Wireless charging has now become a standard feature for smartphones. This technology has been around in Android since 2012 and now Apple’s latest flagship the iPhone X also supports wireless charging.
Although wireless chargers are not completely wireless, because they still have to be plugged into a wall outlet themselves, but they provide a very convenient way of charging by just placing your phone on a charging pad, and know that after a while it will be good to go.
There are mainly two types of wireless charging out today: Qi and PMA. Most of the smartphones and tech devices these days support Qi wireless charging.
