How does Wireless Charging work?

how does wireless charging for smartphones work

If you are not yet familiar with wireless charging for smartphones, you have come to the right place: Inductive chargers have been on the market for several years now and have left the “teething troubles” behind – wireless charging is often already standard on current smartphones. Wireless charging works by means of so-called induction technology, such as that familiar from electric toothbrushes or even from the kitchen. Energy is transmitted wirelessly over short distances with the help of electromagnetic waves and thus supplies the smartphone with power. But what exactly is a Qi mobile phone and which mobile phone models support inductive charging? You will find the answer in the following sections.

The market for wireless chargers based on the Qi standard has grown considerably – wireless charging is the trend and the new iPhone 11 has it on board – more and more users are returning to the easy way of charging. Because here the charging cables have had their day. Instead, the particular device is conveniently placed on the charging station. When charging wirelessly, the charging station generates a small electromagnetic field. This is located a few millimeters above the charging surface as soon as a compatible device is detected. The inductive energy exchange between the coil of the transmitter and the coil of the receiver starts immediately. The receiver coil passes the received current directly to the battery of the smartphone, which is charged as a result – the phone is charged wirelessly.

What is the Qi Standard?

Qi Wireless Charging
Qi-Standard Logo © WPC

What does Qi stand for? Qi is a universal standard for wireless charging and was developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) in 2008. It is technically based on the principle of induction, in which electromagnetic waves are used to transfer energy wirelessly over short distances. The chargers are therefore also referred to as induction chargers or inductive chargers. The Qi standard is currently used in smartphones and other small devices and has become established as a wireless charging standard.

The advantage of Qi-capable mobile phones is that wireless charging is possible with all Qi chargers, regardless of the manufacturer. Above all, it is much more convenient in everyday life if you can charge your mobile phone wirelessly instead of having to connect it to the charging cable. With the Qi standard, there are currently several different power levels (5-15 watts), but they always remain downward compatible. You will find information on this in the smartphone description. The best Qi chargers and all others in comparison can be found under the overview in the test area.

When it comes to Qi phones, some smartphone manufacturers are among the forerunners, others instead of the laggards – nevertheless, this technology had arrived on the broad mass market in 2021. Many current smartphones have already firmly established this standard. You can find more information on the topic of wireless charging in the article “Wireless charging – What is the Qi standard?

What is a Qi enabled Phone?

What is Qi enabled? A Qi enabled device f.e. a phone is Qi enabled when it’s equipped with the Qi standard (“Qi” = Chinese for “life energy”) for wireless charging per default or was designed for upgrading with this standard. They have a Qi receiver coil for inductive energy transfer. So if you want to charge your mobile wirelessly, you must first check whether it supports this standard. Current smartphones often already have the Qi standard built-in, and older models are sometimes intended for upgrading by the manufacturer – all other mobile phones generally can be upgraded with a Qi adapter. In this mobile phone overview, you will mainly find models that are compatible or Qi-certified per default by the manufacturer, ones that are intended for upgrading and others that have reliable third-party accessories to upgrade with wireless charging.

How can inductive charging via Qi be added?

Wireless Charging Case for Smartphones

Upgrading a mobile phone with Qi is easy and done quickly: For mobile phones that do not have special charging contacts for Qi receivers on the back, you can use special Qi charging pads. These are attached to the back of the smartphone and connected to the battery of the device – the mobile phone can already charge inductively: By induction, the energy from the charger can now flow via the Qi receiver coil into the mobile phone battery. Wireless Charging Cases are an excellent alternative – some of these are even available in a special form with an additional built-in battery as so-called Qi battery cases.

Which current Smartphones can be charged wirelessly?

The latest Qi certified smartphones are always at the top of the mobile phone list or overview. Modern smartphones, especially from Samsung and recently also from Apple, often have the Qi standard already built into a faster “Fast Wireless Charging” version. The power levels for wireless charging are 5 watts for all older models and Qi adapters, 7.5 watts for the newer Apple iPhone models and up to 10 watts for Samsung’s latest smartphones or up to 11 watts for Google Pixel 4. Select the respective model from the Qi mobile phone overview and find suitable accessories.

