What is wireless charging?

The new generation of smartphones supports wireless charging, leaving conventional chargers as things of the past. But is this innovation useful?

Wireless charging is, as the name suggests, charging your phone without using wires plugged directly to a power supply.

How does wireless charging work?

Wireless charging works as a result of electromagnetic induction. The energy is transferred from the charger to the receiver, using an induction coil that creates an alternating electromagnetic field. The coil of your smartphone’s receiver converts this energy into electricity, which feeds directly into the battery, charging it accordingly.

Does it damage the battery? 

Some people say that wireless charging negatively affects the battery, but studies suggest otherwise, as long as you set it correctly and do not let it fully discharge. Keeping the battery always above 50% can prolong battery life by 400%.

Does wireless charging work if my phone has a case?

The quick answer is “yes”. The charging power is able to pass through a few millimeters of plastic without damaging anything. However, the thicker the case, the more likely it is that the charger will not be able to function properly. 

There is also one thing to keep in mind, the case should not be made of aluminum because it can break the wireless charge. That is why the trend these days is to change phone materials like Apple did with the iPhone

Moreover, if you use a low-quality wireless charger, it may not be powerful enough to pass through the phone case. That is why we recommend using a high-quality power bank like the DEVIA Wireless Power Bank 8000mah.
