Phone Chargers: Why go wireless?

Keeping our phones charged is essential to ensuring you can use your phone throughout the day to keep in touch with your friends and family. Cables and wired chargers are slowly becoming a thing of the past, and wireless chargers are becoming increasingly popular. You may be considering trying one but have a few questions. In this article we look at why you may wish to go wireless with your phone charger. 

How does a wireless charger work?

Wireless charging technology can seem really fascinating to us smartphone users; how does it charge a phone without physically touching it? Well, the charging is done via wireless induction. The electric current goes through a coil in the charger and creates a magnetic field. This fields generates an electric current in the coil within the phone, which charges it. 

What are the advantages of a wireless charger? 

One of the main advantages of a wireless charger is the simple convenience. Rather than fiddle about with wires to find the right one for your device, untangle it, and connect it to your phone you can simply connect it wirelessly. Depending on the type used, you typically place the phone on the charging pad and let the charging commence.  

Wireless charging is also compatible with most new smartphones. If you’re unsure if yours is compatible, check the user manual or manufacturer information. This means that if you have a wireless charger, you can likely use it with different phones rather than switching through a choice of cables. 

They are also great to stay tidy without messy cables. This is great if you need to charge your phone on a desktop or workspace as it ensures the area stays organised and clutter free. 

Wireless charging can also be a solution for situations where you find you’ve lost the cable for your phone, or the charging port is not behaving as expected. This can save you the cost of a repair or replacing your phone entirely. 

Are there any disadvantages? 

The main disadvantage of a wireless charger is that if you have an older model of phone, non-smart phone, or a phone that does not support wireless charging then it simply won’t be suitable.  

The choice is yours!
