A wireless charging unit is a practical solution to charge multiple wireless devices in the home, in the car or in public places, such as restaurants and coffee shops. They are extremely easy to use and do not rely on connectors or cables to operate. There are several standards for this wireless technology. The most popular is called Qi, which is supported by the majority of the major brands. However, most of the phone manufacturers have created a suitable system to give a quick and easy method to charge the mobile devices.

Here are a few benefits of using the wireless charging unit:


Any device that is built to support this type of technology can be charged without the need to rely on the traditional cords. The phone, tablet, watch or similar device is simply placed on the charging station with no need to plug-in cords. Also, the changing station has the ability to charge many devices from different brands so there is no need to have a separate cord handy for charging individual items.

Safe way to transfer power

Wireless charging is seen as a safe way to transfer power and will not produce any kind of electric shock or spark. Also, they are designed to detect the amount of power needed for each device to avoid over charging.

Reduces strain on the charging port

An area of the mobile device that experiences a high failure rate is the charging port. The repeated plugging in and unplugging of the cord can easily wear this part overtime.

Already installed in various places

There are plenty of food and coffee chains that have the Qi technology installed on their premises to give customers complete convenience to charge mobile devices. This is certain to be helpful when away from home and the battery power is starting to get a little low.

Are there any negatives

In addition to the wide-ranging benefits of using the wireless charging unit, it is also worth considering the negatives of using this type of technology.

A common issue noticed is the low power output, which is in the region of 5 watts. This is less efficient than a 2 amp plug, so the traditional method of using a wall socket may be the quickest option to get the phone fully charged. Also, the phone is still usable while being charged via a power cord, but this isn't the same with a charging station. Once the phone is lifted from the station, the charging instantly stops. A further issue is the fact it is a newer technology, which means it is still more expensive to use.
