Pros and Cons of Wireless Charging Explained

Wireless charging has been the talk of the town for quite a while now. However, statistics show that only 29% of users prefer wireless charging. With built-in wireless charging furniture being in the works, one may wonder why wireless charging hasn’t really taken off. Oyprice is here to answer all your questions and also give you a quick overview of the pros and cons of wireless charging.

What is Wireless Charging?

Going by the dictionary definition, one can define wireless charging as “transfer of power from a power outlet to your device, without the need of any cable.”

The wireless charging unit comprises a power transmitting pad and a receiver. The receiver may be built inside the smartphone itself, or may at times even be attached to a smartphone in the form of a case. In spite of being called “wireless”, the power transmitting pad needs to be connected to a power outlet through a cable in order to work.

How does it work?

Talking about the working of a wireless charger, it works on the principle of inductive charging. Electric current is created through the passage of electrical current through two coils in order to create an electromagnetic field.

An electrical current is produced within the gadget through the magnetic field when the receiving magnetic plate on the gadget comes in touch with the transmitter or within a particularized range of distance. The current produced in this manner is then transformed into direct current (DC). The built-in battery is then in turn charged by this current.

Which Brands and Devices support it?

Most of the brands nowadays provide devices with wireless charging support. You may be surprised to know that Samsung had released its first wireless charging supported device way back in 2011, which is almost six years before Apple’s official announcement in 2017.

Let’s take a look at some of the latest devices with wireless charging support:

Pros of Wireless Charging

  • It is a safer way to conduct power to your device.
  • More convenient as it only requires you to put your device on the charging pad.
  • The charging port of your smartphone receives less strain.
  • Soon wireless charging pads will be installed at different places across your vicinity hence if you happen to run out of battery and are not carrying a cable, your phone can still be charged.

Cons of Wireless Charging

  • It is a lot slower compared to traditional wired charging and bears no comparison with the Quick Charge technology wired chargers.
  • Once your smartphone is placed on the charging pad, you cannot use it while charging, whereas wired charging allows phone usage to a larger extent.
  • All phones do not support wireless charging.
