The Ultimate Guide to Wireless Charging
Master the art of cable-free wireless charging from Anker with comprehensive guide to the best wireless chargers.
Wireless charging, also known as inductive charging or cordless charging, is a method of wireless power transfer. It utilizes electromagnetic induction to charge portable devices efficiently.
Wireless charging employs electromagnetic induction through a hidden mechanism. A transmitter coil in the charging base emits a signal to find a compatible receiver coil, like in smartphones. Upon connection, electromagnetic induction facilitates seamless power transfer.
Wireless charging is used to power various devices, including portable chargers, vehicles, power tools, electric toothbrushes, and medical equipment. The convenience and adaptability of wireless charging make it a preferred choice in multiple contexts, contributing to a more efficient and accessible charging experience for users.
To ensure the safety of your wireless charger, verify its adherence to the Qi standard. Products compliant with this standard are rigorously tested for safety, interoperability, and energy efficiency in independent labs, such as such as Anker Qi2 wireless chargers. Only those passing these tests are awarded Qi certification and permitted to display the Qi logo.
When purchasing a charger, look for designations like 'Qi wireless charging' or 'Qi-compatible' on the packaging. Also, check for the Qi-Certified Label, which indicates adherence to standards set by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), the organization behind the Qi wireless charging standard.
1. Standards Compatibility
Choose wireless chargers that adhere to industry standards such as Qi standard, recognized by major phone manufacturers including Samsung and Apple. A reliable Qi wireless chargers typically offers safety features such as overvoltage and overcharge protection.
2. Charging Speed and Efficiency
Consider charging speed in relation to your device. Wireless chargers with lower wattage (5W) can charge phones with higher wireless charging capabilities, but at slower rates. For a future-proof choice, opt for chargers supporting up to 15W like Anker MagGo Wireless Charging Station (Foldable 3-in-1) to enable faster charging with compatible devices.
3. Other Features
When selecting a wireless charger, focus on durable materials and compact designs for space efficiency, and non-slip features. You should also consider cooling features for optimal performance. Wireless chargers with sophisticated cooling mechanisms are better equipped to mitigate potential overheating issues.
