How does Wireless Charging work?

how does wireless charging for smartphones work

If you’re not familiar with how wireless charging for smartphones works, then you’ve come to the right place. This section will give you a quick overview of how wireless charging works as well as a glimpse into the market for wireless chargers that are based on the Qi standard.

Inductive chargers have been on the market for several years at this point and have left some “teething” troubles in their wake. Smartphones usually already use wireless charging as a current standard; wireless charging uses induction technology (similar to what electronic toothbrushes use) to wirelessly transmit energy over short distances using electromagnetic waves to supply smartphones with power.

But what, exactly, is a Qi enabled mobile phone, and which mobile phones support inductive charging? The following sections have your answer. The market for wireless chargers that are based on the Qi standard has grown considerably in recent years. Wireless charging is now a popular trend and has even gotten iPhones on board.

Rather than use a cable charger, wireless charging lets you conveniently place your device on a mobile charging station. This charging station generates a small electromagnetic field that’s located a few millimeters above its charging surface once the station detects a compatible device. The exchange of inductive energy between the coils of the transmitter and receiver begins immediately after placing your phone on the charging station. The receiver coil passes a current directly to your smartphone’s battery, which then charges 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) founded in 2008. It is based on the principle of induction, which states that electromagnetic waves are used to wirelessly transfer energy over short distances. The chargers are also called induction chargers or inductive chargers. The Qi standard is currently used for smartphones and other small devices and has established itself as a wireless charging standard.

More than 360 member companies belong to the WPC, and all of them conform to the standards that the Qi Certification Program outlines. The program relies on a network of independent and authorized test laboratories located around the globe that test for safety, interoperability, and functionality. These labs use various test procedures when testing these specific properties, and only Qi-certified devices may use the Qi logo.

The Qi standard considers multiple precautions regarding customer safety that include foreign object detection and heat shielding. Independent laboratories that conduct tests on devices that have not been certified by the WPC indicate that non-certified products may reach temperatures as high as 93 degrees Celsius. These temperatures can cause third-degree burns, which is why it’s important to make sure that Qi compatible phones carry the WPC-authorized Qi logo.

How fast is Wireless Charging?

Qi enabled phones have the advantage of being able to wirelessly charge with all Qi chargers, regardless of a charger’s manufacturer. More than anything, it’s highly convenient to be able to wirelessly charge a mobile phone rather than connecting it to a charging cable. Thanks to the Qi standard, Qi charging uses power levels usually ranging from 5-15 watts, and Qi chargers are always downward compatible. You can learn more about the best Qi chargers and their different power levels in our smartphone descriptions.

Most modern smartphone models support the speedier Fast Wireless Charging level of 10-15 watts. Depending on the manufacturer, though, the way this charging level affects a device’s performance can vary, and it demands a suitable Qi charger to achieve optimal performance. The current level for iPhones, for example, is 7.5, 12 or 15 watts when using the MagSafe charger. The Google Pixel 6 can reach power levels as high as 23 watts. These days, manufacturers typically design wireless chargers that adhere to the Qi standard for multiple power levels.

Although Qi technology arrived on the mass market in 2024, some smartphone manufacturers are among Qi technology’s forerunners, while others are still struggling to adopt it. Multiple smartphones that are currently available have firmly established the Qi standard, and you can learn more about them in our ‘What is the Qi Standard?’ article.

Samsung’s Fast Wireless Charging:

  • 15 watts: from Galaxy S20-series on / Galaxy Note 10+
  • 12 watts: from Galaxy S10-series on
  • 11 watts: Galaxy Note 10
  • 9 watts: from S7-series on

Apple’s Fast Wireless Charging:

  • 15 watts: from iPhone 12 on (incl. MagSafe)
  • 12 watts: iPhone 13 mini / iPhone 12 mini
  • 7.5 watts: from iPhone 8 on + iPhone SE

Qi enabled devices

What Are Qi enabled Phones?

Phones that are Qi enabled use the Qi standard (“Qi” translates to “life energy” in Chinese) by default for wireless charging or are designed to be upgraded to use the Qi standard. These phones use a Qi receiver coil that enables the transfer of inductive energy. If you’re interested in wirelessly charging your mobile phone, you’ll want to verify that it supports the Qi standard.

Most smartphones include a built-in Qi standard, while older devices may require an upgrade from their manufacturer. Generally speaking, you can upgrade most other mobile phones with a Qi adapter. You can find Qi compatible and Qi-certified smartphone models in our mobile phone overview as well as models that are designed to be upgraded.

How Do You Add Inductive Charging Via Qi?

Wireless Charging Case for Smartphones

You can upgrade your mobile phone with Qi quickly and easily: if the back of your mobile phone doesn’t include charging contacts specifically for Qi receivers, simply use special Qi charging pads. You can attach these charging pads to the back of your phone, which connect to your device’s battery and enable inductive charging.

