The wireless technology is aimed to make charging effortless for smart phones, smart watches to appliances by eliminating jumbled cables.
Wireless charging is also referred to as Qi technology. Qi (pronounced as “chee”) is a Chinese word for “air energy flow”. The various benefits like convenience, mobility and flexibility drive the wireless charging market. The technology is growing at a steady pace and is now available for all sorts of Qi-enabled devices.
Here is an overview of wireless charging technology and the benefits they offer.
Wireless world: Pay off in comfort.
Wireless solutions are invading smart homes and offices. Just “drop and go” on the surface and watch your device charge. Finally, an end to cords!
The overall objective of a ‘wireless world’ is to elevate the quality of life. Going wireless eliminates the cable mazes, offer greater security and more efficient use of energy.
No more fumbling with cords or hunting the USB-c cables when you need some power. Without having to plug or unplug, there’s also no wear and tear on the smartphone sockets.
As the devices are powered through the surface, easily eliminate the cable jungle and create a neater appearance in your living space. Also, add a modern touch to your home or office décor with flexibility to charge anywhere.
Qi charging is the universal standard, and multiple wireless devices can be charged on the pad without any hassle.
Since the charging occurs inside a hermetically sealed environment, there is no risk of electric shock poised by cables damages and plug compatibility issues. Thus, enabling a higher level of safety.
Upon a full charge, the charger automatically shuts off. This means less energy and no overheated battery.
How wireless works?
– Wireless charging uses a base station or charging pad to transmit power using electromagnetic waves.
– These waves are then picked up by a receiver coil embedded in the back of your phone that transforms the waves into electricity. This electricity is then used to charge the smartphone.
Wireless charging is a promising technology. Ease of use and no cable mess offer convenience over USB cable.
Despite being around for a few years already, wireless charging still hasn’t become a critically important technology in the gadget market. However, now that the trend is beginning to congregate around the Wireless Power Consortium and Qi, we would see some more consumer adoptions.
The market for wireless charging will grow quite strong in the next years, as engineers have their arrow-eye on energy efficiency, shorter charge time and higher power density. Meanwhile, the technology is moving from transmitters that charge single devices to transmitters that can charge several devices simultaneously.
