Technology has made our life so much easy! We can even charge our favourite gadgets with an absolute wire free charger.
Such an amazing brain child of technology is being presented to us by one of the renowned brands Samsung. The product is commercially termed as SAMSUNG WIRELESS CHARGING PAD – existing in two colour variants, namely, Black and white.
After the tech giant Apple Inc introduced this kind of product to the market, Samsung retraced the path as well. The charger comes at a reasonable price range within 1-2k.
Taking a deeper look inside the technology working behind the milestone achievement: A note for the ‘TechSavy’ audience
Wireless charging is actually charging a device with the help of electromagnetic induction. It is done using a charging station (source of electricity) which sends energy to a device (battery, to be more specific) with the help of electromagnetic coupling. The chargers use an induction coil to create an alternating electromagnetic field from the source (charging base), and a second induction coil in the portable device receiving power from the electromagnetic field and converting it back into electric current to charge the battery.

The most important lookout: specs of the product

Its main feature is fast charging.
It is very light weight and looks like a feather light Disk, protected with plastic. It comes with a micro USB cable which is plugged into the pad and power is transferred with the help of a micro USB adaptor. So, we can say that its wireless, but not completely. The phone is being charged only if it is set in the middle of the charging pad. While charging, the indicator light is blue in colour and turns green whenever charging is complete. It charges the device even when a protective case is being used although the process becomes slower.
It’s a simple and portable, easy to use device coming with a very fair price of 50$ (approx) when compared with other products of somewhat-similar specs.
This product is not a necessity, but is of a one step ahead in technology kind. Looking through all its pros and cons, the product is recommendable.