Induction allows the energy from a Qi charger to flow from a Qi receiver coil to your mobile device’s battery. Wireless charging cases are great alternatives to charging pads and are sometimes available with additional built-in batteries.

How To Make Your Device Qi Compatible?

Qi-certified and compatible devices include built-in Qi receive coils. Older devices or devices that don’t include receiver coils, though, can still be converted into wireless charging phones that use the Qi standard. Certain smartphone models use specific charging contacts that function with Qi receivers, while others need universal charging pads to wirelessly charge.


Current Mobile Phones With Wireless Charging

The top of our mobile phone list always includes the latest Qi enabled phones. Modern smartphone models, particularly models developed by Samsung (and more recently Apple) typically include a built-in Qi standard. Older phone models and adapters usually use power levels of five watts for wireless charging. More recent Apple iPhone models use power levels of 15 watts. Samsung’s most recent smartphone models use power levels of up to ten watts. The Google Pixel 6 uses a power level of 23 watts!

You can choose your desired smartphone model from our Qi mobile phone overview to locate suitable wireless charging accessories.

Samsung Wireless Charging Phones

Wireless Charging Samsung Phones

Need to know which Samsung phones support contactless charging? Simply select the “Samsung filter” in the above table to find out.

Although Nokia was technically the first company to use Qi technology, Samsung is widely regarded as the pioneer of wireless charging. If you need to wirelessly charge your Samsung phone, then you’re in luck: Samsung currently offers the largest number of Qi compatible phones. The South Korean manufacturer has used the Qi charging standard since the release of its Samsung Galaxy S6 model, and it has also launched additional Qi chargers for subsequent model series. It should come as no surprise, then, that Samsung is the Qi charger market leader.

Samsung recently released its wireless “Galaxy Buds” Bluetooth headphones, further cementing its status as a pioneer of wireless charging. These headphones can be charged using any charging station and can even charge by being placed on the back of the Galaxy S10. If you’re an Android smartphone user, you can find some of the best Qi-charging phones among the above list’s Samsung devices.

Wireless Charging for Apple iPhones

Wireless Charging for Apple iPhoneWhen it comes to smartphones, no brand names are more well-known than Apple. The Apple iPhone (and of course, its legendary inventor Steve Jobs) is renowned for its innovations in the mobile phone sector. With that said, the iPhone adopted contactless charging technology relatively late according to the Qi standard, as the iPhone 8 was the first model to adopt wireless charging using the Qi standard, followed by all newer models.

How To Upgrade Any Smartphone To Make It Qi Compatible

Don’t currently have a phone that has wireless charging enabled? No problem – you can easily add the Qi standard to your device if you own a smartphone whose manufacturer didn’t supply it with Qi.

You’ll need a universal wireless charging adapter that has a micro-USB connection. You can also find Qi sleeves and adapters that are made specifically for certain smartphone models. You can also purchase new back panels (for certain smartphone models) that enable contactless charging. Keep in mind that Qi is likely to become a standard inclusion on most smartphones soon.

Qi Enabled Phones: Conclusion On Wireless Charging For Mobile Phones

Wireless charging, or Qi enabled charging, is now commonly included in most modern smartphone models designed by a wide range of manufacturers. Samsung and Apple are the most notable manufacturers that have chosen to invest in contactless charging and include wireless charging in their smartphone models.

Current Samsung smartphone models as well as newer iPhone models are equipped with a faster “Fast Wireless Charging” standard – this standard is downward compatible with lower wireless charging power levels and is also compatible with older Qi chargers. Wireless or inductive charging is quickly becoming more common in day-to-day life and is enjoying a renewed level of recognition thanks to Apple’s greater investment in Qi technology.

The availability of fresh energy is fast becoming an issue for smartphones that are becoming ever more powerful. So, if you’re able to charge your smartphone wirelessly, being able to use it in everyday life can become a bit easier. Additionally, the growing proliferation of wireless Qi charging is also contributing to Qi technology’s rising popularity; Qi chargers are ideal for use in public spaces and are therefore becoming more well-known among mobile phone users.

Mobile phones should ideally be able to exchange energy in the near future: this concept is what’s known as “reverse wireless charging” which we briefly touched on in the Qi compatible Phones List. It offers many promising possibilities, although it does have a glaring shortcoming: reverse wireless charging in its current state is working with the slower 5 watts. Nevertheless, this concept is highly interesting and can prove immensely useful in emergencies.

Reverse wireless charging is intended mainly for smaller mobile devices that use inductive charging, such as smartwatches and Bluetooth headphones. One of the earliest and most popular instances of reverse wireless charging being included in a smaller mobile device’s design traces back to the Samsung Galaxy S10. The release of the Galaxy S10 model, which included the “Galaxy Buds” Bluetooth headphones, marked the beginning of Samsung’s foray into reverse wireless charging technology. As of August 2022, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra is its latest model that uses reverse wireless charging technology per the Qi standard.  Manufacturers such as Belkin, Anker, and Zens beside Samsung and Apple all offer robust inductive chargers.