Samsung Wireless Charging Phones

Wireless Charging Samsung PhonesWhich samsung phone can charge wirelessly? Just click on the “samsung filter” in the table above and find out. Samsung is often referred to as the pioneer of wireless charging. This is not entirely correct, as Nokia already used Qi technology before. But if you want to charge your Samsung phone wirelessly, you’re in luck: Samsung is currently the provider with the significant number of smartphones that can be charged with qi. The South Korean manufacturer has been using this wireless charging standard since the Samsung Galaxy S6. The company also launched a separate Qi charger for each model series. No wonder, then, that Samsung is often mentioned as a pioneer when it comes to Qi. It is also not surprising that the manufacturer is the market leader for the corresponding Qi chargers.

Samsung recently proved its pioneering role once again by introducing the completely wireless Bluetooth headphones “Galaxy Buds” for the Galaxy S10. These can not only be charged from any Qi charging station, but also by simply placing them on the back of the Galaxy S10. As leading android user, you can also find the best android phones with wireless charging among the samsung phones in the list above.

Wireless Charging for Apple iPhone

Wireless Charging for Apple iPhoneSince the Apple iPhone was once the pioneer of smartphones and the manufacturer with the apple in his logo provided one or two innovations in the mobile phone sector, this does not apply to wireless charging for quite a while. Because the iPhone was upgraded with the wireless charging option according to the Qi standard relatively late. Only the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X and newer models can currently be conveniently charged in their original state without a charging cable. The new iPhone 11 series also supports wireless charging using the Qi standard.

How can Smartphones be upgraded with Qi Charging?

You dont have a qi charging phone? No problem. If you own a smartphone that has not been supplied with Qi by the manufacturer, you can add Qi Standard to the phone like the following: This requires a universal Wireless Charging Adapter with a micro-USB connection. There are also corresponding adapters or Qi sleeves that are specially designed for one mobile phone model. Also, completely new back panels can be purchased for some smartphones to enable wireless charging. In the coming years, however, Qi is likely to become standard equipment on modern smartphones.

Qi enabled Phone: Conclusion on Wireless Charging for Mobile Phones

Wireless Charging, or charging via Qi, is now standard equipment on modern smartphones – many manufacturers, above all Samsung and ultimately Apple, have opted for the wireless charging standard and build wireless charging into their mobile phone models as standard. Current Samsung devices, but also the new iPhone models, now even use a faster, so-called “Fast Wireless Charging” standard, which is of course downward compatible and can also be used with older Qi chargers. In the future, wireless or inductive charging has now also arrived in everyday life on smartphones and is experiencing a renewed upswing with Apple’s decision to use this technology. The supply of fresh energy is quickly becoming a problem with increasingly powerful smartphones. If you can charge your mobile phone wirelessly, access to it in everyday life will be at least a little easier. The ever-growing spread of wireless Qi Chargers is also contributing to this, as this technology is also becoming more and more popular in public spaces, furthermore wireless charging is likely to establish itself in mobile phones and other small devices.

In the future, mobile phones should also be able to give energy to each other: The whole thing is called “Reverse Wireless Charging” and offers completely new possibilities in everyday life – the charger is no longer needed at all. However, there is one shortcoming: Reverse Wireless Charging in its current form will probably charge at a much slower rate than is usual for current wireless chargers. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting feature and very helpful in case of an emergency. However, this innovation is primarily intended for the inductive charging of smaller devices, such as Bluetooth headphones or smart watches. This has just been confirmed for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 including the Bluetooth headphones “Galaxy Buds”. Reliable inductive chargers can be found, for example, from the manufacturers Belkin, Anker or ZENS. We are curious and keep you up to date here at Qi-Wireless-Charging.net.

    Really good thread but why don’t more/all smartphones have wireless charging as standard? Is it a failing standard?

    1. Qi-Wireless-Charging.net

      wireless charging is a comfort-feature which is mostly added in premium smartphones, but also cheaper phones with wireless charging are existing.

      the market is continously growing and qi standard is quite the contrary to a failing standard – most of latest high-end smartphones from well known manufacturers have it built-in by default and also offering own accessoires like qi chargers.

    Huawei P30 doesn’t have wireless a charge. Only the pro.

    1. Qi-Wireless-Charging.net

      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!
