it is important to consider the compatibility with the device to be charged and the desired power.
FaQs on the topic of wireless chargers:
Can a wireless charger overheat my device?
Wireless chargers can generate heat during charging. However, most devices and charging stations have protection mechanisms to prevent overheating. Some wireless chargers also have built-in cooling systems.
Can cases or covers interfere with wireless charging?
Depending on the thickness and material of the cover, wireless charging can be affected. Thin covers made of plastic or silicone usually do not interfere, while thick or metallic covers can interfere with charging.
Can I continue to use my device while it is being charged wirelessly?
Yes, you can use your device during wireless charging. Some wireless chargers, such as those with vertical stands, are particularly convenient.
Will wireless charging affect the life of my battery?
Wireless charging does not usually have a significant impact on battery life. Modern batteries and charging technologies are designed to handle many charge cycles without significantly affecting capacity or performance.
Can wireless chargers charge multiple devices at the same time?
Some wireless chargers have multiple charging pads or coils that allow multiple devices to be charged at the same time. When buying, check to see if the charger supports this feature.
How fast do wireless chargers charge compared to wired chargers?
Wireless charging can be slower than wired charging in some cases. However, there are wireless chargers with higher power levels that offer faster charging speeds. The actual charging speed depends on the power of the charger and the compatibility with the device being charged.
