Wireless Charging Explained
Wireless charging or inductive charging, is a cable-free and easy way to charge your compatible devices by simply placing it down on the wireless charging pad. You still do need a wall charger and cable to provide power to the wireless charger.
Wireless chargers use electromagnetic induction to transfer energy to the receiver induction coil located in the center of your phone. Smartphones with this receiver are called “Qi-compatible”. To take advantage of wireless charging technology, you will need a Qi-compatible device.
The wireless charger has a similar copper coil called the transmitter. When you place your phone on top of the charger, the transmitter coil generates an electromagnetic field that the receiver then converts to electricity for the phone battery.

Qi is an establised, evolving wireless charging standard owned by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and backed by more than 200 leading companies. Their goal is to deliver wireless charging easily and safely, while ensuring compatibility across all devices that bear the Qi logo.

Wireless charging technology is short range, so you’ll need to place your Qi-compatible device directly on top and centered to the pad for proper charging.

Note: Remove metal cases or cases thicker than 6 millimeters. Other foreign objects will interfere with charging.
