how does wireless charging for smartphones work

For those unfamiliar with the mechanics of wireless charging for smartphones, this section provides a concise overview. Inductive chargers, a mainstay in the market for several years, have encountered initial hurdles. Wireless charging, now a standard feature in smartphones, employs induction technology—akin to that of electronic toothbrushes—to transmit energy wirelessly over short distances using electromagnetic waves, thus supplying smartphones with power.

But what exactly constitutes a Qi-enabled mobile phone, and which phones support inductive charging? The subsequent sections address these queries. The market for wireless chargers adhering to the Qi standard has witnessed substantial growth over the past few years.

      For the P30 Huawei offers a additional Wireless Charging Case for upgrading it with qi-standard, thats why it has no mark with a star in the list below – but you’re right, i will delete the P30 from the table. Thanks!
