INDUCTIVE VS. RESONANT CHARGING

There are two different types of Wireless Charging. Here's what you need to know.

INDUCTIVE

Requires direct physical contact between the phone and wireless charger. The charging coils inside the phone and the charger must be connected and aligned.

RESONANT

Requires the phone, wireless charger and charging coils within each, to be within a specific proximity but do not need to be touching.


HOW INDUCTIVE WIRELESS CHARGING WORKS

The secret to how wireless charging works is electromagnetic induction:

  1. A transmitter coil in the charging base sends out a signal.

  2. The signal searches for a receiver coil, like the one in your compatible smartphone.

  3. When it senses one, electromagnetic induction begins.

  4. The electrons (electricity) inside the transmitter coil start to flow around in the coil
  1. This generates a magnetic field, which is sensed by the electrons in the receiver coil

  2. The electrons trapped inside the receiver coil start to flow around the coil due to the magnetic field

  3. This flow of electrons inside the receiver coil is the electricity powering the battery in your smartphone.

NOTE: Charging device must be no more than 8mm from the charging coil to receive charge from wireless power source.
