Why You Need A Qi Wireless Charger For Your Cell Phone

Why You Need A Qi Wireless Charger For Your Cell Phone

What makes life easy and fun?

To me the fun of life is discovering new information, technology, and just about anything I didn’t know about on YouTube.

As we test and try new items for our articles we are always asking the questions: Will this help our readers? Do we like it and use it? Does it make life easier or better somehow?

Does your family have a charging pile in the kitchen or somewhere like the one below? We are now charging up our cars for goodness sake!!

Do you spend your time waiting for the future? Thinking of the hand swipe computer in Iron Man and spreading the information around the room on multiple screens in the air or just talking to your computer like Captain Kirk on Star Trek? Well, it’s coming!!

Qi Wireless Charging is an old but new technology. It has been around for 100 years but was not reliable enough with consistency in systems and technology to be useful to the average consumer.

Some day you will not have to recharge these mediums but for now, if you can just lay your cell phone or apple watch on a pad or stand as opposed to plugging it in and everything that goes along with that then we believe it has reached that threshold.

The Smartphone Wireless Charging Era Begins

It was early 2015 that Samsung embedded a wireless charging circuit into its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Smartphones, making wireless charging a basic option for smartphone users for the first time.

Samsung made its first Wireless Charging Pad (Below) a circular shape which made it easier for everyone to locate the center of the charging pad. This is where you plug the pad into the wall but the charger connects to the smartphone via an electromagnetic field. Later that year, Samsung introduced the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad.

Samsung Charging Pad

In 2016, Samsung created the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand. This new stand charger had coils that allowed you to see your phone sitting up or sideways or watch videos while charging your phone. 

Now, Samsung’s fast-charging Wireless Charger has a Convertible function which lets you use it both as a charging pad and stand that you can also fold and carry for easy mobility.

Wireless Charging designs continue to evolve.

Older iPhones

Wireless charging technology continues to evolve and Apple added Wireless Charging to its 2017 iPhone lineup. If you have an iPhone Xs, Xr, X, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone 8 you can just place your phone on your charging pad or stand and you’re done.

If you have an older iPhone model though you have a problem because you still have to use Apple’s “Planned Obsolescence” Lightning Cable that constantly wears out on purpose. (Oh wait that’s just my cables). But there are alternatives out there that are simple Qi Wireless Receivers and Wireless Charging Pads like the one below.

This Qi Wireless Charging Receiver can slip under your iPhone’s case to instantly add wireless charging to your older iPhone.  It also works with Wireless Charging Android devices such as Samsung Galaxy 6 7 8 9 etc…

Benefits of Wireless Charging

The benefits of wireless charging are that wear on the charging port is reduced as mentioned earlier because you do not need to plug in your phone to an “Old Fashioned Charging Cable” all of the time something that often leads to charging port faults and requires repair.

There is no evidence that wireless charging degrades your smartphone battery faster than wired charging. It also doesn’t charge it as fast but is getting faster every day.

The Qi Wireless Chargers themselves also have no wear and tear and we are starting to see them in airports and public places like hotels, restaurants, and many other places. Car brands offering in-car wireless phone charging are Audi, Cadillac, Chevy, Ford, Kia, Lexus, Mini. Volkswagen, BMW, Hyundai, Mercedes, Peugeot, Tesla, Toyota, and Volvo.

So you will continue to see this technology continue to appear as we convert to it over the next ten years.
