You use your smartphone to purchase movie tickets, download your favorite songs, and make online reservations at the new French restaurant. However, if your smartphone battery dies, it’s not possible to do any of this. And truth be told, charging your smartphone the old-fashioned way is a drag. You must plug your charger into an outlet and leave it connected long enough to give it a sufficient amount of power.
But now there is an easier method to charge your device: a smartphone charging pad.
Charge your phone wirelessly
These flat pads, which look like little mats, enable smartphone users to charge their phones wirelessly. This means no searching for an available outlet and no struggling with tangled cords. Better still, you can place many devices on your charge pads at the same time and charge all of them at one time. Charge pads work with everything from smartphones and electronic readers to iPods, iPads, and digital cameras.
This may seem like magic but charge pads depend on electro-magnetic induction charging. They generate a magnetic field, which charges the battery in your smartphones, tablets, and other gadgets.
Charge pads a technology in progress
Though these charging pads can make our lives easier they aren’t as popular as you would think. Primarily this is due to their cost; often they are as costly as the devices they charge.
One more reason is that they take up space. Consumers who want to eliminate the mess of cords don’t mind this, but this doesn’t work for people aiming to create more space on their desk.
An improving wireless world
Wireless technology is always improving; so we are bound to see charge pad technology improve. Ideally they’ll become smaller and less expensive which might make these items a must-have for modern homes.
